“Make way for a new wave of Rhythm Action and Musical Games from Konami!
Konami, the original creators and innovators of rhythm action games, bring back much loved classics with updated appeal and exciting new features!
Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has announced a new wave of rhythm action and musical games, that will be shown at this year’s gamescom in Cologne, Germany, giving a taste of things to come for fans of Japanese pop culture and all things Bemani.
pop’n rhythm, the classic arcade game which has a long history in Japanese Arcades and where players are challenged to hit button ‘poppers’ to the beat, will be playable on Nintendo Wii in Cologne. The new version will give fans a fantastic opportunity to see this crazy and addictive game, transferred onto the Wii and utilising the console’s unique control system.
DanceDanceRevolution is also back, and bigger and stronger than ever before! Making its debut on the PLAYSTATION®3 in Spring 2010 and with a new iteration for Xbox 360, the games enjoy a massive list of licensed tracks, impressive graphics with customisable characters and a brand new ‘Octo-Move Mode’. Dancers can now use all eight directional arrows on the dance mat, which means greater freedom of movement – just like real dancing! Similarly, there are even more ways to burn calories whilst having fun! DanceDanceRevolution Producer Naoki Maeda will be present at gamescom, too, and will present the publisher’s line-up of dancing games.
Finally, Karaoke Revolution is heading to Europe. Karaoke has never looked so good, with in depth character creation, stunning stages where users can strut their stuff and sing their heart out to a multitude of licensed tracks. Karaoke Revolution is coming to PLAYSTATION 3 and Wii in November 2009, being compatible with most available microphones.”
