    - The complete English Patch of the game is halted, due to the official localisation of the game (Tales of Graces f), as you can see here : http://talesofgraces.com/ ;
    - The partial Menu Patch (http://tales.namco.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=84338) was stopped because the English Patch above was in the work, and also because the PS3 game was released ;
    - A Spanish team is working currently on a complete patch in Spanish, but it is mostly on the piracy side.

    If you have a PS3, just buy the game and support Namco for future localizations of the Tales series. That's all I can say.

    Maybe someone will eventually move the English text from the English PS3 cpk file to the JPN Wii cpk file?
    Something similar did happen with YS 6 and Akumajo Dracula Chi no Rondo (PC Engine Castlevania)
    So it's definitely possible (google for PS ToG Undub to get the tools to open the cpk file, and the menu patch was pulled off with just hex-editing).

    I don't understand how the Spanish patch is more "illegal" than regular (not the above) fan-translations; They are going for a re-translation plus dual language, NOT using the PS3 localization script.

    Well I don't really foresee myself buying a PS3 just to play this one game. If someone with the know how can pull the files from the ps3 game and put them on the wii game, that'd be great...

    You're better off just buying a PS3 since Tales of Xillia is also coming (and probably Xillia 2) which are both apparently the best Tales games in the entire series.

    The ps3 version has an extended storyline that really ties things up a lot better than the wii version does anyway, so I'd highly recommend just going with that someday down the road when ps3s are phased out and dirt cheap, since a full translation will probably never come to be.

    The extended storyline isn't really an argument to choose the PS3 version over the Wii version since it feels so... tackled on (it is even a separate game mode in the menu) aside from making a certain character (who leaves for plot relevant reason for most of the main arc) playable for more time and confirming a pairing that was hinted anyways in the Wii version FMV ending cutscene. I mean really, an additional dungeon with the final boss battle plot devices from the main arc repeated all over again? It's nowhere near the Vesperia PS3 additions, maybe 1/8th of the main arc Wii additions.

    I'd rather choose the PS3 version since it improves some design choices (EXP!), and ... for the DLC costumes maybe?
    But the Wii game (the bugfixed version, that is) is a beast in its own right. It's one of the best games in the Wii library, that's for sure.

    I doubt they are better than Abyss and Symphonia.

    Why? They've gotten better reviews and they've also sold more than any other Tales game. I'll reserve judgment until I actually play them but from what I've seen they certainly seem like they are up there at least.

    Plus Tales of Symphonia is also getting a PS3 remaster.

    It is not, developer just deny it from coming out.

    Beside Tales series there is also a lot of RPG games from PS3 you are missing out. RPG fan should not miss out on PS3.

    You really ought to get a PS3, not only for Tales of Graces F (extended story really ties up the loose end in Wii version and adds about 50% more gameplay time), but also for other good games such as Valkyria Chronicles etc.

    If someone will have any info on English version for the Wii, send me a Private Massage, I wish someone will make Wii version in English, I might have PS3 eventually one day (or I might not, it all depends) but until that time comes a lot of years will pass (and I am not saying like 2 year, probably 4~5 but I really don't have and don't see any reason to buy PS3 looking at it's game library that interests me...) and I would like to play this on my Wii before that.

    So let me get this straight. On one hand you say you want to play Tales of Graces on the Wii because the PS3 doesn't have any interesting games and on the other hand you fail to realize that the PS3 has Tales of Graces F, Tales of Xilia and soon Tales of Vesperia and Tales of Xilia 2, the games you actually want to play. You seem to be quite an ignoramus.
