Rhythm Heaven Fever (みんなのリズム天国 Minna no Rhythm Tengoku ), known as Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise in Europe, and 리듬 세상 Wii (Lideum Sesang Wii Rhythm World Wii ) in Korea, is the third game in the Rhythm Heaven Series, released for the Wii on July 21, 2011 in Japan, February 13, 2012 in North America, July 6, 2012 in Europe, September 13, 2012 in Australia and September 12, 2013 in South Korea.
The game was digitally rereleased for the Wii U's Virtual Console on July 27, 2016 in Japan, November 10, 2016 in North America, and November 24 in Europe.
Like previous titles, the game features various Rhythm Games each with their own rules, requiring the player to play in time to the rhythm in order to clear them. 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 Ⓐ, or "squeeze" Ⓐ+Ⓑ together. At the end of each game, players are Ranked on their performance, with at least an "OK" rank required to clear it and progress onto the next. Each stage of four games culminates in a Remix, which combines all the gameplay elements of the previous games in one.
Clearing levels with a Superb earns Medals which unlock extra content in the Medal Corner, including Rhythm Toys, Endless Games and Extra Games from the original Rhythm Tengoku. Levels that have been cleared with a Superb may also be randomly selected for a Perfect Campaign, in which the player can try to clear the game without missing, with the maximum of 3 retries before it disappears. Clearing these rewards Gifts such as songs and Reading Material.
New to the series (bar the arcade version of Rhythm Tengoku) is the Two-Player Menu, 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 game, with bonus points awarded based on the harmony of the players. These can sometimes result in the rank going from OK to Superb. These games come with Duo Medals which unlock Two-Player Endless Games.
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 localized versions of the game, the Endless Game Manzai was removed due to the dialogue focused nature of the game and replaced with another from Rhythm Tengoku known as Mr. Upbeat. Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise exclusively allows players to switch between English and Japanese voices.
