[E3 2008] What on Earth is Rhythm Heaven?


Rhythm Heaven didn’t seem to get much of a spotlight from Nintendo at E3, but based on what I saw of their press conference showing and have sifted through in their press kit it’s one of the only genuinely compelling titles from Nintendo’s upcoming lineup. I have no earthly idea what the game is even about yet other than it’s a stylus-tapping rhythm game for the DS with tunes composed by Japanese music producer TSUNKU, but from what I’ve seen from the following trailer and concept art I get kind of a WarioWare vibe from the cute, oddball characters and strange-looking activities. I simply can’t resist a quirky game like this. Whatever the hell Rhythm Heaven is, I want it and I want it now!
