Theatrhythm is nearly in gamers’ eager hands but the game received what could easily be the highest accolade and endorsement. Final Fantasy original scorer and composer, Nobuo Uematsu, recently had a chance to sit down with the game and get some hands on gameplay going on. The quote below is what he had to say on Twitter following his run through.
I played Theatrhythm Final Fantasy for the first time today. Not too shabby! As I remembered various things from the past 20 years, I was reduced to tears. FF music fans should definitely play it. Won’t you cry with me?
The game has already taken out top honours in gaming Japanese publication, Famitsu, so it seemed fitting that the man, who has many of his song creations in the game, should give the game his blessing.
For those lucky Otakus in Japan, the game hits tomorrow.
