Think you have rhythm? Then you might be excited to hear that Beat City
is coming to the DS, courtesy of THQ. I'm skeptical because the word "minigame" is in the description, but the gameplay sounds like Elite Beat Agents
, and like any gamer I LOVE me some EBA. It's a shame Nintendo didn't continue the series outside of Japan but maybe THQ has us covered with Beat City.
THQ STARTS A RHYTHM REVOLUTION WITH THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF
BEAT CITY™ EXCLUSIVELY FOR NINTENDO DS™
Game Will Challenge Players to Keep With the Tempo
and Rediscover the Pulse of Beat City
AGOURA HILLS, Calif. – January 12, 2010 – THQ Inc. (NASDAQ: THQI) today announced that Beat City™ is currently in development exclusively for Nintendo DS™. An easy to pick-up and play game featuring 20 colorful mini-games, Beat City will be available spring 2010, and combines stylistic and fun rhythm-based games with a story of revolution and love.
In Beat City, players must find their rhythm in order to restore Beat City to the vibrant, melodious city it once was. Using the stylus, players simply tap, swipe or hold on queue to the music’s beat in order to receive a high star rating within each mini-game. While players are tapping to the beat, they can watch the city transform right before their eyes ridding the city of Dame Isolde Minor and her Cacophony Corporation, who bring nothing but monotony. The better a player is at keeping the beat the more items are unlocked in the environment.
