Exploring Fragile’s ruins with a flashlight in hand

By Spencer . November 24, 2007 . 2:00pm


In Fragile ~ Sayonara Tsuki no Haikyo ~ you take on the role of Seto, a boy living in a desolate world. Traces of human life are gone and all that remains are modern looking ruins. Seto searches to find out what happened with a flashlight in his hand. Players use the Wii remote to point the flashlight on the screen. Seto also carries a metal detector to scan for hidden items in the ground and a tree branch in his left hand. The stick is in most of the screenshots over at Famitsu so it must be a significant element in the game. It looks like the branch may be one of Seto's weapons, but I can't imagine it being much help against the demons lurking around in the post apocalyptic.


Here is another nifty bit of info, Tri-Crescendo, the team behind Eternal Sonata, is developing Fragile ~ Sayonara Tsuki no Haikyo ~ as their first Nintendo Wii title.

    This looks like a really fresh idea for an RPG. I’ve always been interested in photography of abandoned places and modern “ruins” urban exploration, so this game looks like something I could really get into.

  • Pedro Silva

    It’s not Tri-Crescendo who is actively developing it, it’s the Seven/Venus and Braves team, working with Tri-Crescendo… For all we know… their participation might be music-only, like the Tri-Ace games do (Valkyrie Profile, Star Ocean) or… music and battle system, like in Baten Kaitos.

    Battle system by them actually excites me more than the fact that they did Eternal Sonata, a game with “Tales of” clone overtones, trying to distinguish himself by being worse (taking the Tales system and making it turned based)

    I’m a tales fan, but what I enjoyed more about this team was the freshness of the Baten Kaitos systems.

    Looks good.

    Maybe the enemies in this world are vulnerable against ‘Gaia’ items like a tree branch.

  • sounds fantastic

  • Aoshi00

    I thoroughly enjoyed Eternal Sonata, this game could be another great Wii title.

  • I hope this features lots of atmosphere and exploration. Something like Ico for the Wii would be fantastic.
