Also, fireguardiancoty (a.k.a. FireG from the Tales Forums) shared with us some very interesting information regarding Tales of Vesperia PS3. fireguardiancoty went to the recent Anime Fest in Dallas, Texas (Sept. 4-7), where Troy Baker, Yuri's English voice actor, was confirmed present as a guest. He was able to have a short word with Troy Baker regarding a localization for Tales of Vesperia PS3. Though he did not give an outright answer, he did mention that he and the other voice actors "were sent back to do recordings of new moves/artes". Could this be a sign that the localization of Tales of Vesperia PS3 is POSSIBLY (read: POSSIBLY, i.e. it can still be a no >.<) being worked on already? This could be a confirmation, but let's not get overexcited here... at least until we get the official word on it.
