Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition Coming to Consoles This Year!

Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition may have been revealed during Microsoft's E3 conference but Bandai Namco has announced that it's coming to the Switch as well.

Tales of Vesperia launched initially so many years ago on the Xbox 360, then an updated version, considered the definitive version by the community, released exclusively in Japan on the PlayStation 3 further down the line.

If you had told us that a Tales of Vesperia remaster would be coming this year, we'd probably have laughed and then cried. Look for Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition, this winter. In the succeeding events, Yuri finds himself in the middle of a wicked plot that threatens to destroy the whole planet.

The game uses a specialised version of the series' Linear Motion Battle System for combat. You take control of one character and tweak the AI of three others to fight enemies. Players can swap between the four characters at any time during battles and can perform both physical and Mystic Artes attacks. Previously, the latest entry in the Tales series, Tales of Berseria, came to PlayStation 4 in January 2017. After all, it's a decade old remake of a Japanese role playing game, albeit with a handful of never-before-seen-in-the-West extras thrown in.

As for a release window, Namco would only commit to "Winter 2018". The franchise has shipped over 16 million games.
