Fans of the “Tales Of” series are getting a good release this week from Bandai Namco as Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition comes to consoles today. The game was released for all three major consoles and PC, complete with updated HD graphics and a bunch of new content that never made it outside of the Japanese release. Which includes new characters, storylines, costumes, and music. Here’s a little bit from the game’s trailer and description, but if you love these games, this one is going to be a must-own.
Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition is an adventure that follows Yuri Lowell, a former Imperial Knight, as he travels around the world of Terca Lumireis looking for his neighbor’s blastia core. Along the way, Yuri gets pulled into a whirlwind of different exploits, meeting new characters and traveling to different locations, ultimately being dropped into the middle of an evil scheme that threatens the survival of the entire planet.
Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition features a specialized version of the Tales Of series’ Linear Motion Battle System for combat, where players control a party member in real-time combat while the rest of the party is controlled by A.I. commands. Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition also features two new playable characters; Patty Fleur, a young pirate searching for her lost memories, as well as Yuri’s rival and best friend, Flynn Scifo. Along with these new playable party members, Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition will include additional story scenarios, locations, and costumes that will be all-new for Western audiences.
