In a rather surprising announcement by Square Enix, they confirmed that the latest installment in the series will be a rhythm game under the title Final Fantasy Theatrhythm. Continuing in the same way that other absurdly named games in the franchise such as Dissidia started, Theatrhythm aims to expand the FF series away from its JRPG roots to provide a unique experience to fans of the series. In terms of the rhythm based game play, from a purely visual standpoint it reminds more of Donkey Konga than any of the games in the Benami genre such as Dance Dance Revolution, Project DIVA or DJ MAX do. This is mainly because the commands appear in a linear sequence that require the appropriate button press, rather than a segregation approach used with the aformentioned games. While the game promises a wide range of compositions available, a couple of the more noteworthy pieces have already been confirmed such as Battle on the Big Bridge, To Zanarkand, Senleth Waterscape and, of course, One Winged Angel. Final Fantasy Theatrhythm is set to be released for the 3DS however a release date has yet to be confirmed.

    Put two vaguely relative words together, sure, whatever. But I really don’t understand the necessity of leaving out the e in theater.

    I know the fans wanted FF to try something new, but really? This? I’ll have to see it before I consider it to be a viable game…
