RPG fans, it really is your time to revel.

Namco Bandai Games America has announced a North American release date for the highly anticipated Tales of Graces f : March 13, 2012. Remember, this is another title exclusive to the PlayStation 3.

This is the first time the critically acclaimed Tales franchise will grace the PS3 in this country. Three kingdoms are competing for planetary dominance, and Asbel Lhant and his allies will take their skills to the limit to survive and succeed. Also for the first time in the series, the combat mechanic lets the player "freely change attack style depending on the battle situation." The weapons can be switched out for different styles and the game also includes "new levels of tactical depth."

As for our European friends, they'll receive Tales of Graces f in summer 2012. For more info, visit the game's official website .

Cell shading. Does it every time.

Gamers with $22.48 to spare can log right onto Amazon right now and order themselves a fresh copy of Rage. mmmmh 22.48

I like the look of the Atelier series, or even Eternal Sonata, this looks behind. But the visuals aren't everything so yeah I'll get this game some day. I didn't know it was just a Wii port so that explains a lot.

YAY!!! Sooner than I thought… already preordered

@WorldEndsWithMe call me old school… but I'm yearning for a game like this! (or hoping) While I do love the new gen stuff and own over 60 PS3 games (have proof on Camera)… I find that JRPGs and OLDER games are more tasteful/artful – new games not so much >…< and tend to MOSTLY rely on graphics for game value

While it sounds weird – new games are great while you play them but they leave no lasting impression. Older games (PS2 era and older) – when I'd finish a game – the game "feel" lasts and sometimes I feel nostalgic wanting to replay it more. I've felt an "attachment" to very few games this era. I'm so worried 'cause at this rate I'm scared I may actually quit video games

I just home hope that this Tales game fits the bill. I remember playing Tales of the Abyss – while I played it I thought meh. But really thinking about it… I really miss the game. Great cast with multiple personalities, absolutely gorgeous music, good voice acting, cheesy story, giant world to explore etc. Dunno but I've been feeling this way since the PS3's been out <…<

World the screen shot above is not for the ps3 tales of graces. It looks nothing like that. That is most likely the Wii version. Google Image search the ps3 version and they have some comparison shots. I think the ps3 version looks really nice and comparable to those games you just listed.

Yeah it'll be 60 bucks and yes it was on the Wii. If folks don't buy this after whining about wanting JRPG's then Namco will probably never bring another stateside again. Let's see how the gamer masses will react.

So… June of next year for me, or do I have my seasons all befuddled again? Nyeh, the climate here doesn't even abide by all that, so small wonder I get confused by it 🙂 All I know is that it's hot as hell and I'm perpetually surprised not to see eels crossing the road instead of snakes.

I'm interested in Tales of Graces F, but if it isn't a budget price, I'm not buying it. No way am I dropping $89-99 for a Wii port. I'd settle for $50.
