This winter, y'all.

Well, it wasn't looking very good for a while there, with Namco Bandai saying plans for a stateside release were nonexistant, but Fragile: Farewell Ruins of the Moon has now been confirmed for a US release courtesy of XSeed Games.

Jun Iwasaki, president of XSeed, told IGN:

We have received countless requests from eager gamers pleading with us to publish this title, and it gives us great joy to be able to give the public what they want while being able to work on such a great game.

Fragile, developed by tri-Crescendo, takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where you play a young boy named Seto, possibly one of the last people on the planet. He meets another survivor named Ren, and when the two are separated Seto embarks with his flashlight on a quest to find her.

XSeed hopes to have the game out in North America this winter sometime.
