Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy announced

Quote:
Square Enix has a new Final Fantasy game on the way for 3DS, but it's not quite the RPG we're used to. The new game is titled Theatrhythm Final Fantasy. Yes, this is the Final Fantasy themed rhythm game we've all been waiting for.

Revealed in this week's Jump, Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is a "Theater Rhythm Action" game. The game has field scenes set in dungeons and towns, and battle scenes that resemble the side-view battles of older Final Fantasy games. However, everything is played like a rhythm game, where you tap the screen in accordance with prompts.

Needless to say, the game's music is pulled from past Final Fantasy games. Characters, including the likes of Lightning and Cloud, are also in the game, only they're shown in cute "chibi" style form, resembling the avatars from the mobile Kingdom Hearts game.

There seems to be somewhat of a story to the game. Jump says that the classic Final Fantasy characters are fighting to return light to the crystal.

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is currently without a final release date.

Yep. Random.

Cute idea, but if this is the new title Nomura is working on alongside his other projects, then I'm just gonna say GTFO and give me my Versus. Damn it.

Re: Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy announced

A little off topic but:

I think i'm starting to lose hope in FF these past couple years. It's like ever since Hironobu left, square hasn't been the same. Although I liked XII and XIII I thought they felt completely different from the rest of the FF's. Almost like a different series. Not as fun as likeable as the rest of the FF's IMO. (well except for a couple)

I bet it's going to be too easy. I'll still get it. I love rhythm games.

To be fair, if you don't count XIV, there have only been 2.

Should we expect a cameo from Commander Video?

Meh, I was actually hoping they were making a new Crystal Chronicles game for the 3DS.

I love how Square just slaps the FF name on ANY new game they make, regardless of what it is. Remember when Square used to make new IPs? Remember when they had series other than FF and DQ? What happened to that?

Re: Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy announced

Lol, yeah, I was just thinking, they'll call anything a Final Fantasy game, won't they?

Those look like some fugly-ass vector graphics

Do you think they'll include a levelling system that makes it easier to hit the notes the more notes you hit?

They'll cancel it, mark my words.

I think Eidos should absorb Square, not the other way around. The only good games coming out of Squeenix now are developed by Eidos anyway.

Pretty much.

They've been working on it since what, '03? I don't understand why it takes Squeenix so long to make their games, most of the time they're not even good.

Re: Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy announced

'03? Whaaa?

It was announced in '06, but it sounds like it didn't actually go into development until at least 2007, or possibly even 2008. But yeah, it was announced way too early and needs to hurry the eff up. Thankfully there's supposed to be another update in next week's Famitsu, but there have been dozens of those and none of them ever have any release information. Wahhhhhhhhhhh.

Well technically FF and DQ weren't the only series' they released. They recently released Bust-A-Move Universe.

Re: Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy announced

This game is developed by Jupiter, the maker of The World Ends With You and Pokemon Pinball.

Therefore, DAY ONE.

Edit: Turns out this is completely false. Thanks Shane Bettenhausen. It's actually by the maker of Electroplankton.

Re: Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy announced

I reckon they should have made this a spin-off / revival of the Bouncer series instead, featuring the Cactuar Jacket as the first ever 3DS DLC.

OK, Theatrhythm, I'm sorry I ever doubted you. You win.



And some more footage, sans sound, unfortunately:



And the official site:

I read that too. It was just from the twitter of someone who doesn't even work there though. Not exactly reliable.

Game reminds me of Gitaroo Man. Looking forward to it.
