Square Enix has rewarded a diligent campaign of fingers-crossing and wish-casting on the part of English-speaking Final Fantasy fans with the announcement of an international release for its  3DS-exclusive reminisce-'em-up, Theatrhythm Final Fantasy. The game will be coming to the US and PAL territories in Summer of this year, the publisher revealed, with pages already cropping up on Facebook and the web to mark the announcement.

We've been keeping an eye on Theatrhythm since its Japanese announcement last year: as you'll remember from our TGS 2011 Theatrhythm Final Fantasy hands-on preview, we're far from immune to the game's charms and are glad to see Square Enix bringing the game to international audiences. The company's said the game will launch with over 70 playable music tracks, as well as movie clips and unlockable extras from the series' history.

No word yet on whether the added DLC tracks available to Japanese players will make the transition – but if the recent, ongoing stream of Final Fantasy XIII-2 DLC is anything to go on, Square Enix certainly wouldn't be averse to the possibility.

    This game dertainly looks interesting and fun. From the looks I assume it plays like rhythm thief or elite beat agents.

    Thank you SO much for posting that comment. I was really worried that some crybaby wouldn't complain about a game that has nothing to do with this article. Again, thank you so much! I can sleep at night now.

    And still no word on a Type-0 localization. *sigh*
