Here's a round-up of the Tales of Hearts R news for the week.
First off, gerontologist the official box-art for Tales of Hearts R has been revealed. As expected, it has the same main visual revealed before in Jump.
The new scans of Famitsu also have the main visual in color, along with a Dual Hi-Ougi/Mystic Arte for Beryl and Kohak/Amber - Soukou no Warutsu (Waltz of Blue and Red). New key characters (mainly villains) from the game are also introduced, plus new DLC costumes and attachments: a formal suit for Calcedny, that sports wear costume and glasses attachment for Beryl, a rose attachment for Innes, and a cat ears attachment and swimwear costume for Hisui/Jadeite. The swimsuit costume is, by the way, part of the bonus for having save data of the demo. Famitsu has put up their article for this.
A gameplay video for Tales of Hearts: Infinite Evolve, the main pre-order bonus for Hearts R, is also now available. Check it out below:
