The first new Tales game in years finally has a release date. Tales of Graces F will be available for North American PS3s on March 13th, 2012.
Tales of Graces F is a PlayStation 3-enhanced version of a Wii RPG that never found release Stateside. New to the PS3 version are updated visuals, and an extended epilogue that adds up to ten hours of gameplay.
In addition to Tales of Graces F, Namco Bandai is releasing Tales of the Abyss for 3DS in February. "Moving forward, there's going to be a lot more support for the franchise," a Namco Bandai representative told us a few months ago. "The fan base is very hardcore; but at the same time, they don't make a very large audience," Sepielli admitted. "I'd be lying to you if I said if these games bomb, they're going to turn around and make Xillia," the newest Tales game to see release in Japan.
