Namco Bandai will release Tales of Hearts R on March 7 and if you pick it up at launch you’ll get two games. First print copies include a code to download Tales of Hearts R Infinite Evolve, a 2D action RPG. Infinite Evolve has "infinite evolution 2D action RPG" listed as its genre.


Tales of Hearts R will be sold as a standalone game, but if you want bonus items check out the Tales of Hearts R Link Edition bundle. This includes a clock and some PlayStation Vita accessories for 9,980 yen ($120).

    And watch as the free ‘2d’ action RPG plays like the original ToH…

    • Ephidiel

      but with highdefinition Sprites

  • Scratch90

    I’m kinda out of the loop with the update, so uhh..is this the localized version or the Japan version?

    Also lol Spencer that pic (the damage I mean)

    • Barrylocke89

      Japan version. There hasn’t been a localized version announced, or I would know.

      Oooohhh I’d know…

      • xavier axol

        i’m kinda hopeful that it will come to the states, i don’t have any proof that it will. but it just feels like it might.

        • Barrylocke89

          Personally I can see it going either way. On one hand, Namco has certainly proven to want to give the series another chance in the west with Graces F and Xillia.

          But on the other hand, this is a handheld release. Sure, Tales of the Abyss on the 3DS was also a handheld release, but that game at least had the advantage of having already been voiced and localized. Tales of Hearts R would be a new project, and would require more money to bring it over. I don’t know the state of affairs with Namco, but this would be a bigger risk for them to take than TotA 3DS was, especially since the Vita still seems to be doing pretty sluggish with sales.

      Damage? It’s over 9000 alright.

    • Nyandroid

      If you notice, at the top of the article it always says for which region. So this is for Japan.

  • Oh great… I wonder what Tales team will work up next?

    Hope 2013 will be a great year for RPG on both PS3 and Vita.

    • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

      More than likely “Tales of Tempest R” for the Vita, if this remake trend is anything to go on.
      The next PS3 Tales is anyone’s guess…

      Unlike the trolling they did when announcing Xillia 2, I doubt they’ll make sequel to other mothership titles anytime soon. Then again weirder things have happened.

      • ZEROthefirst

        If they do make a Tempest R, hopefully it’ll dignify itself from it’s past mistake… you know the one on the DS that doesn’t really exsist?

  • Andrew Arndt

    there still hope for them at least in my eyes

  • sakusakusakura_nyo

    It comes with a clock?!

    • gk2012

      I’m guessing it’s just a digital clock for the Vita.

  • Eheh, NB is awesome. So, not only are you getting what is perhaps one of the best Vita games, you’re also getting a brand new RPG for free with your main purchase.

    Yeah, I might just have to import this.

  • refrain

    Another Tales of Wall Breaker-like game?

    • Hidayat246

      tales of what???? -_-a

      • refrain

        Tales of Wall Breaker. A 2D game coming with Tales of VS before.

  • Tales_of_Master

    March next year is going to be a busy month. Here is hoping that NB localize the game this time around. I’d defiantly buy it again.

  • ZEROthefirst

    Oh come on, I already know I’m going broke early next year for MGR, FE Awakening, MH3U, possibly GE2 if it comes out before March, and now this. I need to take out a loan lol

  • I’m very reluctant not to order it, if I say so myself. Ideally, I like to wait for it when it gets localized and all, but the whole first order – you get a 2D action RPG free… omg. Is there no possible way to get it without Tales of Hearts R ?

  • I’m still getting into the Tales series as a whole, as I did enjoy Graces f, my first localized title. I also LOVE Tales of Rebirth, so I’m hoping that it too gets a reimagining for the PS Vita.

  • Lester Paredes

    At this point, I’ll take any RPG for the Vita. Hope it comes out Stateside. Aside from Ragnarok and P4 the Golden, there’s nothing new. Sigh. Just gives me time to play the PSP/Ps1 RPG’s i never beat, i guess.

  • Leafia133

    I hope it comes out in the west and Europe
