Rhythm Tengoku (Arcade) was an arcade version of Rhythm Tengoku. It was developed by Nintendo and published by SEGA. It was released on September 20th 2007.
According to an Iwata Asks interview apparently SEGA approached them with an offer for an arcade version as the game was popular with SEGA staff. Osawa and Ko Takeuchi was impressed because he never thought Rhythm Tengoku was able to gain a following.
