Watch: Boss battles in Eternal Sonata

By Spencer . June 28, 2007 . 3:48pm

Only a few weeks after Blue Dragon comes out Namco Bandai is going to release Eternal Sonata in North America. Combat in Eternal Sonata is kind of like Star Ocean, since you can freely run around the battle field and select strikes with the face buttons. As long as there is energy in the meter on the left hand side of the screen Allegreto can continue to dish out sword strikes and Beat can shoot arrows. It isn’t just button mashing there is some strategy to the system too. You do different attacks if you stand in well lit “light” areas and patches of shadow.

 

This video of one earlier boss battles should give you a good idea of what to expect and past the break there is a second video further into the game. Beware though! There are some spoilers in the second video.

    Wow, looks great. The boss music sounds good as well. I still can’t wait for the game.

    I can’t wait to sink my hands into this game either. Too bad the seller I ordered from (should’ve gone w/ play-asia, sigh..) sent me the Asian version by mistake, I know the game is still in Jpn but.. now I’ll need to go thru the trouble of returning it and getting another copy. I’ll skip the 2nd video for now..

    If only Microsoft could get more publishers to bring out RPG’s, then I think that would give them a better fighting chance. Instead, we are just bombarded with shooters and sports.
