Bandai Namco have revealed that Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition (my favourite entry in the whole franchise) will release on January 11th 2019 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.

Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition includes up-scaled screen resolution, characters, events, and costumes that were never released outside of Japan, as well as introducing two new playable party members. Flynn Scifo, the main character’s best friend and rival, and Patty Fleur, a young pirate searching for her lost memories.

Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition uses a specialised iteration of the ‘Tales Of’ series’ Linear Motion Battle System for combat. Players control a single party member in real-time combat while other party members are controlled by a customised set of A.I. commands. Players can swap between any of the four characters at any time during battles and can perform physical attacks, Magic Artes or even powerful Mystic Artes.

Despite finishing the game a few times already, I’m ridiculously pumped to play through Tales of Vesperia all over again. The best part? I can do it on the go on the Nintendo Switch. Brilliant. It looks like January 2019 is shaping up to be a good month for gamers…
