Namco Bandai Games America has given its latest entry into the Tales series a solid March 13, 2012 US release date.
While giving the game a solid North American release date, Namco Bandai was less forthcoming regarding Tales of Graces f's European release. "Tales of Graces f will be available in Europe in summer 2012 and localized in German and French. More details on the European version coming soon," read Namco Bandai's statement.
Keeping the anime graphics of its predecessors, the new Tales game is set to focus on the idea of friendship telling the story of Asbel Lhant as he and his friends try to survive the conflict raging between the three kingdoms ruling his world. The game promises to boast around 50 hours of gameplay and a "unique multiplayer system" that will allow players to, "[e]nlist the help of up to three friends."
Here's hoping European gamers won't have to wait too much longer than the US to get their mitts on the new Tales.
