The lights are on
If you take the Theatrhythm Final Fantasy plunge this July, be sure to stop by the Chaos Shrine. There, you'll have access to randomly generated song selections that you can play to earn characters, items, and additional songs. Square Enix has released a slew of screens showing these suckers in action, too.
The images in the gallery below may not make you want to hum along, but they do provide a look at the game's menu and battle system. These Dark Notes pack a layer of social interaction as well, and players can share their favorite Dark Notes through the 3DS' Street Pass system. Dark Notes are randomly generated combinations of field and battle songs, so if you discover one worth sharing, you may as well do it.
For more info on the game's job system, check out our preview. The game is due out in North America on July 3.

I'm still not certain what I think about this game. I'll probably buy it but not for a while. I do love me some Final Fantasy.
I don't know if I am going to bother with this game yet or not...
This game is not for everyone, but fans of the series with some of the best music in gaming are in for a treat. I am looking forward to this, although my hype is limited. It is what it is... but the idea is great IMO
While the words "final" and "fantasy" coupled together are still enough to make some people pay attention, games like this are likely the reason those two words are losing their clout in the US. Does Square Enix have any respect for its overseas audience anymore? Then again, if I want meaty RPGs I can sink my teeth into these days, I tend to look outside the JRPG market by default... and maybe calling this game an RPG is unfair to the genre as it is, since it's apparently a rhythm game. Durp. It's in the title. Oh well.
This looks awesome.
Would love to see what you are talking about....
SWEET! NEW SCREENSHOTS...Wait, where are they?
da *** is this?
This.....doesn't look fun.
