Things are about to get a little weird in the land of Final Fantasy, an achievement for a classic JRPG series that has previously been spun off into multiple fighting games and minigame collections. Next up: rhythm games!

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is a thing, and it's coming to Nintendo 3DS at some unspecified point after today. There's no telling if a North American release is even planned at this point, as the game was first revealed in the latest issue of Japanese gaming and manga mag V Jump (via andriasang). It's very definitely a rhythm game though, described in the reveal as "Theater Rhythm Action," with players tapping the screen based on prompts that pop up.

The Final Fantasy twist, of course, is that the music you're tapping to plays over a series of scenes set in dungeons and towns. There are battles as well, shown from a side-view perspective just like the turn-based encounters in the series' earlier releases. Familiar characters pop up, but the game renders them all in a cutesy "chibi" art style (seen in the above image from Kingdom Hearts Mobile). Some kind of story involving bringing light back to a crystal serves to move the game's events along.

I know what you're thinking, because I'm thinking it too. This sounds completely bizarre. You think there'll be chocobos?
