Tales of the Abyss 3DS Headed to North America
Namco Bandai's Tales series is receiving plenty of western exposure. Tales of Graces F, a PlayStation 3 remake of the original Wii game, was recently announced for North America. Another game in the series will move outside of Japan, as well, which should make western RPG fans very happy.
Tales of the Abyss, a PlayStation 2 original that is currently in new development, has been announced as a 3DS title for North America. Initially, the game was slated for release in Japan, and consumers were unsure whether the title would reach North American shores. Luckily for fans of the series and the genre, the game will indeed be localized.
News of the game's localization came courtesy of the latest issue of Nintendo Power magazine. Though the game is set for release in Japan later this year, it is unknown when the game will hit North American 3DS systems. Here's hoping 3DS adopters will get Tales of the Abyss before 2012.
The Tales series has managed to attract a strong and loyal fan following. If you fancy yourself a proponent of these games, be sure to keep an eye on the North American version of Tales of the Abyss. If you've never played any of the games in the series but own a 3DS, you may want to make this one your first foray into the Tales universe.
