Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition, a remaster of the well-liked 2008 RPG, was officially announced at the Xbox E3 2018 Press Conference, but it's coming to every other major platform as well. Best of all, it will be on Nintendo Switch, making it portable for the first time.
Bandai Namco announced the platforms in a press release after the news was leaked by the publisher's Brazil Twitter account. It confirmed that Tales of Vesperia will be on Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Switch, and will feature upscaled screen resolution, new characters, events, and content formerly exclusive to Japan. The two new characters are Patty Fleur, an amnesiac pirate, and Flyn Scifo, the best frend of main character Yuri.
Like the rest of the sprawling Tales series, Vesperia is notable for its light action-driven combat, charming vignettes, and anime aesthetic. It is generally regarded as one of the better games in the series, being the entry point for many older fans of the series. While arguably not as deep as some of the later entries in the series, it has lovely graphics and a likable cast, and it's an enjoyable old-school RPG. One of its characters also happens to be a dog smoking a pipe, which is even better.
First released back in 2008, Tales of Vesperia was initially exclusive to the Xbox 360 before eventually making its way to Japan. It was part of a broader push by Microsoft to get the Xbox 360 to catch on across the Pacific; but alas, it failed.
Ten years on, Tales of Vesperia is being re-released for a new generation, and it's hard to imagine a better platform for the series than the Switch. I expect many more Tales games to follow in its footsteps. It'll be out this winter.
