Namco Bandai hasn’t announced it, but Computeruniverse.net says a localized version of Tales of Vesperia for PS3 is coming to Germany. In fact, they’re taking reservations for it.
This is the first I’ve heard of Computeruniverse so I contacted them to make sure this wasn’t a misprint. A customer service rep got back to me with, “This is really the version for the PS3, but unfortunately we can not estimate the delivery date at this moment.”
Time for cautious optimism? While this confirmation may not be convincing, I don’t think Namco Bandai will pass on publishing the PlayStation 3 version since it’s mostly localized. All they need to do is find a voice actress for Patty and they’re set to go.
Thanks for the tip TheCleaningGuy!
