More Tales To Come!

Those of you who, like me, love the Tales of Ö games will be excited to know that there are two new Tales games coming out soon, Tales of Xillia 2 and Tales of Hearts R. Tales of Xillia 2 is for the PS3 and Tales of Hearts R is a PS Vita release.

Tales of Hearts R is actually a remake of an older one called Tales of Hearts. It was released last year in Japan and is finally making its way to the American and European market this year. If you happen to have played the Japanese versions, then the story might be somewhat familiar to you (although it is not exactly the same since there are new playable characters), but for the rest of us it will be a new tale.

Your main character is a lad named Kor Meteor. He lives a peaceful life in a small village by the sea. He does show promise as a sword master due to his grandfatherís training. Due to this, his grandfather gives him a "Soma Weapon." One day, Korís path crosses Kohaku Hearts and his life is forever changed. In an unfortunate accident, Kohaku ends up emotionless. Kor sets out with her to try and save her. Personally, I canít wait to see how the interactions go with an emotionless character. I am guessing it will be a bit like Milla in Tales of Xillia and her learning human emotions. Anyway, you will be able to play this new tale (still in Japanese, but with English subtitles) this Winter. There is no official release date yet, but hopefully there will be one soon. Until then, enjoy the trailer and screenshots!
