Famitsu.com has updated with a ton of new screenshots showing off the newly announced characters for Project X Zone. If you missed the announcement it has been confirmed that Resonance of Fate‘s Leanne and Zephyr would be appearing as a pair in the upcoming 3DS game. Click here if you never heard of Project X Zone.
To see all the screenshots released, hit the jump. Enjoy!
Seems that SEGA isn’t going to let the Resonance of Fate franchise die out just yet. In the latest Famitsu magazine (scans above) they confirm that there will be a Resonance of Fate team made up by Leanne and Zephyr. They also revealed other characters from Capcom and Namco-Bandai that will be joining the full game.
- Alisa and Soma from God Eater franchise (Namco-Bandai)
- Lei-Lei (aka Hsien-Ko) from the Darkstalkers franchise (Capcom)
- Frank West from Dead Rising franchise (Capcom)
Seems that the roster will just keep growing and growing at this rate. But do you think that the Resonance of Fate franchise deserves to go first instead of a classic franchise like Phantasy Star?
You thought that the Resonance of Fate game was the last you’d hear of the franchise? Doesn’t seem this way, the game is still having releases, at least a ‘comic’ version of it. Famitsu will have the comic called ‘End of Eternity: The Secret Hours”. End of Eternity is the Japanese name of the game.
The comic is set to have a orginal story, will feature Leanne, Zephyr and Vashyron investigating a mysterious and private military firm. This will set up promotion for the ‘budget’ version of the game, which is set to release in Japan this January.
As for a sequel, it is unknown at this point, but when the game was first announced, SEGA wanted to make it into a franchise. But then again, they said the same thing about Shenmue…
Yes, End of Eternity (Western title Resonance of Fate) has went budget priced in Japan. Not only that, it is one of the first games to get the new ‘platinum collection’ packaging from Microsoft.
So what did the old packaging look like? Check out the old Platinum Collection box art for Bayonetta. Yeah, it has improved for the better. End of Eternity reprint is coming out in Japan on December the 2nd.
So it is time to announce the winner for the Resonance of Fate giveaway, the winner is… Joseph Carter. Funny thing, he is one of the few people to actually get the comparison right. If you didn’t know, there were 4 things wrong with the photo.
- Sonic Team logo in the left, top corner. (you did not have to say it was a Sonic Team logo. Just that there was something)
- Leanne ‘s flower is missing in the doctored shot.
- Leanne’s necklace is missing in the doctored shot.
- One of Zephyr’s buttons is missing from his coat.
The items will be shipped out tomorrow (this includes the Valkyria Chronicles ones as well). Talking about tomorrow, we will also have a BIG prize to give away. Details posted tomorrow.

I’m not shocked that Yakuza 3 didn’t make it into the Top 20 for the month of March. I’m a bit shocked that neither version of Resonance of Fate made it though.
I know, SEGA didn’t really advertise either and they released them in a ‘big month’ , but didn’t even do 100,000 units? Spin it how you will, but SEGA made a pretty big deal about Resonance of Fate when it was announced.
SEGA has released some new Resonance of Fate themes in Japan, first up are the PS3 ones. Sadly, they are not dynamic themes, just premium. Meaning it has a static wallpaper and custom icons. There are 2 versions, one called A-Type that features 1 out of the 5 characters from the game and its own icons that have a sort of broken glass look. B-Type is all Reanbell and that theme is shown above.
Hit the jump to see the rest of the themes, including the Xbox 360 premium themes.
What is a better way of celebrating Valentines Day tomorrow than pretending that your video game girlfriend sent you a Valentines Day card? Nothing… is better… so print it out and hang it on your wall. This is what the card says:
“Hey, have you heard of Valentines Day? Well, if you don’t know, it’s okay. Here are some chocolatez. Why? I wonder why!”
Now you can also pretend you know Japanese. To top the evening off below we have a series of Reanbell angle shots that show her underwear. You know, for when the evening gets romantic. Hit the jump for that.
