Bandai Namco has shared the release date for Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition and also confirmed that the game will launch with a physical special edition. The release date for the game is now set for January 17th, 2019. There was no confirmation of the platforms that will get the special edition but it is likely going to be the Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
Here’s a description of the game’s new Definitive Edition:
Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition includes upscaled screen resolution, characters, events, and costumes never released outside of Japan, as well as introducing two new playable party members. Flynn Scifo, the main character’s rival, and best friend, and Patty Fleur, a young pirate searching for her lost memories.
Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition uses a specialised version of the TALES OF series’ Linear Motion Battle System for combat. Players control a single party member in real-time combat while the other three party members are controlled by a customized set of A.I. commands. Players can swap between the four characters at any time during battles and can perform physical attacks, magic artes or even powerful Mystic Artes.
Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition will be out on January 17th, 2019 for the PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
