The ponies have stormed the gates of Rhythm Heaven

It looks like there is a mod for Rhythm Heaven Fever that swaps the native graphics for My Little Pony characters. That's what the description of the above YouTube video says anyway. Does anyone out there want to follow...

Get your groovy ass on the Rhythm Heaven Fever webpage

Rhythm Heaven Fever hit last week, and it's been great to see the Western world's reaction to the game. As you can see in these launch event coverage videos (one from Dtoid and one from Nintendo), some people are practically...

Rhythm Heaven Fever's orgasmic wood people CONFIRMED

Here's a compilation of some footage of Rhythm Heaven Fever, the English language version of Minna no Rhythm Tengoku. How do you think it sounds? Personally, I like the English voice work here, but I think I'll still prefer ...

Is this our first look at Rhythm Heaven Fever?

I keep forgetting that Minna No Rhythm Tengoku (the Japanese Rhythm Heaven game on the Wii) and Rhythm Heaven Fever are technically two different titles. When it comes to gameplay, they're the same game, but when it comes to...

Rhythm Heaven Fever infects North America February 2012

Friends, we've weathered hard times these past months. Nintendo faithful across the land have endured quite the drought. So few compelling titles may have tested the resolve of less devout fans, but not us. No, we patiently w...

Rhythm Heaven Wii is now Rhythm Heaven Fever

In Japan, the latest Rhythm Heaven game is called Minna No Rhythm Tengoku, which roughly translates to Everybody's Rhythm Heaven. It looks like Nintendo of America is going with a different direction for the game's Western lo...

It Came from Japan! Rhythm Tengoku photo
It Came from Japan! Rhythm Tengoku
by Allistair Pinsof

[It Came from Japan! is a series where I seek out and review the weirdest, most original and enjoyable titles that never left the Land of the Rising Sun.]

Japanese games often possess a delirious quality that leaves some people scratching their heads and others delighting in the madness. Rhythm Tengoku, filled with characters and personality that are uniquely Japanese, is one such game.

Yet, all the quirky characters and scenarios feel like they occupy a coherent world, one where the offbeat antics of the WarioWare series successfully merge with the rhythm genre to form a portable classic that never made it to the States. Although many have heard about it and may have played its sequels, it remains an obscure gem.

E3: Wii U gets Rhythm Heaven-hot with some pirate sh*t

E3: Rhythm Heaven Wii kills it

Have you played Rhythm Heaven? This WarioWare-esque rhythm-action series has been largely ignored in the US and Europe, which is a shame. My guess is that this is largely because the superior GBA iteration of the game never ...

E3: Rhythm Heaven trailer further proves baboons rule

Those of you who have been keeping up with the new Rhythm Heaven for Wii will recognize much of this E3 trailer. The footage shown isn't new, except for the final segment. Considering how the single new sequence has one seriously awesome baboon in it, all is forgiven. Look at him, and his equally incredible little buddy! That's enough to leave me satiated for a while to come.
