"Pokémon" Developer Game Freak's Next is a Musical Platformer

"Rhythm Hunter: HarmoKnight" comes to 3DS eShop on September 5

Game Freak may be best known for its sales behemoth Pokémon franchise, but that series' success kind of overshadows the developer's other skills. Thankfully we'll get the chance to be reminded of what else makes the team special with the announcement of Rhythm Hunter: HarmoKnight, a musical platformer set to hit the Japanese 3DS eShop on September 5.

 

Here's a clip from the Nintendo Direct presentation, which shows some of the intro and how the platforming gameplay affects the music:

 

 

This needs to come out over here ASAP. A demo is now available in Japan, and the rhythm action will be priced at ¥1,800 (about $23) when it drops.
