Namco Bandai released new clips of Tales of Hearts R’s battle system. Watch Shing juggle an enemy soldier and Amber make a cone of fire erupt from the ground.


The battle system has been completely redesigned for PlayStation Vita with air combos, aerial chase moves, and partner attacks. Tales of Hearts R is slated for spring 2013 in Japan.

    Those graphics look amazing. It’s the kind of game you wait until weekend to play in a dark room with a maxed out bright screen.

      o_O A little strange but yes you do………i guess

  • Tales_of_Master

    Yup, Shing is still a combo machine…or maybe I should say a Combofiend :D Ehm. anyway I don’t think that the game could look any better at this point. The Graphics got a noticeable upgrade from Tales of Innocence R, and the gameplay is as fast paced as ever.

    I’m torn between getting the Japanese version, or waiting and hoping for a U.S. version. Hopefully Baba wasn’t just teasing us when he said that ToH should be localized.

  • Good lord, that game looks gorgeous. And fun. That bear didn’t stand a chance. Baba…so help me god if you don’t somehow influence a localization there WILL be hell to pay. Hell I tell you! HELL!! *flees*

  • Yuriangels

  • MrTyrant

    PETA: “This game is awful, it has no respect for animal such as that poor bear, why don’t let you control the bear? why it has to be killed that way? why the game is popular when you fight wild animals instead of let them be free?”

    Crap. I shouldn’t give them ideas.

  • Syn

    And with these videos (first one specifically), I am officially hell bent on getting this, I love me some flashy finishers (^_^)v

  • LightZero

    I can’t say I like that they put TP into the game, but the battle system look very fun and fast paced exactly how I like it. Every time I watch Shing I keep thinking of Sora from KH. Then again they do have the same VA.
