The lights are on
Square Enix has revealed the first details for its upcoming 3DS game Theatrhythm Final Fantasy. Surprisingly, the project did not start as a crazy bet to come up with a name stupider than Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy.
Theatrhythm involves forming a party of four Final Fantasy characters drawing from all of the core numbered entries. Then, using rhythm-based gameplay, you play through songs like "One Winged Angel," leveling up and collecting music and movies along the way.
Square Enix hasn't explained exactly how the music gameplay works, but the company did mention that the three stage types – field, battle, and event – each use different systems.
That sounds interesting and all, but I'd much happier if Square Enix were talking about Final Fantasy Versus XIII instead.
Email the author Joe Juba, or follow on Twitter, Facebook, and Game Informer.
So this is DDR meets the traditional FF gameplay meets Rock Band? Ouch, SquareEnix. And yeah, "That sounds interesting and all, but I'd much happier if Square Enix were talking about Final Fantasy Versus XIII instead" sums up my feelings about this announcement too.
Oh wow, when I read the headline I actually thought this was a joke article, this should be an interesting game.
This is so stupid it just might work!
...Nah, it's just stupid.
It's pretty tough for me to find a rhythm game I don't enjoy...
Looks cool. I would like to hear news about Versus XIII but the staff who is normally incharge of Final Fantasy games is not working on Versus XIII, its the ones behind Kingdom Hearts, thats why Square Enix is revealing other games like this and XIII-2, and thats why we didn't saw KH and Versus XIII news at e3. They have to much work, well let them take theyre time.
What the hell is wrong with square these days? Putting this out of my mind and waiting for deus ex and the (hopefully redeeming) ff13-2. Terrible name BTW
Looks interesting. I'd buy it if i was into rhythm games.
I couldn't agree with you more Joe, I really wanna hear more news on Versus XIII as well. I actually don't even know what to think about this. Sounds like it could be fun to play....but idk.
