Game development team Midgar Studio was inspired by Final Fantasy (their devotion is in their very name) to create a world-spanning JRPG for modern systems. Titled Edge of Eternity, the game had an amazingly successful Kickstarter campaign and a steady Early Access launch on Steam in 2018. They’ve been building up Edge of Eternity from that point, and the full version at last hit PC, Mac and Linux on June 8. But didn’t they promise a console version too?
Hold your horses, Midgar says — it’s on the way. Playstation 4, Playstation 5, XBox One and XBox Series versions of Edge of Eternity should be ready this fall. XBox owners will be able to play it on Game Pass, and if you’re a PS5 owner (lucky dog) you’ll have the chance to buy a physical copy…if you don’t mind going to Gamestop.
Yup…somehow the embattled, customer-hustling, meme-attracting, thoroughly corrupt Gamestop has locked an exclusive on copies of Edge of Eternity. The copies will be cheap at just $40, and that price will likely be higher secondhand. Your call there. Dotcha just hate these moral dilemmas?
Edge of Eternity takes place in the world of Heryon, where “the people pursue a desperate war against a mysterious invader. As this conflict opposing magic and technology grows to cataclysmic proportions, a new threat emerges from the battlefield. Wage epic turn-based battles as you follow Daryon and Selene in their quest to find a cure to the all-consuming Corrosion.” Thanks to their successful Kickstarter campaign, Midgar had the funds to hire Chrono Trigger and Xenoblade Chronicles composer Yasunori Mitsuda to create the musical score for the game.
