No Ligers Here (Sorry Tear), But There Are English Tales Of The Abyss 3DS Screens

By Spencer . August 17, 2011 . 3:40pm

Luke_Van_00_sNamco Bandai sent over a bunch of English screenshots and videos of Tales of the Abyss. No, not the PlayStation 2 game, the Nintendo 3DS version. Europe gets Tales of the Abyss for the first time later this year. Tales of the Abyss for 3DS will also come out in North America, but Namco Bandai has not set a release date.

  • Whoever did them trailers need to fucking learn.

    • Seconded. Who’s fucking bright idea was it to make videos like that. You can’t SEE anything when you show both screens.Not to mention you need to turn up your volume to ridiculous level just to hear anything. Have some common sense. Oh wait, this is bloody NAMCO.

      • Suicunesol

        Play the videos at 720p at fullscreen. The way they’re meant to be seen.

        • That’s doesn’t solve the sound issue and it doesn’t make the display that much better.

          • It’s just the first video to have that problem. The second one doesn’t have any sound issue.

      Freakin loved that show.

    • LynxAmali

      Well played, well played indeed.

  • MrRobbyM

    Apparently Bamco has super hearing abilities.

    Well I’m glad they’re at least promoting the game now, but um…I think its success still lies mostly in the hands of the fans. Word of mouth might be all that can help us now, so spread it around.

  • XypherCode

    day 1 for me :D

  • Shinji Kazuya

    Awsome! Can’t wait!

  • I’m so thrilled to be able to play this game on the go! Day one purchase for me.

    After months of agonizing (ok, not really) waiting, I’m looking forward to this as my first 3DS game cartridge.

    If Namco wants more of my money, they should also port the PS2 version of Tales of Symphonia that never made it out of Japan to the 3DS.

    • It’s playable on the Gamecube-compatible Wii… And you’re missing out on a lot if you haven’t done so by now. :)

      • meat0bun

        I didn’t know the Wii can play PS2 games. :P

        But in all seriousness, you must be mistaking the Gamecube ToS (which I have played and loved way too much, my fav RPG) with the rereleased Japan-only PS2 version which has bonus features like new side-quests and customizable costumes.

  • Spence shouldn’t it have a USA flag instead of a JPN flag?

  • Ian

    Okay that was a weird trailer the only i heard is pegi 12? wut?
    and where is THE DATE? and Where is ToG:F??

    • In many japanese stores

    • Shinji Kazuya

      If you’re a Graces f fan you should know by now that it will come out in the summer of 2012. Or so they say.

  • this is such a great game in the series

  • Oni123

    Can’t wait for this! EU never got the ps2 version =/ but hey better late than never!

  • It’s the English language version right? None of skits were voiced…there were a lot of skits in that game. That’s a lot of silence. Unless we get the Japanese voices, which we won’t

    • Yeah and I was kinda hoping they would go back and dub them, especially with the date pushed back, but it doesn’t seem they will, probably mostly for monetary reasons.  Ah well, still looking forward to the  release.

    • Apparently, a 3DS cartridge can hold up to 8Gb of data. The game could have easily contained both the English and the Japanese voice tracks. It’s clear that this is a financial decision. 

  • I wish this would come sooner rather than later in NA. The 3DS needs games. 

  • “Overlimits”, wow, Namco got pretty lazy there. Says “Over Limit” in the English PS2 version, looks like they didn’t bother editing the graphic this time around from the Japanese game.

    “No, not the Playstation 2 game …”

    Coulda fooled me. And no, I’m not praising it either – Abyss wasn’t exactly the prettiest game on the PS2, and the jump to the 3DS proves it hasn’t aged well.

    But don’t get me wrong here, I’m not judging Abyss by its graphics alone. It is, by all accounts, a fantastic game (my favourite Tales game, as a matter of fact), but I’d have liked to see, I dunno, higher res models and/or textures. It isn’t as though the 3DS isn’t capable of rendering near-Wii quality games. Just look at MGS and Resident Evil: Revelations.
