Just announced at Day 2 of Tales of Festival 2018, Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition will be getting a whole bunch of collaborative content in Japan!
Just like in the West, Tales of Vesperia Remaster, the name of the Definitive Edition in Japan, will also be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC via STEAM.
Tales of Vesperia Remaster ~10th Anniversary Edition~ and the old Tales PS3 DLC Costumes
Announced at the event is that the remaster will be getting a special edition dubbed "10th Anniversary Edition" in Japan. More information on this will be available at a later date. They didn't indicate if this would be multiple special editions like the previous games (Lalabit, Famitsu, etc) or if it would be just one edition, or if it'd be for a particular platform only.
In addition, the game will be getting the previously available Tales of the Abyss costumes from the PS3 version as DLC, which has Yuri dressed as Asch, Estelle dressed as Tear and Flynn as Luke from Tales of the Abyss. They were originally a pre-order bonus of the PS3 version, then later became payable DLC costumes with the Abyss characters' hair colors.
