Tales Of Hearts R Announced

by Shawn

After Tales of Innocence R's release earlier this year in Japan on the PlayStation Vita, players came across a secret dungeon which dropped some hints towards a possibly R-style remake of Tales of Hearts and Tales of the Tempest. It appears the first one has come to pass as Namco Bandai has announced their plans for Tales of Hearts R.

Tales of Hearts R, like Tales of Innocence R, is a re-imagining of its source material but this time in a fully 3D-based world. The battle system now takes place in 3D, although a new "chase link" system has been implemented which keeps the aerial attack mechanics from the original Nintendo DS version intact as players can chase after enemies when they are launched into the air.

Calcedny is also playable this time around as a party member after previously being an NPC in the Nintendo DS version. Production I.G. will be taking care of the anime cutscenes again.

Tales of Hearts R will be released in Spring 2013 in Japan. No word on an North American or European release has been announced.
