@shmedo yes because we all know final fantasy music sucks right?........ rhythm game + greatest music ever = fun game.
Nintendo 3DS rhythm game arriving in North America, Europe, and other PAL regions sometime this summer.
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is coming to the West. Square Enix today announced that the 3DS rhythm game spin-off to its role-playing franchise will come to the United States, Europe, and other PAL regions this summer.
The beat-matching game went on sale exclusively in Japan in February, selling more than 67,000 units in that region during its launch week.
The first rhythm game based on the RPG series, Theatrhythm Final Fantasy sports more than 70 scores that span the franchise's quarter-century history.
In the game, players tap the 3DS touch screen to the beat of a selected song, while battle scenes play out based on user performance.

Seems like every positive comment on the game is getting low thumbs. Well... I love the FF series ('til X), I love Nobuo Uematsu and his music, I love Rhythm games... Why wouldn't I love this game, as casual as it may be? It is indeed fan service, as Dissidia was. The death of the FF series happened some years ago... This is something good, instead...
How much you want to bet this sells twice as many as final fantasy 13 part 2. Casual games are winning.
Interesting but not good enough.. I hope the game gets far more sophisticated than just following a line on the screen.. Christ...
This got good reviews from famitsu. I think elite beat agents + final fantasy is a great idea, personally.
I cannot for the life of me pronounce Theatrythm. But at least it's not as bad of a name as Revengance...
I would rather have heard it was Type-0 or Lord of Apocalypse that was coming over, but that's just me I suppose.
I love the fact that Final Fantasy tries different things with it's titles, like Dirge of Cerberus is a shooter, Revenant Wings is a real time strategy, Tactics is a turn based strategy etc. They try different things, sometimes they aren't as good as others and don't sell that good, but not many other companies do this stuff. Maybe it's cashing on big name like this, but I at least raise my hat when companies boldly try different things especially with a franchise as old as this. Definitely looking forward for this one, hope it's good, and just gotta love music from Uematsu, he truly is a god of video game music :)
Why does it have to be a Final Fantasy title? Nintendo could have just named it Theatrhythm and labelled it as a "music based RPG", coulda made some nice attention. Original music too!
But but but i already own this.. I love this game if you love something like elite beat agents or just love the music of final fantasy you should get it. has a surprising amount of depth to it.
Interesting, but I'm pretty tired of rhythm games. Tapping a screen over and over again doesn't transform into fun for me. At least with games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band, you actually had instruments to play. Even the DJ game had a turntable.
