All Theatrhythm Controls List for PlayStation and Switch

A quick guide to refresh yourself on the controls in Theatrhythm Final Bar Line.

It's possible you might forget your options and not want to replay the tutorial.

Complete Theatrhythm Final Bar Line Controls List

The following article lists all the possible inputs for Theatrhythm Final Bar Line. Due to how generous the game is with regard to controls, there is no option to rebind anything. The option would be useless given how much freedom is given to you. 

Default PlayStation Controls

  • Touch Triggers and Hold Triggers: Any buttons on the controller except the touch pad work. This means R1, R2, L1, L2, triangle, circle, square, X, and all of the d-pad directions
  • Slide Triggers: Either left or right analog stick activate Slide Triggers. For Dual-Slide Triggers, both analog sticks are used at the same time. 

Deafult Nintendo Switch Controls 

  • Touch Triggers and Hold Triggers: Every button on the Nintendo Switch activates these triggers. That means B, A, X, Y, L, ZL, R, ZR and any of the directional buttons. 
  • Slide Triggers: Either analog sticks will activate a Slide Trigger. Dual-Slide Triggers require both analog sticks at the same time. 

Field Music Stages

Field music stages change up the standard Hold Triggers. They often wind up and down in simple slopes or more complex patterns. On either PlayStation or Nintendo Switch, these Hold Triggers simply require sliding the analog stick in the desired direction while holding whichever button you pressed. You do not need to follow the incline exactly. Always hold straight up or down on the stick.  

Those are all the controls you need to play Theatrhythm Final Bar Line on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. For more tips, head over to our Theatrhythm Final Bar Line page
