When Tale of the Last Promise goes up for download purchase on the PlayStation Network next week, some may be surprised at how quickly the download completes; Imageepoch say that the full game is only 250 MB in size.
Addressing the subject, Imageepoch president, Ryoei Mikage, pointed out in his Twitter feed that a smaller file size doesn’t necessarily indicate the scale of the game. Mikage says that it’s possible to keep file sizes low through polygon and texture compression. What really matters is the amount of data on the screen at any given moment.
Tales of the Last Promise is releasing in Japan on April 28th. Mikage says on Twitter that the game is already sold out at Amazon.jp. Mikage hopes that Imageepoch can sell 150,000 units of Tale of the Last Promise.
