Tales of Innocence R – PSVita – Updated

Tales of Innocence was originally a game on the DS. But of course, with namcos current trend for tales being a remake or adding more content to a game, then porting it to another system, it’s less than surprising. The game will be featured as a title on the soon to be released vita with much improved graphics compared to the original DS counterpart. With the games estimated window of 2012.

There has been quite a few changes to the game. The game will be fully voiced now, and will have a new opening theme by KOKIA titled New Day, New Life and will also posses a new opening animation.

The story has also supposedly been completely rewritten from start to finish. Giving more information on pats of the story as well as extending it. There will also be the addition of a new character.

Changes have also been made to the battle system. Now labeled as [DI-LMBS] “Direct Interaction Linear Motion Battle System”.  Players are able to control the character with the use of the VITAs touchpad system. Players may now also use up to 4 characters in battle as opposed to before.

Any form of localization is unknown and with the DS version never seeing localization, chances may or may not be, very slim.

Xillia shipped and sony borked me – Personal Update

I finally got my preorder for Tales of  Xillia today along with a lovely Jude charm with him in his cless armor. It says china on the back of the head, kinda bummed about that. Was pretty excited that I’d be able to pop it in. However it seems in order to play xillia I was required to update my PS3. So I go about grabbing the firmware from sonys site to upgrade my PS3. What do you know, the update ends up with an error causing my PS3 to go into an infinite update and fail loop. My PS3, now with no firmware on it due to the safe mode boot up formatting it then following by an error still ended up bricking my poor PS3.

So today has been filled with greatness followed by epic failure. Thanks Namco and truly thank you sony. Guess I’ll be holding onto this beautiful game untouched until I gather the money for a new PS3.
