All Articles: Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call
It’s a 3DS bonanza this week in the Nintendo Download.
Square Enix has released Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call, the sequel to their fan favorite Final Fantasy rhythm game. Bigger in every way, Curtain Call includes “221 songs and more than 60 characters” to tap away the hours. Another big sequel available this week is Majesco’s Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appetit. The fifth helping of Cooking Mama includes more than 60 recipes. And finally, EA Sports has confirmed that FIFA 15 will be available to download through the 3DS eShop on Tuesday, September 23.
Of course, the real big news this week is that the Super Smash Bros. For 3DS demo will be available to all beginning tomorrow. Just in case you were on the fence, Nintendo’s got you covered.
More information on all of these titles (including a few more and a trio of new downloadable games for the Wii U) can be found after the break. (more…)
The spotlight is on oddities from Japan in this week’s new release report. Chief among them is Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call, a sequel to the popular Final Fantasy-based rhythm game for the 3DS. The first printing comes with a special soundtrack CD, so you’ve ever felt the urge to tap Final Fantasy themes with a stylus, now’s the time.
And speaking of sequels to handheld favorites, Majesco is back with a new Cooking Mama game for the 3DS, Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appetit!. Also available this week is Fairy Fencer F, a turn-based RPG for the PS3 from NIS America, and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution (PC, PS3, Xbox 360), the latest game to star the whiskered ninja.
Finally this week, Majesco will release an “Ultimate Edition” of Air Conflicts: Vietnam for the PS4.
Square Enix has got quite an impressive array of titles in development including Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts III, and Rise of the Tomb Raider. However, all of those games are currently on track for a release in 2015, so they won’t be appearing at next weekend’s PAX Prime convention.
Instead, the publisher will put out playable demos of overhead puzzle platformer Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, Kingdom Hearts compilation Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMix, and free-to-play team fighter Nosgoth. Square Enix will also show off some of their handheld offerings including the upcoming Hitman: Sniper, musical sequel Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call, and a pair of currently available Dragon Quest games for mobile devices (Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen and Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King).
The 2014 PAX Prime convention will be held from August 29 to September 1. I hope you’ve already got your tickets, because it is sold out. More information on everything Square Enix plans to bring to the expo can be found after the break. (more…)
Evolve continues to add to its list of pre-release accolades as it took home five 2014 Gamescom Awards including the coveted “Best of Gamescom Award.” Turtle Rock’s 4v1 shooter also earned the awards for “Best PC Game,” “Best Console Game (Sony PlayStation),” “Best Console Game (Microsoft Xbox),” and “Best Online Multiplayer Game.”
Super Smash Bros. 4 and LittleBigPlanet 3 were the only other games to win multiple awards. The 3DS version of Nintendo’s fighter was selected by the judges as “Best Mobile Game” while both versions were picked by attendees as “Most Wanted.” Meanwhile, LittleBigPlanet 3 was awarded “Best Social / Casual / Online Game” and “Best Family Game.”
The full list of winners can be found after the break. (more…)
Square Enix has announced that Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call will launch on the Nintendo 3DS on September 16. But that’s not all: they’ve also announced that there will be a Collector’s Edition, which will be limited to 5,000 copies and will only be available through the Square Enix online store. You can pre-order both right now – the former for $39.99, and the latter for $69.99.
The Collector’s Edition, pictured above, will include a pouch for your 3DS, “The Best of Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call” CD with 20 tracks, “Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call – Remix Selections” CD with five tracks, and five CollectaCards. I’m not sure exactly what makes this $30 more expensive, but I will most likely end up pre-ordering this once I let my guard down.
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call will be out on September 16 for the Nintendo 3DS.
