Resonance of Fate will be the first time tri-Ace will use the services of a publisher other then Square Enix (including Enix prior the merger of course). Here tri-Ace will team with Sega, who in the RPG world are best known for the Phantasy Star series, and more recently Valkyria Chronicles. End of Eternity will also be the first multi-console title developed by tri-Ace, where it will be released for both the PS3 & Xbox 360.
Resonance of Fate is set in the distant future, where the Earth has undergone an environmental disaster. The environment has been contaminated by poisonous gases where humankind's inability to adapt has almost resulted in its extinction. The survivors of this disaster built an underground purifying device at Basel, cleansing the air and the surrounding area. Civilization began to reform around Basel itself, building a city around the tower. The upper classes live in luxury at the top of Basel while the lower classes inhabit the slums around the base and stem of the tower. All is well at Basel for years after until one day, when the purifier begins to malfunction.
