Tales of Hearts R is being localized for Western audiences
Surrounding himself in a sea of merchandise, Tales series producer Hideo Baba had a very special announcement for JRPG fans living in Europe and North America.
Baba revealed the Vita exclusive remake of Tales of Hearts will be released in Western regions later this year, although a specific release date beyond "Winter" hasn't been set.
No other details concerning the upcoming release have been disclosed at this time but as Gematsu uncovered, Bandai Namco included a statement in the video summary, which explained physical copies will be a GameStop exclusive in North America, although it was quickly removed. Regardless of the state of physical copies, digital downloads will be available through the PlayStation Network.
With Tales of Xillia 2, Zestiria, and now Hearts R, fans here in the West have a lot to look forward to over the next year.
