Japan's Jump magazine has revealed yet another Final Fantasy spin-off in the works, this time one that actually sounds interesting. Theatrhythm has a typically stupid Square Enix name, but it sounds like a cool idea, and it'll be coming to the 3DS. 

The so-called "Theater Rhythm Game" portrays retro side-view battle screens with chibi-esque characters duking it out. The flow of battle is determined not by commands, however, but by tapping the touchscreen in time with the music. The music is taken from a range of past Final Fantasy titles, so the nostalgic will be quite happy. 

If they pick up all the classic tunes, this could be a pretty cool game. I'm actually surprised nobody thought of it before, what with the FF series having some astounding music.

Samus, Link, and others made into Theatrhythm characters

I adore Theatrhythm's doll-like recreations of iconic Final Fantasy characters. So does pixiv artist Mafen if his portfolio is any indication. Check out our gallery below for Samus, Link, Fire Emblem's Lyndis, and The Space A...more

E3: Everyone is saying Theatrhythm wrong

Theatrythm Final Fantasy screens look super pretty

Try typing "Theatrythm" ten times in quick succession and see how many times you spell it right. I'm willing to bet not many. Bloody Square Enix and its ludicrous game names.  Anyway, here are some fresh screens for the ...more

Theatrythm Final Fantasy teaser site brings the music

As sick as I am of Final Fantasy spin-offs, I must confess that Square Enix has got me this time. I love Final Fantasy music, and I love excuses to turn on my 3DS, so a 3DS rhythm game featuring FF music is pretty much perfec...more

Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd coming west

Making multiplayer music in Fantasia: Music Evolved

Harmonix revealed a multiplayer mode for Fantasia: Music Evolved at GDC last week alongside some new songs and levels. I jumped in front of a Kinect sensor to try out the new mode, and it wasn't long before I was flapping my arms to the beat.  Can't you hear that boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass?    more
