Japanese arcade chain Round 1 have unveiled that they are bringing Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: All-Star Carnival to western arcades, though considering the lack of attention that western arcades tend to get in comparison to Japanese ones, many may have found it difficult to understand the reasoning beyond such a decision.

A new trailer was also released, featuring “Blinded by Light” from Final Fantasy XIII:

Japanese arcade-goers can groove to Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: All-Star Carnival when it arrives on September 27th, westerners can expect the game sometime in October.

    Handheld/Console/PC when?

    Seriously this game would be fun to have if it weren't stuck in an arcade format type of game (Same goes for Dissidia Arcade), not that anything is wrong with arcades for the new generation. I might test it out since there is a Round 1 within an hour of where I live at.

    Too bad there aren't any arcades I'm aware of within at least 5 hours of me.

    This version actually looks moderately difficult, unlike the 3DS version I sat down for an afternoon and evening and full chained everything.

    I haven't spotted anyone in a Western arcade in about a decade.

    The business model the arcades in the West is not the same. Most of the new arcade cabinets are expensive computers, HD-TVs, and parts that need maintenance. It's hard for a owner to turn a profit now. Gross revenues from Street Fighter's 200,000 arcade cabinets where hitting $2.3 billion by 1995.

    If there are no new games there is no incentive for people to be in there...

    Most of the new generation of arcade gamers don't own cars. Most of the arcades are far and in-between. Most people just play online now anyway. If you want to make a cabinet, or have an arcade like experience you can always get a stick and mod it.
