SEGA are describing Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure as a musical adventure set in Paris, with stylish animations and vibrant 3D maps and landscapes. The trailer below certainly seems to suggests that the game is bright and attractive.

The game sees you taking control of Raphael, who is described as an honourable thief that steals paintings and returns them days later. How nice of him. There’s an air of mystery to the story, as Raphael is searching for his missing father.

You’ll be taking part in rhythm challenges, in which you’ll be tapping the screen, swiping the stylus and controlling the gyro to the beat of the music. Both Single player and multiplayer can be expected.

Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure will be released on the 3DS early next year.
