... and that means the Japanese version, guys. The game is officially out, and if you'll browse around, a whole bunch of gameplay/battle videos are up on YouTube and NicoNicoDouga (if you have an account). Good news is I -think- I'll be able to get ToS-R's opening up for download... as soon as we get my friend's capture card working, then I have to convert it to DivX, etc.
In the meantime, why not indulge yourself in this new preview of Tales of Vesperia from IGN. The preview talks a bit about the game's storyline, the battle system, and gameplay. You'll also find new videos here.
