Namco Bandai announced on their site today that they will be postponing the release of Tales of the Abyss 3DS.
Due to "various unprecedented circumstances", as Namdai put it, the release of Tales of the Abyss 3DS, which was supposed to be this May 19th, will be postponed until further notice. For now, they have set the game's release to TBA (to be announced) again. No details were given as to what specific reasons will delay the game's release. Most speculations point to the recent earthquake and tsunami that Japan had to go through.
