image Starting with Space Invaders Extreme, Taito’s flagship series got funkier and since Taito has found success with music games like Groove Coaster it only makes sense to mash their strengths together. That might be what Rhythmvaders is.

No word what this is yet, but if Rhythmvaders is a music Space Invaders shmup count me in.

    This looks pretty interesting :P


    Hopefully, Konami would compete that with a Gradius rhythm shmup game.

    This is something that I like about Space Invaders, they do new things with it but still keep it within the arcade aesthetic and don’t try to “modernize” it. Heck, I think Space Invaders: Get Even was a pretty spot-on parody of that sort of mentality.

    This is something I really love about these Space Invaders spin-offs. Infinity Gene was so awesome, and I loved the auto generated levels based off your music. Groove Coaster was a full on rhythm game with the same cool style that IG had. I can’t wait to see what they do next.
