Posted By: John Manalang - Monday, October 20, 2008 1:59 PM

Producer Stephanie Fernandez was kind enought to give out some details regarding the PS3's exclusive content on Namco Bandai's upcoming RPG, Eternal Sonata. Check them out:

  • New scenes revealing more of the plot, including modified versions of previous scenes
  • Two new playable characters - Serenade and Crescendo
  • New quests, dungeons, enemies and bosses
  • Exclusive Chopin compositions and new costumes for characters

Eternal Sonata may have been released for the Xbox 360 a year ago, but with all these new features in the PS3 version, a second-visit should be worthwhile. The game's out tomorrow for the PS3.

Straight from Microsoft's Tokyo Game Show Keynote, Square-Enix's latest RPG title, The Last Remnant, will hit stores this November 20, which would be the day after the debut of the New Xbox Live Experience.

Last Remnant features epic, large-scale battles and of course, the title will unravel the mystery behind an ancient civilization. Square and JPRG fans, make sure you don't pass this up after you've finished Infinite Undiscovery and Tales of Vesperia. The PS3 version's release date is still yet to be confirmed.
