An additional 90 songs will be available as downloadable content, including songs from other game series such as NieR and SaGa. The game’s Digital Deluxe edition will also include 27 exclusive songs, including “Melodies of Life” from Final Fantasy IX.

The 385 included songs span 46 games in the Final Fantasy series, spanning FFIFFXV, plus “remakes, spin-offs and various different soundtrack CDs.” With that many games represented comes a huge roster of characters to recruit: 104 in total! Finally, Theatrhythm Final Bar Line will include a music player to listen to any of the music you have unlocked, and a theatre mode to view any of the movies whenever you want.
