Bandai Namco accounted the confirmed release date for the much-anticipated Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition.
The game will be launching on January 11, 2019, for the PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.
Tales of Vesperia is a JRPG that features emotional plot twists and a winding storyline. The game is known for its cast of memorable characters and real-time combat system.
The Definitive Edition will be updated with full HD graphics, new music tracks, mini-games, bosses, and unreleased costume DLC. The game was first released back on the Xbox 360 and is considered to be one of the best Tales games released by Bandai Namco- of all time. Tales of Symphonia and Tales of the Abyss are other two contenders within the community.
The Definitive Edition isn’t a remake by any means. But it’s packed full of features and characters, events, and new content that was never released outside of its Japan release. The game will also feature higher resolution to match today’s modern console outputs.
Bandai Namco also announced an new Anniversary Bundle which includes some special, exclusive collectibles including Yuri Lowell, Patty Fleur, Flynn, Scifo, and Repede for PS4, Xbox One, and PC editions. The Anniversary Bundle is only available through the official store. Details are yet to be released other than some speculative rumors.
