As previously reported, Venus & Braves has twenty Tales cameos. Philia (Destiny), Tears (Abyss), Cress, Mint (both from Phantasia), as well as Asbel and Sophie from Tales of Graces are in the PSP game.
You can see all of the Tales cameos in a new mode called Braves Legend mode, which is unlocked by completing the game. Braves Legend mode also has variations on three events. Venus & Braves on PSP also has three difficulty levels (easy/normal/hard) and the ability to save whenever you visit a town.
There is one more way to to access Braves Legend mode… you can download and play the Venus & Braves demo. Dengeki Online says they will post it today. The demo takes place at the beginning of the game and has Braves Legend mode unlocked. It’s possible to import a save file from the demo into the retail game. Do this and you can start Venus & Braves with Braves Legend mode unlocked too.
Dengeki says the demo has ten hours of gameplay, making it one of the meatier PSP demos out there. Venus & Braves is slated to come out on January 20, 2011.
Update: Dengeki posted the demo. You can grab it from this page. Or use this link to get straight to the file. Once you download it you need to copy it to your Memory Stick in a folder named “NPJH90132”. Enjoy!
