Tales of Hearts R | oprainfall

Tales of Hearts R has been announced for localization to Western regions. The announcement comes via video from Hideo Baba, less than a week after GameStop had the game listed on its website as an exclusive. No information was given about a release date — other than Winter 2014 — or how it will be released.

Tales of Hearts R is the Vita remake of the eleventh mothership title in the Tales series. The game originally released on the Nintendo DS in 2008 for Japan. While it didn’t release in the West, Baba had expressed interest in bringing it over one day.

We expect more information to come soon. We’ll pass it along when it does.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, GameStop does not have the game re-listed on its website yet.
