You may have noticed the sudden influx on Square Enix Store exclusive collector’s editions (see: Lightning Returns and Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD). It’s both a blessing and a curse, as it does mean that if you are a fan of their franchises, there are more neat new sets for you to indulge in. On the other hand, it also means you have to deal with Digital River’s atrocious shipping service. To their credit, Theatrhythm: Curtain Call arrived early and without hassle, though the box was a little crushed in the corner. You can’t win them all, I guess.
At any rate, let’s find out what’s in this thing, shall we?
I spread out all of the contents, including that of the Limited Edition that was contained inside (which to my knowledge is something of a first print edition normal retail purchasers will get).
Let’s start with that black pouch thing, which as it turns out is actually a zip up case for your 3DS.
It’s nothing too lavish on the inside, but certainly better than being naked. The 3DS, not you. You knew what I meant. Sicko.
Nothing to see on the back.
Moving on to the soundtrack now…
Pretty solid track lineup. Most of the titles featured in the game have a song represented and while they’re not the cream of the crop as far as selections, there’s some good stuff here.
Here’s what you can look forward to if you haven’t picked up your copy of the game yet.
Bundled with the game is a five song mini-soundtrack as it were, bringing the grand total of on disc songs packaged with this set to twenty five.
These cards are a neat idea. They look just like the foil ones you can get in-game. It’s a shame there aren’t more.
Now for the finale: the size comparison.
For the most part, it’s a decent set. Including a soundtrack for a music game is a given, though more tracks would’ve been nice. The cards were also a nice touch. 3DS pouch cases are a bit overdone at this point, as nearly every CE for the console has one and the game would’ve been better served with some form of book containing sheet music or some developer/composer commentary. Either way, the set is currently sold out at its original $69.99 price point, so you’ll have to rely on secondary sources if you want to pick one up.
Thanks for joining me in yet another unboxing!
