Tales of Vesperia and Tales of Vs. connect to each other, sort of. First print runs of both games come with codes to unlock special content.
Tales of Vs., which comes out on August 6, has a DLC code that lets PlayStation 3 owners download extra skits for Tales of Vesperia. Namco Bandai has not announced any plans to release the extra skits as paid or free DLC at a later date.
When the PlayStation 3 version of Tales of Vesperia arrives in stores on September 17 it comes with a battle code for Tales of Vs. Players can challenge Yuri, the protagonist of Tales of Vesperia, to a fight with special weapons as the prize. Reserve Tales of Vesperia and you get another code to get Tales of Abyss style costumes.
The PlayStation 3 version of Tales of Vesperia has new gigant monsters, but as of now only Japanese gamers will face this fellow. Namco Bandai has not announced any plans to publish Tales of Vesperia on PS3 outside of Japan… yet.
