A friend that works at GameStop just sent this to me. If this turns out to be true, I assume this is the Vita re-released "R" version? We rarely get the Tales handheld titles so it'd be cool if we did indeed end up getting this.

It would be weird to see a Hearts R release before an Innocence R release.

You missed your chance. We already have FFX, P4G and Ys. All of which are far superior.

They could have been releasing rpgs on the Vitabwhen we were crying out for them.

I have the game on Xbox. I just think that a good PS3 game would sell more than a bad VITA game.

It is a game that isn't available in English on a system desperate for games. The other Xbox 360 to PS3 RPGs didn't do that well, and Vesperia PS3 has a lot of new stuff to translate.

I tried the Japanese demo and it was not only hard as balls but also pretty fun. I've also had both of those impressions confirmed by a friend that played the game. Don't know why some people here seem to dislike the game.

And I guess Namco remembers the Vita exists?

I thought work on Vesperia PS3 was already done, it was just never released :/

It could be worse. We could be getting Tales of Hearts R for the iOS.

Two ports and one new game.

With Namco, I'll believe it when I see it.

They kind of completely changed the way the game looks/plays, iirc. The DS one was 2D while this one is 3D with a new (?) battle system.

It was an outsourced port with shoddy 3D graphics I think

To this day, I still can't believe there was stuff in this game that was cut from the DS version. 2D Tales FTW.

Got rid of the amazing 2D battle system for some average 3D system. Also add in random encounter.

Nope. P4G had new characters and content, not to mention a ton of minor gameplay tweaks. The definitive version of that game without question. My favorite game of all time too, for what it's worth.

I'd play it. I have trouble finding the motivation to sit in front of my TV for that long for a Tales of game. I'd rather play it on Vita, even if it is inferior in some way that I'm not even aware of.

I forgot both Hearts R and Innocence R have random encounters. WTF?

I think some events were cut out in Hearts R as well.

The battle system is no graces or xillia but still way better than symphonia/abyss/vesperia imo.

tbh though Tales of Hearts had that weird initial DS version too since it was like 'real life Tekken style models' vs. 'anime style' for the event scenes... so perhaps it was just intended to be the experimental Tales where they just changed a ton of shit around that they normally don't do, lol.



So... pretty....???

I agree with that. We do need more rpgs. I loved my PSP for being an rpg machine
