For everyone that’s been begging and pleading for the Tales of Vesperia PS3 port to leave Japan, you may finally get your wish after nine years: thanks to some sleuthing by Gematsu, a password-protected site named http://tov10th.tales-ch.jp/ has been discovered; going by the name, it’s obvious it’s meant to celebrate the game’s 10th anniversary. Gematsu went on to report they had already heard from certain sources that Namco-Bandai would be announcing a Tales of Vesperia remaster at next week’s E3, although the supported consoles remain unknown. Regardless, exciting times!
The original Tales of Vesperia was released in 2008 for Xbox 360, but a PS3 port with new content was released exclusively in Japan in 2009, and fans have been pestering Namco nonstop for a NA/EU localization. This expansion not only includes two new party members (newcomer Patty Fleur and Flynn Schifo as a permanent inclusion), but a number of new bosses, cutscenes, sidequests, dungeons, and more. Years ago, Troy Baker — voice of the game’s protagonist, Yuri Lowell — confirmed he was called in to record new lines for the game, but nothing ever came of it. Could we finally be seeing the fruits of his work here?
