Get ready for more rhythm action in the new year

It has been revealed, via today's Nintendo Direct presentations, that Rhythm Hunter: HarmoKnight will be making its way to the west next year. Pokémon developer Game Freak released the rhythm platformer on the 3DS eShop in Japan some months back, and the game will now be introduced to North America and Europe in early 2013.

Game Freak decided to take a new direction with HarmoKnight, a musical platformer that sees the player run through stages collecting notes and attacking enemies to the beat of the music. There's no specific release date yet, though the European Nintendo Direct mentioned that it'll be available in March 2013.

Will you be dancing to the beat of Rhythm Hunter: HarmoKnight's drum next year?
