The official Twitter account for the Tales of series announced on Wednesday that Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition (titled Tales of Vesperia Remaster in Japan) has shipped more than 500,000 copies worldwide.
Bandai Namco Entertainment released the game for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam in the Americas, Europe, and Japan on January 11.
The game is a remastered version of Bandai Namco Entertainment's Tales of Vesperia role-playing game. The game includes 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 also includes new scenarios, locations, and costumes. Voice actor Troy Baker did not return to voice Yuri Lowell in the game's additional scenes.
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.
