The Tales of the World: Reve Unitia site updated with videos for Luke and Tear.

ToH-R NA Release Date

As a follow up to last post, Tales of Hearts R will indeed be released on November 11 in North America.

ToH-R EU Release date+A few new screens

Tales of Hearts R has been announced to be released in Europe on November 14. Also there are some new screenshots. I want to clarify something here: Bandai Namco confirmed with us that the game will have after battle subtitles.
(One can guess that the game will be released in NA around Nov. 11 based on the past few releases, but I'll wait for BanNam to confirm that since it could just as easily be the Tuesday after instead of before)

What the ESRB has to say about ToX2

As per the uh...somewhat recent tradition I started, I'm putting up the rating summary that the ESRB made about Tales of Xillia 2 (I don't know when it was put up, but I only just thought to check it so here we are).
As we know from the boxart, the game is rated T (ages 13+).

Content Descriptors: Blood, Mild Language, Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol, Violence

Rating Summary: This is a role-playing game in which players control a group of characters as they save a fantasy world from destruction. Players engage in group battles using guns, swords, staffs, and magic attacks to kill human enemies and fantastical creatures (e.g., giant insects, wild beasts, large robots). Combat is accompanied by cries of pain, impact sounds, and large explosions. A handful of cutscenes depict characters impaled by blades/spears. Blood is sometimes depicted around corpses and on characters' bodies and faces. During the course of the game, female characters wear outfits that reveal large amounts of cleavage; one sequence depicts a man accidentally grabbing a woman's breasts. The dialogue also includes suggestive/sexual material (e.g., “You know Milla? You have really big knockers!” and “Ah, this must be one of those 'naked bonding experiences' which people always speak of.”). Characters sometimes discuss wine and drinking (e.g., “Speaking of alcohol, this year's batch of spirits seems delightful” and “I've seen him shrug off far stronger liquors”); one sequence depicts a character slurring his speech after tasting liquor samples. The words “bastard” and “dumbass” can be heard in dialogue.
