3DS eShop Spotlight – Rhythm Sky Megamix

Who made it?

Nintendo was behind this, which made the digital-only NA release even more surprising.

What is the premise?

You push and press buttons to the beat of a series of funky songs – it’s a rhythm game, what were you expecting? Tsunku takes over composing responsibilities again here, and then the tracks shine in style.

There’s even a (loose) story in Megamix that’s all about taking a trip to Heaven World. We’ll admit it’s not a particularly impressive plot, but it’s enough to put hours of rhythm gameplay on hold, so we really can’t complain.

Why should I play it?

As the name suggests, Rhythm Heaven Megamix is ​​something of the “best” mixtape of the franchise, but that doesn’t mean the game doesn’t bring something new to the table.

The series has never had as much success globally as it did in Japan, so this entry serves as a nice summary of everything that makes it click. The writing is comically deft in its weirdness, the visual style pops with a delightful vivacity and the songs are enough to make even the most rhythmically challenged of us click in no time.

Like the best rhythm games out there, this is a title that’s easy to understand but hard to master. We found ourselves returning to the same tracks over and over again to put together bigger and better combos, thus easily occupying hours of playtime.

While physical copies were available in Europe, it would be a shame to see a huge audience miss out on the digital-only version of this release.

What is its price?

$29.99 / £24.99 / €2,999. A bit pricey for a rhythm game? Maybe, but any fan of the series will tell you it’s worth it and might even try to bite you off with a sting to get the sting out. Developed in-house at Nintendo and with hours of gameplay at your disposal, it’s a glorious showcase for the series that deserves to be picked up while you can. There is also a demo that you can try out first!
