What’s New In Tales Of Hearts R, It’s Not Just 3D Graphics



The "R" in Tales of Hearts R stands for re-imagining and Namco Bandai made a bunch of changes when bringing the game to PlayStation Vita. On the presentation side, Tales of Hearts R has 3D models instead of sprites and full voice acting for the main story. Namco Bandai also made over 10 new anime event scenes for the PlayStation Vita version.


Battles are in 3D too. Tales of Hearts R has a new system where you can chase enemies in the air and keep your combo going.
