SEGA has decided to create an original rhythm game IP for the 3DS, after the they have launched two successful different license rhythm games to the market. This original game will be called “Rhythm Phantom Thief R: Inheritance of the Emperor Napoleon” Yes, pretty long title.
The game will be a hybrid of rhythm action with adventure elements. You play as Phantom Thief R, traveling Paris with your dog Fondue, stealing treasure form historical landmarks like Notre-Dame and The Louvre.
So where does the rhythm aspect of the game come in? When you are sneaking into places to steal treasure. The game will use button timing and tilt controls. SEGA has confirmed that they are teaming up with a famous artist for the game.
The game is set to debut in a week. The art has been described as a mix between Lupin III and Professor Layton. Famitsu says the title is 50% complete. We will post scans when we get them, if you have scans leave them in the comment section or contact us.
