Aksys announces that their saucy strategy RPG Record of Agarest War, would be coming to the Xbox 360 as well as he PlayStation 3 early next year, a decision they claim has saved the world.
Record of Agarest War, also known as "that soul-breeding game," was announced for North American PlayStation Network release back in July, leaving Xbox 360 owners to sit and weep and wonder why. Now the publisher has revealed that 360 owners will get to indulge in creating the next-generation of hero alongside PS3 owners this spring, a decision that is apparently much more important than anyone suspected.
"In truth, we had Record of Agarest War ready to go up on the PlayStation Network months ago," [Ed.'s note: That's a lie.]says Ben Bateman, Editor, Aksys Games, "But when a haggard man emerged from a ball of crackling energy that materialised outside our office with dire warnings from a dark future, we decided to reconsider. As it turns out, a PlayStation Network–exclusive release of Agarest was — or rather, would have been — the catalyst for World War III. The gaming community was torn apart — literally —by this apparent favouritism, and from that schism poured the infinite minions of Satan himself, the Lord of Lies. The man told us, his eyes blank with the 1000-yard stare, of the horrors of this future war. He had been sent back in time, the last hope of a desperate human resistance, to prevent what the people of this desolate future Earth called, simply, ‘The Breaking'. As the last spark of life passed from his body, broken and battered by his journey through the time vortex, we swore to honour his final wish."
"This is why Record of Agarest War has been delayed," Ben continues, his eyes wet with tears, "So that we may release it on both consoles, and in doing so, save the world."
They are brave, brave people.
