Square Enix Announces Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Game That Merges Music And RPG

Final Fantasy fans have a new treat in store for them, though I don’t have an exact release date yet, but at least now we know it’s coming this summer, and only to the Nintendo 3DS, but it looks like an interesting idea.

A curious, and unique title, Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is a blend of RPG and music rhythm gameplay, and no, I don’t really know what that means. Take a look though, and mark this one as a great gift idea.

First-Ever Music-Themed Title Commemorates FINAL FANTASY Franchise’s 25th Anniversary

Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in the Americas, announced THEATRHYTHM™ FINAL FANTASY® (pronounced “theater rhythm”) exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system. This year marks the 25th anniversary of FINAL FANTASY, and THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY is the first music rhythm game in the history of the world famous franchise.

Developed by rhythm game veteran indieszero, SQUARE ENIX brings more than 70 musical scores spanning 25 years to THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY. The title features music from key events, lush field themes and decisive battle arrangements.

THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY features a hybrid of music rhythm gameplay with RPG elements. Adorably re-designed heroes from the catalogue of FINAL FANTASY titles will set out on an adventure to combat memorable villains with the rhythmic taps of the player’s stylus. Players can:

  • Revisit their most cherished memories from each FINAL FANTASY title
  • Strive to achieve the highest ranks in the challenge mode
  • Collect and share “dark notes,” a random music sheet that is riddled with hidden loot within the Chaos Shrine
  • Seek out crystal shards to unlock hidden characters
