Some people in Japan already have their hands on their copies of Tales of Vesperia PS3, and here are a few tidbits you might like to know:
At the title menu of the game, the game will require you to install 3.36GB worth of data to your PS3's hard drive. This is a somewhat common thing in PS3 games, since loading some data from your hard drive instead of the disc significantly lessens game's loading time.
The mini-game featuring Repede is called "Border/Boarder Repede". There seem to be a lot of courses available for it.
And finally, some of the currently known trophies for the game:
- Perform 150-hit Combo
- Achieve More Than 100 Hours of Game Time
- Move For a Total of 5000km
- Defeat 1000 Enemies

There's also news going around about Flynn being a permanent party member near the end of the game, though I can't be sure.
