Dance Dance Revolayton: SEGA Announces Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure

If you ever played any of the Professor Layton series and thought the one thing missing in it would be rhythm-based minigames, then SEGA has you set with Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure, set to hit the 3DS in early 2012.

From the sounds of it, Rhythm Thief definitely looks Layton-esque, with the exception being that the puzzles are replaced by rhythm challenges. The plot has you playing as a famous thief named Raphael, as you scour the streets of Paris in search for a priceless artifact that can unlock the mystery behind your father’s disappearance.

Honestly, it sounds promising, and I’ve always been a sucker for rhythm games, so I’m cautiously optimistic. Check the jump for a plethora of screenshots.
