Nintendo makes great rhythm video games in the form of Rhythm Heaven—simple, but smartly designed arcade-style games that are incredibly addictive and rich. The company is bringing one of those to the Wii and it too looks fantastic.

Along with the new Kirby game for Wii, Nintendo showed off its latest Rhythm Heaven at an investor meeting yesterday. Unlike the most recent Rhythm Heaven game for the Nintendo DS, which is all touchscreen taps, this one looks like it might be focused on swipes, swings and stabs with a Wii Remote.


While the 2011 release list for the Wii is looking a little light—Zelda, Mario Sports Mix, Kirby and a few role-playing games—more Rhythm Heaven is a welcome addition to the line-up.
