Recommended Videos


This week, Square Enix released a new rhythm game for iPhone and iPad, titled Symphonica. It lets you play the first three chapters for free, after which you have to pay to buy the rest of the game.


Symphonica is set in the city of Einsatz, founded by legendary conductor, Carlos, and its citizens are called “the Audience”. Talented musicians from around the world come to Einsatz in the hops of performing in the King Hall at the top of Concerto Tower. You play as Takt, who’s come to Einsatz with the dream of being the world’s greatest conductor.


Takt is soon put in charge of the Fayharmonic, a ramshackle orchestra on the verge of collapse. Symphonica has a proper story involving various characters, and as a conductor, you also have the ability to play only the songs you like. Oh, and all of these songs are based on classical music like Beethoven’s Fifth. Symphonica has 50 songs in total.
