Nintendo’s Beat the Beat and Freakyforms arrive next week




From out of nowhere, a new Wii game and Nintendo 3DS game emerge!

Nintendo Australia has just announced that both Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise for Wii and Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive! for Nintendo 3DS will be available in Australia dand New Zealand from 13 September

The Beat the Beat franchise expands with Rhythm Paradise, marking the first appearance of the brand on Nintendo Wii. Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise features "50 brand new rhythm games... [and] a colourful world of eccentric characters and funny situations that Rhythm Heaven fans have come to know and love," said Nintendo.

"From playing golf with mandrill to controlling a flowerpot-punching karate man, everything has to be done in time to the beat to win. Try not to let the craziness occurring on screen distract you from the music because it is keeping the rhythm that counts," continued Nintendo. Gamers will also be able to switch between Japanese and English soundtracks, covering many differing musical styles.

Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive! will be available on Nintendo 3DS as a retail game or digital download from the Nintendo eShop. Said Nintendo,Freakyforms is an "expanded version of the Nintendo 3DS Download Software title," and "is packed full of user-generated content and contains a wide range of new features for you to enjoy."

With Freakyforms, gamers can "bring [their] own creatures to life, plucking each designed element from the depths of your mind to create something truly unique. Known as formees, your customised creatures are created on a drawing board featuring a large palette of shapes, body parts and colours that can be put together and tweaked to transform them into pretty much anything," said Nintendo.

"For the first time, you can now also showcase your formees with other Nintendo 3DS users in multiplayer mode, in addition to sharing them over StreetPass or via QR Codes. It also comes with the option of utilising Download Play, so if you wish to play with a friend who doesn't own the game then they will be able to join in with the creative fun," Nintendo concluded.
