Resonance of Fate is long, fashionable, utterly nuts

Though the opening premise and stereotypes aren't blindingly new, I'm digging the decision to skip the 16th century and move into a more industrial-age aesthetic. That opens the field for slightly less ridiculous character designs, and tri-Ace has recruited actual fashion artists to help tart up the cast with a wide variety of customizable clothing options. Better still, all the cutscenes are rendered in-engine, enhancing the drama with leopard-print jackets and t-shirts bearing incomprehensible Engrish slogans.

I love jrpgs, but one complaint I had about them is when you changed your clothing in the equipment screen, maybe only the weapon would reflect the change but never the clothing (during battles, cutscenes, etc.). So this is good news for me.

vhero5060d ago

and outside of battle look god damn terrible! I hope it plays well though as looks aint everything especially with an RPG.

Noctis Aftermath5059d ago (Edited 5059d ago )

it doesn't look bad, but at the same time it doesn't look very good.
i couldn't understand the video so i don't know what the story will be about but i hope the story is good.

Also, why was the color so dull? perhaps poor stream quality?

the gunplay battle system looks interesting, but.........we will see.


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

NecrumOddBoy935d 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.

Unknown_Gamer5794935d ago

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

ScoreBunnie1416d ago

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

Father__Merrin1416d ago

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

ScoreBunnie1415d 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.


Resonance of Fate 4K/HD Edition (PS4) Review | GamePitt

Rob Pitt writes: During the Xbox 360 and PS3 era, we had a lot of JRPGs which went above and beyond by delivering us tens, or even hundreds, of hours of engaging stories around some rather interesting mechanics. This generation we’ve had a few, but most publishers seem to think the RPG genre simply means ‘Large open world full of fluff and minor distractions’.

Thankfully, tri-Ace has spotted this gap in the current market and not only remastered Star Ocean: The Last Hope earlier this year, but they also fully remastered Resonance of Fate in full 4k on both the PS4 and PC.

Spend money on this! Not last remnant.

Movefasta19931758d ago

idk I feel like supporting both jrpgs might spawn sequels, better sequels since it's pretty random because I didn't expect to see remasters for these games. i'll pick up both.

rob-GP1758d ago

Yeah, I'll be picking up The Last Remnant as well - if we don't get a copy to review. I like these remasters as they're nice meaty JRPGs done right with the focus on the story and content over fluff.

I know footage of The Last Remnant looks a bit choppy in places but so did Star Ocean. It's just a shame that it wasn't a tri-Ace game as they seem to have gone all-out in remastering their engine with the various PC settings on the PS4.

bluefox7551758d ago

How is this game? I passed on it years ago, just didn't catch my eye, but I've been on a jrpg kick lately, so may check it out.

Lon3wolf1758d ago

There is a lot of depth to the systems it employs just not so great at explaining it all to you. Not your average JRPG, it's an acquired taste and personally I loved it on console when it first released and now bought the remaster on PC.

bluefox7551758d ago

Sounds interesting to say the least, no harm in giving it a shot.

gangsta_red1758d ago

This game is really good, but that learning curve is steep. Not to mention the gun upgrading design is terribly flawed.

But anyone that wants a change of pace from the usual JRPG type games really need to give this game a go. It's seriously on some ridiculous gun-kata, John Whoo type hype.
