Rhythm Heaven series composer Tsunku expressed on Twitter that he hopes that a new game can be made for the Nintendo Switch, in response to a fan who wished that a new game could be released so that they could play it during the quarantine period.
In his Twitter message, Tsunku stated that he also wants a new game to come out on Nintendo Switch and for fans to be more vocal to Nintendo on the topic. He believes that the game would be great for the system as it’s not just a game you can enjoy alone, but also one you can play together with family and friends.
Tsunku has been a composer for the Rhythm Heaven series since the first unlocalized game on Game Boy Advance and has been its main composer since then. However, he was out of commission for a few years after Rhythm Heaven Fever, due to a battle against cancer. As part of his treatment, he had his vocal cords removed.
That said, he returned to provide new tracks to go with some rhythm minigames added to the compilation release Rhythm Heaven Megamix on the Nintendo 3DS. Sadly, since Rhythm Heaven Megamix (released in 2015 in Japan and 2016 in the West), the series has been dormant for around nearly five years now.
Rhythm Heaven Megamix is available on the Nintendo 3DS.
