Nintendo Surprise Launches One of the Best Rhythm Games of All Time
Rhythm Heaven Megamix launches today as a digital download on the 3DS eshop. However, Mother 3 is still unavailable.
Not to belittle the excellent Rhythm Heaven, which, along with Rock Band and Elite Beat Agents, represents one of the greatest music game franchises of all time, but it's not Mother 3.
Rhythm Heaven Megamix culls together over 100 musical minigames, combing new tunes and returning favorites from previous games. The digital-only title is available today on the Nintendo 3DS eshop for $30. Which would also be a fine price for a game like Mother 3.
Nintendo eschewed a traditional E3 press conference this year to focus on live, day-long stage shows. The company also announced a new 3DS RPG called Ever Oasis during its presentation today. However, when you think about it, the best way for the developer to close out E3 really would been a with a surprise announcement and release of Mother 3, a game that turned 10 years old last April.
