Namco Bandai Games began streaming an introduction video for Richea Spodune, a non-playable character key to the story of the Tales of Hearts R game, on Thursday. Richea is voiced by Kaori Shimizu (Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, Lucky Star).
Production I.G will produce the anime cutscenes for this PS Vita port of the Nintendo DS role-playing game Tales of Hearts . The main scenario with protagonist Shing Meteoryte (Tetsuya Kakihara) will be fully voiced with 10 new animated story events. Additional cast members include Marina Inoue as Kohak Hearts, Masaya Matsukaze as Hisui Hearts, Saeko Chiba as Beryl Benito, and the exclusive character Galando Grinus (Hideo Ishikawa).
The graphics, backgrounds, character models, and battle system will also be upgraded. The battle system will also feature 3D graphics and a "chase link" mode that will allow players to make aerial attacks if certain conditions are met. The new game will also include a field map.
Namco Bandai Games will ship Tales of Hearts R on March 7 in a standard edition for 6,480 yen (about US$77) and a "Link" Edition for 9,980 yen (US$119). A download-only edition will also be available for 5,830 yen (US$69).
