Tales of Vesperia images

Namco-Bandai has released some screenshots from Tales of Vesperia to Japanese websites, now found on Watch. Unfortunately, it was revealed in Famitsu that the game won't feature online co-op, making the whole Live community a giant sad panta.

looks fantastic! PS: The wolf in the second pic looks very similar to the link-wolf from zelda.

Looks good, hope they localise it fast.

Lack of Co-op is no surprise though.

really tight art style! BTW I doubt this will ever come to PS3... Namco hates PS3 now, Sony stole their top programmers (that's why they had difficulty in the beginning, Frame City Killer/early tekken 6 tech) and now they focus mostly on 360

the art style and colors are great. I might actually buy this one if it gets great scores.

I have no doubt that it will eventually be released on the PS3, however I wouldn't put faith in a very poorly translated sentence. It's nothing but jiberish, you could read that to mean almost anything.

Is it just me or does these screenshots look blurry?
Could it be a bloom effect?

It's focus/gaussian blur. The same effect is used in Blue Dragon to show distance between the characters and the background. Some love it, some hate it.

A little hard for this game to be next gen considering the PS4 and Xbox 720 aren't out yet. Care to elaborate how a cell-shaded game could look any better than this?

Sony did something similar to Sega. They poached half of Team Andromeda and created Polyphony! :( In case people don't know, poaching is HIGHLY frowned upon in the videogames industry, or at least it was when I was working. I'm sure most companies have anti-poaching clauses in their contracts by now but then again if a really big company poaches employees from another company then they'd probably pay for those employees' settlements if the employees get sued by their original employers.

Looks solid, hope it will be released in PAL...

yea reminds of the EA vs Ubisoft case where EA stole some of the Splinter Cell team to work on their Montreal studio (Army of TWo)

This game shows how a Wii game should look like, but it is for the 360 so it looks like crap.
Commented on 2008-03-24 17:26:31
wii can not do this, this looks real anime like, look at the tales of game for wii coming out and then compare to this

I recently read that the game comes perhaps to PS3. Nothing but a rumour. But who knows..

About the game

  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 6 should incorporate all the halo species to date. Humans, covenant, brutes, flood, forerunner & also introduce a new species (7 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 5 was a disaster storywise. Only way they can fix halo 6 is to drop that other spartan and focus only on master chief (7 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: i love the anniversary mockups. For the true fans to enjoy the classics with a modern feel. (7 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Anyway, it's early days. The next time we hear about Halo after Halo Wars 2 will be E3, and it will either be H3: Anniversary or a Halo 6 trailer and my money is on H3: A. (10 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz The H6 campaign I meant. (10 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I liked 4's campaign as well, 5 was a massive misstep and while Joe isn't necessary for the H5 campaign to be good, I think he is necessary for it to be epic. (10 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi To be frank though I loved halo 1, halo 2, halo 3, halo 4 campaigns in that order. 4 was my fav. (10 Hours ago)
