Remember the dark days of the PS3/Xbox 360/Wii console generation? A good number of JRPGs came out for these machines, skipping PC entirely and making us feel like second rate citizens. That all started to change with the arrival of Dark Souls and Valkyria Chronicles on PC, as it made Japanese publishers look our way with renewed interest in the platform, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Well, looks like yet another JRPG is coming our way after spending years in the darkness of console exclusivity, as tri-Ace revealed today that Resonance of Fate will be released for PC and PlayStation 4 next month, on October 18th.
JRPG fans eager to enjoy Resonance of Fate on PC (or PlayStation 4) will have to set aside US$35. No pre-order campaigns seem to be in effect though, so if you (yes, you, dear reader) plan to buy the game and have a somewhat forgetful mind (like mine), the best way would be to stock up on Steam/PSN credit beforehand.
Set in the distant future when humankind nears extinction and is ruled by the ‘Basel’ perpetual motion machine – a massive environmental conservation device of man’s own making run amuck; Resonance of Fate weaves a tale of guns and emotional bonds during this end of days. The game’s three protagonists – Zephyr, Vashyron, and Leanne, work as mercenaries and, through their missions uncover the truth behind the ruling Cardinals and Basel.
The Steam release will feature trading cards, and as the trailer’s title implies, this re-release will let players enjoy Resonance of Fate‘s unique battle system in full 4k/60fps glory.
