Pokémon developer, Game Freak, are working on a downloadable Nintendo eShop game for the 3DS. Rhythm Hunter: Harmo Knight is a rhythm-platformer of sorts, where your jumping and attacks are in tune with the background music. You can watch a trailer for the game below, courtesy of YouTube user, Nintendaan:



Rhythm Hunter: Harmo Knight will be released for the Nintendo eShop in Japan on September 5th, and will see a free downloadable demo as well.

    Loving what I see/hear (and the homage to Pokemon) so far :)

    Now for the western Nintendo Direct that announces its US release date!

  • Anna Scruton

    Wow! Its really cute <3

  • rinalicat

    …so cute..!! I NEED IT.

  • Niermyico

    This is so awesome! :D

  • Zonic505

    I really wish Game Freak would make more games outside of Pokemon. It shows they can come up with some cool stuff, such as this, Pulseman, and Drill Dozer. Hoping this’ll come to the US eShop.

  • Wow this is retarded. The game’s practically only riding the coattails of Pokemon’s popularity. People are going to think that this is going to be good just because it has Pokemon music and being developed by Pokemon developer.

    I don’t mean this though, just testing whether hateful comment on topic other than DmC is going to get me modded. Game looks beautiful yeah.

    • Anon-non

      I’m more offended by your use of ‘retarded’. My brother has Down syndrome.

    • SantiagodelosSantos

      I don’t even like pokemon that much and i thought this looks pretty cool. 

  • Krisi92

    It looks really great! I’m certain that I’m going to download it if it comes out here in Europe.

  • keithmaxx

    This seems promising; I wonder whether we’ll see an eventual stateside release for this game.

    Also, it looks like we’re seeing a lot of rhythm games lately, interesting enough. I’m glad to see this genre booming lately and hope to see more in the works.

  • This looks really amazing. I love it when storied developers occasionally get to go nuts with some random new game, and more eShop goodness is very welcome. Also, love the art direction.

  • komiko12

    Hehe, even I would get somewhat bored if all the work I do is Pokemon.
    I think the short break from Pokemon is good for them.

  • XypherCode

    Looks great. What more for a real Pokemon game xD

  • Sammy Garner

    This looks entertaining. LOVE the rhythm games.

  • puchinri

    That looks incredibly cute and fun. I really hope we see it in the other regions too~.
