SEGA have recently announced the introduction of a new title, exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS. Rhythm and Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure will be set in the romantic and historic city of Paris, added with a mysterious musical adventure in a high tempo environment.

Enter the secret life of Raphael, infamous among Parisians as an honourable thief for stealing famous works of art only to return it days later. Dive into Raphael’s world and help him find the Wristlet of Tiamat to unmask the mystery behind his father’s disappearance. Whilst unravelling the truth players will encounter an assortment of different rhythm challenges to master. Tap the screen, swipe the Nintendo 3DS stylus and control the gyro to the beat of the music to manoeuvre Raphael through the unique streets of Paris, brought to life by stylish animations and vibrant 3D maps and landscapes.

Currently there’s no confirmed release date but early 2012 is being batted around by SEGA UK.
