    Earlier this week there was a leaked scan detailing the new Rave system in Tales of Innocence R. Another new scan has been released which shows an eighth new character to the already revealed seven characters (including QQ) along with the game's release date.

    According to Namco Bandai the R in the title means "re-imagining", not remake like some had previously thought. Tales of Innocence R will include a revised game theme, a new battle system and a new gameplay system alongside a new opening movie.

    The new character, Conway Tau, is a male and is voiced by Nojima Kenji. The scan also reveals that the game will be released on January 26, 2012 in Japan.

    As expected, no word on a North American or European release has been currently announced.

    Personally I'm disappointed at how the Vita is just giving new life to older games.

    Tales has a rather large fanbase in Japan.

    He looks like a mesh of a few previous character designs to me :/

    But this really should not be seen as a remake, or a rehash of the DS game, as it is meant to be a re imagining... then again how different could it be >_

    Idk, they just decide to switch Tale of games on us. ps2->3ds ds-> psv
    I guess to spread around Tales games to people who most likely didn't play a certain one. :unsure:

    Probably broader audiences. We have our Sony divisions and our 3DS divisions. Why would you port a DS game to the 3DS when they can just buy the DS game? Or why port a PS2 game to the Vita when you can just buy the PS2 game (also, with the possibility of a PS2 Classics thing, it could easily be on the Vita in another way)? It's just spreading the love I guess.

    Surely you guys have realised how the Sony versions of Tales games are superior to other console versions. (Debateable with TotA)
    I think it safe to say, for now, Tales Studio are Sony-fanboys :P

    I beg to debate in regards to symphonia, but w/e.

    But that is, sadly, how tales studio rolls. They loves their sony products to the point where if a game is on a non sony product you can almost expect it be ported eventually.

    Looks like Rubia on the first look...

    I don't need R thing whatever. I need Radiant Mythology 2 and 3 localized or another new Tales game.

    Really?
    I think the PS2 version was superior. The load times were longer but not as bad as the GC version. And the frame rate difference wasn't really a big deal IMO. Also, the fact you can fight Kratos, Yuan and Mithos at the same time sounds epic. (never got around to it because my cousin took her PS2 back)

    What's wrong with androgynous characters? Not every male character has to be a testosterone filled muscle head.

    And not every character has to have questionable gender. They don't have to be a goddamn Space Marine but they should at least represent their gender. Unless of course it's a big "Oh Japan" (taking it from prowler_!) moment where they have quirky flamboyant characters.

    It's really simple why this is on Vita: They wanted to do an Tales of on both handhelds.

    BTW, for your curiosity, Tales sells better on Sony platforms.
