Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy Curtain Call is marching towards North America [Update: and Europe!] later this year priced at $40, Square Enix confirmed today. The follow-up to the 2012 3DS rhythm game builds on the original by providing a total of 221 songs and more than 60 characters from the Final Fantasy series, and it introduces new modes including the option to prove your skills in two-player duels.
Curtain Call is already out in Japan, and as we saw at last year's Tokyo Game Show, fans can expect more of the same from the second 3DS game, with the key word being more. In terms of what you'll be tapping to in the expanded playlist, Curtain Call chucks in songs from newer FF entries like A Realm Reborn and Lightning Returns, but also plunders other areas the original did not, like the funky Advent Children version of "One Winged Angel."
In addition to the Versus Battle mode, Curtain Call introduces the Quest Medley mode from the iOS version of the original, allowing players to mix songs together along quests that are described as either short, medium, or long. As for the new roster, players can re-acquaint themselves with chibi versions of Yuna as she was in X-2, Barret from VII, and even obscure heroes like Benjamin from Mystic Quest.
