Reminder: Tales of Graces f! - 3/13/12

Hey everyone, I just wanted to let you guys know that Tales of Graces f is finally less than a month away! Sadly there hasn't been much advertising for the game so I figured the least I could do is post it here. Over the past few years Namco Bandai has been having trouble getting its games brought over to the US, but after years of begging fans have finally been able to talk them into releasing Graces f!

Now if you're a JRPG fan and you've never tried a Tales of game, well here's your chance!

For anyone who doesn't know, the Tales of games are stand alone titles, much like Final Fantasy, that focus on a real time battle system. Most Tales of games have a battle system that plays like a 2D fighter, although later games added the ability to freely run around the 3D battle arena, but their core style of gameplay is what you would expect from an old fassion JRPG. World map, a great story, side quests, and hours of content. (My favorite being the "skits" which are mini cutscenes that are unlocked as you go throughout the game. It really adds to the character development, and it's also just nice to see the characters commenting on the current events. Heck they'll even comment on how the player either uses them or doesn't XD.)
Anyway each game is different, so check out the trailer for the newest release; Graces f!

Can't wait another month? Well don't forget Tales of the Abyss' 3DS port was also just released!
