Infinite Space is an RPG for the DS that is all about exploring the vast expanses of space, building your own ship, and finding and promoting your very own crew. Think of it sort of like Skies of Arcadia on the DS, with a more anime-styled feel and with even deeper ship and crew options.
The ship battles are also worth noting – you won’t just be fighting ship V ship, one at a time, the entire way through – you’ll actually be building entire fleets, and engaging in massive battles with a slew of ships on each side firing. The sheer amount of customization is massive, and for an RPG on the DS, we’re quite sure you’ll be impressed.
Infinite Space, developed by Nudemaker, is also the third title to release from Platinum Games, who have previously worked on MadWorld and Bayonetta. So, if history is any indication, Infinite Space is already on the high quality runway – and those long road trips will never be boring again.
While you’re waiting for the game to arrive, you can also check out a ton of info in our new Infinite Space Commander’s Guide! The tips and details here are crucial for any new Zero-G Dog, and I highly recommend checking it out. Speaking of things to check out, we’ve also just put live our launch trailer for the game – I’ve included it below!
Resonance of Fate
You may have also heard of another legendary RPG Team known as Tri-Ace. Today also marks the launch of their latest game, Resonance of Fate, here in the US – and it’s one of the most entertaining and exciting console RPG’s I’ve played in a long time.
Resonance is out on both the XBOX 360 and the PS3, and besides boasting a fantastic voice cast for the English track, we’ve also included the Japanese audio for those of you who’d prefer to listen to it in its original state. Win-win? We think so.
Resonance is a very cinematic RPG with a unique and entirely rewarding battle system, this time built on guns and not your generic swords and magic. It took me a few hours to really get into, but since then I’ve been exploring the depth of how the combat flows and how different items change battles entirely, and it’s quite a blast. I also love the dialogue, and the playful way the author and director chose to move the story forward.
Oh, and check these out: As of today, we can reveal one very special piece of merchandise: A Resonance of Fate branded iPod Touch!
Stay tuned to the blogs for info on how to win of these in the near future!
(Author’s note: I seriously wish I could steal one.)
2x the RPG goodness, 2x the swag
With both games coming out at once, we realize many people are probably wondering which of the two to pick up first. We’d like to go ahead and answer that question with a simple: Both of them. If you’re an RPG / Anime fan, these are two titles I’ll vouch for firsthand. (They’re that good.)
To celebrate, let’s get some swag going out! This week on Free Stuff Friday we’ve got a ton of merch to give away, and right here on the blogs today we’re going to give away even more! Drop us a comment here letting us know which part of either game you’re most interested in, and you might score yourself a random bit of RPG swag to enjoy.
We hope you guys enjoy both games – from exploring the reaches of space to the gear-like confines of Basel, these two RPG’s have it all - including soft serve Ice Cream.
