First-Ever Music-Themed Title Commemorates FINAL FANTASY Franchise’s 25thAnniversary

LOS ANGELES (Mar. 22, 2012) – Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in the Americas, announced THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY® (pronounced “theater rhythm”) exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system. This year marks the 25th anniversary of FINAL FANTASY, and THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY is the first music rhythm game in the history of the world famous franchise.

Developed by rhythm game veteran indieszero, SQUARE ENIX brings more than 70 musical scores spanning 25 years to THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY.   The title features music from key events, lush field themes and decisive battle arrangements.

THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY features a hybrid of music rhythm gameplay with RPG elements. Adorably re-designed heroes from the catalogue of FINAL FANTASY titles will set out on an adventure to combat memorable villains with the rhythmic taps of the player’s stylus. Players can:

  • Revisit their most cherished memories from each FINAL FANTASY title
  • Strive to achieve the highest ranks in the challenge mode
  • Collect and share “dark notes,” a random music sheet that is riddled with hidden loot within the Chaos Shrine
  • Seek out crystal shards to unlock hidden characters
