While some of my colleagues may not be fans of the first Final Fantasy-based rhythm game for the Nintendo 3DS, I continue to hold out hope for Square Enix's Theatrhythm Final Fantasy.


It's not that I'm a Final Fantasy fan or obsessive about its music. It's that I just love a good touchscreen-based rhythm game, hoping for something—anything—to scratch that Ouendan/Elite Beat Agents itch. And having something to play on my 3DS is an even better proposition.

Fortunately, Theatrhythm Final Fantasy's newest trailer from last week's Tokyo Game Show looks much better than the first. Agree? Disagree?
