New Theatrhythm DLC extends the already epic-length music game

The third round of DLC for Theatrhythm Final Fantasy landed today, adding another four classic FF soundtrack selections to the game’s minishop. Another four are due July 26th, which will bring the downloadable total up to 16 tunes available to add to the game’s built-in library of 70+ music tracks. The DLC costs 99 cents per selection.

This is great news for North American FF music fans, and I hope the DLC keeps coming. It’s a win-win situation, since — even without the additional tracks — the games contains a massive amount of music for a 3DS cart.

Theaterhythm Final Fantasy’s been out since July 3rd, and hasn’t left my 3DS cartridge slot since launch day. Fighting classic FF villains using only my flawed sense of rhythm has turned out to be very addictive. The game just keeps going and going, far beyond the closing credits of its initial six-hour quest. It’s a great pick-up-and-play title. I’ve been playing it a half hour here and there, and was startled to find I’ve sunk nearly forty hours into it and I’m nowhere near unlocking all the characters, finding all the boss battles, or finishing the movie, music player, trophy or card collections.

Still loving this game; it’s going to take Kingdom Hearts to unseat it as reigning 3DS title.
