Tales of Vesperia Isn’t Part Of An Xbox 360 Exclusivity Deal After All

Recommended Videos

If you want to play Tales of Vesperia in English, you’ll have to play it on an Xbox 360. While the Namco Bandai RPG was later ported to the PlayStation 3 in Japan, this version of the game hasn’t been released overseas.

 

In April, a Namco Bandai community manager stated that the reason Tales of Vesperia hasn’t seen a PlayStation 3 release outside Japan was due to an exclusivity contract between Namco and Microsoft. This information, she revealed earlier today, is apparently not true.

 

Her full response is as follows:

 

“A few months ago I replied to a fan who asked me why Tales of Vesperia wasn’t localized in Europe on my Facebook page. I replied that it was because of a Microsoft exclusivity, thinking that that was the reason why, even though I didn’t have any official information on that.

 

I was wrong to do so, and sadly my reply was relayed on many websites, thus sharing a false information to fans around the web.

 

I would like to send my sincere apologies to all the Tales Series fans I have wrongly informed, and Microsoft & Namco Bandai for any damage that might have been caused with this.”

 

Namco Bandai have two Tales games slated for release overseas at present. Tales of the Abyss will release on the Nintendo 3DS this year, while Tales of Graces f on the PlayStation 3 will follow sometime in 2012.
