If you’re a fan of jRPGs, you’re probably already keeping a close eye on the progress of the upcoming kickstarter funded game, Edge of Eternity .
But if this one has managed to evade your attention, now is a great time to learn more!
French studio, Midgar Studios has been hard at work to create a turn-based, Active Time Battle jRPG-inspired game set in a fantastical 3D-world with a large, open world to explore, lots of customizable weapons, and a story driven narrative dictated, in part, by the choices you decide to make.
The studio has released the latest "work in progress" video as of a few weeks ago, and although it’s unlisted, many backers have been good enough to share the excitement with the rest of us!

Pre-Alpha 2 gameplay
The game is still a ways off with no release date as of yet. However, it is now entering Alpha phases for early backers to participate in, so we expect to see more content begin to leak and flow.
It’s a shame that major studios seem to be abandoning this genre, but it’s very exciting to see other smaller studios stepping up to fill the void. With any luck, this should turn out to be an exciting adventure that will help reintroduce us all to the next gen potential of an older gameplay style fully realized! Edge of Eternity is slated to release for PS4, XboxOne, and Steam.
So, what do you think?
