You convinced me Ser, but why this is on 3DS and not on DS? I'm really questioning the reason to be of my 3DS, mine is running only great DS game on the crappy 3ds screen... and you?

Don't see the appeal myself. If I want an FF soundtrack, I'll listen to it. From some Let's Plays on YouTube it's not even some kind of story narrative like Parappa, just.. random minigames of songs.

My 'I Want This' meter just skyrocketed. I really wish it had been released for the DS and not the 3DS, though. Sad So far it's the only 3DS game I'm interested in, and I just can't justify buying the console at full price with only one possible song to enjoy. I have enough of a backlog as is.

Maybe I'll just buy the game now and get the console later... I wonder if Theatrhythm is at risk of going out of print before I buy it.

Well, nobody says you have to, but rhythm games are pretty rarely about narrative (Guitar Hero, Rock Band, everything from Konami), nor is there a law that says "everything developed with a Final Fantasy name has to have a story!" As a bit of fan-service, I'm happy they didn't try to shoehorn in more than a cursory story. The music speaks for itself.

Probably going to pick this up. Theatrhythm and Rhythm Thief have me way more excited for ryhthm games than I ever thought I'd be.

I am sorry to head about the loadtimes; since DS/3DS is cartridge based and not optical disk based in general I consider lack of loadtimes to be one of the great assets of the system.

Huh sounds fun. Ti be honest I never heard of this game. Too bad I do not have a Gameboy. Perhaps when I get one I will get this game with Chrono Trigger. Thanks Mr. Riley.

So true, I mean look at 13, the "cinematic masterpiece" Anime hyper (ba-dum-tss)
Probably the "best story ever told" in a FF game because it's incredible visuals left nothing to the imagination. Hell everything we imagined a FF game to look like was present in this game...

Sadly the same can't be said about it's gameplay :'(

in b-4-13 supporters come in and start tossing rocks Razz

In retrospect, 12 was one of my favorites but even I agree on it's story becoming non-existent past the halfway point :'(
