LuigiIsThePope If you trust the Nintendo Direct voice-over guy, Theatrhythm is pronounced “theatre rhythm”.
I guess the real question is if the portmanteau is supposed to be “theatre rhythm” or “theatrical rhythm.”
Not that portmanteaus, like acronyms like .gif, need to preserve the pronunciation rules of their constituent words. But, you know. When they don’t they don’t but when they do they do.
I think I like the sound of “theatre rhythm” but I also think I like the connotations put forward by “theatrical rhythm” more… what a conundrum
