Nintendo replies to blind Rhythm Heaven fan in braille letter


In your second heart warming story about a blind video game player in as many days, Nintendo sent a very special response to a blind fan of their Rhythm Heaven games in Japan.

A fifth-grade video game fan named Hibiki Sakai recently wrote a letter to Nintendo, saying that he was a huge fan of Rhythm Heaven as it has audio cues that helps him play. Hibiki has completed all the Rhythm Heaven games for pretty much every Nintendo platform that the series has released on. Hibiki thanks Nintendo for making these games and asks them to continue making them. To Hibiki and his father’s surprise, Nintendo wrote back. They sent on letter for his father to read and a letter in braille so Hibiki could read it himself. Nintendo wrote:

Thank you so much for sending us here at Nintendo your heartwarming letter.

We are so happy to hear that you’ve perfected and enjoyed Rhythm Tengoku, Rhythm Tengoku Gold, Minna no Rhythm Tengoku, and Rhythm Tengoku The Best.

We have passed on your letter to Nintendo’s development department. We want to keep making games that everyone can have fun playing, so thank you for your support.

This is a classy, one-of-a-kind move by Nintendo. They’ve been known to help gamers at a disadvantage out in the past and this is yet another case of that.
