First Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Screens and Art Appear

Posted by James Newton

To the Cloud!

The 3DS's first taste of Final Fantasy gaming is coming in the unexpected form of Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, a rhythm game in a Chibi style.

Contrary to early reports, the game is not developed by Jupiter, the team behind the phenomenal The World Ends With You, but instead Electroplankton and Retro Game Challenge team indieszero is handling development duties.

Square Enix's official site hosts the first screenshots and details, revealing some of the songs you'll be able to play through, from Final Fantasy VII's One Winged Angel to Sunleth Waterscape from Final Fantasy XIII.

What do you make of Theatrhythm?

looks a bit better than what i saw in the mag scans recently.

With such some character designs there's no excuse not to have every single FF character in it. It should definitely have more than the Dissidia games. If not then they're just lazy.

The first thing I thought of was Let's Tap for Wii. lol. Let's Tap: Final Fantasy!

I'm disappointed that its actually not Jupiter making it but it still looks pretty good. Songs I'm hoping for are dark messenger, (FFIX) Seymour Omnis, (FFX) born anew and fighting fate (both from FFXIII). I'm also disappointed that the music is only from the main series as it would've been good to have the creator from FFIV: the after years.

Maybe I was being a tad harsh with my comment on the other page. It actually looks kinda fun. Not as fun as a 5/6 remake or Tactics would have been, though

hmmm... waiting on a few more details, but if they sound promising then day one purchase for me.

i dont mind the visual presentation, it actually looks cool. im just really worried that the gameplay will get very repetitive

This actually makes me wonder if it's going to be like the RPG game on Taiko No Tatsujin 3 for the DS. That would be neat.

Square Enix just keeps milking Final Fantasy like there's no tomorrow



SwerdMurd said:

been forever and a half since i've tried a rhythm game..... there's a chance i'll give this one a shot, but FF milking is getting old...



Beechbone said:

Might be fun, we'll see. Doesn't matter what you think about FF games you have to appreciate the music of these games. Interesting new addition to both FF and rythm genre.

Assuming this will have RPG elements, I don't think it will be a long one. Rhythm games tend to get tiresome after the first 20/30 mins... Having said that I'll probably end buying it.



JayceJa said:

ive been thinking about how it could be done, and i have decided that my ideal goal for it would be set in a final fantasy world, and RPG combat featuring action commands similar to M&L or paper mario, but rhythm based

If it's from the makers of DualPenSports it's good in my book.
