PS3 Eternal Sonata for February

With added bars of content.

Atari plans to release the PS3 version of Eternal Sonata here in February 2009.

The wait should be worthwhile; developer tri-Crescendo has used the extra time to add new quests, battles and even multiple endings.

Characters Crescendo and Serenade are now playable, and extra costumes are included to beef up the level of customisation on offer. And, on top of all that, there's more music from Frederic Chopin, the famous composer the story is based around.

He slipped into a coma shortly before dying of tuberculosis, you see, and supposedly drifted off to a world of fantasy based on his life and work.

Unsurprisingly, then, music plays a central role in this JRPG, not only in setting but also as an inventive battle mechanic. Coupled with beautiful presentation, the result was 8/10 from Eurogamer.
