I've never played a game quite like tri-Crescendo's Fragile Dreams for Wii. While, mechanically, it's a fairly standard action-adventure game – something like one of the PS2 Silent Hills with experience points – everything about the game contributes to a distinctive mood. Fragile Dreams ...

With a holiday release scheduled, tri-Crecendo's Fragile: Farewell Ruins of the Moon has received its final boxart. Our E3 impression of the game left us wanting to know more -- a lot more. Considering the post-apocalyptic RPG, from the team that brought us Eternal Sonata, had no expense spared, w...

The tri-Crescendo-developed Namco Bandai RPG, Fragile, will eventually make its way to Europe, GameSpot reports. Sometime in early 2010, Europeans will be able to get their own taste of this post-apocalyptic title following Seto, who is believed to be the last living human being. It's kind of like...

[Update: we had attributed some of these remarks to the wrong person. Our apologies to Mr. Berry.] Last September, XSEED Games announced its intent to publish Vanillaware's Wii side-scroller Muramasa: The Demon Blade in North America, to the delight of hardcore action gamers and people who like to s...

We've been big fans of Fragile since its debut, and it's certainly a highly-anticipated title around here, even though we don't know whether or not it'll ever see a release outside of Japan (though it's likely). That doesn't mean, however, that we won't criticize it occasionally, and so we're going ...

Well, maybe not really, because there's only a brief segment at the tail end of this video for Fragile that shows several attacking birds on a sunny beach. The parts of the video leading up to that segment mainly focus on battling other creatures, such as glowing, floating jellyfish. Check it all o...

Three senior members of the Fragile development team have chaired a panel in Japan to answer questions about the RPG. Between them, producer Kentarou Kawashima, art director Keiko Harada, and head programmer Munehito Yasui revealed that Fragile would take a meaty 30 hours to beat, that developin...

Wow. The Fragile theme song is amazing. It's definitely the Japanese video game theme song most likely to get tears out of us. The game looks beautifully melancholy as well, and that mood is in full effect in this haunting trailer. As the January 22 release approaches, and we still have yet to hear...

The flashlight is part of what gives tri-Crescendo's Fragile its look. The ruined environments look more otherworldly viewed through a spooky light. It makes sense, then, for tri-Crescendo to add some gameplay integration to the whole flashlight thing, to emphasize it some more. In addition to th...

In this haunting new trailer for tri-Crescendo's Fragile, it's hard to decide if the haunting opening sequence or the actual in-game visuals are more compelling. As a marketing tool, this one definitely works. Of course, we were already sold on the devastated world depicted in Fragile, with its li...

Namco Bandai's Fragile isn't short on interesting characters. The latest is Shin, a brilliant (but socially weak) scientist and the latest addition to the game's ragtag cast. He'll be voiced by Toshio Furukawa (all of the game's dialog will be spoken), former voice star of Dragon Ball Z, Gundam, M...

tri-Crescendo's Fragile is a game about searching a ruined world for survivors. The decayed, destroyed suburbia gives Fragile a melancholy look, and the newly-revealed bonfire system only strengthens that impression. Bonfires appear in various locations around the game. They are the only way to id...

As a game that we would struggle to understand (even with copious amounts of this), and also as something that looks fantastic, Fragile is near the top of our list of DO WANT imports. Just to rub it in some more, Namco Bandai has announced a launch date of January 22nd, 2009 ... for Japan. Wouldn'...

Because seriously, how mellow is that tune? Lovely. Yours truly almost drifted off at his keyboard watching this. It's also nice to be reminded that we don't reside in a post-apocalyptic wasteland! This is the Tokyo Game Show trailer for Namco Bandai's Fragile, featuring plenty more of her...
