Release Date Revealed Early For Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon XOnline retailer Gamestar beats Namco Bandai to the punch.06.02.10 - 7:20 PM
The release date has been leaked for upcoming PSP title Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon X
by online retailer Gamestar. The game will be hitting Japanese retailers on August 5, carrying a Ľ5,480 ($59.18 US) price tag. This is the second time in recent memory that Gamestar has spoiled a release date, the first being when the retailer leaked the release date for White Knight Chronicles 2
ahead of Famitsu magazine.
The game itself is a two-part package, comprised of a remake of the series' first iteration, Tales of Phantasia, and an updated version of Narikiri Dungeon. In this version of Phantasia, casting spells in battle will no longer cause the action to freeze, meaning that multiple characters will be able to use Artes simultaneously. In addition, characters will be able to backstep, link up to three attacks together, and perform combos with other characters via predefined shortcuts. To compensate, the pace of battle has been accelerated.
There are still no plans for a North American release of Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon X.
