USK, Germany's ratings board (think of it as the equivalent to the ESRB), may have let the cat out of the bag early. Resonance of Fate (aka End of Eternity), a critically acclaimed yet commercially unsuccessful title for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, looks to be coming to the PlayStation 4 and PC if a recent rating listing is to be believed:
The story of Resonance of Fate is a rather grim one (peppered with plenty of highly comedic moments). The world is dying, and humanity has constructed the giant tower Basel, the only place for them to live in peace and safety. But humanity, being the naive species that it is, has continued to abuse the world so much that even the tower itself is falling into disrepair. A group known as the Cardinal has exploited this situation for its own benefit, controlling the populace, with the poorest people living at the bottom of the tower, and richest living at the top. Your brave team of heroes this time around are a group of "Hunters", willing hired guns who take on jobs (sometimes of a morally dubious nature) for money. Vashyron, Zephyr, Leanne make up your standard anime archetypes - the older and wise leader, the young and rash teenage boy, and the bright female character.
Considering Sega's recent initiative to pull titles from their catalog and breathe new life into them with new releases on current platforms (Bayonetta, Vanquish, Valkyria Chronicles, Shenmue, etc.), this shouldn't come as a big surprise, but it's a very welcome one nonetheless. We'll keep you informed of any updates regarding the possibility of Resonance of Fate on PS4 and PC!
