Rhythm Heaven Wii is about to be released in Japan, and marketing for the title is starting to pick up. We've already gotten a look at some of the game's 50+ levels, multi-player mode, and a endless games, but these TV spots show us a few more levels in greater detail. The "taking pictures of sweaty luchadors" level seems to be a big hit with the kids, and it looks like that vaguely androgynous middle aged woman really loves making those seals wiggle.
I know a lot of you might scoff at paying full price for a game that you can likely complete in 4 or 5 hours, but to me, it's more than worth it if both the replay value and memorability are there. Just like with movies and songs, a game's "length" isn't a real way to measure value. I'd much rather own Fist Full of Dollars over Paint Your Wagon, or Jive Talkin over MacCarthur's Park. There is nothing wrong with short and sweet, as long as you're getting a quality product. I still replay (and think about) Rhythm Heaven and Rhythm Tengoku on a regular basis, not because they're long games, but because I love the gameplay and music so much. From the sounds of it, I'll feel the same with Rhythm Heaven Wii.
"Pica Pica Pica Desu Ka!' indeed.
