Another blow for Wii owners looking for anything to get excited about outside of Skyward Sword, it looks as if Tales of Graces will not see a Wii release outside of Japan. Tales fansite Kingdom of Tales recently conducted an interview with Tales Studio director Makoto Yoshizumi, and when asked about a Wii localization, he had this to say:
We wish to deliver the best and most complete experience for US and European fans, therefore we’re localizing Tales of Graces f. The game on the PS3 version is on a blu-ray disc. It would be next to impossible to condense all the game’s data on a Wii disc, so unfortunately, there will be no Wii release.
All is not lost however. Tales of Graces f will still be released in the US on the PS3 which will contain an epilogue not found in the Wii original. The content is titled Lineage & Legacies and is said to feature a script three quarters as long as the original story line while adding an additional 10 hours of gameplay.
If you were looking forward to playing Tales of Graces I hope you have a PS3, or a good import shop and a good understanding of the Japanese language.
