Tales of Hearts R Out 11/11 on PS Vita & PSTV, Pre-order Detailed

Grace Liu's Avatar Posted by on Oct 10, 2014 // Associate PR Specialist, BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc.

We are making Tales of Hearts R’s November 11th launch on PlayStation Vita something to remember! The latest western JRPG release in the long standing ‘Tales of’ series will be compatible with PlayStation TV! Many of you asked for such a feature and we are more than happy to make the PlayStation TV’s launch even more awesome.

That’s not all however! In the tradition of previous ‘Tales of’ releases, we are happy to reveal more info on our pre-order promotion and Digital Limited Edition in the Americas! Pre-order Tales of Hearts R in the Americas from participating stores and get a classic ‘Tales of’ costume set with outfits paying tribute to a range of previous ‘Tales of’ games on launch day! This exciting content will be included as a digital bonus while supplies last.

Tales of Hearts R

If you’d rather get the game digitally, you can buy the Digital Limited Edition on the PSN and get the same six awesome costumes! But don’t procrastinate, because the Digital Limited Edition will only be available until the end of November.

Save the date: Tales of Hearts R is coming to PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV on November 11th!

    We apologize for the confusion. The Nov 14th date was the European release date and the post has been fixed to reflect the Nov 11th release in the Americas! Sooner the better :)

PlayStation TV you say? Let me pre-order this game too.

+ BahumatIsBack on October 10th, 2014 at 11:25 am said:

Does this game have full English support meaning both text and audio? No buy from me if it has anything even remotely not localized. That’s a lazy habit of some recent games and it needs to just stop

Thank You Bandai.
You guys have helped make my Vita worth owning for more than PSone classics, and Indie titles.

Now if we could get better pricing on digital sales, as I prefer to own, and not trade in or resell my purchase once I am through playing it.

I would think you would have more being made from digital.
Just look at SOA, and it has only been out a month with no discount.

I will be waiting for a future sale to pick these up, but be sure I will when they aren’t $40 bucks for PS2 graphics.

    The retail version will be sold exclusively at GameStop in the US and EB Games in Canada!

already pre-ordered from way back in March

+ Elvick_ on October 10th, 2014 at 1:01 pm said:

Thank you Bamco.

Please bring us Digimon Cyber Sleuth at retail. And Innocence R. Seems SAO did well, despite the Asia Engrish. And One Piece seemed to do well too.

I am sure this will do well too.

@18: No, it’s exclusive to Gamestop/EB Games.

+ Folklore_Legendz on October 10th, 2014 at 1:02 pm said:

I’ll get the digital version, but it would be nice if Namco can get amazon on board to distribute physical copies as well.
also please Namco! we need digimon cyber sleuth, I will go as far as to double dip.

+ Elvick_ on October 10th, 2014 at 1:03 pm said:

@6: No dub. Why bother? The cost isn’t worth it, you are a minority.

+ subsamuel01 on October 10th, 2014 at 1:12 pm said:

See a lot of third party titles on PSVita like Tales, but where are the damn first party titles. Last one we got was Teraway and that was almost a year ago.

+ lisatsunami on October 10th, 2014 at 1:17 pm said:

The digital version has same bonus costumes?! Yay! I much prefer digital for Vita games. Thank you, Bandai, but of course I will buy any Tales game anyway.

I will definitely be trying this on my PS TV, too. Thank you for supporting that.

Now, if I can only stop playing your other game, Dark Souls 2….

Preordered! Thanks for the Japanese audio and PSTV support! That was exactly what I was looking for!

+ Nerroth on October 10th, 2014 at 1:48 pm said:

Good to see more Vita and PSTV support on the way.

On a side note, has Bandai Namco North America been keeping tabs on the recently-announced Sword Art Online: Lost Song? it’s due out for Vita and PS3 over in Japan next year, and I’m hoping that the chart-topping success of SAO:HF on both sides of the Atlantic might help make localizing the next game in that series (and for both platforms) more viable an option for Bamco to consider.

Day one for sure!!! Those Caius and Repede outfits <3 What about some Innocence R love too? :)

+ Rezolution77 on October 10th, 2014 at 2:34 pm said:

@22 minority how?

Love SOA, and would have probably bought had it not sold so well.
But how do you even know?

Some love the game well enough not to even care.

That doesn’t mean they wouldn’t or aren’t holding off buying it because of.


32

+ pikmin44 on October 10th, 2014 at 2:39 pm said:

Oh wait, if I get a physical copy of the game I can play it on Vita AND TV. Forgot about that.


33

+ Rezolution77 on October 10th, 2014 at 2:39 pm said:

I know for a fact after watching both versions of SOA, that I can appreciate the artwork much better without glancing down every couple seconds to read subtitles.

Now the translations and the voicework have varied it some, true.
But I can spend more time actually watching it.

I am pretty sure the minority are those like yourself, which is why japanese anime has taken years here in the states to catch on.

I hope Tales of Vesperia (the PS3 version – I know it’s a little too late) gets a western release eventually whether it is a digital copy and/or physical copy for the PlayStation Brand ( w Eng subs with Jap audio).

First of all, I really want to thank you Grace Liu and all the team at Bandai Namco for listening to your fans and bringing this game to the Playstation Vita to the Americas, now i really have a question that i really hope you can answer.

I pre-ordered the game through your official store page (bandainamcogamesstore) since I prefer to pay with my Amazon account rather than pre-ordering through Gamestop, but I am concerned since you made no mention of pre-ordering the game throguh this method, and only mentioned that the physical retail copy would only be available on Gamestop.

So my question is, pre-ordering through your official store gives you the pre-order bonuses, or is it only Gamestop exclusive?

Thanks in advance.
