Square Enix to continue Theatrhythm series with music from other franchises
With Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call having allowed Square Enix to perfect their rhythm-action formula, they will now look to other franchises to continue their venture.
That’s according to producer Ichiro Hazama, who explained that they will no longer draw from Final Fantasy’s lineage and shared his hope that this won’t signal the end of the Theatrhythm series itself.
The publisher is broadly adored for the sweeping scores that have accompanied their output over the years, whether that be Dragon Quest, Kingdom Hearts, or Chrono Trigger.
“From my personal view, I really like what we’ve created here – the Theatrhythm series and the type of game. And yes, even though this is the end of Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy, I really don’t want to bring the Theatrhythm series as a whole to an end,” Hazama explained to Planet3DS.
“Obviously I don’t have anything we can announce at the moment but we really would like to move out and go into other titles. So you can certainly expect something from Theatrhythm like that in the future.”
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call will release exclusively for Nintendo 3DS across North America on September 16th, and Europe on September 19th.
