We’ve already been able to rock out to two Theatrhythm games full of Final Fantasy tunes , so now it’s time to have one focusing on Square Enix’s other JRPG giant, Dragon Quest—complete with 65 tunes to show off.
Final Fantasy Theatrhythm: Curtain Call is getting some new DLC tracks—starting today you can get songs from Xenogears and even Seiken Dentetsu 3 (a Secret of Mana sequel that was never released in North America) for $0.99 each. Full list here.
Above: some hands-on impressions of Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call, the bizarrely-titled music game that Square Enix released for 3DS this week.
For their next Final Fantasy game, Square Enix is adding a bit, or a whole lot of word play.
I have already talked at length about how the music of Final Fantasy has affected me, so you can probably guess that I enjoyed the original Theatrhythm—though that's not to say it didn't have its problems. Luckily, the sequel, Theatrhythm: Curtain Call, has done a great job addressing these problems.
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, a music game built around the series' excellent soundtracks, came out for the 3DS around two years ago. Now, a sequel, Theatrhythm: Curtain Call, is out in Japan and I am happy to report that it is far more than just an updated track list.
Back when I was a kid in the late 80s and early 90s, game music didn't seem like anything special. Sure, I knew the Mario Bros. Rap and could hum the theme to Sonic the Hedgehog, but no game music ever captivated me. Then I played Final Fantasy VI.
While growing up, I, of course, knew the Mario and Sonic themes, but it wasn’t until I first played Final Fantasy VI that game music really started to affect me. To say I have a soft spot for the series’ music is an understatement—which is why I am ecstatic that Theatrhythm: Curtain Call has 109 new songs.
Already announced for Japan, the sequel to Square's wonderful rhythm game Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is coming to North America in 2014.
Undoubtedly one of the best features of the Final Fantasy series is its amazing soundtrack—hence the creation of last year's music game Theatrhythm Final Fantasy. Of course, even with over 70 songs in the game, that was just the tip of the iceberg: hence the creation of its upcoming sequel, Theatrhythm Final Fantasy:…
There's a listing for Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy up on the New Zealand iTunes Store, which almost certainly means that the rhythm game will be out in North America later today.
Just over the halfway mark, 2012 has already provided an embarrassment of riches for music game fans. We've had music games of every shape and color, with many more on the horizon. If you like gaming and you can keep a beat, chances are there's a game out there that you'll enjoy.
There's a new Final Fantasy game coming out tomorrow.
If you're a regular Kotaku Melodic reader, you're no stranger to the idea that despite many developers' cinematic aspirations, video games have more in common with music than they do with film.
I'm in California this week for the purpose of checking out a bunch of video games that will be shown at E3 next month. I'm a pre-E3 Judge*, you see, bouncing from one showcase with a game publisher to another, signing lots of paperwork in which I swear not to tell people about these games for a few weeks.
Square Enix said today it would include this cute stylus as a preorder bonus for Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, which is great for two reasons:
Square Enix has announced that its two hybrid franchise extenders—music/RPG and Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy and Disney-centric action/RPG Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance—will both be summer releases. The two 3DS games come to retail in July, with Theatrhythm available on July 3rd and Kingdom Hearts 3D on July 31st.
The characters of Theatrhythm Final Fantasy—both ally and enemy—come from across all thirteen Final Fantasies. Yet instead of mixing and matching art styles, Square Enix Japanese graphic designer Monster Octopus to re-create all these Final Fantasy characters in their own cute, doll-like style.
