Say it isn’t so! Tales of Graces not coming Stateside

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.
