SEGA's 3DS Rhythm Thief Ransacks UK, NA

By Mike Mason 30.08.2011 1


Shortly after announcing it for Japan, SEGA have revealed that their music title Rhythm Thief & The Emperor's Treasure will be ransacking its way across European and North American shores in early 2012. Time to buff up those dancing shoes!

The Michael Jackson-aping Raphael, an infamous thief who likes nothing more than to nick off with masterpiece artworks before returning them days later, will spin around the streets of Paris in his hunt for the Wristlet of Tiamat - and his missing father. Having a bit of a spark in his step, this naturally means more than a few musical interludes, controlled through touch-screen taps and swipes, plus a little gentle gyroscopic jiving.

"Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure blends rhythm, puzzles and a compelling story set in one of the world’s most exciting cities in a way that has never been seen before. This unique blend makes creative use of the Nintendo 3DS’ technology, offering an engaging, challenging and most importantly fun experience throughout." - Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing, SEGA Europe & SEGA of America.

Rhythm Thief & The Emperor's Treasure will bring an all-singing, all-dancing single player campaign, multiplayer and StreetPass modes to the dance floor. For now, you can catch a glimpse of the rhythmic robber in our media album and in the teaser trailer below.

That's amazing - the dance parts look exactly the same as MJ: The Experience on DS! Smilie
