NEWS - Tales of Vesperia Remastered for 10th Anniversary
Reported by NCZ on Mon Jun 11 2018

At Microsoft's E3 conference, Bandai Namco announced the definitive remaster of Tales of Vesperia!

Tales of Vesperia was originally released for Xbox 360 in 2008, recounting the journey of the rogueish imperial knight Yuri Lowell, and since then has become one of the alltime fan-favourite Tales games. Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition will be based on the game's PS3 port that famously never left Japan, boasting a bevy of new content. Along with an all-new party member, pirate Patty Fleur, Yuri's rival Flynn Scifo will also join the party as a permanent cast member. On top of that, Definitive Edition will also be faithfully remastered to take advantage of how much more powerful consoles have become over the years, boasting gorgeous 1080p resolution.

The game will boast both English and Japanese audio tracks, and full text in English, Neutral Spanish, French, and Portuguese (Brazilian and European).

Years ago, lead voice actor Troy Baker implied that although it never ended up being released, he had in fact recorded new dialogue for the PS3 port of Vesperia. If Namco Bandai still have the recordings, it is completely possible fans can hear him as Yuri once again.

Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition will be out on ALL current platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch, and will be available in Winter 2018, commemorating the 10th anniversary of its original release.

The largely dead silence that permeated through the audience after the trailer made me feel dead inside. Those people don't know a good game when they see it. XD

Anywho, definitely looking forward to this! I've given up all hope of us getting the PS3 version and now, not only are we getting it, but on every major console, as well!

Now comes the huge debate on what system I should get it for--PS4 or Switch? I'm just hoping the Switch version doesn't have any cutbacks in comparsion to other versions, is all (lower frame-rates/resolutions and the like).

So nice to see it's coming out on other consoles, been wanting to give this title a shot for a very long time.

Ah nice, not just Xbox! Great for me.

I remember Troy saying that. I hope they have most, if not all, of his recordings as Yuri. That's the first big role I've heard him in.

Yeah! I'm really happy it's going to be on Switch. Xenoblade 2 has spoiled me so much that now I want every RPG on Switch whenever possible!

I have always wanted to play Vesperia and never owned a 360, so I am so, so happy that it's finally being remastered for everybody.

And yeah, for sure. Yuri is Troy's original lead RPG role. It would mean so, so much to me if he gets to keep him.

Every game needs to be for Switch (though I’ll be a complete degenerate if that happens haha).

I hope you, and many others, enjoy this! It’s still my favorite Tales game.
