Square Enix's curious Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call commercial

If I told you Square Enix just released a minute-long TV commercial for Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call that features only 14 seconds of gameplay footage, would you be shocked?

Oh, and those 14 seconds of gameplay footage don't show up until the end of said ad, with the first 46 seconds consisting of famous scenes and music pulled from every Final Fantasy title that's seen the light of day so far, including a few spin-offs.

Not that I'm complaining. I actually really like the spot--although I can't help but wonder how effective it'll be at prompting sales of the 3DS game it's supposed to promote.

What it REALLY makes me want to do is throw every Final Fantasy in a pile and just roll around in it.
It's silly how much the Bridge Crossing Theme at the beginning of the commercials gives me goosebumps. said...

Ha ha! Well, I certainly approve of that response, finchiekins :) And, yes, the Bridge Crossing Theme is and always has been completely brilliant, in my humble opinion.
