Square Enix has launched a new patch for their rhythm RPG, Theatrhythm Final Bar Line, remedying numerous bugs and enhancing several gameplay features. This update also applies to both PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.

The latest patch notes for Theatrhythm Final Bar Line are quoted below:

Appearance of “Today’s Top Hits” in Music Stages
Fixed an issue wherein “Today’s Top Hits” would not appear if game data was saved with the console’s date set in the future until that date had passed.

Occurrence of special days
Fixed an issue wherein special days would not occur if game data was saved with the console’s date set in the future until that date had passed.

Achievement of 999 stat feats
Fixed an issue wherein feats for reaching a stat value of 999 would not be achieved when the stat was raised by obtaining a CollectaCard.

“Connecting” message in the main menu
Fixed an issue wherein a “Connecting” message would appear for an extended time in the main menu when the network connection is unstable or unavailable.

Number of memory CollectaCards displayed in received ProfiCards (PlayStation®4 version)
Fixed an issue wherein received ProfiCards would display an incorrect number under “CollectaCards” – “Memory.”
ProfiCards received after the fix will show the correct number of CollectaCards.

Results in Multi Battles with three or more players when a player disconnects during play
Fixed an issue wherein results would display incorrectly (as described below) when a player disconnected during a Multi Battle with three or more players.

  1. If a player disconnected in the first battle, they would receive an “ALL CRITICAL” mark.
  2. If a player disconnected in a subsequent battle, their displayed score would be from the previously played song.

BGM timing adjustment

“BGM Timing” settings have been expanded to ±100 from their previous limits of ±15.
*If the timing is set beyond ±10, we recommend setting the Trigger SFX volume to 0-1.

When playing in Pair or Simple Style, the current Style now displays above the “Play” button in the setup window before beginning a song.

Additionally, the official Twitter account confirmed that six more songs from the NieR franchise will be added on April 26, 2023:

  • Fleeting Words / Outsider

There are currently no plans for Theatrhythm Final Bar Line to get Final Fantasy XVI or Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker music.

In an interview with the Japanese outlet Dengeki, the title’s Director and Producer discussed a myriad of topics, such as how this game is meant to be the Theatrhythm series’ finale.

Theatrhythm Final Bar Line is now available worldwide on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
