Rhythm Tengoku

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 cont...
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 ...
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.
A couple of days ago, we got the word that a new Kirby game is coming to the Wii. In typical Nintendo style, this announcement was made with little fanfare, with nothing but a few details and a tiny, thirty second video to m...
We already showed you Nintendo's 3DS teaser compilation video from tonight's big Nintendo press conference, but there's more where that came from. Though the 3DS is getting all the love and attention that newborns usually re...
All this 3DS news is great and all, and I'm totally excited about Mega Man Legends 3D and the new Resident Evil stuff, but on my end, the biggest reveal from tonight's Nintendo Conference was actually related to Nintendo's ot...
You could easily accuse this week's HAWP of prioritizing aural pleasure over humor. We're pretty much okay with that, considering the aural pleasure in question comes from the mind of one Danny Baranowsky -- if you've ever pl...
Yesterday, Matt told us about the Rhythm Heaven events going on this weekend all around the country. I headed to the one at the Burlington Mall, not expecting it to be anything worth reporting on. I didn't even bring my camer...
If you've already mastered Rhythm Heaven on the Nintendo DS, Nintendo wants to put your real skills to this test this week in New York City. This Thursday, April 9, Nintendo will be hosting a Rhythm Heaven event at the S...
I understand the practice of using celebs to advertise gaming -- after all, it worked well for Nintendo when they featured Yuri Ebihara in a DS commercial. Still, there's something ultimately laughable to me about the fact th...
At GDC 2007, I met Niero for the first time, and it was literally less than a few hours before he was waving his DS Lite and showing me a strange little game I had never seen before. "Rhythm Tengoku", he said. "...
You may recollect I was a bit of a sad panda over the supposed November release date for Rhythm Heaven DS, the English-language version of Rhythm Tengoku Gold (better known as the best rhythm game on the DS EVER). Thanks to a...
Let it be known that, in addition to amassing more video games than I will ever play through again in my lifetime, I also have more comic books than I could ever read.  This is simply one of the trappings and joys of bei...
If you read the import review that Dale North and I wrote about Rhythm Tengoku Gold, you may have imported it already if it's your cup of tea, or you may have decided to wait for the English version, which we knew was coming ...
 Some people mistake what I mean when I say something is deliciously nerdy in a rapturous tone of voice. After all, nerdy has not always been a positive word -- but let me assure you, I mean it in the best way. To get al...
You should be playing Rhythm Tengoku Gold (and yes, I know it's not out here in its North American incarnation, what I mean is you should have imported it and played the f*ck out of it already), and if you are, you know that ...
