A definitive tale as old as time has finally got a release date
After overwhelming fan demand, and an excruciatingly long wait Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe has finally announced that Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition will be available for the first time in Europe on January 11th, 2019.
It will be available on the Xbox One, and thankfully for me and many other PlayStation gamers, it will be on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, and the icing on the cake is, of course, the Nintendo Switch, and PC. Meaning that nobody has an excuse to not play this absolute gem.
Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition includes up-scaled screen resolution, characters, events, and costumes that were never released outside of Japan, as well as introducing two new playable party members. Flynn Scifo, the main character’s best friend and rival, and Patty Fleur, a young pirate searching for her lost memories.
Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition uses a specialised iteration of the ‘Tales of’ series’ Linear Motion Battle System for combat. Players control a single party member in real-time combat while other party members are controlled by a customised set of A.I. commands. Players can swap between any of the four characters at any time during battles and can perform physical attacks, Magic Artes or even powerful Mystic Artes.
Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition will be available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 system, Nintendo Switch and PC. Now excuse me while I watch the E3 announcement trailer again to remind me how excited I am that I finally get to play this beloved JRPG.
