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.
Postcards! Mugs! Camera cases! A damn stuffed Chocobo with a cake!
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.
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!
Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy’s Japanese boxart. Very nice!
I’m certain Square Enix will be fighting an uphill battle trying to convince gamers to pay full price on this instead of waiting for the inevitable iOS port — not knocking the quality/content of the title, just the easy adaptability of its concept/touchscreen controls for iPhones.
That said, videos for the Japanese demo are popping up (hey, Nintendo of America, where are our eShop demos?!), and it looks tight: here’s the best demonstration video I’ve seen so far. Theatrhythm ships in Japan on February 16. No announcement for a U.S. release yet!
Three minutes of Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy, the upcoming 3DS title that takes you through the Final Fantasy series in various rhythm game formats.
Siliconera notes you’ll be able to battle an adorable Sephiroth and other villains in the game’s Chaos Tower, a boss rush that pits you against “bosses like… the Black Knights from Final Fantasy II with a special ‘dark score’.”
Japan: February 16. Everywhere else: No date announced.
Three new Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy clips take you through a FFVIII ballroom dance, a FFXIII trek through various areas, and a party of heroes pulled from several different games battling a Fire elemental.
Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy wallpapers, featuring really cute chocobos and other characters. More sizes are available on the site: click the button on the top right (marked “new”) and then the text on the top right.
So I really liked my demo of Theatrhythm at TGS. I think the simple rhythm-based gameplay with even the merest suggestion of RPG elements is going to be right up my alley, in a way that “normal” Final Fantasy games aren’t.
In fact, I haven’t looked forward to a Final Fantasy game this much since Crystal Bearers, a game I’m sure Square Enix would rather I didn’t mention. I liked Crystal Bearers! Deal with it!
