Nintendo will release a new Rhythm Heaven game for Nintendo 3DS in Japan this year, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata announced during today's Japanese Nintendo Direct.

Rhythm Heaven for 3DS will include more than 100 timing-based musical minigames, 70 of which are pulled from previous entries in the series. Iwata showed a selection of minigames adapted from the Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS and Wii Rhythm Heaven games and promised 30 new minigames. New games include robot ballroom dancing and a conversation between an alien jellyfish and an astronaut.

The 3DS version of Rhythm Heaven is slated for release this summer in Japan. A North American release was not announced during this morning's Nintendo Direct.
