It’s been pretty much a decade since the launch of the original Tales of Vesperia by the then titled, Namco Bandai. But now it’s time for a relaunch and with the rebranded Bandai Namco still behind it, we get to welcome Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition to the world.
Available right now on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition pretty much does what it says on the tin, taking everything about the much loved Tales game and remastering it into the best edition every created.
Created in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the original game, this Definitive Edition of Tales of Vesperia sees us thrown into a land that is in the midst of a power struggle, as we find two friends heading out on to an epic path-entwining journey.
With a range of fully updated HD visuals, some super exciting mini-games to get involved in, the inclusion of brand new musical tracks to accompany the action, and plenty of bosses to go toe-to-toe with, Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition is quite possibly one of the most intriguing of JRPGs of recent time… particularly if you hadn’t played the game previously.
Our full review of Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition on Xbox One is right here, ready and willing to let you in on all the little secrets that the game holds. Is it worth a look once more? We reckon you’ll love what is found within.
If you agree and wish to give it a go then you can head on over to the Xbox Store (or the PlayStation/PC equivalents), and grab Tales of Vesperia for £34.99.
Additionally, alongside the base game we also have access to the Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition Adventurer Starter Pack for free and this brings all manner of goodies, items and more that any would be adventurer will be needing. You can add to that the free Costume Pack too, full of just what you can imagine… costumes for all the playable characters. Full details at the bottom of this piece.
