Tri-Crescendo Shows the Foundations of Fragile


A few days ago the folks behind the Baten Kaitos and Eternal Sonata series and published by good ol’ Namco Bandai, Tri-Crescendo, gave a Japanese gaming magazine a sneak peak at their latest creation. Fragile: Farewell Ruins of the Moon (roughly translated) is set in a post-apocalyptic world where darkness and destruction surround you. You’ll be taking on the role of Seto, a young boy who’s desperately searching for any sign of human life and the lost “heroine” who is somehow involved with the whole thing.

You’ll be equipped with a handy flashlight that will not only illuminate the encroaching darkness but can help reveal clues and signs of life. Shed some light on a vacant wall and you may find pictures or stories of those who have passed through the area. It will also double as a metal detector when you’re searching for other valuable items.

You’ll also be hearing some strange noises from the Wii remote’s speaker as you traverse the desolate Earth; it will emit the voices of ghosts both friendly and fiendish. Don’t think Seto’s only means of defense is a metal detecting, EVP recording flashlight though. He’ll be decked out with… a stick. How a stick will help fight of ghosts, I’m not sure, but the magazine did hint at a few other weapons to find along the way.

This sounds a lot like Escape from Bug Island to me; you’re stuck in a dark world void of human existence readily prepared with a flashlight, a stick, and a few other weapons. Swap out the bugs for a few ghouls and maybe some rogue animals, and you’ve got yourself a twin! Let’s just hope the combat is a bit more fluid and you don’t have to play through the game twice to beat it once.

Here’s an old video of the game when it was first announced
