Rhythm Land – New Mega Drive Game with Music by Yuzo Koshiro Announced

Sega consoles never die, and there is no further proof needed than the amount of games announced for the Mega Drive over the last few years. The latest entry to step into the ring is Rhythm Land, by Columbus Circle.  According to their website, the game will release in February 2019 as a physical release at the price of 5,980 yen. 

The first shipment will also provide a CD soundtrack with work from various artists including the famous Yuzo Koshiro. Those not familiar with his name should remember some of his classic work from Streets of Rage, Revenge of Shinobi, Actraiser, and many other classic titles.  From the available information, the cart includes four distinctive rhythm games with a total of 20 recorded songs.

Below is a trailer for the game:

Pre-orders are on Amazon Japan, though if you aren’t from there, YMMV.
