Nintendo Announces Rhythm Heaven Megamix For The West

Nintendo announced in its most recent Direct that the newest iteration in the Rhythm Heaven franchise will be making it to American shores. Rhythm Heaven Megamix functions as a “best of” compilation of the series’ rhythmic mini-games.

Rhythm Heaven Megamix is a blend of old and new mini-games infused with vibrant colors and bizarre humor. These mini-games are broken up with story fragments, and they eventually culminate into a mashup “remix” stage.

The new title boasts 100 mini-games: 70 from previous titles, 20 completely new ones, and 10 reimagined from the series' past. This includes games from the original Japanese-only Rhythm Tengoku, which never made into the cartridge slots of American Game Boy Advances.

Rhythm Heaven Megamix will release for Nintendo 3DS sometime in 2016. To read our thoughts on Rhythm Heaven Fever for the Wii, head over here.
