Posted by James Newton

Starting Hallowe'en early

We took our first steps with Gabrielle's Ghostly Groove: Monster Mix on WiiWare back in May, and now the spooky series has launched on 3DS as Natsume announces Gabrielle's Ghostly Groove 3D is available across North America from today.

The 3DS's first dancing game follows Gabrielle, a poor girl who's sneezed her soul right out of her body, and her attempts to recover it by dancing and befriending monsters. We never said it made sense, but if you're after a ghost-themed dancing game for 3DS you might want to grab $39.99 and visit your local games emporium.

Getting this for sure. Loved the DS version I played last year at E3.

I reviewed the WiiWare one. It was cute enough, and young kids will be charmed by it.

This is completely different from the WiiWare game in terms of gameplay. This is a bit more like Elite Beat Agents. At least the DS game was. :D

Charming character, but... rhythm adventure... kind of wish it was a platformer or an action-adventure.

Actually, regarding the backstory, it harkens back to the origins of saying "God Bless You" when people sneeze. It was believed that sneezing was the soul trying to escape the body or could result in the soul leaving the body because, apparently, people died after particularly volitile sneezes, so people nearby would say that for them. Or something to that extent.

I can't wait for this masterpiece to warm the cartridge slot of my 3DS. I'm expecting your 11/10 review soon where you declare this game to be so spectacular that it brings world peace, and ends all wars.

I'm actually interested in picking this one up. It looks like it could be fun. Not sure if I am willing to pay $40 for it though. I guess that I'll just wait for the review.

Ill probably wait to see if it goes down in price, seems like a game I'd beat too quickly... like Cubic Ninja, but I played that for 10 hours

Looks amazingly adorable. I could see me getting this for about 20 € if it's good. But first it would have to come to Europe of course.
