Now everyone can play back their memories of FINAL FANTASY in an endlessly expansive app: THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY!

THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY, the first music game in the FINAL FANTASY series, has been augmented with more songs and new playable characters to make it easier to dive into and play than ever before! Now it makes its debut as an iOS app that allows for communication with users from around the world in an unlimited adventure!

With Quest Medleys, every time that you play, its a new adventure! New enjoyment to be found in each game!
The iOS version of THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY adds the Quest Medley mode, where you can play through songs youve purchased in a rhythmical gauntlet! Each quest is a set made up of a single FMS and a single BMS, and each time that you play, you will find yourself facing different songs, different levels of difficulties, and different rewards for completionenjoy the thrill of a music game where the sense of adventure never fades! Being able to play on your iOS device by touching anywhere on the screen gives you more freedom as a player, as you operate the game with ease.

Music Stages in the iOS Version
FMS (Field Music Stage)
Slide across the screen in undulating waves that rise and fall in time to the slower-paced songs in these stages.
BMS (Battle Music Stage)
Flick and tap to the furious beat to hit the Triggers flowing before each character in these fast-paced songs.

Leveling up your character hinges on clearing tough songs! What else could you expect from a FINAL FANTASY music game?
Each time that you play through a song, your characters will gain experience. This app makes it easier than ever to enjoy developing your characters, as you simply level them up and the abilities gained by doing so are automatically equipped to your characters to be triggered during the music stages. In addition to the three regular scores of differing levelsthe Basic, Expert, and Ultimate scoresyoull gain a further three Illusive Scores for each song: arrangements of the regular scores with similarly varying levels of difficulty. Collect the shards of these Illusive Scores by clearing Quest Medleys and open up new adventures. Whether you are a novice or an experienced veteran, youll be able to find a way to play that fits your level!

Use Twitter to tell the world about the scores you create yourself and share them with players everywhere!
Players themselves can create their own original scores by trying their hand at the Compose Scores mode! Upload your scores onto the server, or download the scores made by other players around the worldit is the players themselves who make the challenges of this game beyond limit. When you link the app up to your Twitter account, you can Tweet not only about the results of your play but also announce the uploading of your original scores to the server. And who knowsyou might even find some scores made by the developers and the creators among the original scores uploaded each day!

"Now everyone can play back their memories of FINAL FANTASY in an endlessly expansive app."
Would this be referring to our memories of when Square/Enix produced and released really good RPGs? It's like they're conceding the fact that their best days are behind them.

First, they live in the past.
Second, the price their games like crazy. (You might say this is because they have "blind" fans willing to pay for anything)
Third, their new games are social/freemium junk.
Glad to see I'm not the only one critical of Square Enix business practices and the quality of their games.

But yeah fanboys will buy everything and vigorously defend "their" company and "their" games and bash anyone even trying to imply that maybe everything isn't as good as they make it out to be. When they get screwed over they happily ask for the next crappy title with ludicrous IAP.

What are you talking about? It's the norm to bash SE and it has been for years. It's actually more refreshing to see someone NOT foaming at the mouth with hatred for them.

There's Final Fantasy Brigade and also the next Final Fantasy XIII will have a good bit of gameplay linked to social networking sites.

I just spent $12 worth of IAP on demon's score iap sale, and it definitely felt like a good decision than throwing money in for Theatrhythm.

3DS version had 70 songs already plus all the characters and priced at 40 bucks.
You cant even get all the characters for 40 bucks with this :/

Not this again... The iTouch 4 is 2 years old now, that's centuries in hardware land. Blame apple for the stupid decision of only putting 256mb worth of RAM in them if anything.
