Japanese Exclusive Game Boy Advance Release 'Rhythm Tengoku' Gets A Fan Translation Patch

Japanese-Exclusive-Game-Boy-Advance-Release-Rhythm-Tengoku-Gets-A-Fan-Translation-PatchEnjoyed Rhythm Paradise on the Nintendo DS? Well it's time to head back to its roots on the Game Boy Advance. ROM hackers have taken the first game from the series, Rhythm Tengoku, which was never released outside of Japan and translated the in game dialogue. Time to get your beat on.

Rhythm Tengoku was Nintendo's last effort and swan song on the Nintendo Game Boy Advance in 2006, before moving their focus to the Nintendo DS. The music based video game features similar gameplay to that of WarioWare, only replacing the quick reflex action with beat inspired fun. Sounds simple, but addictively tough.

Sadly Nintendo never brought Rhythm Tengoku to European or American shores. English speaking audiences had to wait till 2009 to experience the unusual style of gameplay, with the release of Rhythm Tengoku's sequel - Rhythm Heaven / Rhythm Paradise.

As of today though, those who don't mind emulation or have a Game Boy Advance flash cartridge to hand can indulge in a fan translated version of Rhythm Tengoku. A downloadable patch has now been made available which translates the first eighteen mini-games, with the team behind the translation hoping to continue their work until the entire game is done.

As usual, to enjoy this fan translation patch you will need to have an original Rhythm Tengoku Game Boy Advance ROM file to which you can apply this patch to. Full instructions on how to patch this ROM can be found within the download, or you can refer to this handy ROM patching guide on YouTube.
