Namco announced that Tales of Hearts R for the Playstation Vita will be released on November 14th. Still a few months out, but at least we all know when it’s coming. Mark your calendars.
From the press release:
Coming up with EFIGS subtitles and Japanese Voice-Over, the upcoming Tales of Hearts R will reveal its depth on November 14th, 2014.
Here what Hideo Baba has to say about this good news to his dearest fans:
“I am very happy to announce Tales of Hearts R’s release date at the biggest Japanese culture event in the West! It is very fitting to do so, as it contains the original Japanese voice overs! I have enjoyed a lot traveling around Europe to promote the Tales of Series in many countries, and it is my pleasure to come back to Japan Expo and celebrate Tales of with the fans. I hope the fans keep enjoying our efforts to constantly translate the game in many languages, and have fun discovering the journey of Kor Meteor, Kohaku Hearts, and all of their friends in Tales of Hearts R. Let’s get excited for the future of Tales of together!”
As a reminder; Tales of Hearts R follows the story of Kor Meteor, a brave young man living in a small village by the sea, as he sharpens his fighting skills under the watchful eye of his grandfather. Impressed with Kor’s growing skill, his grandfather bequeaths to him a special type of weapon known as a Soma. Soma users must possess exceptionally strong Spiria, the source of all life from which the human mind and will are derived.
