If rhythm is a dancer, Nintendo and SEGA’s new collaborative effort is going to be positively “pirouette à la seconde” across Europe. After all, once the music captures your soul, you’re stuffed. Or, at least, that’s what the pair of esteemed developers are hoping for it.

Back in August SEGA announced that Rhythm Thief and the Emperor’s Treasure would be released in Europe at some point this year, what they didn’t advise was that they were going to be partnering with Nintendo to release it.

They also didn’t confirm the release date, but it’s now confirmed for general release on the Nintendo 3DS as the 5 April 2012 in the UK.

In Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure we meet Raphael, a young Parisian boy who leads a secret double life. He seems just like any other boy, living in the French capital with his trusty dog Fondue. But he assumes the new persona of a virtuous thief, breaking into some of Paris’s most famous museums to steal priceless works of art; only to return them a couple of days later. On his adventure he meets Marie, a violinist with a mysterious past, and clashes with Vergier, the superintendent at the Paris constabulary; all the while hoping to find his missing father.
