Tiny Cartridge 3DS

New Theathrythm's box, 3DS XL bundle preorder ⊟

Not a bad cover for Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call! It’s the same design as what’s on the special edition 3DSL XL for Japan, except with more cover. That hardware bundle, by the way, is now available to preorder from Play-Asia for $413.99. Importing a system is really expensive! Still, I know some of you were considering taking the plunge with this kit.

Finally, the PS1 Final Fantasy games on PlayStation Network (playable on PS Vita, PSP, and presumably) are available for what you might have thought they cost anyway. As part of a sale starting tomorrow in North America, you can download Final Fantasy V, IX, and Origins for $5.99 each, or $5.39 on Plus.
Tons of other portable-friendly FFs are also available, including both Dissidias, whose names I’m not going to type out in full because no, the Final Fantasy IV Complete Collection, and the remade Final Fantasy III. Final Fantasy Tactics is a crazy five bucks! It’s a good time to fill up your Final Fantasy collection!

Theatrhythm is $17.99 at Amazon ⊟

I mentioned this deal on Twitter earlier in the week (you’re following us there, right?) when it was still on back-order, but Amazon has Theatrhythm Final Fantasy back in its warehouses for you to buy. It’s worth picking up as something to play during the upcoming holiday breaks — even if there’s a sequel (not announced for the West yet) coming up.

Oh, and these figures are presumably something coming out one day? The photos are from Square Enix’s Hidemi Matsuzuka.

How forward of you, Cloud!
Some of you might have noticed that after a month of disappointing everyone, eShop was back on point this week with four new releases: Toki Tori (GBC) for Virtual Console, mobile port SpeedX 3D, hippo murdering sim Outdoors Unleashed: Africa 3D, and Escape the Virus: Shoot ‘Em Up for DSiWare.
Plus a free demo for Theatrhythm Final Fantasy! The trial was long overdue, but to make up for it, the demo has unlimited plays, which is a first for the eShop!

Final Fantasy 25th anniversary t-shirts. If Theatrhythm isn’t commemorative enough for you, you can pick up one of these items from the importer of your choice (NCSX/HLJ/Amiami) along with tons of other items.

Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy releases today, and while I’m sure many of you have already got your preordered copies on the way, what about your Theatrhythm coffee mug?
If you act quick, you can get one cheap at Amazon for $14.99. Various import shops also have them in stock.
And for those wondering about our thoughts on it — the game, not the mug, which I’m sure is wonderful at delivering drinks to your mouth — our own JC Fletcher played through Theatrhythm and posted his review here.

E3 trailer for Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy, which releases in a month, so get in your preorder for that free stylus.

There was very little in the way of the news about 3DS games today — what with today’s conferences being devoted to Microsoft, Sony, Ubisoft, and EA — and I don’t expect there will be too many tomorrow either, since Nintendo’s event will focus on Wii U. We might hear about a bigger 3DS if we’re all on our best behavior, though.

On Wednesday, however, Nintendo will host a software showcase that’s all about 3DS. Wow, the company has so much news to deliver, it needs three E3 presentations!

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy's U.S. and Japanese covers compared. Square Enix thankfully didn't feel the need to drop Kirby-style scowls on all these cute faces, but it did throw in some enemies to indicate that the game's not all rainbow musical notes and singing Chocobos.

Theatrhythm hitting the U.S. this summer

Yes, that Nintendo 3DS Final Fantasy rhythm game from Square Enix and Indies Zero is actually coming to North America, with its silly name intact even! Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is headed to Europe this summer, too.

I know there are quite a few people who scoff at the idea of paying $40 for a simple looking rhythm title (along with paid DLC, if you want more than the 70+ included songs), but all the import impressions I’ve heard from Final Fantasy fans say the game is quality.

Jump past the break for more screens/art!
