Despite the internet popularity of Bandai Namco’s Tales of… series, its sales figures and retailer hype level outside of Japan must not be up to snuff. It was recently reconfirmed that neither the PS3′s version of Tales of Graces (formerly on Wii) nor its enhanced port of Tales of Vesperia (formerly on 360) are under any serious consideration for heading to the West. Of course, plans can change at any time, so non Japanese-speaking Tales fans will just have to keep their fingers crossed, while those that can understand the language might consider sucking up the $100 price of importing the PS3 port of Graces.
The more likely of either of the two above ports to come stateside would be Tales of Graces F, as its original version didn’t come stateside. Even so, Bandai Namco, whose localization decisions have been the subject of many frustrated discussions, is not committing to any announcement.
