Bandai Namco has announced that Tales of Hearts R will release for the PlayStation Vita in North America on November 11 and Europe on November 14 at both retail and through the PlayStation Store. At least in Europe, the game will come with EFIGS (English, French, Italian, German, Spanish) subtitles and Japanese voice-over work.
Tales Producer Hideo Baba talked about the release date announcement:
I am very happy to announce Tales of Hearts R’s release date at the biggest Japanese culture event in the West! It is very fitting to do so, as it contains the original Japanese voice overs! I have enjoyed a lot traveling around Europe to promote the Tales of Series in many countries, and it is my pleasure to come back to Japan Expo and celebrate Tales of with the fans.
I hope the fans keep enjoying our efforts to constantly translate the game in many languages, and have fun discovering the journey of Kor Meteor, Kohaku Hearts, and all of their friends in Tales of Hearts R. Let’s get excited for the future of Tales of together!
If you need a refresher:
Tales of Hearts R follows the story of Kor Meteor, a brave young man living in a small village by the sea, as he sharpens his fighting skills under the watchful eye of his grandfather. Impressed with Kor’s growing skill, his grandfather bequeaths to him a special type of weapon known as a Soma. Soma users must possess exceptionally strong Spiria, the source of all life from which the human mind and will are derived.
As you’ll recall, Tales of Hearts R is a product of the #JRPGVita campaign, so this is definitely one to look forward to.
