Just announced – quite literally – a few seconds ago, SEGA of America and SEGA of Europe have revealed that Resonance of Fate, known as End of Eternity in Japan, will be making its way to the west in Spring 2010!
The game’s developers, Tri-Ace, are a name you should be familiar with if you know anything about your JRPGs. This is actually the first time in history they’ve fully partnered up with a publisher other than Enix/Square-Enix, and their past roster of games – like Star Ocean and Valkyrie Profile – are a very good benchmark for the quality of games their team pumps out.
What’s the story behind Resonance of Fate? Curious fans will have to wait just a bit longer (or read Famitsu) to get into the real meat of it – but until then, we’ll let you entertain your imagination with a few screenshots to couple with the announcement.
The game will be releasing for both Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, so all you next-gen console owners are set. You can also check out the full set of initial screenshots here on our Flickr page.
How do you guys think the game looks so far? Are you fans of any past Tri-Ace titles?

We’ve got some great stuff up for grabs in our Free Stuff Friday giveaway tomorrow (May 15th, 2009)! Everyone is eligible to win any prize this week. I’ve got all the details on our prizes below, and if you need a starter (or a refresher) about how to enter the contest via Twitter, that information is at the bottom of the post.
On the Block This Week
Item 1: Happy Tree Friends “Do It Yourself” shirt
This is a yellow American Apparel shirt. The label says XL, but it appears best suited for a large child or small adult.

This is a mug/stein with the Viking and SEGA logos on it. Press the tail of the lid at the edge of the handle to open the top.

How it Works
Make Sure We’re Following You on Twitter
If you are currently following us on Twitter, please be sure that we are following you as well. You can do this by making sure that SEGA is in your “followers” list, or by going to DoesFollow and typing SEGA in the first blank, your Twitter username in the second, and pressing the “check” button. You can reverse this to be sure that you are following us. If you are following us, but we’re not following you, please send a message to @SEGA and we will follow you. This is important, because only people we follow can send us direct messages (DMs), and DMs are the only way to enter the giveaways.
How to Send Direct Messages on Twitter
There are a few ways to send us a Direct Message on Twitter. The easiest way is to go to our Twitter page and select “message” under the “Actions” heading in the side bar. If you do not see “message”, this means that we are not following you. Please send a message to @sega to let us know, and we will follow you. When you click “message” you will be taken to a window where you can type a message and press send.
You may also select the “direct messages” tab from your Twitter homepage, and select SEGA from the drop-down menu at the top of the page. Again, if you don’t see our name there, it’s probably because we’re not following you. Let us know, and we’ll follow you.
There are also many Twitter clients that you can use instead of using the website. These include TweetDeck, Twitteriffic, Tweetie, and Twhirl. Each of these programs works differently, so you’ll want to figure out how to send a direct message on the program you use. If you want to send us a test message, we’ll let you know if we received it or not.
