Nintendo 3DS owners looking forward to playing a new Final Fantasy game on their consoles? Well, it looks like you’re in for a treat, but probably not on you’re expecting. Square Enix has just announced today that it will be releasing a new Final Fantasy game for the Nintendo 3DS called Theatrhythm (short for theater rhythm action).
Judging by the name of the game, I’m sure you can tell that it’s not going to be just like the rest of the Final Fantasy games in the franchise. According to Square Enix, it will be RPG-like, except that when it comes to battles, they are played out on the touch screen by tapping in time with the music. You can expect the touchscreen on your 3DS to be seasoned when you’re done with this game. No word on when Theatrhythm will hit the stores, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it’s this year. Stay tuned for more details.
