Sega Cuts A Rug With Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure
Music based adventure grooves its way to 3DS early 2012.
If you prefer adventure games that move to a beat, Sega's recently announced Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure should pique your interest.
The upcoming 3DS title, slated to arrive in 2012, casts you as Raphael, an honorable thief that steals famous works of art and then, in a strange twist, returns them days later.
Along the way, you must help the skilled burglar find the Wristlet of Tiamat to solve the mystery behind his father's disappearance. This means exploring Paris (Sega's version of it, anyway) and completing various rhythm based challenges that make use of the system's touch screen, gyroscope and glasses free 3D.
In addition, the game features a multiplayer component, along with StreetPass support, though Sega won't go into specifics.
"Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure blends rhythm, puzzles and a compelling story set in one of the world's most exciting cities in a way that has never been seen before," says Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA Europe and SEGA of America. "This unique blend makes creative use of the Nintendo 3DS' technology, offering an engaging, challenging and most importantly fun experience throughout."
Not sure what to make of this one, but it's early. As always, we'll post more info in the months ahead.
