Namco: We're Working On US Tales Releases

PS3WiiPSPDS by Shawn

Since the release of Tales of Vesperia on the Xbox 360, which was followed by a Japan-only release of a Director's Cut version of the game on the PS3 which appeared to have been in the works from the beginning, as well as a plethora of Japan-only titles in the series, many have wondered if the company still cared about the series in North America and Europe. Namco Bandai has just made a statement on their official Facebook page about just that.

Earlier today, after receiving numerous fan posts on their Facebook page, as well on other social media websites such as Twitter and YouTube, the latter of which was likely the cause of their comments section being disabled, the company finally responded to their fans with the following statement:

Firstly, thank you all for your excitement around the series. We also love the series here at Namco of America and are working with our Japan counterparts to determine if we'll see US releases for these games. Unfortunately, we don't currently have any plans to bring Tales of Graces to the US. If this changes, we'll let you know as soon as we can!

While the company didn't announce any releases in this statement, it does correspond with a topic on the popular gaming website GameFAQs, in which a PR representative for the company stated that the company "knew (English) Tales fans have been screwed over the years".

One can hope that this move means the company is aware of the fan base and is trying to work on bringing more titles in the series over to North America and Europe. Such methods, such as a recent post on Sony's PlayStation.Blog Share, which can be found here, have sprung up recently, so hopefully this is a sign the series, even with its financial difficulties, won't stay Japan-only in the near future.
