After wranglings, hype, rumour, put-ups, take-downs and repetition of the highest order, Namco's worst ever kept secret was finally confirmed a few days ago as Eternal Sonata (Trusty Bell in Japan) was confirmed for the PS3. It all started with an ESRB listing for the PS3 for Eternal Sonata, which was taken down quickly. Then, the listing appeared on Namco's website, then taken down again.
The final twist was to come though as just days later, the game was found in the latest edition of Famitsu, which Namco apparently gave the go-ahead to publish. Famitsu also reports on 2 new playable characters for the PS3 version, though this is unconfirmed.
