Theatrhythm - Dissida - Final Fantasy

Hello dear people of TheCol- LOL oh I forgot, we're not there anymore so GOTCHA! Well then once more!

Hello dear people all over the world!

We are here to talk about the new game. Our dear Square Enix "plagiarized" once more and yes we are doing "that mistake" here also one more time, advertising SE games in an indirect manner! So brace yourselves for the ride, we have much to talk about here!

As you might have know Square Enix, formerly Square Soft is a gaming company stripped of it's former pride as a developer because of the famous words "We know what we did wrong and we apologize for our mistakes. Also we want to try harder in the future."

Their newest installment in the series of senseless spinoffs is called Theatrhythm, something we have never seen before!
The game follows the "Dissidia" Story elements aka the Gods Cosmos and Chaos, this time the space between those two entities’ realms is called Rhythm which presumingly gives birth to crystals that control music.
No wonder chaos is always so freakin pissed at every soul!
But let's not forget that this company is known for surprises in terms of spin-offs, and that's why we're here today!
How about we begin this introduction with

» a little fairytale«

Now they made a series of cellphone/keychain straps, they are colorful small and "cute" or at least they should be. Instead of all that they are hideous, cheap and make fun of the characters we once loved. There are versions for Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, Dissidia, certain enemies and so on.

Inspiration for these abominations is a cellphone game, Kingdom Hearts mobile. The design of the characters is exactly the same and now they "recycle" those figures once more, this time in

Final Fantasy Dissida Theatrhythm

The game is basically what you would call Dance Dance Revolution for poor people. It'll be available for the 3DS only and cost around 39-$49 and you will be able to tap in patterns with your stylus at the bottom screen. The upper one will show you what to do.
As we have already seen it here:

You will practically tab or scratch your display at the bottom to death, diagonal line, tap, tap, tap-hold and so on.
What you don’t have to do is change lines, even if the fourth character in the party is at the bottom of the screen, you don’t need to move there with your hand.
Just staying in one place is more than enough.

Project Diva, Taiko no Tatsujin, Guitar Hero and Rockband require the player to press different button pattern and not just constantly tapping one place.
BUT this might make Theatrhythm much easier for newcomers of the genre. It could be a step in the right direction "to introduce more japanese rhythm games in the future".
Since we all know Square Enix by now it is also very clear and worth a prediction that this will not be a one of a kind title for them.

Theatrhythm probably won’t introduce a completely gameplay or story mechanic, because the “tapping” pattern might make you too busy to do anything else. But they will include old scenes of previous Final Fantasy titles to play (laaaaazy~).
The sound effects that occur while playing the game somehow add a touch to the battle tracks but in my opinion they disturb most of the calmer soundtrack pieces.

There you are able to see the game and the tapping in all it’s glory!

already confirmed songs are:
"Final Fantasy Theme"
"Battle Scene" from Final Fantasy (Battle)
"Rebel Army Theme" from Final Fantasy II
"Battle on the Big Bridge" from Final Fantasy V (Battle)
"Blinded By Light" from Final Fantasy XIII (Battle)
"Decisive Battle" from Final Fantasy VI (Battle)
"Awakening" from Final Fantasy XI (Battle)
"One-Winged Angel" from Final Fantasy VII
"Tina" from Final Fantasy VI (Field)
"Waltz for the Moon" from Final Fantasy VIII (Event)
"To Zanarkand" from Final Fantasy X
"Suteki da ne" from Final Fantasy X (Event)
"Sunleth Waterscape" from Final Fantasy XIII (Field)

Oh and rumors say that Noctis Lucis Caleum might be in the game as well, wouldn’t that be neat to see him in there like all the other Final Fantasy main characters?
