Theatrhythm: Curtain Call brings another gorgeous 3DS XL to Japan


Oh, to live in Japan and have enough yen to buy all the 3DS XLs. Square Enix adds to the handheld's library of super-sized stunners with a black and gold number for Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy: Curtain Call, the follow-up to 2012's Final Fantasy rhythm game mash-up.

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.
