While tri-Ace usually works with publishers such as Square Enix with the Star Ocean series and more, Siliconera learned from the developers that it will be self-publishing the recently announced Resonance of Fate 4K/HD Edition.
The original Resonance of Fate was published by Sega, who also published their PS Vita RPG Phantasy Star Nova back in 2014. According to a representative of tri-Ace, the company will publish the remaster in all regions.
It should be interesting to see if that means tri-Ace will get to publish some more of their older titles that are waiting for a port or remaster, such as Infinite Undiscovery which has been exclusive to the Xbox 360 since its release in 2008.
Here’s a look at some new screenshots for the 4K/HD remaster:
Set in the distant future when humankind nears extinction and is ruled by the ‘Basel’ perpetual motion machine – a massive environmental conservation device of man’s own making run amuck; Resonance of Fate weaves a tale of guns and emotional bonds during this end of days. The game’s three protagonists – Zephyr, Vashyron, and Leanne, work as mercenaries and, through their missions uncover the truth behind the ruling Cardinals and Basel.
Originally released in early 2010 on the PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms (and known as End of Eternity in Japan), Resonance of Fate received accolades for its ‘tri-attack’ battle system – a mix of real-time and turn-based controls; the focus on gun combat and gun customization; and its over-the-top cinematic hero actions of the main characters. Critics praised the gameplay and unique combat system that combines strategy with aerial gun battles and fast-paced thrills.
Resonance of Fate 4K/HD Edition will release globally on October 18, 2018 for PlayStation 4 and PC. It’ll be priced at $35 USD and EU €35. Those who pre-order the game on PS4 will get exclusive themes and avatar sets as a bonus.
