Demon's Souls will likely last you a good long time, but there are more very promising RPGs on the way, fellow role-playing fans. One of them is Sega's End of Eternity , which North American gamers will know as Resonance of Fate .
Developed by RPG veteran studio Tri-Ace, this is a title that emphasizes firearms over swords and technology over fantastical magic. The combat is closer to "The Matrix" than it is to old-school Final Fantasy games, but you still have that very clear anime flair and Japanese-style storytelling. Therefore, it appears to be a very interesting blend or hybrid of sorts (the combat is a real-time/turn-based hybrid, if we understand it correctly), and you're probably wondering about a release date. Well, the countdown is over and Famitsu further cemented the Japanese launch date : January 28. Now, considering that we're talking about Sega and not Square-Enix, it's tough to say when the game might arrive on US shores, but we're hoping it's only a matter of months. It'll be interesting, though, because it could very well end up butting heads with Final Fantasy XIII , which is something Sega does not want.
