It looks really cool, I love the themes and the bosses remind me of Space Channel 5.

I really wish the art style they use on cutscenes and the world map was used on the actual gameplay segments as well.

Watch the clips on the official site, you can hear the music a lot more clearly. It's pretty awesome.

I can't believe I died on stage 5.

This demo went from easy tutorial to tons of enemies and jumps.

Amazing. One of my dream game-concepts. I don't care what it will cost, it's a day 1 download.

I'm quite jealous of Japanese 3DS owners now. :( As I said elsewhere, my absolute favorite thing about Game Freak is their music, and here they are making a rhythm game, my favorite game genre.

It's like a dream come true. :p


Also, if Somnid wants, he can copy/paste some or all of the contents in my OP to yours, for instance, the screenshots. That way, we won't have two threads. lol

This game looks like it's exactly what I was hoping/expecting Sound Shapes to be.

Oh sorry... I'm expecting it to launch overseas around December. It took about that long to bring Pushmo/Pullblox to US/EU.

jp release 7 months away, us/eu release: unknown.

Anyone have opinions on why they enjoy learning about things so far in advance and having to wait so long for it? I personally dislike learning about releases and having to wait for it.

Lol, this thread is old. Game came out September 2012. Good fun, still stuck on (what I assume is) the last level though.
