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.
