Ivalice Gets the Spotlight in Latest Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call Trailer

Continuing with their episodic trailers for Theatrythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call, this latest episode puts the spotlight on two games which took place in the Ivalice continuity: Final Fantasy Tactics and Final Fantasy XII.

Besides sharing the same setting, both games were a departure form the series’ norm. Final Fantasy Tactics was a tactical turn-based RPG, if not one of the best and true benchmarks for the genre even to this day. Final Fantasy XII too was a departure from the norm, offering a seamless 3D world with real time 3D battles akin to MMOs and Western RPGs. Both games tried to achieve new things and succeeded remarkably, Final Fantasy XII in particular was the most technically ambitious RPG of its time and is still worth playing (how about a HD port? Square-Enix?).

The trailer below is a musical showcase of these games. Oh, and did you know Vagrant Story took place in the Ivalice universe?

    Final Fantasy XII is my favorite in the series. The setting of Ivalice is the quintessential fantasy setting and the music by Hitoshi Sakimoto is brilliant.
