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: Curtain Call.

While the final release of Curtain Call is reported to have over 200 songs, the demo at TGS 2013 had a scant dozen. However, among these were the theme song from Final Fantasy Type-0 (which was DLC for the first game) and the “One Winged Angel” remix from Advent Children.


Hands on, Curtain Call played identically to the original game (as far as I could tell) with lots of tapping, holding, and flicking the stylus in time with the music. To see how it looked in action, check out the video below.

[Sorry for the lack of in-game sound. All game's in the Square-Enix booth used headphones only.]

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call will be released in Spring 2014 for the 3DS in Japan. There is currently no official word on an international release.
