Namco Bandai Released today a batch of new screenshots and artwork of the upcoming PS Vita remake Tales of Innocence R. They also revealed some new information about the game itself and the characters.
The Game will, as previously announced, use the DI-LMBS battle system (Direct Interaction Linear Motion Battle System), a variation of the system used the most recent Tales titles, that grants direct control on the characters and integrates the touch screen features, letting the player just touch the icons related to the characters to literally push them into action.
The new character included in the game is QQ Selezneva, and despite her appearence she’s 18 years-old. She came from another world and she defines herself an archaeologist. She’s also very interested in local technology.
After her studies she went out into the field to learn from experience and apply her findings. She speaks in a very juvenile way and she has a spear as her weapon of choice.
Several scars on her body show that she’s been fighting a lot and she seems to have the strange habit to hug everyone she meets.
We already know that the game will include a new opening song featuring the voice of the popular singer and songwriter KOKIA, titled will be New Day, New Life. What we didn’t yet know is that the animation of the opening will be created by the critically acclaimed animation studio Production I.G (well known for the Ghost in the Shell series, the Patlabor movie, The End of Evangelion and many more popular anime).
