The Latest Final Fantasy Music Game Is Totally Rad

This video contains hands-on impressions of Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call, the bizarrely-titled music game that Square Enix released for 3DS this week.

If you don’t have the time or energy to watch the video, here’s the gist of it: Curtain Call, a sequel to 2012’s Theatrhythm, adds more songs, characters, and other goodies to an already-solid rhythm game. The basics are still the same — it’s all just meatier. Curtain Call also brings with it a new mode called Quest Medleys in which you can traverse a map and fight boss battles, playing through random songs as you try not to die. That’s pretty much the best part of the game, which is rad and totally worth playing if you’re into Final Fantasy.

Random Encounters is a weekly column dedicated to all things JRPG.


  • It’s good even if your not into FF. I haven’t really dug a Final Fantasy since X, but as a music buff, this game (well, the demo that I’ve played) is brilliant. Looking forward to picking this up during the week, along with Hyrule Warriors 🙂
