July 9, 2008 - Bad news for those waiting for the latest entry in the long running Tales series of games as Bandai Namco announced the US version of Tales of Vesperia will be pushed back to mid November. The Japanese edition will release as planned in early August.

Producer Yoshito Higuchi had this to say on the delay. "We apologize to our American fans for this unfortunate delay. However, with the state of the Xbox 360 in Japan, we cannot afford to release this game in the United States before it is completely ready for that market. We plan to use these few months to release a game that stays true to the Japanese origins, but fits in the Western market as well. Please continue to look forward to this game. You will not be disappointed."
