Square Enix and Retro Game Challenge developer Indies Zero has a new take on the Final Fantasy series. Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy is a music game with the gods from Dissidia: Final Fantasy mythology, Chaos and Cosmos. The space between them isn’t empty it’s rhythm, which fuels a crystal that spreads music throughout the world. Discord in the universe made the crystal lose its luster and your job is to lead Final Fantasy warriors to restore its brilliance.
Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy spans the numbered series with heroes from Final Fantasy I-XIII. Each game is actually its own episode in Theatrhythm. Players pick a party of four characters and go through three stages – field, battle, and events. All of these are played as a music game. Don’t worry if that genre is not your forte, Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy has multiple difficulty modes. After each stage characters will level up, a feature Square Enix plans on explaining at a later date. Players can also unlock music and movies for their collection.
Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy will draw upon the series large library of music. Square Enix confirmed a few songs like the Final Fantasy theme, "Battle on the Big Bridge" (Gilgamesh’s theme) from Final Fantasy V, "One Winged Angel" from Final Fantasy VII, "To Zanarkand" from Final Fantasy X, and "Sunleth Waterscape" from Final Fantasy XIII.
Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy is in development for the Nintendo 3DS. Square Enix have not announced a release date for the title.
