Indie game publisher TinyBuild shares a new trailer for its upcoming rhythm game, Rhythm Sprout, which also includes details on its release window, features, and modes. This game was revealed back in April for the Nintendo Switch, where players take on the role of an onion sprout that must defend their homeland from an invading emperor known as King Sugar Daddy. Much like other rhythm games, such as Muse Dash or the Taiko no Tatsujin series, players have to tap along to the beat in time with the music.
In Rhythm Sprout, players have to not only move and dodge in time with the music, but they will also be attacking enemies as they appear. With the game’s emphasis on vegetables and food-theming, there are plenty of cute and colorful visuals that enhance its premise. This includes a number of food-themed boss battles in this edible rhythm game.
This trailer reveals that this game will be released in the first quarter of 2023, and can be wishlisted on Steam. It also reveals the platforms it is aiming for, including Xbox and PlayStation alongside the previously announced Switch version. The trailer also notes that a free demo of Rhythm Sprout will be available for fans to try out right now.
The demo for Rhythm Sprout seems to be currently only on PC, with it featuring a story that will only be told in the demo. This likely will only give the player a taste of what to expect from the story in terms of its tone, characters, and more. The trailer also highlights a number of modes that can be played through the game, adding to the variety of gameplay styles and how it can mix things up for the average player. This includes a Turbo Mode, Mirror Mode, Shuffle, and a Totally Random mode, with that last one masking the input players need up until the last few moments.
All the stages that have been previously showcased in the Steam Next Fest are available in this demo, along with two brand-new stages and cutscenes. There is a total of five stages in this demo, with all of them being available to play alongside the aforementioned unique modes. Rhythm Sprout will also feature a number of remixed levels and modifiers that will add additional challenges and replayability, giving players the chance to also unlock a variety of skins for armor and weapons.
Rhythm Sprout will launch in Early 2023 for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
