Eternal Sonata: trailer no. 2

Eternal Sonata (formerly Trusty Bell) is a unique Japanese RPG with a beautiful premise. The second trailer for the game was released yesterday, and you can watch it above. For those unfamiliar with the game, here's a little bit about its story:
The story takes place in a dream world which centers around the piano composer Frédéric Chopin, who died at the age of 39 due to tuberculosis. The plot centers around the concept that three hours prior to his death, Chopin dreamed of a fairy-tale land, in which people with incurable diseases have great magical powers. (source)
The game also promises to feature a combat system based on musical elements and character-unique special attacks.

Eternal Sonata has been officially announced for the XBOX 360, but the ESRB website has listed it as being rated Teen for the Playstation 3, too.

Perhaps it's the whole 'impeding death' theme that earnt it the big T rating. It sounds far too sweet to be naughty in any other way. Chopin dropping the F bomb, for example.
