US fans will be pleased to learn that Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call will be hitting the North American 3DS sometime this year, according to developers Square Enix. The game launched in Japan just this week and is the sequel to popular 2012 title Theatrhythm Final Fantasy.

Curtain Call retains the original’s miniaturized character style, with 60 characters to choose from including newcomers from series like Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children, Final Fantasy Tactics and Final Fantasy Mystic Quest. The game features more than 200 tracks from titles spanning the entire Final Fantasy catalogue.

The sequel sports a Quest Medley mode to build and battle through your own Final Fantasy playlist, and a Versus Battle Mode for head-to-head action. Curtain Call also features a stat-boosting system to reward players for clearing songs with cards that bolster your character’s attributes.

The game will release in the US this year, priced at $39.99. There is no news on a European release at this stage but stay tuned for further information.
