Tales of the Abyss Dated for Europe

Posted by Trevor Chan

Namco Bandai RPG out this November

During the Japan Expo 12th Impact event in Paris, France this week, Namco Bandai announced the European release date of its 3DS role-playing game, Tales of the Abyss.

Based on the 2006 PlayStation 2 original, Tales of the Abyss stars Luke fon Fabre, the heir to an aristocratic family who has spent too long being isolated from the outside world and living the life of a spoilt and naive youth. When he embarks on his adventure outside of his normal realm of existence, he learns about the value of friendship, duty, choice and sacrifice.

Tales of the Abyss is scheduled for release across Europe and Australasia on 10th November. The North America release date has yet to be determined.

Awesome, this game looks amazing. It looks like it could be the second best GOTY with Xenoblade chronicles being the best.

@8: From Wikipedia,
"Australasia is a region of Oceania: Australia, New Zealand, the island of New Guinea, and neighbouring islands in the Pacific Ocean (Island Melanesia, potentially including Wallacea)."

So, the game will work on 3DSs sold in the entire said region.
(P.S. at the end of the comment, there is a ";P".)

Well its an RPG, we Americans shouldn't expect it in the state. I'm sure they have a new Cooking Mama for us which apparently is just as good.

it's a bit far away but it will do. i am just getting bored with all these announcements about things that will come... in six months.. next year.. "in the future" and ofc lets not forget "soon"... i want to know about things that will come in maximum 2 months... 3DS will hopefully get a healthy dose of RPGs. if they could port xenoblade etc. on 3ds it would be awesome! this way they would be able to keep everyone happy!

Unlike the Wii, NoA are bringing RPGs to the 3DS. Of course the DS has alot of strong RPGs itself so its not a surprise.
