It's nice to see Game Freak go into other stuff. The game looks neat. I might buy it.

This game does look different than Rythymn Heaven. (Looks better imo. Actually)

Lol, I don't see how my "trouble" arises from the fact that I stated the "core mechanic" differentiates from "game content". And it's not that Rhythm Heaven is an inherently bad game, but as far as reaching full completion goes, its a nightmare (I do realize the overdramatization of my comments towards RH).

Holy shit, you guys are obnoxious. The DS' Rhythm Heaven was fantastic, I never had a problem with it at all. If you had problems with that game, then it's probably you, and if your experience with one game will influence your opinion of every other game in the genre, please go get your head checked out. Stodie comes off to me as a person who has trouble with rhythm games in general due to his overly-tenacious emphasis on how the "core mechanic" of the games overrules the game's content itself. Really, I'm getting tired of people who just bash perfectly awesome rhythm games because they're bad at them.

I, for one, am pretty stoked for the release of this game; looks fun.

bond007106 You're arguing that the content of the game somehow overrules the fact that the core mechanic is the same. Both games involve an input that corresponds with the game's music. One claims to be a platformer, but like you said, its a "rhythm-action game", just with a focus on controlling a character's jumps and attacks instead of random mini-games like in Rhythm Hell.

Also, visual cues were ever so present in RH, which is why I still see this game playing in the same general ballpark. But like you said, hopefully the game will be inherently easier since the concept is solely "rhythm-platforming" and not "rhythm-drumming/building-robots/disk-jockeying/arbitrary-bs/etc."

This game is not related to Rhythm Heaven. It's a completely different game, with entirely different gameplay mechanics, made by a different developer. Comparing the two is meaningless and pointless.
Different IP, different developer, same basic gameplay. So actually comparing the two in that aspect does hold merit.
It's not the same basic gameplay. Rhythm Heaven invovles you performing a certain action in time with the music; that's it. But this game is part platformer; you have to either jump or attack in time with the music, in order to avoid/defeat enemies and collect as many notes as possible. They are both rhythm action games, but everything besides that is very different. This game will be easier by its very nature, as you have visual cues as well as musical ones, and there isn't some hidden arbiter telling you whether your timing was right or not; you can tell whether it was (and how far off it was if it wasn't) by whether you hit the enemy/made the jump/collected the notes.

Not really. They are both rhythm games after all.

Looks neat, but if it's half as finicky as Rhythm Heaven was for the DS then prepare to see landfills filled with broken handhelds

I wonder what the price for this is. With Nintendo unveiling all these 3DS games, my funds are becoming incredibly limited.
