"Tales of Hearts R" Set for November in the West

Bandai Namco dates RPG for North America and Europe

Previously announced for winter 2014, Bandai Namco Games narrowed down the western release of Tales of Hearts R to a specific date. The PS Vita remake heads to the Americas on November 11, followed by Europe on November 14.


Tales of Hearts R takes the 2008 DS original and makes some improvements like fully 3D graphics, new anime cutscenes, full voice acting across the main story, and more. Here's how Bandai Namco sums it up:


Tales of Hearts R follows the story of Kor Meteor, a brave young man living in a small village by the sea, as he sharpens his fighting skills under the watchful eye of his grandfather. Impressed with Kor’s growing skill, his grandfather bequeaths to him a special type of weapon known as a Soma. Soma users must possess exceptionally strong Spiria, the source of all life from which the human mind and will are derived. 


Armed with his Soma, Kor soon encounters a young woman named Kohaku Hearts who has been placed under a spell by a mysterious witch. As Kor attempts to lift the spell, he accidentally shatters Kohaku’s Spiria Core, the source of her emotions. Kor must set out on a journey to find a way to make Kohaku’s Spiria whole once more.
