Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call sets the stage later this year on the 3DS

Square Enix has announced that their latest rhythm-based FF title, Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call, will hit the Nintendo 3DS later this year in North America.

This image alone has convinced me to buy 10 copies

Rendered in a miniature, “so cute it hurts” art style, Curtain Call will feature over 200 songs and 60 playable characters from the FF series, spanning from Final Fantasy Tactics to Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Relive happy memories as you tap your way through key Final Fantasy events, field themes, and battle arrangements.

Ichiro Hazama, producer of Curtain Call, had this to share about the upcoming title:

“Music is an integral part of Final Fantasy. As with the previous title, we wanted to shine the spotlight on that music for fans to re-experience their favorite moments from across the entire Final Fantasy catalog.”

I can't wait to kill this jerk with the power of MUSIC

Gamers can look forward to the following features once Curtain Call releases:

Versus Battle Mode – challenge your friends and strangers to a dance-off.

Quest Medley Mode – choose between short, medium, or long quests and tap away to music from the vast collection of Final Fantasy titles. These quests you choose to embark on can also be shared with buddies.

New Characters – familiar faces make their debut in the Theatrhythm series, including Barret from FF VII and Yuna from FF X-2 (so Hot Pants Yuna instead of Summoner Yuna). Characters from spin-offs also pop up, like Benjamin from Mystic Quest (really?), Ramza from Tactics, and Zack from Crisis Core.

Collecta Crystarium – successful completion of songs and battles will reward your characters with Collecta Cards that boost their stats.

Check out an announcement trailer below, and more details on the game at its website. Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call will retail for $ 39.99. Anyone feeling the rhythm with this one?

Square Enix Website Inserts Thief’s Garrett Into Playable Final Fantasy [April Fools' Day]

One nice part of Square Enix owning the Thief license is
they can do fun stuff with it on days like today. If you go to the official Japanese
Thief site
, you will be taken to a Final Fantasy battle where you can only play
as the "Master Thief" class, who has way lower HP than the other classes.

Thief has eight options to choose from, seven of which are steal ('nusumu' in Japanese) and the other one is run away ('nigeru'). With that information, you ought to be able to puzzle your way through, even if you can't read Japanese.

It’s pretty funny as it is, and even more funny if you can read Japanese. There are dozens of lines in Japanese about what the thief
was successful or unsuccessful in stealing. Some of the lines I saw read “You
stole car keys,” “The bike you stole could not run well,” “You stole something
useless!” and “What’s yours is mine.”

Square Enix Holds Final Fantasy X/X-2 Auction For Charity

Square Enix recently helped celebrate the launch of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster with a charity art exhibit, and art director Yusuke Naora and producer Yoshinori Kitase made an appearance.

As a special surprise to guests, Naora performed a live art demonstration, creating an original piece just for the exhibit. "I usually don't have this many people watching me work, so if my hand gets a little shaky because of nerves, I'd appreciate it if you let it slide," Naora said with a laugh during the demonstration.

(Please visit the site to view this media)

You can check out the video above to hear some of the questions fans asked Naora as he worked, such as whether he would rather have a chocobo or moogle in real life. All of the art from the exhibit, including the original piece created by Naora, is being auctioned off here. The proceeds from the auction will be going towards Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts. – The Feed

Final Fantasy IV hits the Amazon App store out of nowhere (just like a randomized battle)

Square Enix has let the world know that their beloved classic, Final Fantasy IV, is now available on the Amazon App store for $ 15.99, for second generation or later Kindle Fire series/ Smartphones and Tablets supporting Android 2.3 or later (I get technical so you gentle readers can make an informed decision!).

Released originally back in 1991 on the SNES as Final Fantasy II and remade IN 3D! for the DS in 2008, Final Fantasy IV remains one of the most popular entries in the FF series, and one of my personal faves.

The Amazon version of FFIV has 3D graphics like the DS release, only optimized for mobile devices, touch screen controls, enhanced audio and voiceovers from the 2006 remake (how many versions of FFIV are there?!), and a difficulty level selection so even newbs can enjoy this blast from the past.

Gamers can download Final Fantasy IV: You Guys Have Been Waiting Forever For This To Hit Android here and can read up on all the Smartphone Final Fantasy titles here. Check out this screenshot with amazing dialogue:
