Also: Tales of Xillia 2 announced for August 19

The North American and European arms of Bandai Namco Games began streaming an announcement trailer on Tuesday for its Tales of Heart R PlayStation Vita game. The game is slated for release in Europe and the Americas this Winter.

Bandai Namco Games Europe describes the story:

Tales of Hearts R follows the story of Kor Meteor, a brave young man living in a small village by the sea, as he sharpens his fighting skills under the watchful eye of his grandfather. Impressed with Kor's growing skill, his grandfather bequeaths to him a special type of weapon known as a Soma. Soma users must possess exceptionally strong Spiria, the source of all life from which the human mind and will are derived.

Armed with his Soma, Kor soon encounters a young woman named Kohaku Hearts who has been placed under a spell by a mysterious witch. As Kor attempts to lift the spell, he accidentally shatters Kohaku's Spiria Core, the source of her emotions. Kor must set out on a journey to find a way to make Kohaku's Spiria whole once more.

The game remakes the Nintendo DS role-playing game Tales of Hearts, fully voiced and with new story events. Calcedny Arcome, a former non-player character, is a party character for the new game.

Bandai Namco Games America also revealed the August 19 release date for Tales of Xillia 2. The Collector's Edition will ship with a Ludger Kresnik figure, a replica of Elle's Pocket Watch, a Rolo Plush Charm, a music selection CD, art book, and costume DLCs for classic Tales of characters (Yuri Lowell, Emil Castagnier, Asbel Lhant). The game shipped in Japan in November
