Although it's still a little ways off, Resonance of Fate is one of our most anticipated RPGs of the generation. The style and atmosphere is most appealing and after doing the preview , we became very, very excited.
And now, more information has come from this week's GamesCom event, and what's most compelling is the numbers located by PS3Attitude : towards the end of that article, it says that Resonance of Fate contains over 150 hours of gameplay if the dedicated gamer wishes to do absolutely everything. Now, many will simply scoff at this and say such a number includes everything from side-quests to nabbing insanely difficult Trophies. In other words, 150 hours may not matter to the average gamer…but then again, since when do casual gamers play RPGs in the first place? Aren't we talking about a fairly hardcore group, here? Besides, we further learn that even the "standard" play-through will take anywhere between 50 and 80 hours, and that's pretty darn impressive. It's not exactly surprising, though, as tri-Ace is well-known for making some lengthy RPG titles. And if this game turns out as good as we hope it will, we have no problem at all with these length estimates. In fact, we love 'em.
