It appears Namco Bandai has a remake of Venus & Braves in the works. The original work, a PlayStation 2 tactical RPG, was designed with an interesting permadeath system. While the main character was immortal, his party members would age and eventually pass on.
Multiple blogs claim Dengeki PlayStation broke the story about the Venus & Braves PSP remake. Reports state there will be a great number of differences including Tales cameos. Collette from Tales of Symphonia, Yuri from Tales of Vesperia, and Leon from Tales of Destiny are said to be in the game.
Scans supporting the news have not been released, though. We’re searching for ’em to confirm.
