Famitsu has an interview with Tales of Graces producer Hideo Baba and he explained how Tales of Graces F got started. "After the release of the Wii version, an exceedingly high number of comments wanted for a PS3 port," Baba said.
These comments came from online surveys, which Namco Bandai opens a week after a game launches. Surveys stay up for roughly two months. For example, a Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon X survey is scheduled to start on August 5 and will run until October 11. The Tales of Graces survey ran from December 10 to February 14, 2010.
Development of the PlayStation 3 port started this past February.
Tales of Graces F is slated for release this winter. The PlayStation 3 version adds new battle techniques, costumes for Sophie, and a brand new Genealogy of the Future storyline that takes place after the events of Tales of Graces.
