Resonance Of Fate Demo Lands Later This Month
The RPG blitz will be in full effect next year and if you're a fan of the genre, you probably know the titles in question: Final Fantasy XIII, White Knight Chronicles, Star Ocean: The Last Hope International, etc.
But don't forget about Resonance of Fate, Tri-Ace's unique-looking role-playing adventure that features a somewhat modernized take on the standard RPG format. It's a futuristic presentation, complete with massive Matrix-like gun battles rather than epic sword-and-staff encounters, and it's definitely worth your attention. As usual, US gamers are going to have to wait longer for the game but if you've got a Japanese online account for either the PS3 or Xbox 360, you can get your first glimpse of the action in just a few weeks. According to Just Push Start, a playable demo will be on the Japanese PSN and XBL services starting December 22; it will feature a Newcomer Mode that will allow you to get a firm handle on the combat mechanic. If you complete the demo multiple times, you will receive extra costumes for the character you use. Also, remember that if you speak Japanese, don't get confused: this title is known as End of Eternity in Japan, so you won't see Resonance of Fate.
Anyway, this is one demo I'll definitely want to see, simply because the idea of a Star Ocean type of battle, only with guns, does sound appealing. And of course, it does have that patented Japanese flair, too.
