Over the last few years I’ve had my eye on a charming project in tribute of one of Nintendo’s most underrated series. With some toe-tapping, cat-clapping, love-rapping jams what else could it be but Rhythm Heaven? Rhythm Heaven Reanimated has brought together a collective of artists and some of the games’ best remixes for nearly twenty minutes of animated paradise.
Songs, games and characters from Rhythm Heaven GBA, DS, Rhythm Heaven Fever, and Megamix are all here in a multitude of styles thanks to everyone involved. Plenty of references to others (as well as entirely different Nintendo games) have made their way in along with a healthy dose of original ideas in some unexpected places. Keep an eye out for a Karate Joe Smash Bros. call out and watch for when this nearly Perfect run loses out on its medal.
It’s more than just a tribute – this kind of bliss embodies the spirit of Rhythm Heaven in full. We applaud Kevin Fagaragan and the rest of the assembled talent and the dedication on display here for their Superb job and hope Nintendo can bring on a new game soon to inspire them further.
