Rhythm Thief – New Trailer

This new trailer highlights some of the wacky rhythm based mini games you’ll be playing in Rhythm Thief. These include striking poses to hide from security guards, playing football in the streets of London and biting arses- as a dog.

Rhythm Heaven is exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS and is described as a blend of Professor Layton art and storytelling with the game play of Elite Beat Agents, sounds brilliant!

SEGA developing an original rhythm game for 3DS

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.
