While more information for Tales of Graces F & Tales of The Abyss 3DS is set to be revealed during this week’s Japan Expo held in France, early reports from the event-goers had shed some information regarding the two games.
Tales of the Abyss 3DS is actually getting a release date now: 10th November. Originally a PS2 game released in 2005, Tales of the Abyss has seen quite a number of adaptations such as a manga and an full-blown anime. In fact, Tales of the Abyss is probably one of the more successful Tales games in the entire series’ life-time!
Tales of Graces F, on the other hand, wasn’t so much of a star during the event as there was some technical difficulties that had prevented Namco Bandai from showing the trailer properly. Instead, a Tales of Xillia scenario trailer was shown and had received thunderous applause when Hideo Baba asked if Europe wanted a localization for Tales of Xillia. This might just be the start of (regularly) localized Tales games that every fan is hoping for!
As far as the NA version of Tales of the Abyss is concerned, there has been no word about it. It isn’t all that bad, just that NA fans would just have to make-do with importing from EU.
