It is my pleasure to report that Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe has announced Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Nintendo Switch console, and PC digital. Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition includes upscaled screen resolution, characters, events, and costumes never released outside of Japan. This updated version of an RPG classic will be released this winter.
Follow Yuri Lowell, a resident in the Lower Quarter of Zaphias and former Imperial Knight, as he accepts a mission to retrieve a stolen Blastia Core used to regulate his neighbourhood’s water supply. This simple mission spins into a series of events that finds Yuri befriending a colourful cast of characters, travelling to exotic locations, and being pushed into the middle of a nefarious plot that threatens the destruction of the entire planet.
Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition features two new fully playable party members for the West; Patty Fleur, a young pirate searching for her lost memories, as well as Yuri’s rival and best friend, Flynn Scifo. Along with these two new playable characters, Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition will include additional scenarios and locations that will be all-new for players in the West.
Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition uses a specialised version of the TALES OF series’ Linear Motion Battle System for combat. Players control a single party member in real-time combat while the other three party members are controlled by a customised set of A.I. commands. Players can swap between the four characters at any time during battles and can perform both physical and Mystic Artes attacks.
I couldn’t be more excited about this news. As a long time fan of the TALES OF series I always dreamed of owning this title. Now it’s finally coming to PlayStation consoles in Europe. Not only that it is the Definitive Edition with all the bells and whistles.
Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition will be available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 system, Nintendo Switch and PC Digital this winter.
