In the latest round of Theatrhythm Final Bar Line information, we get a look at the Museum feature, which will let you the CollectCards you’ve obtained through playing the game, as well as a Live Info display, which shrinks the play area into a smaller space so that additional information can be displayed.
Scheduled to release on February 16, 2023, the “rhythm action” game will launch on both PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
Check out the latest below:
|Season Pass 1:||30|
|Season Pass 2:||30|
|Season Pass 3:||30|
In the base game available at launch, the game will come packed with 385 songs from across the Final Fantasy series. Add 27 more if you elect to purchase the Digital Deluxe edition, which also includes the Season Pass 1 DLC for another 30 songs from other popular Square Enix franchises, bringing the total to 442.
DLC available as part of three Season Passes will further open up the library to more songs from many other Square Enix RPG franchises, including the SaGa series, Mana series, NieR series, and one-off titles like LIVE A LIVE and Octopath Traveler. Should you purchase all of them as part of the season pass, or all of them as part of the Premium Digital Deluxe Edition, this will bring the grand total of songs to 502.
You can check out the full song list, and when the game-specific Season Pass packs are scheduled to release.
|Premium D. Deluxe:||$99.99**|
|Season Pass 1:||$14.99|
|Season Pass 2:||$14.99|
|Season Pass 3:||$14.99|
*All prices before tax
**For those planning to collect all songs: the Premium Digital Deluxe edition ($99.99) is cheaper than purchasing the Digital Deluxe Edition and Season Passes individually. ($124.96)
In the Museum, you can listen to music, view your collection, and check your records. CollectaCards can be viewed in your Collection, and are cards emblazoned with various Final Fantasy series characters. These cards can be found in one of four rarities, in ascending order: Normal, Rare, Premium, and Special. These cards will also bestow bonuses to character stats.
In the Theater, you can watch the movies that play during EMS (Event Music Stages) that you have unlocked. The Music Player collects all of the music tracks you’ve obtained, and will let you create up to three playlists. The Nintendo Switch version will let you listen to the music in this player even when the screen is turned off.
The museum will also house Records for your gameplay data, including total time played, songs played, and perfect scores for tracks, amongst other information. The Feats section functions as a trophy system, rewarding you for achieving certain milestones or difficult challenges.
A new feature will let you toggle “live info” from the settings. This will show the high score for the current song, party information, and real time controller input. For players that want to see more information or for streaming purposes, this feature is recommended.
The high score, button input, and timing judgement displays can all be toggled on or off independently.
Characters can be obtained by unlocking their associated title in Series Quests and you can also obtain enemy characters by clearing the final stage for each title.
