'Tales of Hearts R' (Vita) Gets Release Date - Screens

Tales of Hearts R is a Japanese role-playing game that 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.

On top of the compelling and heart-felt storyline, Tales of Hearts R features a unique and dazzling battle system that builds upon the Tales Of series’ celebrated “Linear Motion Battle System” by introducing the “Aerial Chase Linear Motion Battle System.” Players will be able to move freely in the air and experience fast-paced aerial battles that will be sure to blow enemies away.


“I am very happy to announce Tales of Hearts R’s release date at the biggest Japanese culture event in the West! It is very fitting to do so, as it contains the original Japanese voice overs! I have enjoyed a lot traveling around Europe to promote the Tales of Series in many countries, and it is my pleasure to come back to Japan Expo and celebrate Tales of with the fans. I hope the fans keep enjoying our efforts to constantly translate the game in many languages, and have fun discovering the journey of Kor Meteor, Kohaku Hearts, and all of their friends in Tales of Hearts R. Let’s get excited for the future of Tales of together!” says Namco Bandai producer Hideo Baba.
