Square Enix has made the unusual mash-up of music and role-playing game known as Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy official. The Nintendo 3DS game will span the music and characters of thirteen Final Fantasy games and comes from a promising developer.
Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy is in development for the 3DS from Tokyo-based studio indieszero. The developer's credits include quirky music tool Electroplankton and the video games based on Game Center CX series, known as Retro Game Challenge in North America, for the Nintendo DS.
According to Square Enix, Theatrhythm will feature four gameplay variations on its musical methods, field, battle and event. And according to Andriasang's translation of the official announcement, players can squad up with up to four party members, each plucked from Final Fantasy titles ranging from the NES original to FFXIII.
Remixed tunes from those games, including "Clash on the Big Bridge" from Final Fantasy V, "One Winged Angel" from Final Fantasy VII, "At Zanarkand" from Final Fantasy X and "The Sunleth Waterscape" from Final Fantasy XIII will be featured in the 3DS game.
