Combining hallmark FINAL FANTASY music with role playing game (RPG) elements, the new THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY CURTAIN CALL, announced today by Square Enix, Inc., will come to North America in 2014 exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS system.
Rendered in an adorable miniaturized art style, the title features more than 200 songs and 60 playable characters from throughout the FINAL FANTASY franchise – including FINAL FANTASY VII: Advent Children and FINAL FANTASY TACTICS, as well as more recently released titles like LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY XIII and FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn. Players can relive nostalgic moments as they tap their way through key FINAL FANTASY events, field themes and battle arrangements.
“Music is an integral part of FINAL FANTASY,” said Ichiro Hazama, producer. “As with the previous title, we wanted to shine the spotlight on that music for fans to re-experience their favorite moments from across the entire FINAL FANTASY catalogue.”
Key features include:
- Versus Battle Mode – Players can now compete head-to-head with friends and other users.
- Quest Medley Mode – Songs from the vast FINAL FANTASY music catalogue make up unique quests; players can choose their own routes through short, medium and long quests. Players can also share these quests with friends.
- New Characters – The game features over 60 new and old characters, including Barret (FINAL FANTASY VII) and Yuna (FINAL FANTASY X-2). Characters from spin-offs, like Benjamin (FINAL FANTASY MYSTIC QUEST), Ramza (FINAL FANTASY TACTICS) and Zack (CRISIS CORE -FINAL FANTASY VII-), also make their debut in this game.
- Collecta Crystarium – Clearing songs and winning battles allow players to obtain Collecta Cards that boost their character stats.
THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY CURTAIN CALL will be available later this year for $39.99. It is rated “T” (Teen). For more information on ratings, visit the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) website at www.esrb.org.
