Review: Tales of Hearts R photo
Review: Tales of Hearts R
by Kyle MacGregor

The Tales series may not have the same cachet in the West as do other prominent role-playing game franchises, but its renown is definitely on the rise. Bandai Namco has expressed more confidence in the franchise in recent years, showing a willingness to push Tales as a global brand rather than just a curiosity for Japanese audiences.

It seems there's a market for this sort of thing -- a healthy niche that appreciates something more antique in a world so obsessed with pioneering and being cutting-edge. Time marches on and the Tales series digs its heels into the ground, refusing to yield to fads and ephemeral trends. It's old-fashioned to a fault. But would you have it any other way?

Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed is coming to PlayStation 4 on November 25, XSEED Games unveiled today.

The otaku beat-'em-up arrived on PS3 and Vita back in August, and earned a favorable appraisal from our own Brittany Vincent. In her review, Brittany called the game "an interesting culture shock of a good time," recommending it to fans of quirky Japanese games.

The PS4 version vaunts a number of enhancements unseen in the original release, include upgraded visuals, a host of customization options, chat commands that can impact gameplay during livestreams, plus more dialogue scenes and folks walking around Akihabara.

It also bundles in all downloadable content released for the PS3 and Vita iterations as standard, but carries a slightly more expensive price tag at $50.
