Sadly, after that point, I never got to play another one like it on the DS or 3DS.
So, when I first heard of the original Theater… wait no, theatr… rhyme…uhhh… I’ll just call it “TFF”, for short. I thought, “boy, that’s a really dumb name!” and “Final Fantasy music and rhythm game in one!? Sign me up!”
However, when it finally released, I couldn't help but feel a bit disappointed by the meager selection of songs and a progress system that felt like a boring grind.
With the release of Curtain Call, not only did they address all the concerns I had with the original, they nearly managed to fully realize the concept in such a way that I can’t help but feel that this is one game that may never be removed from my 3DS.
