HarmoKnight (Japanese: リズムハンター ハーモナイト Rhythm Hunter: HarmoKnight) is a rhythm platform game released for the 3DS that is exclusive to the Nintendo eShop. The game was released in Japan on September 5, 2012 and in North America, Europe and Australia on March 28, 2013. The game was directed by James Turner of Game Freak. The game mixes elements from the rhythm and platformer genres in a variety of musical stages, some of which were inspired by music from the Pokémon games.

HarmoKnight is one of the few games outside of Pokémon that Game Freak has developed since the debut of the series.


Cover your ears – the planet of Melodia is under attack in this new game from the makers of Pokémon! The evil Noizoids, under the orders of their leader Gargan, aren’t just disrupting the normal tuneful lives of Melodians everywhere – they’ve also kidnapped Ariana, the princess of Symphony City! Help Tempo, the boy chosen to wield the legendary staff, and his friends as they travel across Melodia on a musical adventure in HarmoKnight, only from Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL. Over 50 stages of rhythm-action fun await, including bonus stages featuring much-loved tunes from some of your favourite Pokémon games!


The game is played out in 'stages' which act as the games levels. Each themed World has 8 stages (excluding Showtime Island and Metal Mountains, which only have 3). There are some stages that play outside of worlds, such as the tutorial level Woodwin Village and the Bonus Stages (Pokémon themed stages).

Every Stage has the option of playing at a Normal speed and a Fast speed. Getting a Gold rank on both modes will unlock official game art on the lower touch-screen. While the art unlocked is normally of a standard enemy, Boss levels will always reveal the image of the boss that was fought on that stage. In case of the Bonus Levels, you unlock playable character art and for World 8 you unlock Concept art.
