Rhythm Heaven Fever (Japanese: みんなのリズム天国 Minna no Rhythm Tengoku in Japan, Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise in Europe, or 리듬 세상 Wii Rhythm World Wii in Korea), is a visual music game developed by Nintendo and TNX for the Wii. It is the second (third in Japan) game in the Rhythm Heaven series, following Rhythm Tengoku for the Game Boy Advance and Rhythm Heaven for the Nintendo DS.
The game was released in Japan on July 21, 2011, in North America on February 13, 2012, in Europe on July 6, 2012, in Australia on September 13, 2012, and in South Korea on September 12, 2013.
This game was digitally rereleased for the Wii U on July 27, 2016, about 5 years after the release in Japan, it was rereleased in North America on November 10, 2016, and it rereleased in Europe on November 24. An international digital rerelease in Australia and South Korea is currently unknown.
Like previous titles, the game features various levels with their own set of rules, requiring the player to play in time to the rhythm in order to clear them. These levels range from stabbing peas with a fork, to attacking evil spirits with a sword and playing badminton in midair. Unlike the previous game, Rhythm Heaven, which utilized the features of the Nintendo DS, Rhythm Heaven Fever for the Wii is limited to button controls. The game is played with the Wii Remote held vertically, with players required to either tap the A button, or squeeze the A and B buttons together. At the end of each level, players are ranked on their performance, with at least an 'OK' rank required to clear the level and progress onto the next. Each set of levels culminates in a Remix stage, which combines all the gameplay elements of the previous levels in one stage.
Clearing levels with a Superb/High Level rating earns medals which unlock extra content, including Rhythm Toys, Endless Minigames and levels from the original Rhythm Tengoku. Levels that have been cleared with a Superb rating may also be randomly selected for a Perfect attempt, in which the player can try to clear the level without making any mistakes with the maximum of 3 retries before the perfect challenge disappears. Clearing these unlock bonus items such as songs, lyrics and some rare Props.
New to the series (bar the arcade version of Rhythm Tengoku) is a multiplayer mode, in which two players can play simultaneously. Levels played in multiplayer require players to earn enough points in total to reach the desired rank and clear each stage, with bonus points awarded based on the harmony of the players. These can sometimes result in the rank going from an 'OK' to a 'Superb'. These levels come with their own set of medals which can unlock multiplayer minigames. There are Props that every character in the game can wear. They are earned by playing Rhythm Games, getting medals and clearing the Perfect attempt.
Development and Localization
Producer Yoshio Sakamoto and Nintendo SPD Group No.1 were responsible for the programming, graphic design, and some of the music in the game. Collaborator and musician Tsunku and his music studio TNX created several of the performed vocal songs found throughout the game. In the English versions of the game, an endless minigame based on manzai routines was removed due to the dialogue focused nature of the game and replaced with another minigame from Rhythm Tengoku known as Mr. Upbeat.  The European and Australian version of the game allows players to switch between English and Japanese versions of the soundtrack.
