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'
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.
