Rhythm Heaven enemy surfaces in Smash Bros. 4

Buried under all the other E3 news this weekend as the eagle-eyed observation that one of the Sneaky Spirits from the original Rhythm Tengoku/Heaven on GBA is an enemy in the Smash Run mode of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS....

Rhythm Heaven music producer diagnosed with Laryngeal cancer

The Rhythm Heaven series hasn't become a household name outside of Japan (yet), but in its native country, the games sell in the millions. That success is due in no small part to the work of Tsunku, the singer/songwriter/prod...

It's a My Little Rhythm PaRappa Pony Heaven freak out

Rhythm Heaven Fever is my favorite game of 2012. I love Fez and Retro City Rampage and Fatal Frame 2 and many, many other games that were released this year, but none of them have made a permanent change to my dail...

Rhythm Heaven comes to Europe in English and Japanese

One the only things that kept Rhythm Heaven Fever from getting a perfect score was the game's lack of language options. Unlike the cartridge-based Rhythm Heaven on the DS, there were no space constraints on the Wii...

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...

There were a lot of Dtoid'ers at this party. You may spot many familiar faces in this video (maybe even your own), but that's not why I'm saying that everyone is beautiful at the Rhythm Heaven Fever launch party. I'm saying it because it's true. This was a beautiful event. From little kids to attractive ladies to sexy, bronzed silver foxes, this event brought out the best of the the entire human race. Like I said in the review, Rhythm Heaven Fever is a game that really can appeal to everybody, and make anyone feel happy. i think this party proved that sentiment to be true (though I'm sure the free food, booze, and t-shirts didn't hurt).

There was plenty to see at the event, including two fantastic Rhythm Heaven Fever paintings by Iam8bit artists Yoskay Yamamoto and Mari Inuka, hand crafted stuffed animals and sculptures of Rhythm Heaven Fever characters, a Kinect-style Rhythm Heaven Fever dance contest, huge muscles, great music, and much more. It was a unforgettable time, as you'll see for yourself in the video.

This is the first video I've done for Dtoid with a whole new team. I think they did a pretty great job. Thanks again to Lindsay and Tobbii for helping me put this one together.

Review: Rhythm Heaven Fever photo
Review: Rhythm Heaven Fever
by Jonathan Holmes

What does it take for a game to be universally enjoyable? That's the question most game developers would love to be able to answer, but it's easier said than done. My guess is that it comes down to exploiting the medium for what it does best -- utilizing multi-sensory connections to break down the barriers between the "real" world and the "game" world. If you look at the most popular game franchises in history -- Call of Duty, Wii Sports, Angry Birds, Guitar Hero, etc. -- you'll see that each one broke down those barriers in ways that deeply resonated with people on a primal level.

Will Rhythm Heaven Fever resonate with the populace at large in that way? I think it's possible. It definitely utilizes multi-sensory stimuli in ways that instantly make the player feel connected to the game world. It also comes packed with a kind of "Muppet cool" that historically appeals to kids, teenagers, adults, and just about everyone in between. It's way too strange and unconventional to ever come off as insincere or uninspired, and it's way too focused on blasting your brain with pure glee to be seen as anything but a whimsical delight.

Rhythm Heaven Fever special edition unboxing

Did you know that Rhythm Heaven Fever was getting a special edition? Neither did I. Then I got this box in the mail this morning. I'm pretty sure that this special edition won't be sold in stores, but if Nintendo decides to change its mind on that, they're sure to make a killing when the game hits stores on February 13th. Check out the video and you'll understand what I mean.

We've all had a song -- sometimes one we don't even like -- stuck on repeat as we go through our daily routines. It can be agonizing at times, but there is a reason even the worst song becomes infused in the recesses of our subconscious: the music is catchy.

Wubudubudubudubudub! This is the infectious beat that has been echoing inside the depths of my brain ever since I had the chance to go hands-on with Nintendo's Rhythm Heaven Fever. No matter how hard I try, I can't shake this sound. It's a true testament to the charming music minigame collection's addictive rhythmic gameplay and unforgettable jams.

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...
