Square Enix has announced today that Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call will be headed west later this year on Nintendo 3DS. The game features over 200 songs from a large variety of Final Fantasy games, and a gigantic cast of characters in absolutely adorable form. Along with the full song list from the original game, you can expect to find songs from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII along with many other titles. Key features of the title 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.
