Assemble your favorite team and enjoy exciting real-time battles with all new Mystic Artes and skills.
For those of you who aren’t aware, Tales of Vesperia was initially released on the Xbox 360 as an exclusive but later made its way to the PlayStation 3. In its initial release, Flynn Scifo was only playable at certain points with limited capabilites but in the re-release, Flynn became a permanent party member along with another new character, Patty Fleur, which has ties with the legendary pirate Aifread.
Unfortunately, the re-release was only available in Japanese so fans who rely on the English language were not able to enjoy the additional content unless they were willing to play the game blindly. This is one of the best Tales games in my books, higher than Abyss even, as I love how refreshing it is to have a main character, Yuri Lowell, that isn’t clueless, spoiled, or simply naive.
You can check out the trailer at the top of this post. Once again, Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition will be coming out sometime in Winter 2018 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
