Final Fantasy Finds It’s Rhythm: Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Announced

This is honestly the type of game announcement that would have likely pissed me off years ago as a hardcore Squaresoft fan who was sick of the company’s experiments into genres other than the traditional JRPG. Perhaps I’ve gotten older and have lost my fighting spirit, but when it was announced that Square Enix was creating a Final Fantasy rhythm game for the 3DS, I immediately thought it was one of the coolest ideas I’d ever heard.

As it turns out, you’ll be doing lots of RPG-like things in Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy like exploring dungeons and doing battle with enemies, but the game will feature rhythm-based gameplay mechanics, perhaps centered around tapping the screen in time with the music. The game was announced in the latest issue of Shonen Jump without many accompanying details, but the above scan that we stole from Siliconera shows a bit of the action. I think that’s Cloud, Lightning, an Onion Knight, and the Warrior of Light that we’re seeing.

What do you think of this surprise announcement from Square Enix? One of the coolest ideas ever, or another example of Square Enix diluting the Final Fantasy franchise with needless spin-offs?
