Rhythm Tengoku (from the makers of Made in Wario)

Translates as "Rhythm Heaven".
GBA / 3800 yen / 3 August.

This game was previewed in Famitsu a couple of weeks ago, but apparently word never got out that it's made by the Made in Wario team, as noone seems to be talking about it.

It's full of mini-games based on rhythm. The games generally last 2-3 minutes each and while the characters from Made in Wario are gone, there seems to be some new cute stuff in place of them. Difficulty increases through precision required, rather than increase in tempo, and it gets pretty bloody strict by the sounds of it.

Here's the Famitsu clip neo2046 scanned a couple of weeks ago:

Rhythm-based Made in Wario-style minigames? Sounds very promising. :) Thanks for the tip! I'll have to keep an eye-out for this one.

I heard about this game a few weeks back, but I couldn't find any info on it then. It sounds like a great game to be honest, I've always been a big fan of rythm games and the visuals look alot like the Made in Wario series, which is a good thing.

Count me in.

Are you sure members of the Wario Ware team are involved? It may just be Sakamoto and Goro Abe of Nintendo since there seem to be some odd copyrights on that page.
The Wario Ware team made the game. J.P. Room is involved on the music side of things.

Sounds promising but it won't come here right? :(
It should be import-friendly, at least. Looks great!

Is that graph what I think it is, a report on player precision? Don't tell me this is Rhythm Training...

NOA apparently hates the GBA now, so I wouldn't expect this to come out in North America :(

There's nothing to do with EAD or IntSys. It's a ParityBite/J.P.Room project distributed by Nintendo.
The ParityBit reference is for Calccio Bit, which was printed on the same page of Famitsu that week. I have heard from numerous sources that the team is the same that made Made in Wario. As I said before, J.P.Room is handling the music - you know they have nothing to do with games, right?

This issue of Nintendo Dream has a preview or something for this game. Does anyone know if it says anything new that's not in the Famitsu article?

Here is the Famitsu.com preview page for the game. It's just the same screens as the scan though.

I have that issue and I seem to remember there was something new about it. I'll dig it out and have a look when I get home.

Sorry for not scanning last month's Nintendo Dream, but here's the latest issue with some new Rhythm Tengoku screens:



There's a little bit about it on the readers' letters page too, confirming the developer (Made in Wario team) and also saying that the characters are designed by the same illustrator, Kou Takeuchi.

There's a teeny bit mentioned about gameplay... you follow a rhythm and the events onscreen are designed to distract you from that rhythm. The further you continue, the more distracting the onscreen action gets. It sounds pretty cool :)

Also, there's boxart on amazon now:

Waiting for the US announcement hopefully. I love the WarioWare games.

I've just went ahead and pre-ordered it. It's from the dudes and gals that made Wario Ware, that should convince anyone.
