Namco Bandai site update: A Tale of Two Richards
posted on 01.25.11 at 08:29 AM EDT by (@salromano)

Namco Bandai’s glyph teaser site is no longer a glyph teaser site. The glyph’s meaning was solved by Tales fan Zachary Cantrell last night bringing a new URL to light.

The URL: http://ataleoftworichards.com/.

Interestingly, Richard is a character in Tales of Graces F. He is portrayed as both an adult and as a child in the game. Two Richards.

This reveal will most likely end up being Tales of Graces F. The image now displayed on the site (shown above) looks to be a smeared image of the game logo. You might not see it at first, but it becomes clear when dropped in a black background (via NeoGAF).

Yep. That’s Tales of Graces F.

    Seems like I won’t need that jailbreak ps3 after all!

    Hope this doesn’t mean they’re not bringing over Vesperia PS3. As much as I want Graces F, bringing over a port of a Wii game isn’t that great a representation of the franchise. Especially when we live in a world where a good amount of consumers won’t buy a game because it doesn’t look nice graphically.

      Don’t forget about those who won’t support Tales of Vesperia because they will see it as old 360 game. I could be wrong but Tales of Graces F has a better chance and the game looks good.

      The same could be said of bringing the port of a game that we got *three years ago* instead of something completely new, and what the majority of fans have been asking for (I’ve got the numbers to back that up). Hooray for negativity, indeed.

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s not Vesperia, but this is SUPERB!!! If Graces F is really coming out, I swear, I’m buying 2 copies, making all of my friends get the game, and promis to never trade in or sell any used Namco/Bandai game as long as I live!

    Hey, it’s one more game that somebody can’t buy used lol!

    This is a step in the right direction for NB.

    We, the fans, have to go out and buy the game, so they will bring over more Tales games in the future.

  • Chainermike

    Maybe I’m reading too much into it but does the tale of “TWO” richards mean they might localizing both graces and graces F?

  • Rydak

    Invert the colors and you can clearly see the F.

    Yes! I knew bracing myself for disappointment would work :) this really is awesome news, I know alot of people wouldn’t have minded if it was just Xillia, but I really did want to experience Graces, and Graces F none the less woopwoop :D

    Bamco are actually delivering for the fans for once, surreal.
