Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, And Other Tracks Coming To Theatrhythm Final Fantasy In Japan

Some non-Final Fantasy music tracks are heading to Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call – in Japan, at least.

News of the DLC comes from dengekionline, which was translated by Siliconera. The DLC songs, which includes tracks from Final Fantasy XIV, Final Fantasy Type-0, the SaGa series, Secret of Mana, and Chrono Trigger, release in Japan on December 24. There's no word yet on whether these tracks will come to North America yet.

You can see the list of promised tracks below:

  • Ultima – Final Fantasy XIV
  • Hard to Miss – Final Fantasy XIV
  • Zero – Final Fantasy Type-0
  • Opening Titles – Romancing SaGa 2
  • Passionate Rhythm – Romancing SaGa –Minstrel Song-
  • Battle #4 – SaGa Frontier
  • Meridian Dance – Secret of Mana
  • Chrono Trigger – Chrono Trigger

We're big fans of Chrono Trigger 'round these parts, and you can learn
why by reading the aptly titled feature Why We Love Chrono Trigger, by heading here.

Our Take
I doubt few would complain about these tracks coming to North America, and I imagine no one would complain about a dedicated Theatrhythm Chrono Trigger. I would especially like to see the track below be featured in a rhythm game. That take on the Chrono Trigger theme comes from the album The Brink of Time, which composer Yasunori Mitsuda was fully involved with.

Reader Discussion: Final Fantasy XV Or Kingdom Hearts III?

Perhaps it's unfair to make a judgement call based on how little we know about each game, but which one are you more excited about?

They're arguably the two most anticipated titles on the way from Square Enix, and the two seem to be overlapping more and more. Where Kingdom Hearts began by borrowing characters from the Final Fantasy universes, the Final Fantasy series (based on the recent trailers) seems to be borrowing mechanics from Kingdom Hearts with its action gameplay and environment traversal.

Which one are you most excited to play?

New Final Fantasy XV Trailer Shows Female Cid, Combat, And Story

Square Enix showed a new trailer for Final Fantasy XV at the 2014 Jump Fiesta festival, showcasing lots of new details and gameplay.

In the trailer you can see some of the story setup related to government overthrow in the city of Insomnia, and we meet Final Fantasy's first female Cid, who goes by Cidney. We also see what appears to be a battle against a God of War III sized titan creature, and some inner-city exploration.

You can check out the trailer below which appeared at the Jump Fiesta Festival, an annual expo in Japan celebrating the Shōnen Jump magazine publication, which is home to many popular manga.

Along with the trailer, there was also a Q&A with director Hajime Tabata who answered a few questions about the game, but kept everything mostly ambiguous. You can find a full transcription of the panel on Kotaku. One of the biggest takeaways from Tabata is that the titan seen in the trailer is important to the game – too important to discuss in detail.
