Check out GameFreak’s upcoming platformer rhythm hybrid.
Some people may look at GameFreak and wonder how a single developer can do nothing but create Pokemon games for its entire existence (which wouldn’t be a big deal if they all weren’t the same in their structure).
However, GameFreak does have something else up its sleeve: HarmoKnight, a platformer where you both attain killer rhythm and measured platforming success that is confirmed to release on March 28th.
The whole point of the game is to follow the usual platforming tropes but making music in the meanwhile. Think of it as the atypical rhythm game but without the on-screen prompts. You’ll be collecting musical notes, which adds to the whole musical arrangement part of the rhythm game, while also beating back enemies to continue onward.
Simple but quite effective, HarmoKnight will be arriving as a digital download on the 3DS eShop. If you want to test the game first, then you can look for a demo online roughly a week after the official game release according to Nintendo.
