Tales of Vesperia - Intro

The intro to Tales of Vesperia, which was unveiled June 10-ish at a Microsoft event in Japan has made it to the internet. It has been posted on YouTube by the user sa2kigg. You can view it by clicking here, along with 2 and a half minutes of Kane wo Narashite, the Japanese-language version of Ring a Bell.

And as far as the Abyss anime adaptation story goes, the massive encyclopedic Anime News Network has posted their own news story about the rumor.
Let's hope this one turns out to be true!
