Latest issue of Nintendo Power reveals Tales of the Abyss is heading to North America.
Good news, about time Namco started caring
I played this game on the PS2, don't need to play it again on a handheld really.
Me to I don't know why they bring it to the 3ds.
I dunno...maybe for people who "haven't" played the game on the ps2....-sighs- morons.
YES YES YES! Another reason I'm glad I managed to grab a 3DS for very cheap. Never got to finish this on PS2 so now I'll have the chance. This and Zelda will finally make the purchase worth while, as I have zero 3DS games at the moment.
bring out Vesperia then.
this game's gonna flop too and then Namco's not gonna bring more games to the west. I bet that any Tales release for the Xbox or PS3 would sell more than the 3DS and Wii combined yet they refuse to localize Xillia and Vesperia... Namco is being ran by a bunch of morons I tell you. Is like SNK making exclusive games for the X360 in Japan and then they wonder why the company's in such a bad shape. I mean, really...? =/
This game actually has quite the chance for success being on the 3DS. With the library of games being so small, people are currently more willing to try things they otherwise wouldn't have. 3.6 million 3DS owners out there with very few games to play at the moment. This one has a huge chance of taking off since its better than just about every single 3DS game released thus far. The only argument one could have is that maybe street fighter is better.
Vesperia didn't sell well in the US. And i love that you think SNK is in bad shape because of their exclusives for the 360 in Japan. It goes deeper than that. Shows how little you know of the industry.
no ps3 version namco? it's gonna flop if it's not.
it's a port of the ps2 version. do you really need it on the ps3?
Ugh.. I'm happy that tales fans get another game but come on, namco. Of course they pick the game where they have the least amount of work to do since it's a direct port of the US ps2 version so no need to retranslate the script or anything. It's not an updated port so most of the people who already played the game have little reason to re-buy this one unless for some reason they bought a 3ds right away and didn't released that the line-up was lacking. Not to mention, it adds to the list of ports and remakes that have already been absorbed by the 3ds. Namco should put their efforts into translating tales games that would most likely sell more copies (Vesperia ps3, XIllia) and spend money to actually promote Graces f (which still doesn't have a release date or any info for that matter).
Im okay with this. 3DS needs a good RPG and i haven't had the chance to play this game. Defintely picking it up when it realeases.
thisi is nice but i kinda wanted something else. Good for thos who haven't played this game before but i've finished tales of abyss 3 times already ... so i'm kinda out ... now some news for tales of graces or tales of xillia coming from namco bandai america would be very nice ... but congrats NB , a nice step , but it's time to run , now
If I buy it, it will be on 3DS...not ps2 and damn sure not PSP..lol. :)
Makes sense. This game didn't get as much attention as it should have back then. The wiser decision would have been to port a better version of Tales of Symphonia; I would have been instantly sold.
I'm buying this just to support Namco and the Tales series. Abyss was a good enough game. I didn't dislike it. But I'd much rather have Symphonia or Vesperia on the hand held. I wonder if Namco knows how many people buy their games just to keep them coming for the brilliant ones that pop up every so often?
