Namco Bandai is gearing up to release a remake of Tales of Hearts, which originally made its debut on Nintendo DS in 2007. Currently slated for a 2013 release in Japan, Tales of Hearts R shakes things up a bit with 3D character models, new story events, full voicing, a new character named Calcedony Arkham, and more.
Thanks to the first promotional clip, you can get an early look at that new character and other aspects of the remake below.
A while back, Namco Bandai filed a U.S. trademark for Tales of Hearts, which has yet to see release in any form in North America. Hopefully this means there’s a chance for the remake to see light in the west eventually!
