After looking at more preview videos I’ve come to the conclusion we have not given Fragile: Sayonara Tsuki no Haikyo (Fragile: Farewell, Ruins of the Moon) enough attention. This clip has Seto, the protagonist, scanning a crumbling world with a flashlight in hand. You actually point with the Wii remote to shine light on objects. Clever, but it’s the atmosphere of the trailer that makes Fragile notable. Tri-Crescendo couldn’t give the game the same graphical fidelity as Eternal Sonata, but the style and gentle background music makes up for it with a sense of isolation and loneliness.
