Resonance of Fate, Sega and tri-Ace‘s upcoming collaboration RPG, has been confirmed for a simultaneous release in both North America and Europe in 2010. Sega says the simultaneous release is so European consumers don’t feel like the game is old if it finally hit their shores a year later.
“America and Europe is the same release,” confirms SEGA Europe localisation producer Jun Yoshino. “Usually the European version comes a year after, letâ€™s say the Japanese release. During the year, a lot of people are going to like, well this is old news now. Weâ€™re going to be losing a lot of interest if there is such a long time as a year. Weâ€™ve scheduled it in so we can get it out as quick as possible.”
Yoshino also mentioned that the team’s â€œworking really hardâ€ to shorten the gap between the Japanese release and the North American and European releases. The Japanese release is scheduled for later this year.
