I’m sure you might be wondering, “what in the name of the seven lords is this game?” like I was, because once again, as I was browsing today’s Japanese press releases, I found this particular one that talked about TIMINGooo!, which is an action rhythm game made by MAGES. Y’know, MAGES! The ones who developed STEINS;GATE, and the now upcoming Anonymous;Code. Yep, those people.
TIMINGooo! was initially released for the Nintendo Switch on November 11, 2021, and now, it has received a free mobile release, which you can play in both Japanese and English. But the best part is that this odd rhythm game contains cameos from both Upa and Gero Froggy, iconic characters from the Steins;Gate and Chaos;Head entries in the Science Adventure franchise. In fact, the music for this game is even composed by Takeshi Abo, the composer of both titles.
I don’t know about you, but many of those minigames remind me a lot of Rhythm Heaven, especially with the varied styles and the overall quirkiness. I do recommend giving the game a try if you’re interested since it’s free-to-play on mobile devices and relatively cheap (at around US$12) on the Nintendo eShop.
Chaos;Head Noah / Chaos;Child Double Pack is releasing for Nintendo Switch in the West on October 7, 2022.
Chaos;Head Noah / Chaos;Child Double Pack is a physical release of the collection that includes both games, a Steelbook, and the lingerie DLC. Regarding this, the official website states that the fictitious waifu, Seira Orgel, will not adorn her lingerie costume DLC for the North American and European releases.
Chaos:Head Noah can be seen as the director’s cut version of the original Chaos;Head which was a PC-only release in Japan. Noah added character routes and released for several consoles in Japan. Unfortunately, no edition of Chaos;Head has ever received an official localization.
Chaos;Child is a visual novel taking place 6 years after Chaos;Head Noah, focusing on a new group of protagonists. This title did receive an official English localization from publisher PQube on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and by publisher Spike Chunsoft on PC via Steam.
