Tales of the Abyss Coming to 3DS

Posted by Corbie Dillard

3DS port in the works for Japan

Namco Bandai has just announced that their Playstation 2 RPG Tales of the Abyss will be making its way to Nintendo's new 3DS system in Japan. They've also stated that the game will be an updated port in full 3D glory.

We've seen speculation and rumors in the past about the game coming to various platforms, but it seems the company is finally ready to commit to this trek to the 3DS and given the system's high anticipation level, it would seem like a great fit.

No word on a North American or European release, but given how new the system will be next year and how most publishers will likely be scrambling to get their titles released for the system, the timing for this one might prove to be key to the game possibly seeing a release outside of Japan.

We'll keep you posted on any future updates regarding the game.

This is still my favorite "Tales of..." game. I'd love to see this 3DS port make it outside of Japan.

You know a console is going to be good when everyone freaks out because a game for it is announced.

This doesn't look as good as some other tales games but it still looks like great game. I hope it comes outside of Japan.

Abyss is somewhat rare already, as the PS2 version can go for more than 40 dollars on ebay. I missed the game its first time around and have be pining to try it.
It'd be nice to get a 3D version of the game for the same price!

Forget Abyss, I want Symphonia 3D dangit! Of course, if this ever comes westside, you know I'll be picking it up.



FunderThucker said:

Whoa, whoa, whoa, I just bought my ps2 version a few weeks ago! Blasts, I'm going to sell it on ebay.

Awsome, I loved Tales of Symphonia which is the only experience I had with the series. Plus aside from kingdom hearts there is not alot of news about rpgs for the 3DS yet.



Curt said:

Considering how often Tales games go unreleased in North America, I'm not getting my hopes up.

Tales of the Abyss... I played it for the first time only recently, but it's quickly become one of my favourite RPGs I've played.

I'm hopeful that this gets released in English. Tales of Eternia on the PSP was released in English... And just like Eternia, an English translation of Abyss already exists. So, I think there's more hope of an English release for this one than if it were an originally Japan-only game.

This is absolutely my favorite game. As if 3DS wasn't good enough already.
