QUOTE said:Having to wait months and months for your favorite Japanese RPG titles to make the trip across the Pacific may be annoying. But there are occasional advantages.
One of those advantages showed today as Namco Bandai's Japanese parent announced a recall of Tales of Graces. The Wii RPG was released in December of last year and was found by many fans to be a buggy mess, particularly on a second play through.
While the game's issues have been known since last year, Namco Bandai waited until today to make official comment. It apologized to fans and promised to improve quality control in the future.
Japan-based players will be able to swap their current Tales of Graces disc with a new disc that fixes ten glaring bugs. Timing for the swap will be announced in the near future.
The swap will be done via the mail, with a delivery person handing over the new disc in exchange for the old one. Importers, this probably means you're out of luck. But for those who are waiting for a domestic release for Graces, you can probably expect the bug free code.
Hm, feels like someone was rushing this release...
