Theatrhythm Final Fantasy - More Details Surface
Andriasang has a bunch of new articles and content concerning Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, the 3DS rhythm game that was announced last week. Here's some of the most interesting information.
- The character designs are by MonsterOctopus. This artist was responsible for the avatars in Kingdom Hearts Mobile, which these new designs most closely resemble.
- The Japanese official site has opened. Revealed on said site is the game's developer, which is indies zero. This studio is no stranger to the music genre; one of their previous works is the excellent and unique DS title Electroplankton. They have also worked on Retro Game Challenge, Personal Trainer: Cooking, and the Final Fantasy Art Museum series of collector's cards.
- The game's story apparently once again concerns the tensions between the gods Cosmos and Chaos. This time around, the luster of the crystal must be restored through the power of music.
- Finally, here's some gameplay details. Individual titles from the Final Fantasy series can be selected. In addition, each title is separated into three sections—field, battle, and event. These three modes each have their own play style. Other features include a four-member party system, multiple difficulty settings, some sort of character leveling system, music and movie collections, and of course, many favorite musical pieces from the FF series, including FFVII's own "One Winged Angel".

Final Fantasy Rhythm Game Announced for 3DS
Yes, you read that right. A 3DS game called Theatrhythm Final Fantasy has been revealed in this week's Jump, and is described as "Theater Rhythm Action". There are dungeons, towns, and battle scenes, with touchscreen-controlled rhythm elements. The music is, of course, from previous Final Fantasies.
The characters are rendered in a chibi style, with Cloud and FFXIII's Lightning confirmed to be appearing. The story seems to be a traditional Final Fantasy-style one involving a crystal.
Not much else about the game is known at this time.
