New Stills From SEGA's Emperor Napoleon Rhythm Game

Sleek beat agents
The game with the best name ever — SEGA's Japanese 3DS game Rhythm Phantom Thief R: Inheritance of the Emperor Napoleon — just threw a few new screenshots our way with all the panache of a hat flung across the dance floor before landing perfectly on a hat stand.
Blending button, touch screen and motion controls, the game looks to blend story, animation and rhythm gameplay to create something altogether unique. The shots certainly look interesting, but only time will tell if the game has more than just an amazing name to hold over Elite Beat Agents, its clear inspiration.
SEGA also just opened its official site for the game at r.sega.jp, a snappy URL but one the world's already overworked keyboards will appreciate. It also contains some funky harpsichord, double bass and trumpet jazz, so there's that too.
The game is due out in Japan this winter. No word on a release elsewhere yet.
