Join The Clamor To Bring Tales Of Vesperia PS3 To The US
These days, there are more and more RPGs exclusive to the PlayStation 3 (thanks to publishers like Atlus and NIS America) but early on this generation, many JRPGs only released for the Xbox 360 (Lost Odyssey, Tales of Vesperia, Blue Dragon, etc.).
But one of those, Tales of Vesperia, actually was made for the PS3...only it never broke Japanese borders. All this time, role-playing aficionados have been hoping Namco Bandai would bring it to the US and for a while, it was even semi-confirmed. But for whatever reason, it never happened. It's unfortunate, too, because according to reviews, it was a damn fine RPG. Perhaps the publisher only needs a little push in the right direction, though- if you want to join the many voices clamoring for Vesperia to arrive stateside, head on over to the PlayStation Blog and add your voice to the mix. With enough support, the publisher might just take the chance and bring it over; for the record, though, it has been available on the 360 for nearly two years, so perhaps Namco Bandai has forgotten all about it. They're also focused on delivering the new Ace Combat: Assault Horizon but really, how hard would it be to localize that PS3 version? Shouldn't take that long.
There are quite a few RPGs on store shelves these days, but there aren't many like Tales of Vesperia, which is why we'd love to see it for the PS3 in North America.
