More On: Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition

It's the 10th anniversary of Tales of Vesperia, and Namco Bandai is celebrating by releasing Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition. Originally a timed Xbox 360 exclusive back in 2008, the game eventually made its way to PS3. Now the game is re-releasing across all major platforms: Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and Steam. The Definitive Edition retains the signature Tales Linear Motion Battle System, where you control one party member while the rest of the party fights simultaneously as AI partners. The Definitive Edition also includes new content previously available only in Japan, including new story missions, locations, costumes and playable characters.

I know I'm biased as a Nintendo fan but I'm especially happy to have this game on Switch; being able to play these massive RPGs wherever I want is still kind of novel. You can pick up any version of Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition now for $49.99.
