Production I.G produced the anime cutscenes for this PS Vita version of the Nintendo DS role-playing game Tales of Hearts.

Additional cast members include Hiroshi Kamiya as Calcedny Arcome, Marina Inoue as Kohak Hearts, Shizuka Itou as Innes Lorenz, and Hozumi Gôda as Kunzite.
The graphics, backgrounds, character models, and battle system are also being upgraded. The battle system also features 3D graphics and a "chase link" mode that allows players to make aerial attacks if certain conditions are met. The new game also includes a field map.
