3DS rhythm game sequel due out April 24 in Japan.

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call

Square Enix released new video and screenshots of Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call, showing newly confirmed playable characters Machina and Rem, who join the rhythm game from Final Fantasy Type-0.

Curtain Call, like its prequel, brings back Field, Battle, and Event Music Sequences. New to Field Music Sequences are airship stages.

New enemies joining the sequel inlude Golbez, Koutei, Zeromus, Gigantuar, Guuve, Goobbue, Sahagin, King Behemoth, Braska’s Final Aeon, Bomb King, Reno, and Magitek Armor. There’s also a chubby chocobo who will give you a small item if you encounter him on your quest.

Also in the screenshots, you’ll see Versus Battle mode, through which you can compete against other players or the computer for the highest score in one-versus-one Battle Music Stages. If your HP reaches zero, you will not die, but your score will decrease. When playing against a computer controlled opponent. you will obtain “Bronze,” “Silver,” or “Gold” ranks. Before playing with other players in local internet multiplayer, you can brush up your skills playing against the computer.

Also, by hitting consecutive inputs without missing, you will fill up the “EX Burst Gauge.” When it reaches the maximum, you will be able to direct an “EX Burst Art” at your opponent. There are nine types of EX Burst Arts you can perform.

Like Versus Battle, another new mode added to Curtain Call is “Quest Medley.” This actually comes from the iOS version of the original game. In this mode, you do quests on a “Chaos Map” and aim to subdue the final boss. You’ll find short, medium, and long quests to complete, as well as received quests you’ll get via StreetPass.

In Museum mode, you can view your records and listen to the music you obtained, as well as view movies from the game and look at your card collection. You will be able to store your cards in a binder, and through it you can access the character viewer.

View the new screenshots at the gallery. Watch the footage below. Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call is due out for 3DS on April 24 in Japan.

    Looking forward to this game’s release to the West. I can’t wait to get my hands on it!

    I’m also looking forward to seeing the track list (including the DLC list), once it releases in JPN.

  • RyoonZ

    Of all Type-0 characters they picked Rem and Machina…

    • Anime10121

      Whats wrong with them? I was under the impression that they were the two “main” characters of Type 0 anyway…

      • Auragar

        They are afaik (which isn’t much BECAUSE I CAN’T PLAY THE GAME!!!!!!)

        • Anime10121

          I shares all yo pain :(

          I will forever hold out hope for a Vita port or an HD remaster though!

          • Auragar

            My guess is that there will be some sort of new version and they are waiting for it to be farther in development which with how they handle business is probably still a year or more away. I don’t know if it will be Vita, 3DS, PS3, PS4, Wii U, but it is probably coming. It is like Bravely Default. Or they might just hate us and never want to give us the game because they think it won’t sell well enough (which it might not, seeing as they want huge megaton sells). I mean there is a mobile prequel story thing and we aren’t even getting that, at least not yet (not that I would really want).

              tabata said that if the prequel gets a localization they would need to bring Type-0 too, so you better pray that we get it. Although, maybe th 3rd party group from sony are working on it O_O

              • Auragar

                When did he say that?

                • MrFinalgamer

                  “With Agito coming out — Agito coming out is a certainty for North America and Europe — the subsidiaries’ opinion was that releasing Agito without having access to Type-0 would not be the best idea.” okay, maybe it was not him, but it was mentioned!

                  full interview: *beware that there’s small spoilers in the interview*

                  • Auragar

                    Agito is for sure some to here. Mmn… ok. Releasing it without access to Type-0 would not the the best idea… yah. That doesn’t say what you said… but who knows.

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      this sure is better then a complete no like SEGA with Valkyria Chronicles 3 (still sad about that one…)

                    • Auragar

                      I suppose so.

  • Zackasaur

    Please just confirm this for the west…

  • LastBoss

    I want this xl version baddd!

  • Auragar

    Watch we’ll get this, but still not Type-0 they love to screw with the US fanbase don’t they.

    • MrFinalgamer

      funny, isn’t that the only FF game (not counting international versions) to not get localized since…FF V?

      • Auragar

        Dunno. o.o

  • Locksus

    Though not a Final Fantasy game, they should include at least a couple tracks from Chrono Trigger. That game has a killer soundtrack
