Theatrhythm: Curtain Call Shows Us Its Final Fantasy Type-0 Characters And More

By Sato . February 24, 2014 . 2:19am

In addition to having plenty of songs and characters from main-numbered Final Fantasy games, Theatrythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call will also include characters from Final Fantasy Type-0. Square Enix gives us a closer look at the two characters, and more, in their latest update on the game. First up, though, are new features in this game.



As far as gameplay goes, Theatrhythm: Curtain Call will be similar to the first game, with the addition of some new features. The above video gives us a look at some of the newly added features for Curtain Call. While selecting songs, you now have a “random” option, in case you’re feeling indecisive. tracks can also be sorted according to the games, and names, so you won’t have to go through all 200+ tracks to find your favorite songs.


Speaking of favorite songs, you’ll be able to find them even easier by clicking the heart marks for your favorite tracks. There’s also a quick-start feature that allows you to jump right into a song at the data select screen.


Additionally, the field-music stages will have special airship versions, where you’ll see the airship like Cid’s Highwind from Final Fantasy VII flying in the background.


Above are Final Fantasy Type-0 characters Machina Kunagiri and Rem Tokimiya.


In addition to the main series of games, Final Fantasy Type-0 and Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will also have special scenes featured along with their tracks.


Finally, here’s a look at some of the enemies you’ll be facing in the game, including Reno from the Turks:


Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call is slated for release on April 24th, 2014 for Nintendo 3DS in Japan.

    Sweet, final aeon Jecht! More or less confirms otherworld. :D

    • 하세요

      It was in the first game as DLC, so I’m assuming it would be in this one as well as standard.

  • Aemette

    Wasn’t Ace gonna in this game as well? Or have I been imagining him since the annoucement of this game?

    • laoni

      Oh yes, Ace is in the game too, here!

      • Aemette

        Sweet~! I thought they had scrapped him at the last second or something. Him, Eight, and the other two above characters are the only ones I know from Type-0. I need Type-0 and Curtain Call in my life ASAP~

  • laoni

    Also, in the released trailers that came with these screenshots, I found two new characters!

    Barrett and Edge have joined the cast

    At around 0:15 in this trailer~

    • komiko12

      Nice! If Rosa is also in then you have all the final party members of FInal Fantasy IV.

      If only they could also include Trance Terra.

      • Fox

        Including the twins?

  • ZetaSiren

    heeeey, Reno, looking stylin’

  • Pyrofrost

    I’m looking forward to seeing the track list, and I’m hoping it includes a good bit of FFXI music :3

  • 하세요

        • Arcana Drill

          i think SE already gave up and hopes that we forget… :(

          • Kornelious

            We NEVER forget >:(

  • hofreith

  • Gyro Zeppeli

    Damn Square needs to hurry up and let us know we’re getting this in the US, I’m really, really excited for it

  • dragoon_slayer12

    I want this to hit the eshop so bad. I loved the first, but the low selection of songs really hurt it for me. This is perfect for eshop, a game worth keeping on you at all times

  • wat iz dis type 0 u talkin ’bout?

    Golbez lookin pimp yo!

  • Time Sage

    XIV is part of the main series <.<

  • Luis Camargo

    Salt and wound meet again as Square Enix laughs….

  • Liamv2

    Hi square enix remember us in the west? We’re still waiting on that FF type-0 to make it over here.

    • GH56734

      Already dubbed and translated, they just won’t release it. There are fans to do that part. Something is bound to be released around before this summer.
      However, if this Theatrythm game gets exported somehow, you can count on those characters to be removed during localization.

    • Slickyslacker

      If anything, it would be released for the Vita, seeing as the PSP is finished. Probably as a download exclusive. This may very well still happen, seeing as all Tabata needs is the go-ahead from his higher-ups.

  • Max

    Still no details on wether it will make use of save data or DLC from the first game or not?

    • 하세요

      By the looks of things, all songs that were DLC in the first game are standard now, so there’s no way to really transfer them over.

  • Arcana Drill

    So cute XD
    If i had a 3ds this game would be one of the first games in my library.

  • alixraen

    I can’t help but feel the character designs would be better liked if they were all styled like Reno here instead of giving everyone the same template of a face.

    • Ricardo C

      I guess you have Kingdom Hearts Mobile to blame. Square first used that art style for that and then it leaked into Final Fantasy when they started to make phone charms out of the Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy characters. So I guess thats how these games came to be because maybe the art style was popular in Japan that they decided to make games with the same art style. I guess the Reno art you see here is their attempt of making an “evolved” form of the art style.

  • Ricardo C

    Because of Type-0 I’ve learned to read the title before clicking on things for the picture. I thought if Agito did well over in the West (they pointed out it’ll most likely be released here) then they’ll consider releasing Type-0 if it was for that reason. I wouldn’t mind getting the English version if it were to be. I dont do fan-translations, I rather have official translations (some fan-translations are weird, Im not saying they’re bad).
    *looks at my JP copy of Type-0*
    Square dont you want my money a second time? I just wanna hear Nine, Sice, Seven, and Rem speak in English ;__;

  • Syn

    Kick me in the nuts while youre at it square, its only right at this point -_-

  • DeAndre Atchison

    Give me the fate theme from xiv and money shall be thrown everywhere

  • kthanxyousuck

    I’m serious…just gimme the game…..
