Tales of VS.

Check out V Jump version (click for slightly larger view) of the new Tales of VS. info, which confirms the August 6th release date in Japan and reveals even more characters found than the earlier Shonen Jump report. So the characters we have for this round are:

  • Cress (Tales of Phantasia)
  • Arche (Tales of Phantasia)
  • Leon (Tales of Destiny)
  • Philia (Tales of Destiny)
  • Asch (Tales of The Abyss)
  • Jade (Tales of The Abyss)
  • Judith (Tales of Vesperia)
  • Ruca (Tales of Innocence)
  • Lloyd (Tales of Symphonia)
  • Colette (Tales of Symphonia)
  • Mao (Tales of Rebirth)
  • Nanaly (Tales of Destiny 2)

Also shown in the scan is Edit Mode, which allows players to customize the stats of the characters, and Communication Battle via the Ad Hoc Mode. The right most box is Yggdrasill Battle Mode, which is also the story mode, was revealed when the game first announced.

Update: Added more characters (Thanks Yuan)

    There’re Lloyd, Colette, Phillia and Mao (2 latter ones’ character portraits are seen in Battle screen) in that scan.
    So there’re 20 officially confirmed characters now.

    15 more huh…
    If it is given by no. i say an average of 2 characters per series
    I can say that Suzu might be in it since i can see a clear video of her in the trailer
    That might make 14
    So eternia & legendia has yet to have offical characters in game

    rebirth/heart/Innocence/Destiny2 maybe 1 more

    ToS2:Emil(probably)

    That leaves 5 more character slots

    @Thien: You’re welcome :D
    @Judgement8: Well, if you zoom the battle screen with Arche flying (Arche’s introduction upward), you can see Mao’s (2nd from left) and Philia’s (the rightmost) portrait in that battle screen.

    But actually, this scan is too small, so we can’t see it clearly ^^’
    I saw the one taken with phone camera, so it’s clearer.

    @Luke: Well, aside from those officially announced, there’re about 10 characters which 2ch dweller got from analyzing the 2d screen and rough art from the trailer (like Senel and Kohak). So, maybe there’re about only 5 unknown.

    So….I guess mages,archers,and healers are in huh?THAT’S AWESOME!Now there’s a chance ANY character could get in if popular enough.They really should put Veigue in because he’s cool and he’s the main character.I think they should have left out Asch as he has most of Luke’s moves.They REALLY need to put Sheena in.Awesome,Edit mode.Now we could probably see a **SPOILLERR** Judas costume for Leon.Maybe some costumes from Abyss in this game.They should give us a video of a whole fight from the game.

    Hm the story is like moving about a map to fight i think
    Well reckon the remaining 5 characters?
    Maybe 2 of them will be Zelos & Guy
    But that makes ToS&Abyss having lots of characters

    No idea about Sheena but if that happens what skits will be made if those 2 hotties are together?*sweat*

    Wish there is a hotspring skit too lol
