Tales of Hearts R is 50 percent complete, has 3D battles

Details on the PlayStation Vita remake's Chase Link Mode.

First details on Tales of Hearts R have come out of Famitsu this week. Development on the game is currently 50 percent complete. Battles, like the rest of the game, are in full 3D.

New to the PS Vita remake is Chase Link Mode. When you fulfill conditions during an attack, the character you’re operating switches into Chase Link Mode. After an enemy has flown up into the air, there is a moment where you can close in and overtake the enemy. Also, there is something similar to the Overlimit Gauge on the left side of the screen the same as seen in Tales of Vesperia.

The following Artes are discussed, and mysterious cut ins for Shing and Calcedny are also introduced.

  • Shing Meteoryte – Soaring Parry
  • Jadeite Hearts – Needle Sparrow
  • Calcedny Arcome – Blue Blade

Images shown in Famitsu are the same as the ones shown in Jump.

Thanks, Tale Tale Source.
