Above: some hands-on impressions of Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call, the bizarrely-titled music game that Square Enix released for 3DS this week.

If you don't have the time or energy to watch the video, here's the gist of it: Curtain Call, a sequel to 2012's Theatrhythm, adds more songs, characters, and other goodies to an already-solid rhythm game. The basics are still the same—it's all just meatier. Curtain Call also brings with it a new mode called Quest Medleys in which you can traverse a map and fight boss battles, playing through random songs as you try not to die. That's pretty much the best part of the game, which is rad and totally worth playing if you're into Final Fantasy.
