Development of Namco’s upcoming JRPG remake Tales of Hearts R is well underway. In fact, the game is already 50% complete. This update comes via the latest issue of Famitsu magazine, which also contains a number of other details about the game. For example, battles in the game will transpire in full 3D, as opposed to the 2D battles in the original Tales of Hearts. Furthermore, the game will contain a new Chase Link mechanic which allows you to ‘chase’ an enemy into the air after landing a launcher to continue your assault.
Tales of Hearts R will launch in Japan in Spring of next year.
