Thanks to Siliconera (who themselves were tipped off by Kotaku) it seems that the iconic Tales of Hearts R will be seeing a release in the west this winter.

Bandai Namco had a now-removed video on Youtube confirming this, but Siliconera readers managed to grab a still:

We have filed this under rumours for now until we get an official announcement, but any Tales fans here? Would you buy this in an instant?

Released in March last year in Japan, the title is an update to the Nintendo DS title of the same name and is a 3D role player and scored quite favourably when it was released.

We will bring you more news as and when we have it!

We’ve speculated all week and now it seems that the new slim PS Vita, the PCH-2000 will be revealed tomorrow after all.

A tweet posted by All Games Beta included a grab from an email, which suggests suggesting that you will be able to pre-order the device from tomorrow in the UK.

Slim Email

VG247 have followed the story up citing that a source told them that in addition to that the unit will retail for £189 and will have a game included in the price, but will only be available in black.

We will await the news ourselves tomorrow, but we thought that the whole point of the new design was to reduce the price – as the system removes the OLED screen whilst at the same time offering improved battery life and being slimmer and lighter.

What do you think of the news? Do you think that this is what will be revealed tomorrow? Is the potential pricing wrong? And would it disappont you if the black version is the only colour available?


Pictures tweeted from the SEGA account the last few days have teased what appears to be Ryo Hazuki (of Shenmue fame) on three different vehicles in the Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed universe. It shows a “car”, “hovercraft” and “plane”, though we use those terms lightly since these things only slightly resemble what they’re supposed to be.
