When I die, I want to go to Rhythm Heaven.
If asked to describe Rhythm Heaven Fever in one short phrase, I'd say it's “a horse of a different color!” Like Rhythm Heaven and the WarioWare games before, Rhythm Heaven Fever does an excellent job of painting itself as a game different from virtually any other. It's more unique, more quirky, and more inspired than a lot of what I've seen in the past. For a title budgeted for release at $30, there's certainly plenty of content to keep the original feeling going for some time.
Yesterday, Nintendo mentioned an entirely new title, revived one some believed was dead, and reaffirmed development of a third.
As you can see in the videos preceding this news story, Nintendo showed off a handful of new Wii titles at an investor's meeting yesterday. Rhythm Heaven and the long-developed Kirby Wii game were two titles previously announced by Nintendo showcased at the event. When speaking of the Kirby title, Iwata apologized for its delay. Gameplay seems to be altered some from prior videos released, showing a lone Kirby without the created buddies or totem poles showcased in previously released screenshots and videos. Rhythm Heaven's video shows the game maintains it's quirky themes and simple-styled gameplay, but at this time, not much more is known about either game.
