Resonance Of Fate Set To Launch One Week After FFXIII
Maybe you were planning on playing both Final Fantasy XIII and Resonance of Fate and you figured it wouldn't be a problem. After all, there just has to be a significant gap between the two launch dates here in North America, right?
Wrong. Role-playing fans already have hurting wallets due to the likes of White Knight Chronicles and Star Ocean: The Last Hope International in February, and next up, Final Fantasy XIII releases on March 9. Then there's Sega's Resonance of Fate, the modernized sci-fi action/RPG that features massive gun battles rather than epic sword fights. According to Joystiq, this anticipated RPG will be on US store shelves on March 16...exactly one week after FFXIII. So this means that if you're a little short on cash or time (or both), you may have to choose between the two role-playing titles. The good news is that despite the fact the games fall into the same genre, they're still two very different experiences. Furthermore, there should be a playable demo of Sega's effort on the Japanese PlayStation Store, so at least you can check it out before making your decision. We kinda like the idea of a firearm-focused RPG, although we can't be assured of its quality until we actually sit down and play it.
Well, at least you won't have to shell out again until the end of April, when Square-Enix comes at you again with another RPG, Nier. If you can find the time, though, it's gotta feel good to be a fan of this category of games right about now.
