End of Eternity’s Countup Clock Spoiled

Sega had a change of plans. End of Eternity aka Resonance of Fate in the West won’t appear anywhere until next year.

 

Tri-Ace’s first project with Sega was originally slated for “winter 2009” in Japan. Their count up clock is already at 2010. This week’s issue of Famitsu cuts to the chase and reveals End of Eternity’s release date, January 28, 2010. At least it won’t have to compete with Final Fantasy XIII anymore.

 

Resonance of Fate had a rough spring 2010 release window in North America. No word if Sega will push the US release back or stick with the same timeline to get a jump over Square Enix.

    If my new IP rpg was due in the same quarter as FFXIII and I had a choice of before, during or after the release FFXIII, I’d go with “before”.
    That said it’s a pity they couldn’t get some clear air to release in, I really like the look of EoE.

      I agree. Earlier than FFXIII would have been optimal, but January or even Feb. is better than going head to head with FFXIII. Perhaps, Sega is hoping people finish Final Fantasy XIII by then and trade in to purchase End of Eterntiy.

    It wouldn’t be the first time that a new RPG IP would be released alongside a FF game’s release (Wild Arms and Shadow Hearts come to mind, and they both have cult followings and personally need a new iteration). I could see the reasoning behind delaying it, though, but I would agree that it should be released before rather than after FFXIII (everyone will be playing FFXIII when this game is released).

    Well I would not worry about it too much if there is one thing Japanese gamers find more time for is RPG’s. So while many Japanese gamers will be playing FF13 I would not be surprised to see this game push 100K in its opening week. Just because your playing one game does not mean you can’t buy another to play after.

    So that means that GUST will have no other choice but to delay Ar Tonelico III in Japan *:C

    Screw you Sega

    NO!, ar tonelico wont go back on its word!! (i hope) the sooner the release the faster it comes here.
    And well, at least is not as bad as what happened with DQ9 (like a push until 5 months later of original release date)

    well makes sense since FFXIII comes out that month. I feel bad for Tales of Graces which will most likely be killed in sales since it’s releasing 1 week before FFXIII.

    That’s kind of good timing for me I guess, by that time I would most likely be done w/ FF XIII (both Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey took me about a month). If it is before, I would rather put off the purchase entirely because I know I wouldn’t have time to finish it before XIII comes out. I hope they would announce the US release date.. I should be patient and not import…
