Who here is a fan of the Tales series? How’d you like one of its finest hours remastered with new content? You got it today.
During Microsoft’s E3 press conference, Bandai Namco revealed Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition is on the way to XBox One. The remastered release will contain additional characters and content.
Historically, XBox consoles haven’t been known for their quality RPGs, but Tales of Vesperia was considered one of its finest. The original Vesperia launched exclusively on the XBox 360 back in 2008, but Namco has confirmed the Definitive Edition will be multiplatform, despite its reveal in the XBox conference. It’s also coming to Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4 and PC.
As for a release window, Namco would only commit to “Winter 2018.” Trailer looks lovely:
