Bandai Namco has finally announced a humiliating official recall of its notoriously buggy Wii title Tales of Graces, a mere three months after release.
Bugs include a wide variety of issues with second play-throughs, a number of non-appearing enemies and items, and most critically several bugs which can break the game by preventing progress.
Whether they have tackled alleged Wii crashing bugs is not mentioned.
Sadly, the Wii’s inability to handle heavy patching seems to have slipped their QA department’s mind – the disc swap will be by direct mail at an unannounced date.
Namco’s policy of beta testing its Tales games on secondary systems seems to be paying off – a bug-free PS3 release incorporating user feedback, new characters and plenty of DLC will doubtless arise later in 2010, much to the delight of Wii owning Tales fans.
