Incoming – July’s Rhythm


Welcome back to our feature where we aim to highlight the new releases that that our readers might be interested in!

With the Olympics in full-swing, there’s not much to recommend on retail shelves other than the bizarrely wonderful Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise (the belated “Rhythm Heaven Fever”) on the Nintendo Wii. It is a good month for 3DS owners, though, as both Theatrhythm Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance arrive just in time for the release of the king-sized 3DS XL on the 28th of July. As exciting as a refreshed handheld is, I’m also looking forward to the enhanced Xbox Live Arcade port of Spelunky, the very same “roguelike platformer” I encouraged everyone to try on the PC three years ago. With added mechanics and all-new multiplayer modes, it should be interesting to see how it compares to its freeware cousin!
