Rhythm Thief & The Emperor’s Treasure Places Second in Media Create, Scores Well in Famitsu

I have become increasingly excited for SEGA’s upcoming 3DS rhythm game. Produced by Shun Nakamura, the same man who directed Samba De Amigo, the game features homages to both Samba de Amigo and Space Channel 5, and looks like a lot of fun going by all the videos we’ve seen. Of course, we won’t know anything about the game’s quality until we get to play it, but going by Famitsu’s review scores it may very well have the quality to match the games it homages.

Rhythm Thief and The Emperor’s Treasure (3DS) – 8/8/8/8

The game also sold decently in it’s debut week, placing second behind Mario Kart 7:

    Not bad numbers for a new IP in Japan, and a 3rd party 3DS game of all things.

    I will wait to see if this game has long legs, but for now, i cant see 31.000 as good sales.
