Resonance of Fate Now Available On PSN

It has been a while since the release of Resonance of Fate back in 2010, but Sega has finally released a digital PSN version of the Tri-Ace RPG on the US PSN for $19.99. Previously only the 360 version was available digitally.

Resonance of Fate stood out from other JRPGs on console for its battle system with an emphasis on gunplay and its steampunk world.  While the game is a one-shot at the moment, Sega fans can find references and cameos to the game in the form of costumes in Project Diva 2nd and Phantasy Star Portable 2 as well as playable characters in the 3DS crossover Project X Zone.  Phantasy Star Nova will also feature Resonance of Fate costumes and weapon options alongside other Tri-Ace cameos for Star Ocean and Valkyrie Profile.

On the official blog post, Sega is asking people to comment if they played the game.  The digital release may be there to gauge interest in Tri-Ace’s new title Phantasy Star Nova, or perhaps even a sequel to Resonance of Fate.  In any case, the game receiving a second chance is definitely a good sign for fans of Sega of Japan’s titles. The game’s initial release was overshadowed by the release of FF XIII, even though now many seem to agree that Resonance of Fate was actually the better game. If anyone hasn’t played the game yet, now may be a good time to give it a try.
