    Well I just went to the official Tales of Graces F site and finally Namco Bandai has filled up the empty fields. It says it's coming exclusively for Playstation 3. There have also been some HD screenshots uploaded. Release is scheduled for 2012.

    And so, Wii users are completely left in the dark.

    Did anyone really expect them to port "f" to the Wii? I mean come on, that seems like a bit much imo.

    Oh well, at least it'll look prettier here. I would actually prefer the higher graphics in this case.

    If it wasn't released for the Wii in Japan in the first place, there was no reason for them to make it.

    If they didn't do it for Japan, why would anyone expect Bamco to do it over here? Why put extra money into a franchise that hasn't been state side for almost 4 years?

    Pretty lazy of them to put up screenshots in Japanese.

    Also lazy of them that they only just now started translating when they announced it 3 months ago.

    Well at least they could localize the original Graces for Wii since they are translating the script.

    People should never expect the US to get a superior (Even if slightly) version over Japan when it comes to video games. Although it has happened before (Dissidia for some time until they released Universal Tuning, Tales of Symphonia DotnW with the added feature to import a completed save from the original ToS, TWEWY with a few additional music tracks and some others I may have forgotten), a majority of the time Japan will either have the better version of a game or we'd only get the good version of their game, like this one for example.

    Always Japanese get the best stuff, times like these I wish I could learn it. I know it's possible online but that's crap, I want Japanese lessons lol. Anyways, not coming for any console except PS3?? Oh great, give it an online support and watch PSN fans rage when Anonymous attacks, oh the lovely future.

    Tales of the Abyss had more artes and extra stuff in it then the Japanese version.

    That's the version they are getting for the 3DS.

    Disappointing but not surprising. From the point of view of a Bamco employee: "Why should we do extra work to update a Wii version that will sell less?"

    If F was released as an updated version of the Wii game in Japan, then yeah I can see them translating it, but otherwise, not so much.

    Let me ask you this. How exactly would you advertise something like that? They wouldn't be able to hide the fact that the PS3 really is the superior version with new content, and if people know that the PS3 version has so much more stuff, why would people bother buying the Wii version except for the fact that they only have a Wii? At least for other multiplatform games, the developers try to make the Wii version close enough to the 360/PS3 version. But in this case, it's not a close argument.

    You couldn't serious expect them to port this to the Wii. The PS3 version is by far superior, plus they would have to spend extra money trying to port it to the Wii. Why would Namco Bandai do that, it makes no sense financial wise.

    I don't see the point of localizing a game if they don't localize all ports of the game, too. I mean, if the Wii was already outdated and a newer Nintendo console was released, I would understand, but...

    Seriously, Namco Bandai? You've just done something equivalent to shooting yourself in the foot twelve times.

    There's really no point to localizing ToGWii without adding the content from ToGF to it and they aren't gonna do that so oh well.
