Nintendo Drops Irresistible New Beats with Rhythm Heaven Fever for Wii
Starting today, video game fans and music lovers across the United States can use the Wii™ system to keep the beat in dozens of entertaining new ways. The Rhythm Heaven™ Fever game is now available, inviting players to enjoy a fresh lineup of more than 50 unique rhythm games. Easy to pick up and play but challenging to master, each minigame tasks players to tap buttons on the Wii Remote™ controller in time to catchy musical themes while completing a variety of quirky tasks. Rhythm Heaven Fever carries a suggested retail price of $29.99 in the United States.
Rhythm Heaven Fever takes the action to the living room for big beat-keeping fun. By rhythmically pressing the A and B buttons on their controller in time with the music, players might find themselves playing golf with a monkey, swinging a samurai sword or building robots on an assembly line. No matter what the activity, the game's infectious soundtrack will keep heads bobbing and faces smiling as players test their rhythmic skills.
"If you've ever tapped your feet to the beat of your favorite song, you've already got what it takes to play Rhythm Heaven Fever," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "What makes the experience really unique is the wild mix of in-game activities coupled with the catchy music that appeals to a wide variety of players."
As they improve their beat-keeping acumen, players earn medals that can be used to unlock a variety of bonus games and special sections to keep the groove going on and on. Unlockable content also includes two-player games that friends and family members can enjoy together. (Multiplayer modes require additional controllers, which are sold separately.)
Remember that Wii features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/wii.
