Scrawl: "The final day in Namco Bandai’s ‘A Tale of Two Richards’ teaser website has gone live. And what does it tease today? Why, none other than Tales of Vesperia!"
OMG! Is this really happening!?
They better make this happen damnit. I played the 360 version and felt cheated that all its contents were not on disk. Now I have chance to play game in full and I want it NOW Namco.
Namcobandai looks like they're scaling down their western approach games and adding more Japanese influenced games into the mix again. Most notably teasing the localization of Tales of Gaces F & Vesperia and bringing Dark Soul's to the west. Jeff from psblog stated that they're heading to event held by NamcoBandai this week. So hopefully, NamcoBandai announces localization for Tales of Graces F/ Vesperia and maybe officially announced few other titles they've been teasing like Soul Caliber 5.
Well dragun I hope this turns into what we want. Fingers crossed.
I know! Am I dreaming or is this just a dirty trick by Namco?!?! I don't know what to believe anymore. I guess we'll see tomorrow.
After 2 and a half years Scamco can kiss my a*s.
Well they did bring it west 2 years ago you can buy it for under 20 bucks on 360. I can never wait 3 years for the best games in a series
If they put it at full price, they can kiss my ass.
@ Man In Black
They owe all of us in the west a $40 price tag for ignoring us all this freakin time. 2 yrs nd a half?
I feel like (LINK) just found the the master key!!!!
Da Da Da Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!?!
The PS3 releases just keep coming. It's absolutely insane! Every month is going to have multiple top tier titles coming out.
This better be truth or the rage is coming. xD
What? Just because Bamco has been dicking us around all this time? *Tests baseball bat* Say, where are the Bandai/Namco offices in the States...
4555 Great America Parkway, Suite 201 Santa Clara, CA 95054 Wanna join me to prepare the molotov? xD hehehehe
have you been planing this?
shhhhh... *no comment xD *COUGH*(of couse!)
If it's true, I'll be getting this day 1
me too. finally, it is happening.
A little. If it's true.
I've known it's been coming. Namdai have been a complete bunch of a**holes for not saying anything about it, but I knew it would come. I'm glad my faith carried me through. Not in Namdai, in hoping that the game would come.
Need this to come to EU :)
just import from the state if it comes. the ps3 is not region locket. somthing i loved whin i got an english version of demons souls in feb. 2009... 7-8 months before us date..
Import tax is a mix bag here Demon Soul was only £20 but I've heard from friends that it can be a much as £100 so I'll like to know if were getting a EU version before I import it as I hate the tax
Import if you must!
This is the duke nukem forever of localizations.
bubbles for the laugh ^^
Localization to North America and Europe I hope?
It's crazy that it's taken this long. Didn't the game come out on the Xbox 360 like in 2009? It's probably one of my favorite RPG's of all time, but I'd never wait around for the port. Still it must be a great day for people that were holding out hope.
2008 in Japan and NA, 2009 in Europe.
Who has a time machine? I want it to be tomorrow already!!!
Will this be the first localized tales game for PS3?
apparently so... if the announce is a Tales of game of course.
If it is, I can see Vesperia being released pretty soon and I bet we'll see Graces F sometime in the fall.
Now all they need to do is localize Tales of Xillia (or at least announce it). @Infernostew I'll support Tales of Graces F but not Vesperia. I couldn't care less about that game.
Support the tales games for ps3 when/if they come out and I'm sure we'll see Xillia. edit: Better than nothing. I don't have a 360 and I've been waiting for Vesperia for a long long time so I'm ecstatic right now. I'll get both and lift my embargo on Bamco. I just loves the tales of series.
How can you not care for Vesperia? It's a great game.
I guess the losing of profit for Namco Bandai is a wake up call. They lose a lot of money on Enslaved and Forsaken Kingdom. Stick to the one that sells best Namco Bandai and you'll be alright. :)
well thats what they get for westernizing. Namco Bandai, like Capcom are out of touch with gamers in the west. they dont get we still want games from Japan. games like enslaved taught them a lesson.
Enslaved and Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom were actually good games. it is sad they didn't sell well but I enjoyed them and supported Namco for trying something different. I hope we get Vesperia as well
Bwahahahah. I'm not believing this until there's an announcement. Seriously.
I'll get it finally if it's true. Just announce it already! Dont tease us!
IT'S COMING???? RLYYYY???? ALRIGHT!!!!!!
Why the fu*k wasting money on localizing Vesperia instead of Graces f?! I already have that game for god's sake BAMCO!
We could be getting both. One of the other teasers mentioned something about graces.
Yeah the game is old and localizing is overdue, I would rather buy Graces. Why? localizing Vesperia is cheaper because they already have the voice acting and the text translated, all they have to do is work on the new stuff. So if you want Graces, you have to buy this game to meet their target sales.
"So if you want Graces, you have to buy this game to meet their target sales" NO WAY! As I said, I already have Vesperia for the ps3 "the Japanese version" so I wont buy it again even if its in English! I guess I'm gonna import Graces f too instead of waiting another damn year!
only so namco/bandai always localize their tales games i played vesparia pretty vigorously on the 360 so im 50/50 on getting the PS3 version, i'll need to see whats being added
The ps3 version has everything that the 360 has as well as: Flynn as a playable character A new character, Patty, is added as well. A bit of a backstory for Patty, as well as a new boss. 2 New Giganto monster. Two new Sidequests: Sword Dancer, which is tied to Yuri and Flynn's backstory and Telescoping Graveyard, which seems to have something to do with Spiral Draco. New Weapons, Titles, and Skills for the characters. New Team Colleseum Battles. Everyone except for Patty also get second Mystic Artes.
just imagine it as a rerelease with a 15-25 hours addon .
Teasing Tales of Graces F PS3 on day 1 and Tales of Vesperia PS3 on day 6. Wonder what day 7, which is the last day and tomorrow will tease. Tales of Xillia I hope.
Bring it to EU too and ofc do it dual audio u must know by now that true JRPG fans prefer to play their games with the original Japanese VO, do that and I will buy it day 1.
true jrpg fan play in Japanese well i guess that not me.rather have in English thank you.
Just do it and give the Tales fans what we want. Could even be viewed as a test to see how well future Tales games do in the west. Of course, they wouldn't be in this mess if they had just released Vesperia as a multi-plat in the first place
honestly i would just settle for english subs if they couldn't be bothered to do a proper localization just dont leave all the western fans high and dry apart from the few decent FF games (non recently i might add) tales is the only decent JRPG series we westerns can count on, others like kingdom hearts and V Chronicals just dont come around often enough
Exactly, especially in the past few years since JRPGs have really dried up. I look at my PS2 collection and literally 80% of it is JRPG, from FF to Digital Devil Saga. But yes, I'm sure some would even prefer subtitles to english dialogue, I don't mind either way as long as it's released
lets show our support with our pocket books guys -_- we must not let this fail if this game doesnt see good numbers we can kiss it goodbye
GREAT NEWS :D I've been wanting to play this for ages!
Hope it is not an announcement for the anime first strike or something, that would burn. Hopefully enough people buy this on the PS3 to restore their faith in releasing some jrpgs to westside.
When i saw the title of this news, I said "Bull fuckin shit!"
When I clicked the link, I said "0_o WTF TOOK THEM SOO DAMN LONG"
I once game up on thinking Tales would come to the west for PS3, and any little news that spoke about Tales, I ignored it completely. Now THIS got my attention and I only hope we get more Tales titles localized in the future.
I think they never realize where their true JRPG fanbase was all this time. Why would you make Tales for Xbox and Wii and localize it? No wonder they didn't sell very well.
i bought it for Xbox but havent played it yet. Should have waited...but at least t was only 20 bucks
I hope this is really going to happen. I have been waiting for them to bring them over for a long time. First, a new Disgaea, Persona, Aterier Iris, and now the Tales games. It's about time they bring what people really want over here.
Meh....I couldn't care less about Vesperia. i already finished that game for more than 4 times already. Tales of Graces F is all I need :)
I hope for an European Localisation too....
I want PS3/ToV, ToG and ToX with French subtitles....
OMG! I think I'm going crazy!!!!!!!! Namco Bandai actually releasing two tales of games over here PLUS maybe, and I say maybe, A re-release of a galaga game, pacman game, tekken and many more??!?!??! Only one thing to say, Nice move NamcoBandai!!!!
I want them to bring out the Tales collection with Tales of the Abyss and Tales of Legendia. They could also bring out the Tales games that they put on PS2 that only were released in Japan. I would not mind paying to play those games either.
