Tales of the Expected
Bandai Namco has proudly announced that Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition has passed the one million sales milestone. The 2019 remaster of the Xbox 360 and PS3 release is available to purchase on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
As a quick refresher, Tales of Vesperia is the story of an ex-Imperial Soldier named Yuri Lowell, who forms their own rebellious party – The Brave Vesperia – in order to aid a noblewoman in need named Estelle. Like many rollicking anime RPGs of its kind, Tales of Vesperia features city-hopping quests, a wide cast of colorful heroes and villains, some class war, some pathos, and even a little romance. Vesperia was praised at launch for revitalizing the Tales series, with some critics calling it the series’ best entry yet.
Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition was released to celebrate the fantasy RPG’s 10th anniversary. Featuring upgraded visuals, English and Japanese voicetracks, and all of the DLC from previous iterations of the game, (including some rare Japan-only content), the Definitive Edition is, as the name suggests, a great way for new players to experience this classic adventure for the first time, as well as an enjoyable revisit for long-time fans.
