Venus & Braves Trailer Gives Us A Look At The Tales Cameos

By Spencer . November 27, 2010 . 1:58pm

Strategy RPG Venus & Braves is coming to PSP with a few additions. The main feature Namco Bandai keeps touting are cameos from the Tales series.


This trailer shows Yuri from Tales of Vesperia and Leon from Tales of Destiny in event scenes from Venus & Braves. There are silhouettes of the twenty Tales characters too, just in case anyone wants to spoil Namco Bandai’s reveals.



The rest of the trailer you can experience for yourself. There’s a demo with ten hours of gameplay ready for you to download here.

    Looks pretty nice. Too bad it won’t be localized.

    • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

      Could- Why- It’s not like- But- Stop and- Did you… *throw hands up in air*

      You’re right.

      • Fonic

        Hope I’m wrong and all, but well, you know…

  • Way to be lazy Namco Bandai. Didn’t even bother matching the Tales character portraits with the game’s art style. >8[


    • Hraesvelgr

      Yeah, the Tales portraits look pretty terrible for this game.

    • Masengan

      I think I heard someone say they even used Tales of VS cut-ins.

  • shion16

    “tales of vs” copy paste

  • malek86

    They make it feel like people would only be interested in this game because of the Tales characters.

    It’s kinda sad, when you think about it.

    • neocatzon

      from the trailer the gameplay looks great and gotta love the simulation part but, why they include the tales of character? Namdai really loves their tales of, huh?

      • Joanna

        The way I see it is Namco like crossovers. Graces F has so many anime crossovers….and DLC. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn there are some Tales characters as DLC.

  • This was going to be localized, until they said tales of characters would be here T.TAnd wtf, lol the images dont match at all, they could at least put the tales of character’s color less vivid…

  • SanityCrisis

    Yuri, Tear, Sophie, Presea, Mint, Natalia, Suzu, Luke, Raven, Lloyd, Genis, Colette, Estelle, Leon, Kyle, Kratos, Asbel… those are the ones I caught. I might be wrong. Anyway.

    I don’t think I’ll be paying attention to this game. Like everyone’s pointed out, the portraits don’t match and the cameos seem kind of… pointless? If that’s what their selling point is, that’s pretty sad.

    • Exkaiser

      It’s a shame. The game itself seems pretty alright, but they’re really pushing these half-assed cameos. It’s almost as if they don’t even care about selling the game but just want to sell more Tales merchandise.

    • wait!, but the game itself is pretty good, just forget about the cameos -.-; , i cant belive people will just stop paying attention to the game just for this fiasco

    • But the game itself looks pretty solid. Even if the cameos don’t mesh with the game why not give the game itself a look over? The gameplay, story, and characters look good.

  • Roanoke834

    Is the guy in green Link from Zelda? The katakana even says Rinka…

  • ForeverFidelis

    A ten hour demo?

  • Dimentionalist

    *weeps openly into his handkerchief*

  • So much style clash with the Tales characters.
