Rhythm Thief pulled from the App Store over bugs after one day

After being released to the App Store only yesterday, Sega has since pulled its iOS release Rhythm Thief & the Paris Caper over bug issues.

"An unexpected problem has been discovered in the version of Rhythm Thief that was available yesterday on the Apple App Store, so we have removed it temporarily from the store as we work on a fix," reads an official statement sent to Polygon. "Our development team is hard at work to update the game and it will be back online very soon. Anyone who has purchased the game already will be able to play it as soon as it is back. We will keep you updated and we thank you in advance for your continued patience."

The game is an expanded mobile version of the rhythm adventure game Rhythym Thief & The Emperor's treasure, which first hit Nintendo 3DS. For $9.99, the universal app contained 50 missions, 20 songs, limited-time missions and side-missions for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

Sega's vice President Chris Olson said in a previously released statement that the game fit with the company's "mission to bring diverse, high quality titles to the mobile game space."

As of now, no new release date has been announced.
