Rhythm Tengoku Gold (リズム天国ゴールド;Rhythm Heaven Gold) is a 2008 rhythm game for the Nintendo DS developed by Nintendo and TNX, the second game of the Rhythm Tengoku series. This is the first game of the series to be released internationally, as Rhythm Heaven in the Americas and as Rhythm Paradise in Europe. Tsunku is one of the game's producers and its primary composer. It was one of the top-selling releases of 2008 in the Japanese market, selling over 1.8 million copies.


The Japanese version features tracks performed by THE Possible (恋のRung Rung パラダイス;Love's Rung Rung Paradise), Canary Club (~雨に打たれて~;Struck by the Rain), and individually Hashiguchi Erina (こういうのが恋なの?;Is It Love?) and Tsunku himself (明るいロケンロー;Bright Rock 'n' Roll). These were translated and dubbed by other performers for the international releases, including Kimura Ayaka (Struck by the Rain in English).

Like the original, Rhythm Tengoku Gold has dozens of different minigames with different specific types of gameplay and audiovisual cues. However, while the original used button presses; Gold uses taps, holds, and slides on the touch screen as the basis for its games.
