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.
