Namco Bandai Localizing Tales of Graces F

After its original 2009 release on the Wii, Western Tales fans have been wondering when they were going to get their hands on the title. And despite the Tales of Graces’ fan translation wrapping up, Namco Bandai has announced that the PS3 enhanced rerelease, Tales of Graces F, will be coming to North America.

Namco Bandai didn’t commit to a time frame, so we’ll have to wait and see when the title will be launching. Hopefully this title is just the start of the series return over here in the states. Namco Bandai has been ignoring localizing the entires for quite some time.

Tales of Graces F and Tales of the World Radiant Mythology 3 Trailers

While we had heard a lot of talking when it comes to the latest Tales announcements, we hadn’t seen any solid footage or screenshots aside from a few scans. And while we will be left without any in-game media for PlayStation 3 original Tales title, we do get a quick look at Tales of Graces F and Tales of the World Radiant Mythology 3.

A bit of a warning, I’m not sure if the Tales of Graces F trailer contains a major spoiler or not for the original Tales of Graces. It could be something that happens right at the start of the game, but it looks like it could also be taking place in the new chapter that takes place after the original Tales of Graces’ story. Watch at your own risk. But if you do risk it, you get to see what the game looks like running on a PlayStation 3.

More Tales Series Localization Talk, Tales of Graces F Details and More

Namco Bandai dropped a ton of new Tales titles recently. And while there is still no sign of the localizations of the titles, Namco Bandai did release a statement saying that they were looking into the new releases and the possibilities of localizing them. The only exception was Tales of Graces, which Namco Bandai said they had no plans on localizing.

Namco Bandai followed this up with another statement recently on their Facebook account The post was essentially identicle to the previous, but instead read “Unfortunately we do not have any plans to localize the series at this time.” The post was pulled shortly after, but of course not before the internet could grab the post and spread the word.

The real difference here is the mention of no plans on localizing “the series” rather then the previous Tales of Graces.  Whether or not the comment actually means something is anyone’s guess.

On a better note, Namco Bandai has talked more about their upcoming Tales releases for the PS3, including the PS3 port of Tales of Graces. Tales of Graces F, as it is called on PS3, will include an all new after story for the title. This doesn’t seem to just be some extra cut-scene at the end or anything either. It is a full playable section of the game. Reports claim that the extra story contains 3/4ths the amount of voice acting as the original title, almost doubling the voice acting for the title.

While Namco Bandai still hasn’t said anything about the all new Tales title on the platform, they did put up a teaser site for the title. The site has a countdown timer with a full 135 days until its reveal. Namco Bandai also released the art we saw in Jump magazine before along with a handful of smaller pieces of art on the teaser site. You can check those out after the jump.

Tales of Graces PS3, Two New Tales Titles, Localization Talks and More

Over the past week, Namco Bandai has been talking a lot about the Tales series. Most of the announcements are good, but Namco Bandai also has said a couple of things fans should worry about.

First up, the Japanese only Wii exclusive, Tales of Graces, is getting ported to PlayStation 3 under the title Tales of Graces F. This title will include all new abilities, story cutscenes, improved visuals, and a new costume for the purple haired Sophie. The title is set to be released this Winter in Japan.

PlayStation 3 Tales fans get a double dose of Tales with an all new title in the works. No details have been announced. But there was a bit of teaser art released, which you can check out after the jump.

On the portable side, Tales of  World Radiant Mythology 3 was announced for PlayStation Portable. The cross over title includes over 80 characters, including Tales of Graces’ Aspel.

Of course if you re a Tales fan you are probably thinking, “What about localizations?” Namco Bandai spoke out, basically saying they are unsure about localizing any of the titles yet. Unfortunately, they pointed out Tales of Graces specifically and said “we don’t currently have any plans to bring Tales of Graces to the US.” Fantastic.

Namco Bandai did announce one bit of Tales media that they will be localizing though. The 26 episode Tales of the Abyss anime that ran from 2008 till 2009 in Japan is seeing an official localization from Namco Bandai.  Hopefully we will see a localization for the actual games as well.

You can check out the magazine scans for each title after the jump.
