What? No plans for a Tales of Vesperia PS3 US release?

[As posted on Japanator]

Considering Namco Bandai’s overwhelming desire for money, I’m surprised that they would go and tell VGchartz that they’ve no plans to release Tales of Vesperia PS3 to the US.

I mean, do they NOT want to sell us ridiculously priced DLC? PS3 owners have been begging for this for years, Tales being one of the biggest JRPG franchises alongside Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest

Perhaps it was too much trouble to localize all that new content? Is Microsoft’s exclusivity deal still in effect for here? None but they can say.

Then again, “we have no plans” is often code language for “marketing won’t let us announce it yet,” so PS3-owning Tales fans shouldn’t give up hope for having Patty Fleur the loli pirate yet.
