Rhythm Heaven Wii makes Nintendo of America look good

Nintendo of America has been getting a a lot of bad press lately. Operation Rainfall, and their efforts to convince NoA to localize Pandora's Tower, The Last Story, and Xenoblade, continue to make headlines. More aggressive fans are pledging to boycott all of Nintendo's Wii titles until the company commits to publishing those three games. Club Nintendo went from giving out free games to commemorative pins. And don't even get me started on the 3DS eShop.

So lets take a look at the bright side for a change. Nintendo of America has committed to publishing Rhythm Heaven on the Wii, and from the looks of this footage from the game's official Japanese site, things are looking good. There will be no use of motion controls (so you can expect spot on timing), the songs are as catchy as ever, the challenges are looking quirky and fun, and multi-player looks simple but effective.

NoA's willingness to show this game at E3 proves that they aren't totally risk adverse. At least, that's what I hope this proves. Though they did announce the game for Western release at E3 2011, they are yet to show anything of the game translated into English. Even the E3 demo was completely in Japanese. Let's hope that NoA doesn't pull a bait and switch like they did with Monado/Xenoblade.

More videos after the jump.
