Bandai Lies to Protect Xbox Owners’ Feelings

tales-of-vesperia-deceit-1.png

With the news that the additions planned for the long-awaited PS3 version of Tales of Vesperia appear to have been present from the start, Bandai have been accused of betraying Xbox owners with the “exclusive” nature of the game’s Xbox release.

They recently issued an explicit denial that there were any traces of the new features in the original game, especially the new character. Fans are less than convinced…

This evidence is rather stronger than the lingering traces of pirate loli Patty present in the code:

Xbox 360 Owners Betrayed by Tales of Vesperia

tales-of-vesperia-kemono-mimi.jpg

The much anticipated PS3 version of Tales of Vesperia was recently announced, and of the many extras included in it the most notable addition is pirate loli character Patty Fleur.

However, a 2ch denizen who just happened to be browsing the compiled code for the game with a hex editor (let us not enquire too deeply as to why) has discovered evidence that she was in fact in the game from the start, in the form of mentions of her name alongside those of other characters.

This plainly casts doubt on her “new” status, and possibly suggests that all this was planned from the start?

Otaku Rage over PS3 Tales Betrayal

otaku-tales-mania.jpg

Even as PS3 owners have been celebrating the much anticipated release of Tales of Vesperia for the PS3, some Xbox 360 owning otaku have been infuriated by the “exclusive” nature of their release, and have resorted to typically extravagant displays of outrage.

Above you see their disc breaking and magazine burning… A possible case of overreaction?

Happy news for Tales fans arrives in the form of confirmation that Xbox 360 “exclusive” Tales of Vesperia, the latest of Namco’s home console “mothership” titles, is to be adapted into a theatrical anime, to be released in 2009.

Other details are scarce, but given the quality of recent Tales anime we might be well served by this.

Japan: 3D Tales of Hearts Do Not Want

2D vs 3D CG – Tales of Hearts

The unusual decision to release the latest Tales RPG “Tales of Hearts” in two versions with drastically differing visual styles in the movies and packaging, one based on 3D computer graphics ala Final Fantasy, the other on classic Tales anime visuals, turned heads when it first came to light, particularly given the dubious choice of character designs in the 3D version.

Turned heads, much as a grisly traffic accident does. It does not seem the 3D version is selling well in Japan; second-hand sales reveal the 2D version is selling for 30% more than the 3D version. Some take this as a sign of the ill-advised nature of the  scheme…

Tails of Fail

Famitsu seem to have it in for the Tales series – whilst they have frequently featured the games on their covers, the artist they retain to provide these illustrations leaves much to be desired in a number of areas…

Their new Tales of Hearts cover is but the latest in a long line of such covers:

Being a huge fan of the PS2 science fantasy RPG upon which this anime is based, I was apprehensive about the Tales of the Abyss adaptation, thinking it could well suffer a mediocre remake. However, I am delighted to say the anime is already shaping up to be one of astonishing quality.
