Recognise anyone?

Last week brought us a rather entertaining Nintendo Direct broadcast from Japan, which focused on upcoming titles on the way to 3DS in Nintendo's homeland and, hopefully, other regions as well. For those of us that don't speak Japanese half the fun was figuring out what was going on, though if you're still uncertain on anything you can still check out our Nintendo Direct guide.

One title that stood out for us was rhythm-based eShop title Rhythm Hunter: HarmoKnight, which showed plucky heroes running along and bashing or shooting enemies with well-timed crossbow shots or a rather large stick. It's a new IP from the developers of the Pokémon series, Game Freak, with happy music and bright, vibrant visuals to give you a warm fuzzy feeling.

This one actually hits the Japanese eShop tomorrow, and as it's quite high on the list of titles we want to see localised we've brought together some screenshots that Nintendo has recently shared, below. There's also a video of the Nintendo Direct trailer for you to enjoy, because who doesn't want to see a giant bull's head with wings get finished off by a well-timed whack of a rhythm stick?
