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

5:22 PM on 06.09.2011 // Jonathan Holmes

I'm actually about to run out of time here at E3, so I have to make this post short. There is a Wii U demo of a game called Shield Pose where you have to use the Wii U's camera, separate screen functionality, and motion controls to block arrows shot at you by an extremely polite pirate skeleton. You must do this to the beat, which is appropriate, as the music and sound effects sound as though they were taken straight from Rhythm Heaven. It wasn't my favorite Wii U game, but it was unique, and the music was rad.

OK, that's the end of my Wii U coverage for a bit. Look forward to a Skyward Sword video in a few minutes.
