Pokemon Devs Launching Rhythm Hunter: Harmo Knight in Japan Next Week

Posted by at 3:03 pm on August 29, 2012

Pokémon developer Game Freak is launching a new game, Rhythm Hunter: Harmo Knight, on the Japanese 3DS eShop next Wednesday. The news came from this morning’s Nintendo Direct broadcast, hosted by Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata.

Harmo Knight is a rhythm action game featuring 2D side-scrolling levels and, yup, some Pokémon music. The levels are set to a variety of tunes, and players have to run, jump, and attack in time with the music. The play looks similar to that of rhythm-based platformer Bit.Trip Runner.

No word on any international release, of course, but with the Pokémon tie-in it seems likely. Andriasang notes Nintendo will release an Iwata Asks for the game later today.
