Tales of Vesperia PS3 for North America Looking Unlikely

Namco Bandai may have officially announced Tales of Graces F this afternoon for the PlayStation 3 and that made Tales fans excited, but, sadly, Tales of Vesperia PS3 still appears that it will not be coming to North America on the PS3. (PS3, Tales of Vesperia)

Who cares, we got the new tales game
J@D  +   1358d ago
I care, but its a new Tales of after all.. still cares about Vesperia PS3 either way.
Reibooi  +   1357d ago
Alot of people care. There are alot of fans who didn't and won't buy a 360 to play Vesperia which is one of my favorite tales games to date.

Not to mention there was so much added content in the PS3 version as to almost make it a different game.

It really makes no sense. We had heard from Troy Baker(one of voice actors in the game) that they had already finished the English voice over for the PS3 version which would in theory mean the translation was also done. So the only thing to do would be to press and release it and the hype over the game would probably help it to be profitable.

Maybe we can hope that if Tales of Graces F sells well they will finally release Vesperia PS3. After he didn't say no he just said they are focusing on Graces F at the moment.

what kind of "Tales of" fan wouldnt care and miss even one ?

If he didn't want us to find out about Graces F then he obviously wouldn't want use to find out about Vesperia. Look at the 3 pictures of evidence below.

In the first pic you can clearly see a darker purple font which only can be seen in the 2nd image. Also, notice the top left side of the "T" in picture one and compare it to picture 2 & 3.

If that's not enough for you then look at the bottom of the "T" in picture 1. It clearly has an underline which can ONLY be seen in the logo for Vesperia! (picture 2)

Yeah, I appreciate the localization of Graces f, but Namco are jerks for posting a teaser for a game that's not getting released in the US, lol.
Snake Raiser  +   1358d ago
If you're going to have an objection it should be that any games (that are halfway decent) are only in one region. I mean, I could understand it back for the PS1, SNES and NES eras, but by now I think pretty much every game should be released in every region. The industry has advanced so much in every other area, I don't see why it hasn't in this one.

I don't know why people are so worried. The Graces F logo was the first one to be shown on that site, and the Vesperia logo was the second. Hence, logically if people would think it through, Graces F would be the first to be announced, which it was, and Vesperia's announcement would come sometime after. It's coming people, just have a bit of faith.

Forget Vesperia,its not a big deal.One of the worst Tales games created.On the other hand Graces F looks so damn fun
disgaeapuchi  +   1358d ago
Graces F definitely looks great, though I wonder whether Namco will irritate Wii-only users by not localising the lead platform version of the game too.

I personally didn't find Vesperia bad compared to the other games in the series, while being a solid RPG it was just disappointing. It was such a missed opportunity - it was on a new system that could have moved the boundaries forward for the series yet it hardly brought any improvements to the table.

Even the also disappointing Tales of Symphonia sequel on Wii told its story better thanks to proper motion capture cutscenes, whereas Vesperia retained the text + stop-start animation that the DS has no trouble with (see Golden Sun: Dark Dawn).

Tales of Graces definitely seems to right those wrongs. Can't. Wait!

It was the Vesperia logo. The typeface used to the T is DIFFERENT to the first teaser image which showed the Tales of Graces F logo. Either Namco are trying to holding off on an announcement, OR they're jerk offs for teasing the logo of a game they're not even bringing to the west.

We'll see.

Lets just hope Namco Bandai localize the new Tales of Xillia.

Honestly they just need to focus with Graces and Xillia, and that's quite enough to think about at the moment. Can't blame them, except that they could have brought PS3Vesperia much sooner to have avoided the crunch.

Posting a picture which is clearly the Vesperia logo and then saying its not vesperia what a load of crap
anasurimbor  +   1358d ago
Tales of Vesperia is a phenomenal JRPG. I imported it and loved it, and I'd buy a localized version in a second.
HungryGoku  +   1358d ago
I don't care. I want Graces.
Infernostew  +   1358d ago
I love the fact that we're getting Graces f in NA but Vesperia was the one that I really wanted to play first. ToV was the one that really made me angry at Bamco for not localizing and it still seems foolish not to localize a game that's 80% or more localized.
smashman98  +   1358d ago
i give it max a month before vesperia is confirmed it will be coming
sashimi  +   1358d ago
Tales of V. really need to be localized also. I mean i haven't played a Tales game since 2006!2freakin thousand six. I'm happy we're finally getting a new tales game but i seriously want Tales of V.
I almost wished that BandaiNamco did go backrupt so Sony can buy their Tales ip and their development studio who made all the tales games.

I don't get it... why is it so tough to localize? You have the 360 version with English voices and dialog...
wquach  +   1358d ago
On top of that, the PS3 Japanese version was already released! The coding/port is done. Stick in the 360 English voices/dialog + PS3 Japanese port, slap it onto some blu-rays and voila.

Way to go Namco Bandai.
PirateThom  +   1358d ago
There's extra content that would need voice overs... but, I'm sure most people wouldn't even mind subtitles rather than new voice work.
wquach  +   1358d ago

As I recall, I think Troy Baker stated in April 2010 that he had done additional voice work for the PS3 version, so perhaps the additional work has already finished? That may have just been twisting his response or so provided it was an answer he gave at a Q&A session. And of course, there's Flynn and Patty Fleur they'd need voicework for as well.
rob6021  +   1358d ago
They should put both Graces and Vesperia on one disk - these games would be a hard sell at $60 without the added value.
initial_kay  +   1358d ago
are there any tales game out for the NA ps3.... and whens the release date for the upcoming tales game for ps3?
KiasuKiasiMan  +   1358d ago

You can actually see the bottom of the r and i on the left side of the image from Vesperia. Graces doesn't have any letters with pointed bottoms. Both letters are shaped in the same way as the Vesperia logo.

In addition you can see the large V in the middle of the image. So yeah, its the Vesperia logo.

Though he may have just used it to throw us off. However, the Tekken logo was also seen. So if I'm not wrong there's a Namdai press conference on Monday. Maybe that's where we'll see a new Tekken as well as Vesperia
Dmd  +   1358d ago
I am not a Tales fan, but I was dying to play Vesperia, and I could play it only on the ps3 since I don't have an 360. TOG:F holds no interest to me... I'm still waiting for the good news. I'm still waiting for that long overdue announcement. :/
