Tales of the Abyss was part of Namco’s crtically acclaimed Tales of series, a JRPG series that is well known for its Linear Motion Battle System, unique characters and its managed to become a staple of the Japanese RPG genre. Abyss is considered to be one of the best games in the series, self proclaimed by its fans who managed to get hold of the Japanese or American versions. As with Legendia, Abyss never saw a release over in Europe for unknown reasons and when the news hit that a 3DS port was in the works, European Tales fans were excited of a possible announcement. It seems that for the first time, hoep has finally arrived! After the confirmation of Tales of the Abyss 3DS was to be released in North America alongside the animé distributed by Funimations and the official manga, UK magazine Ngamer listed the game for a Spring 2012 release. This placement is quite reassuring as Ngamer have always been very accurate when it comes to infomation (They were the first piece of media to confirm that The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was coming to the Revolution (What’s more commonly known as the Wii)) and this infomation was told directly by Namco Bandai themselves. Unfortunatly, Spring 2012 is a rather long time to wait for a game that Japan and America is expected to get this summer however considering the amount of games that the UK has been deprived of, we’ll take anything we can get.
