Tales of Vesperia coming to Europe

Namco-Bandai today finally announced a release date for Tales of Vesperia in Europe, unfortunately we'll have to wait until June for it. A couple of images can be found inside.

almost a years wait and it doesnt look like anything extra is going to be on the disc..nice.

Be interesting to see if it hits the ps3 by the end of the year with the standard additional contents for the extra wait

About time.
And they spend all this time so well doing absolutely NOTHING! – They don’t even mention any (for me unnecessary) localization efforts… I can’t thank these fucking idiots at Bandai/Namco enough…

they probably started dragging their feet after the game has gotten burned in sales. After all the hype of how "Vesperia broke MS into the Japanese market!" its final tally after that first week has been fairly mediocre. Considering Blue Dragon didn't actually break them into the market and Vesperia ended up still selling less than BD, i think ppl really need to update their views on how well it did there.
Then come to the US, it fairly predictably (if you actually know how well the Tales series has ever performed here and don't just go "its an anime game, all the anime fanboys will buy it!!!!") didn't sell as well as Namco probably hoped it would.
With the EU release they have a chance of barely hitting their 500k goal, but they be betting on pretty incredible sales from a region where jrpg interest has dipped lower than the US.

in short, Namco's bummed and dragging their feet.

all said, a shame, because its a damn good game.

Yhea makes sense.
Doesn't sale as we expect in territory one and two, just forget about selling in #3.

Total sense. *really not sarcastic*

*or am I*

Meh too long of a wait since the us launched not interested now will give it a miss

That's unfortunate.

You should give it a whirl; I mean who cares about what the US plays?

I surely don't care about what Japan or Europe plays.

Well according to a spanish source the EU version features two languages: Japanese and English

At least something (afaik the US version only features English) for the longer wait but hardly compensative.

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog The game's control setup is its most terrifying element. The left analog stick moves you forward, back, and strafes right and left, while the right analog stick turns you and can be used to look up (7 Hours ago)
