Resonance of Fate Learns Rock Riffs For North America

Tri-Ace’s multiplatform RPG, End of Resonance of Fate, is going international and Sega sent out a trailer for the Western version. Most of the footage is recycled, but the domestic presentation is quite different.

Both trailers open with a mysterious melody. Japan’s trailer follows up with an epic score while the North American movie has music that sounds like it was mixed by the Black Mages.

The soundtrack isn’t necessarily bad. Neither is the presentation. It’s just interesting how the same game feels different overseas. White Knight Chronicles, another Japanese RPG, went through a similar transition.

 

Hmm… are mainstream publishers like Sega and Sony Computer Entertainment America afraid their RPGs share too many common themes with other Japanese RPGs and are trying to make them, at least in ads, appear more Western?
