Tales of Graces F coming to North America

The torturous wait ends with a surprise announcement from Namco Bandai

When it comes to the Tales franchise, North American fans are always left questioning whether or not the latest game in Japan will ever see a Namco Bandai translator's desk. Today, there's actually some good news on that front, as the publisher has announced that the latest title will be coming to North America.

Tales of Graces F was confirmed for North America today via a new website and image on Facebook. No other details were revealed, and when it will launch remains a question.

Namco Bandai fans here were heartbroken when the Wii game Tales of Graces was confirmed to be a Japanese exclusive. But when the publisher decided to remake it with new content on the PS3, there was hope it might have been successful enough to warrant North American localization, but it seemed that wouldn't happen either, making today's announcement a big surprise.

In the game, players follow the story of Asbel Lhant who traverses multiple kingdoms to become the greatest knight in the world. It has the trademark Tales art style and a new battle system that reviewers of the Japanese game seem to have received positively.

The teaser image says "Coming Soon" so hopefully Tales of Graces F will be here sometime later this year.
