A minute for Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy
Well, a minute to write about it at least. In many hours with the game, I have earned 40K of Rhythmia, got six characters maxed out at level 99, and just listened to who knows how many Final Fantasy songs (especially Somnus). The game is definitely amazing.
Beyond that though, it has reminded me that, hey! I know I haven’t played an entry since FFIX, but wow, I used to really love Final Fantasy!
Not even a year ago I was sick and tired of hearing FF remixes, orchestrations, arrangements, or OSTs or anything. It felt so overdone. It must have been my general weariness with Final Fantasy itself that seeped into my disdain for the music. Either way, I have now listened to a ton of FF music, and am pining for the good old days when I truly, wholeheartedly anticipated a new Final Fantasy title.
Theatrhythm has perfectly captured me in a fit of nostalgia, and I want more. Theatrhythm: Chrono Trigger? A specific title like Theatrhythm: FFVII? THEATRHYTHM: MARIO RPG!?!? Or, how about forget the nostalgia, and make a completely brand new RPG based on the mechanics of Theatrhythm?
I’m not sure what Square-Enix should do next, now that they have re-entangled me in Final Fantasy, RPGs, and amazing RPG soundtracks once again, but my mind is now boiling over with ideas…
