Namco Bandai Games has announced JRPG Tales of Heart R for PS Vita and released a video for it.
Producer on the Tales series, Hideo Baba, has prepared a video message straight from Japan:
We’ve done our best to keep this announcement a surprise, and we’re really excited to see the fans welcome this new addition to the growing heritage of Tales games.
The adventure starts with Kor, a young man living in a small village by the sea. While watching the house in his grandfather’s absence, Kor meets a young woman named Kohaku who has come searching for his grandfather. However, a mysterious witch soon appears and casts a spell on Kohaku’s Spiria, the embodiment of her heart and soul. Kor attempts to lift the spell, but while doing so he accidentally shatters her Spiria Core, the source of her emotions. Armed only with the Soma, an unusual weapon given to him by his grandfather, Kor must now set out on a journey to find a way to make Kohaku’s Spiria whole once more.
With character designs by Mutsumi Inomata, and the new Aerial Chase Linear Motion Battle System enabling players to move freely in the air and experience aerial battles like never before.
