Ever wonder why Wario Ware: Smooth Moves wasn't a crazy awesome as the other games in the series? It might be because Nintendo R&D1, creators of all the other Wario Ware games, took a break from that game to instead create Rhythm Tengoku (available on GBA and in Japanese arcades). Nintendo R&D1 is also the sole developer of the sequel to Rhythm Tengoku, the brilliantly off-beat Rhythm Heaven, coming to Japanese and US dual screens later this year.
Video can't do Rhythm Heaven justice. Like Rock Band or Guitar Hero, one must really play it (and hear it) to understand it. While the above commercials wont help you understand how great Rhythm Heaven is to play, they will at least give you a taste for how weird it is. The brunette fella with crazy suit is just the beginning.
