This hill's steeper than it looks

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.
