    A new trailer was released today at Anime Expo, for Bandai Namco's upcoming definitive version of Tales of Vesperia. Not much new information was given, but the video shows off some of the content from the PS3 version of the game that never made it to the west. The game is still set for a release this Winter, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. An official description from Bandai Namco is noted below.

    I'm on the edge about getting this. I already own an original version for the 360, but actually only played about 10 hours and didn't find myself getting sucked into it as much as other Tales games.

    On the other hand, better graphics, new content, as well as on the go thanks to the Switch.... Hmmmm....

    The PS3 version of Vesperia is absolutely one of, if not the, greatest Tales game of all time.
    NAY
    Perhaps even the greatest game ever. +A+
    So long as the port lives up to quality standards, it would be an absolute crime to oneself not to play this game.

    So they put a Klonoa and MR.Driller Costume in the game, but don't make a new game? Why Namco? :teach:

    I was originally leaning toward PC, but bamco can't quite grasp what makes a PC game good. So, I'm torn between Xbox One/X and Switch. Hm.

    My fiancee and I liked Vesperia. Wish they'd give us Xillia 1 & 2. I know it wasn't as well received, but the battle system in those games are without a doubt my favorite.

    Did the PS3 version include a way to retry the secret missions for bosses without having to commit to another entire playthrough?

    I was feeling the same about it too and also only got around 10hrs gameplay, but now that I think about it, I was so distracted by trying to get the achievements on the XB360 version that I didn't get to enjoy the game properly.

    I will definitely be picking this up for Switch. ^^ Hopefully it will engross me enough to finish it this time.

    Only interested because of Switch release. I hate sitting at home in the same spot for hours. These games are better on portable devices.

    A little sad i'll have to put up with Patty, but i'm still happy we're getting Vesperia on modern consoles. Easily the best Tales game.

    I hope they lower the achievement/trophy difficulty. It was insane for the PS3 version.

    Was it? I remember it being more time-consuming than outright difficult. There weren't a lot of skill-based achievements, more simple "fill in the whole map/item book/monster book/all save points/etc." type things. Well, there is the speedrun achievement, but that's so loose with its requirements I thought it was basically nothing at all. My first try was 4h24m, and I accidentally wasted a lot of time. >.> The secret missions could probably be considered skill-based, but those can be replayed infinitely. Overall, I'd say I hope they don't touch the trophies as they are right now.
