Hideo Baba confirms Tales of Hearts R for Western release

A tale of too many awesome Tales games

Ready for more Tales games to invade your backlog? Who isn’t, right? Like a fabulous shooter once said, get psyched, because Tales series producer Hideo Baba has just confirmed that the PlayStation Vita Tales entry Tales of Hearts R will be receiving a Western release this winter. In addition, standing amidst a sea of Tales merchandise, Baba asks that we “look forward to more news” regarding Tales of Zestiria and Tales of Hearts R.

Tales of Hearts R is a fully-voiced remake of the DS installment Tales of Hearts, with additional content and new player character Calcedny Arcome, who was previously relegated to NPC status.

This news shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, given the game’s fleeting listing over at GameStop, but now, after two unused trademarks later, we can breathe a sigh of relief with the official announcement. It’s still exciting, and I’ve got a heart on. Let’s make secret plans to play it together.
