A big bundle of screenshots from the emphatically Japanese Final Fantasy rhythm game have hit the web. This 3DS title is…well, it's something.

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, aside from having a name that makes me angry just to type, has players doing Elite Beat Agents-like taps and slides across the touch screen in time with classic Final Fantasy tunes. The art is exceptionally cutesy, with big-headed heroes taking on cartoony foes and wandering around colorful landscapes.

Square Enix has yet to say anything about a U.S. release date; all of the recent info from Theatrhythm has come from Japanese publications aimed at that market. I know at least one GI editor who will be very upset if this doesn't show up here.
