The limited-edition unit is due alongside Curtain Call at launch in Japan, and that's now penned in for April 24 - the portable is priced 23,000 yen (around $227) and comes with the game pre-installed. There's no news on the encore entry coming to the West, let alone the 3DS XL, but Square Enix did lock in a US trademark before it even announced the game.
As we saw at the Tokyo Game Show, Curtain Call isn't overhauling the first game's winning formula, save a new two-player versus mode. Instead, expect plenty of new characters and music, including some from recent FF entries like Lightning Returns and A Realm Reborn.
