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 lif...

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, Me...

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.

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't...

Fragile's an interesting creature. An RPG, no doubt, but with the sort of theme that makes most other RPGs sound like cheap fantasy novels: ruin exploration. Neat! But it gets better, because we're obviously not talking about ancient Roman ruins or anything from these screenshots. Instead, it's the...

Eternal Sonata will be out in North America in a little over three weeks from now. Those of you who've held out getting the original title on the 360 are probably looking forward to that Oct. 21 date, but how does playing the game right now on your PS3 sound? Sounds good, doesn't it? Well you can d...

Eternal Sonata brought the charming sound of Chopin onto the Xbox 360 late last year; meanwhile on the other side of the console pond, PS3 owners waited with the utmost patience, just waiting for the title to cross over -- which it did.

Fragile continues to look like the most atmospheric Wii title since Samus did her thing. This short trailer doesn't contain much in the gameplay department, but what is there has a really eerie ambience to it. The haunting tune that plays as the beam from Seto's flashlight crawls across these desol...

Amused? At least the new RPG succeeds in inspiring emotions.What you see in the above image is Fragile...

Click image to check out the new screens Even though there are only four new screens of Namco Bandai's Fragile ~ Farewell Moon Ruins, their beauty warrants an update.
