Remember that teaser site related to Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy? Well, we finally know what that’s about. Square released Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy on iOS today for free. The game is available as a free-to-play game. You start off with 13 characters to choose from and a total of two songs to start with. Just two. Extra songs cost $0.99, additional characters cost $1.99 and bundles of songs from specific games cost $2.99. The songs in those bundles can’t be purchased individually, though. Buying all of this will end up costing you about $148 US. The prices for this will differ outside of North America, of course. Because Square Enix fans haven’t been pissed off enough already.

There are a couple new additions to this game, though. This iOS version includes a feature called “Quest Melody”, which takes random ‘field’ and ‘battle’ tracks to pair up as well as the ability to create your own compositions and share them via Twitter. So you can look forward to seeing endless Kingdom Hearts and Neon Genesis Evangelion renditions in the near future.

In all seriousness, I’m probably one of the few people in the Oprainfall staff that’s kind of okay with this. Being an amateur musician myself, I’m very intrigued by the composition mode. Besides, the micro-transaction method could’ve been much worse.

Kyle has been studying music at college for about three years now. He's played the piano since he was 6 years old and has been recently been learning how to write music. He has followed the Operation Rainfall movement on Facebook since it started and was happy to volunteer for the website. Just don't mention Earthbound or the Mother franchise around him.




  • TL;DR : Expect lameness from SE teaser sites.

  • While I like the idea of the composition mode, doesn’t it take away from the “3DS exclusivity” of the original release? Much better than any iOS release, IMO.

    isn’t it hard to play when your hands is in front of you? 

    • I have an iPad, so I don’t really have that problem.

    The game crashes nonstop for me. It says it is compatible with iPod 4th gen, but I guess not…
