Tales of Hearts R's Chase Battle Mechanics Detailed, Trailer
It's time to fly!
11.21.12 - 10:27 AM

New details have been released today about Tales of Hearts R's battle system. It has been entirely reworked from the DS (which is a crime, in my opinion) and now features a fully 3D arena, like other titles in the series. That's not at all a bad thing, though the 2D version did have some serious style. Anyway...

New mechanics have been added to the fights, specifically the 'Chase' system. Using the Chase Link, you can continue to combo while in the air and fly towards your targeted enemy. During your mid-air combos, it's also possible for one of your ally icons to flash. When it does, you can tap on them to do a Chase Cross attack. By holding down the attack button you can also perform a Chase Finisher.

Namco also shared a brief promo video for the game.

Tales of Hearts R is due for release in Japan in spring of 2013. No news yet on a release elsewhere.
