Edge of Eternity

Publisher Dear Villagers and developer Midgar Studio have announced the official release date of the console versions of Edge of Eternity. PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X and S owners will be able to play it starting February 10, 2022. Nintendo Switch owners will have to wait a little longer, ie February 23, 2022.

For who does not know it, we are talking about a Japanese-style RPG that has found a good success on PC, despite the criticisms received. Let's see the trailer with which the release of the console versions was announced:

For more information, we invite you to read our review of Edge of Eternity, in which we wrote:

The first impression remains for the duration of the game, and it is one that the developers have wanted to take the longest of their legs. The team, over the years, has almost doubled but is still made up of just eleven people, too few to cope with the bulk of a title that does not want to miss anything: from long cut-scenes to an "like" open world structure , passing through an experience system that involves both individual characters and the weapons they wield, without neglecting crafting and environmental puzzles. In short, perhaps a little too much meat in the fire that prevents Edge Of Eternity from expressing its full potential: the result is a decent Japanese role-playing game with obvious budget limits. The problem is rather the fierce competition, with the advent in Europe of franchises that until recently had remained exclusive to the Rising Sun. The hope is that Midgar Studio will continue the finishing work also in the coming months, given that the foundations offer good potential.

Beautiful JPRG Edge of Eternity scheduled for console release on Feb 10

JRPG Edge of Eternity, developed by French indie developer Midgar Studio, has been announced for console release on Xbox and PlayStation consoles on February 10, 2022. A cloud-based version for Nintendo Switch will follow closely on February 23.

If you are getting some Final Fantasy vibes from that trailer, that's not a mistake. The studio is called 'Midgar' for a reason, y'all.

I played a bit of Edge of Eternity on PC, and I found the visuals in the game to be absolutely stunning for something made by a small indie team. The opening of the game is ridiculously strong, sinking its narrative hooks into the player with little warning. I knew the game was coming to consoles, so I pressed pause on my playthrough (I wasn't reviewing the game, and I find that couch lounging is much more appropriate for RPGs than desk chair sitting). I'm excited to see that the game will soon be available on PS5, because it has the visual fidelity to really sing on that system.
