The 3DS port of Tales of the Abyss will hit Europe later this year, while North America will have to wait until next year.

Tales of the Abyss’ 3DS port has finally received release dates for Europe and North America. Namco Bandai plans to release the game in Europe on November 25th of this year; however North American 3DS owners will have to wait until February 14, 2012 to get their hands on the 3DS RPG.

For those who unfamiliar with the game, Tales of the Abyss is a Japanese RPG that was originally released for the PS2. The game is part of Namco Bandai’s popular Tales series, a collection of RPGs that are known for their unique real-time battle system.

Talkback

I rather enjoyed Abyss on PS2, and it's worth checking out if you happen to like Tales games and haven't played it before.  It's comparable with the quality of Tales of Symphonia, although themain character, Luke, can really get on your nerves (though that's intentional.) 

The game's narrative has a nice, if not unpredictable, twist on JRPG tropes involving the hero's journey; I just wish the game's creators had pushed it a little farther.  That's not to say that the game isn't replete with JRPG conventions...because it is.

It's too bad that they aren't porting a version of Vesperia since I've never gotten to play it. It would probably have to take too much of a graphical downgrade, I suppose.

I'm looking forward to this game, sounds like a great hole-filler for 3DS. But geez, why the long delay for America?
