Theatrhythm Final Fantasy

The majestic, sweeping soundscapes of a Final Fantasy soundtrack are, to many fans, one of the highlights of playing a game from Square Enix's long-running series. But until now, the soundtrack has always been part of the background presentation, not brought to the forefront of the experience.

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, revealed in this week's Jump magazine in Japan, promises traditional Final Fantasy dungeon-crawling, town-wandering and enemy battling -- but with a rhythm action game twist. The game looks set to incorporate stylized versions of characters from various Final Fantasy games including Cloud (FFVII), the Warrior of Light (FFI), Lightning (FFXIII) and Onion Knight (FFIII). And it probably goes without saying that the game will feature versions of iconic Final Fantasy musical numbers throughout.

The game is hitting Nintendo 3DS at an as-yet unspecified time. This sounds like the sort of game that is weird enough to just stay in Japan and be forgotten by the West, but last month Siliconera spotted that Square Enix had filed a trademark for the name "Theatrhythm" in Europe and North America, suggesting the game will see a worldwide release.
