Last month, news of Tales characters making a cameo in Venus & Braves PSP remake wound up in the community. How they were going to make their appearance was still a mystery to us. Finally, details on the cameos have been revealed in various Japanese gaming sites around the web.
The Tales characters will make their cameo in the game's Brave Legend mode, a mode unlocked once the main Story mode of the game is finished. A total of 20 characters from 7 different Tales of Series titles will make an appearance. Meeting them will let your characters learn special skills which will feature the Tales characters' cut-ins when used in battle. Above is an example, with Leon meeting up with a Venus & Brave character.
Aside from Yuri, Colette and Leon who were revealed before, the game will also feature Cless Alvein (Tales of Phantasia), Mint Adnade (Tales of Phantasia), Philia Felice (Tales of Destiny), Tear Grants (Tales of the Abyss), Asbel Lhant (Tales of Graces) and Sophie (Tales of Graces). All the characters have their Tales of VS cut-ins, except for Asbel and Sophie who have their original ones. More screenshots here.
The following skills will be available from the characters:
Leon - Majin Messatsuen
Asbel - Maou Engekiha (Infernal Torrent)
Tear - Holy Lance
Cless - Majinken (Demon Fang)
Mint - Nurse
Philia - Twin Bomb
