Originally announced last year, Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy came as a surprise for Final Fantasy fans perhaps unused to the idea of a rhythym game addendum to the series. Combining character design by Monster Octopus and music throughout the series, the game celebrates twenty-five years of Final Fantasy history. To recreate a sense of nostalgia, the original music tracks from each game were used, rather than arrangements, with different types of music reflected in different game modes.
A healthy lineup of downloadable content will be coming after release, and our review will be coming by weeks end!
So for those of you picking up the game today, what are your impressions? Let us know in the comments below!
