Theatrhythm producer interested in continuing the series
Square Enix has created three Theatrhythm games. We’ve seen two based on Final Fantasy, and the Japanese-only entry for Dragon Quest. If recent comments from Square Enix’s Ichiro Hazama are anything to go by, the series won’t be stopping there.
Hazama commented about the future of Theatrhythm in this month’s issue of Nintendo Dream. He spoke about wanting to keep the franchise going in his New Year’s greeting, in which he mentioned:
“This is Hazama from Square Enix. Last year at this place, I said ‘we’ll keep continuing Theatrhythm from hereafter too!’. Well then, I wonder how about next year[‘s continuity]. Personally, I still want to continue, and everyday I have been devising various plans. I’m full with a feeling to do something to make it happen, so I’ll be glad if you can wait with anticipation. With that being said, please keep supporting [the series] as usual from hereafter too!”
I’d personally be up for a Nier-only Theatrhythm, but that’s probably unlikely to happen. Something like Theatrhythm Kingdom Hearts might be more realistic!
