Tales of Vesperia The First Strike Film finally comes to America
There have been TV series' and OVA's based off the "Tales of" series before, but only released in Japan. Then in 2009 a film called Tales of Vesperia The First Strike was also only available in Japan... until now. Funimation has released the film in BluRay and on DVD in a form of the popular combo pack with the same title as the Japanese version. If you get it at retail it'll cost you $34.99, but if you pick it up online it'll cost you $20.99. Also for those interested in a summary of the story (especially if you’re not familiar with Tales of Vesperia) here's a brief summary.
Funimation has been bringing a lot of movies and anime lately that may be difficult to acquire. I may pick this up in the future, but I'm glad this 2009 film is finally available in America. And for those curious this features both English voice acting and keeps the original Japanese voice acting with English subs.
Are g1s excited about this film out of Japan and into America?
hopefully the english voice acting is as good as it was in the game
Awesome. I love Funimation.
I hope so. I've been wanting to play that for a long time, but I don't own an Xbox 360.
I hope this gets released to Europe too. I doubt it, but I hope.
You guys are gonna like it. It's a prologue of how it begins before the main story in the game. Sorry I got my taste of the JPN so yeah, but it's worth the buy and I don't mind watching this again!
A good thing there's a fan translation of Vesperia PS3 in the works
I sure hope so. The PS3 version of ToV has more to offer than the xbox360 version.
Maybe yea. Tales of Vesperia is an awesome game.
An English Sub option? Yes please!
Very unlikely, and considering the recent release of Tales of Graces f, even more unlikely, but we can always hope.
I wonder if this means there is a slight chance Namco Bandai will localize Tales of Vesperia F for PS3 as this movie ties into the new additions in that version.
