Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call Release Date and Special Editions Confirmed

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

CDs! 3DS case! Cards!

We've been giving plenty of coverage to the Japanese version of Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call here at Nintendo Life, though we were relieved recently to hear that the expanded version of the popular rhythm game was being localised for the West. In exciting news Square Enix has not only confirmed release dates, but announced some attractive extra-fancy versions, too.

To start with release dates, this one will arrive on 16th September in North America and 19th September in Europe. Participating retailers will have a pre-order Limited Edition that comes with a free "THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY CURTAIN CALL - REMIX SELECTIONS" CD, which has five tracks — if you find the right store your pre-order should entitle you to that version while stock lasts. There is also, pictured above, a rather attractive Collector's Edition, which has the following goodies.

  • Nintendo 3DS Collector’s Pouch — An exclusive, limited edition Nintendo 3DS Collector's Pouch that fits all models of the system.
  • 5-track THEATRHYTHM REMIX CD
  • 20-track BEST OF THEATRHYTHM CD — An exclusive collection of songs from the 221 tracks featured in THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY CURTAIN CALL
  • 5 Premium CollectaCards — Exclusive set of five Premium, limited edition cards, based on the popular CollectaCard designs of the game. Enter the password on the card into the game to get the in-game version of that CollectaCard!

These are available in limited quantities from the official Square Enix store in North America and Europe (this is the UK link). It's priced at $69.99 in the US and a rather decent £44.99 in the UK.

Are you excited about this one, perhaps planning to get hold of one of the special editions?

Wait a minute, this is the release date that Metacritic had on their website since a month or so ago. How did they know?

Anyway, getting this, although that special edition is too pricey. And 5 tracks CDs are a joke, not even the SMAS 25th Anniversary CD was so empty!

Very nice set; I'd be happy with even a digital release of Dragon Quest VII for 3DS at this point. Still holding out hope for a E3 announment.

Quite sure i'll get the Collector's Edition. Quite good value for money there, especially compared to the Deluxe Edition of Bravely Default.

You know what?
I WILL go for this.
Arkham Knight got delayed today, so I've got tons of money now.

If you told the teenage me--the teen who lived and breathed Final Fantasy, and especially loved its music--that I would greet a limited edition Final Fantasy music game package with complete and utter apathy, he wouldn't believe you. But, here we are. Weird. It's an attractive edition that I'm sure fans will appreciate, though.

I wasn't going to get this for a good while, but... I really want that special edition.

I'll see where my finances are around then. Danganronpa 2 and Shinovi Versus come first.

That's nice and all, but WOW THAT PRICE. I'd much rather wait for the game to dip to $20 like the original did.

@Nik-Davies Arkham Knight delayed? That's the only Non Wii U game that I'm interested in... hmm... maybe they're making a Wii U Version after all and I wouldn't need to buy a stupid console for it...

@Zorox88 Don't expect an E3 announcement, but I'm sure it's coming. At least to the US.
I think Jedward killed the Dragon Quest series in Europe...

Darn, just when I plan to get this digital, they release this to tempt me in buying the physical copy. Well it's working.

Edit: Hmm, with tax and shipping to my area, it comes up to $86.64. Still wondering if I should bite the bullet.

@LeasTwanteD Not sure how you figure that. The Bravely Default CE was only $10 more than the regular edition and came with AR cards (far more than 5 collectacards), a nice little art book and a sample cd that had 10 songs (I paid roughly $53 for my copy in February).

I love Theatrhythm as much as the next guy but $30 more than the regular edition (not including shipping and taxes, which will be more because of having to purchase it through Square's website, most likely around $90 total in the end) is definitely not worth it, value wise, in comparison to the BD:CE.

I'm gonna stick with the free upgrade to the LE because I already have a 3DS case, the Collectacard passwords will most likely be online and I can always listen to the songs through other means, rather than paying an extra $50.

After getting the first Theatrhythm Final Fantasy... I'll probably pass on this one

Tempting, but this is one game that completely makes the most sense (to me that is) to have in digital form.

Good to know. The site says about 55e for the SE which isn't bad because you'll probably end up paying close to that with regular game. Cheapest I found first Theatrhythm was 30e from German Amazon.

I hope there would be some left when I am sure that I have the money to preorder it.

@Joshiroth The pricing seems to be very different between NA and Europe then. I've never seen the Bravely Default CE for less than 89€ here and i can preorder the Curtain Call CE for a cool 55€ (shipping included) via Square Enix.

Really want the Collector's edition, but $70 is pretty steep. I don't think I payed that much for the Mark of Mastery edition for KH3d or the CE for Bravely Default. Square is getting a bit greedy if you ask me. They should take off atleast 10-15 dollars since they're making it a website exclusive and you have to pay for shipping and handling as well.
