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 in romantic love with the game.
Other people I've talked to about the title have said it's more like an abusive relationship. Like I said in the review, just because Rhythm Heaven Fever has simple controls doesn't mean it's easy (just ask Max and Tara). One Dtoid'er has gone so far as to confess to me that Monkey Watch has kicked his ass 10 times in a row and he still can't beat it (BTW this video is for you, dawg).
If you are one of those who love the idea of playing Rhythm Heaven but are struggling with your inability to stay on beat, maybe this idea will suit you. Nintendo is giving you the chance to costar on the Rhythm Heaven Fever webpage. Submit a video of you "dancing" to the game's soundtrack, and you could be the next face that helps promote the game. That could be awesome.
As someone who's already been jammed into Rhythm Heaven Fever once in his life, I can tell you from experience that it feels pretty fantastic. I encourage you to make the leap as well.
