Trusty ol' Nintendo Power confirms that Tales of the Abyss 3D will come to North America in their May 2011 issue. When it was announced in Japan awhile back, they gave no word of a Western release, but we knew that they wouldn't do us wrong with this remake of the classic RPG.
Japan will get their Tales of the Abyss 3D in late June. We'll get a better look at it then. I think it'll make a fine 3DS game. It could be one of the first 3D RPGs on the system.
