Tales of Hearts R Release Comes Closer With New Scans and System Video

by Melissa

The newest Tales of Hearts R update shows off a system video detailing the vast variety of Soma Equipment in the game. Brand new magazine scans and screenshots from Famitsu have confirmed the appearance of Pascal and Hubert Oswell as fightable in the arena battles. Subevents and minigames were also announced as well.

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.

Details on new costumes are also pictured in the scans. Shing and Kohak's swimsuit costumes and Sony Toro and Kuro costumes for Pascal and Hubert respectively to ware in their arena battle. They can also be fought in their normal costumes if cat costumes aren't your thing.

Tales of Hearts R will be released on March 7 in Japan. No word on an North American or European release has been announced.
