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

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

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.
