Sega pushed End of Eternity’s release to January 2010. So, how is the international version, Resonance of Fate, holding up?
The official Resonance of Fate blog says the overseas version is moving forward and shared Resonance of Fate’s title screen.
The post also has a list of sales points not covered in magazines, but the programmer believes gamers will appreciate.
- While the graphics are being optimized for HDTVs, text in Resonance of Fate will be legible on SDTVs.
- Background music is fully orchestrated and in 5.1 surround sound. The recording was done in a concert hall. During battles the music changes to reflect the flow of battle.
- You can install Resonance of Fate on a PS3 or Xbox 360. The install is optional and load times have been optimized.
- There is no disc swapping. Since the cutscenes has to be in real time to support the costume system Sega was able to fit more content on a single disc.
- Game Over? Not quite. Resonance of Fate has a battle retry option which lets you restart any encounter. The restart feature allowed the developers to put players in a pinch with tricky situations.
- You can suspend the game and save anywhere, even in battles. The quick save feature was added so working adults with limited time can enjoy the game.
- Resonance of Fate has a “new game+” like feature where you keep all of your items for a second play through.
