Gamasutra Interview: Tri-Ace on Resonance of Fate's Battles, Non-Girly Characters

Takayuki Suguro is director of Resonance of Fate, known as End of Eternity in Japan, and previously worked on Square Enix games such as the acclaimed Vagrant Story. Now at Tri-Ace, he's leading the Sega-published HD gun battle RPG, which seems to blend John Woo-style cinematic gunplay with a quasi-traditional JRPG interface.

Gamasutra spoke with Suguro, along with Sega producer Matsuhiro Shimano about the upcoming game's complex battle system, character creation (and avoiding the JRPG femininity stereotype), and the risks of making an HD RPG in a difficult market - not to mention the curious penchant Japanese game companies have for RPGs with words like "final," "end," or "last" in the title.

8 Underrated JRPG Games That You Can Play in 2021

From Xfire: "The golden era of JRPGs has long since passed, with more traditional RPGs having planted themselves firmly under the spotlight for the better part of the past two decades. However, while there's not been as many JRPG games released in recent years, there's still enough of them being released that results in certain titles slipping under the proverbial radar."

The only game I don’t own and never heard of is Fell Seal , I’ll look into it

NecrumOddBoy1089d ago

Highly recommended if you like FF Tactics. I believe it was Colin Moriarty's (Last Stand Media) GOTY last year.

Most of these are the weak story jrpgs which is why its an easy pass for myself. I don't have love to turn based or tactics battles systems but I enjoy the other aspects of jrpgs. The most important aspect to me is the story. I have put up with playing horrible battle systems and mini games that should never exist to enjoy the lengthy and amazing stories these games have. For some reason around the PS3 days they seemed to think, who cares about story just worry about battle system and crafting. So if those are the things you're looking for then this list is for you.

You must not have been playing RPGs for almost 30 years.

I’ve been trying to get back into playing JRPGs lately. With the recent release of Persona 5 Strikers, I finally decided to start playing Royal. I don’t know if I can make the time for just any JRPG though, and Persona games are always an experience and a half.

very memorable game for me last generation. nothing will ever beat the ps360wii era for me

ScoreBunnie1570d ago

I just want a remaster of Infinite Undiscovery on Xbox Scarlett and PS5.

Father__Merrin1570d ago

Will never ever happen it sold like pants. But was an excellent jrpg imo

ScoreBunnie1570d ago

Indeed it was, it was better game that Resonance and Remnant imo. Square has struggled to make a AAA game of that caliber since. The IP needs to be sold, then again I can say that of any square franchise that isn't Romance Saga, Final Fantasy, or Dragon Quest.
