This news is far from abysmal!

Back in September, we learned that Namco Bandai planned to port the popular 2006 PlayStation 2 RPG Tales of the Abyss to the 3DS, fully updated with 3D graphics. We've just learned from the most recent issue of Nintendo Power that the game would see release in North America as well. The full page teaser reads:

The modern RPG classic Tales of the Abyss is about to be retold on the Nintendo 3DS. Yes, even in America!

We'll bring you all future news on this title as it develops, including word on whether Europe will see a localisation as well.
