The game that got the beat going on Nintendo DS is back with a brand-new, equally addictive version for Wii. Instead of using the DS stylus to tap and flick the screen, players keep in time with the music with a simple push of the A button or the A and B buttons together. With more than 50 new mini-games to master, Rhythm Heaven Fever ($29.99) brings the same wackiness of the DS game to the Wii. Who knew that stabbing beans with a fork and slicing stuff with a samurai sword could be so musical?

Also like the DS version, the more you play, the more content you unlock—including bonus features and multiplayer mode. In multiplayer mode, you can find out if you and your friends are truly marching to the beat of the same drum. Up to two people can play at a time with 10 mini-games from which to choose. You’ll both be grooving to the beat in no time.
