Rhythm Heaven Fever News
"I will always support you, Nintendo"
Japanese boy Hibiki Sakai was diagnosed with retinoblastoma in both eyes at the age of one and a half, and following the surgical procedures necessary to save his life has been completely blind since the age of two. That hasn't stopped him indulging in many passions; he's a talented drummer and, like many...
Pokemon Sun and Moon! Beat the Beat! Exile's End! More!
Another week begins, and brings with it the European Nintendo Download Update details for the goodies we can expect this week. The 3DS has huge retail arrivals, while there are some tempting download-only options to be found on the Wii U in particular. Let's get to the details. Wii U eShop:...
Time to warm up
Can you feel the Rhythm? Nintendo of Europe has announced that Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise will be making its way onto the Wii U eShop before the end of the month. This hidden gem was a critical success in the last generation, helping the series become more of a presence in the west. Recently, of course, we had Rhythm Heaven...
Harvest Moon: Skytree Village! Umbrella Chronicles! Rhythm Heaven! More!
It's Nintendo Download Update time, and the North American line-up is has been fully confirmed. It has some decent options, with the Wii U and New 3DS Virtual Consoles offering a few varied titles from the Wii and SNES. The Wii U eShop has an intriguing new download-only...
Resi! Rhythm Heaven! Mega Man X3!
It's not exaggeration to say that this week's European Nintendo Download Update is one of the worst we've seen, though those with a NES Mini pre-order will find some solace in that. North America, on the other hand, could have a decent week ahead. Three titles have popped up with 10th November dates on Nintendo of...
Skip to the beat
Nearly five months after it hit North America, Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise lands in Europe today. The European release lets you choose between the English and Japanese soundtracks, a feature exclusive to Europe, but is otherwise unchanged from its North American release. If you're interested in some Wii-based rhythm, check out...
It's certainly... yellow
The North American release of Rhythm Heaven Fever has one of the most deliriously colourful box arts we've ever seen, but Nintendo of Europe has taken a very different approach with its cover, as you can see. Art for the European version — known as Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise — tones down the golden theme of the...
Better late than never
Great news, music fans — the latest edition of the musical equivalent of WarioWare, Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise is bringing the party to Europe on 6th July. It's been out in North America since February under the slightly snappier name Rhythm Heaven Fever. Perhaps to make up for the late release, Nintendo has prepared an...
Don't forget your groove
Nintendo has announced a swanky launch event to celebrate the upcoming North American release of Rhythm Heaven Fever. Taking place on Friday 10th February, the evening will include a chance to play the game as well as freebies, food and other entertainment. The launch is open to the public on a first-come, first-served...
And that's why we love it
Of course the new video for Rhythm Heaven Fever defies explanation: that's a series trademark by now. Dancing lobsters, on-stage baseball and a cryptic message in the final frame all make this one of those trailers you'll tell the grandkids about. North America, you get the game on 13th February.
Contains a lot of monkeys
Rhythm Heaven Fever is just one month away in North America, and Nintendo is upping the tempo with a new teaser trailer. Showing off a selection of bizarre games — our favourite is the high-fiving monkeys on a clock face — the game's certainly lost none of its imagination in the transition to Wii. Here's the trailer to get you amped up for its 13th February release.
It really is
Now we know that Rhythm Heaven Fever is out in North America on 13th February 2012 it's time to take a look at the shiny art that'll greet you upon arrival at your chosen purveyor of video gaming goods. Nintendo of America's gone for a very different approach to the slightly staid cover on Rhythm Heaven, throwing as much colour and as many bizarre characters as will fit on a Wii box..
Not long to wait
Nintendo of America's release schedule just confirmed release dates for three Wii games due out in early 2012. Rhythm Heaven Fever is the earliest first-party release, arriving on 13th February — just in time for Valentine's Day. It'll retail at $29.99 too, making it an even better present for that special someone. That's followed...
Picks up a new name
The tentative name for Rhythm Heaven on Wii may have just been discarded, as the latest Nintendo release schedule has rechristened the upcoming beat 'em up (that's a pun.) The official title for the North American release now seems to be Rhythm Heaven Fever, though it's spelt "RHYTHEM HEAVEN FEVER" in the document. It's still attached to a TBA release date though, so..
A good week
Last week 3DS sales leapt in Japan after the console dropped from 25,000 Yen to 15,000 Yen, and it's still ruling the roost this week according to Media Create's figures. The console sold 105,639 units to sit pretty at the top of the chart, outselling all other consoles combined. It was still a sharp decline from the previous week...
18 titles spread across Wii, 3DS and DS
Nintendo is set for its return to Comic-Con in San Diego this year and among other activities, the special Nintendo Gaming Lounge will be set up so that attendees can stop by and try out some of the latest releases. As well as Nintendo's booth (#5135) at Comic-Con, the Nintendo Gaming Lounge situated in the...
Tapping never felt so good
At last week's Nintendo press event in the Netherlands, we played several games, but one which has oddly not seen much coverage around the web yet is the latest entry in the Rhythm Heaven series. Scheduled for release in Japan next week, the demo Nintendo had on offer was completely untouched by translators, and was thus...
Rhythm Heaven (a tentative title for now) is coming to Wii and it looks good. That's our summary of the trailer below, which shows more of the rhythm-based gaming you've come to expect from the original DS instalment. With the precision of button controls — no motion support here — and a line-up of robots, peas, forks and more, this looks to be one of the more interesting titles..
In our imaginations anyway
It's still not got an official name or a release date in the West, but Rhythm Heaven does have some new screenshots to look at, so that's something. Nintendo posted a few new shots of the game — which is controlled entirely with buttons — and will have it in playable form at the show, so look out for Corbie's hands-on impressions in the near future. Let's hope we all..
It's all about buttons
Nintendo's reluctance to reveal much of anything about the tentatively-titled Rhythm Heaven on Wii is a cause of much consternation, but one nugget we can share should enough happiness to unfurrow your brow. Due in the summer, the game will be playable entirely with buttons, meaning no need to use your Wii Remote as a fork,...
Includes footage of (presumably) a new Rhythm Heaven game
As part of their recent conference, Nintendo of Japan's just released a video showcasing some hotly anticipated games in the upcoming Japanese Wii line-up. Everything from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword to Super Mario Collection Special Pack and Mario Sports Mix
