posted on by Jennifer Sherman

Bandai Namco Entertainment America announced on Monday that the Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition game will launch for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam in the Americas, Europe, and Japan on January 11. The company also announced that an Anniversary Bundle will include exclusive collectibles that feature Yuri Lowell, Patty Fleur, Flynn Scifo, and Repede, and it will be available only through the Bandai Namco Official Store.

The game is a remastered version of Bandai Namco Entertainment's Tales of Vesperia role-playing game. The game will include both English and Japanese voice-overs, as well as content from the Japanese PlayStation 3 release available for the first time in English, such as Patty Fleur and Flynn Schifo as party members. The game will also include new scenarios, locations, and costumes.

The original Tales of Vesperia role-playing game shipped for Xbox 360 in 2008, and it then received a PlayStation 3 release in Japan in 2009. The PS3 version added full voice acting, the new character Patty Fleur, and the character Flynn Schifo as a party member, as well as additional dungeons, bosses, and Gigant monsters.

Production I.G produced the Tales of Vesperia: The First Strike anime film, which acts as a prequel to the game, in 2009. Funimation released the film on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in North America.
