GameZone writes: "In a world where unique games seem to have vanished, LocoRoco proved that there are still new ideas being developed. This surprising, unusually-controlled adventure game was an entirely different take on a genre that's nearly 30 years old. Tsutomu Kouno, creator of the LocoRoco franchise, is the one who made it happen.
"In the previous version of LocoRoco, players could only observe the chorus segments," Tsutomu Kouno says of the new rhythmic challenges in LocoRoco 2. "We figured adding some rhythm aspect to this would help boost the gameplay. Players can, of course, still proceed, even if they decide not to play along."
