Was Pirate Girl Cut From Xbox 360 Tales of Vesperia? Namco Bandai Says...

The PS3 is getting Tales of Vesperia, and ToV for the PS3 is getting a new character, young pirate girl Patty Fruel. Let's review and hear what Namco Bandai has to say.

A young pirate girl was referenced in the original Xbox 360 version: "Inside the drawer, there's a pirate outfit for girls. A name is written, but it's hard to make out because of heavy wear. 'Pa.....'?" Pa? Hrm, "Patty" starts with "Pa." Patty is also a girl — a girl who wears pirate outfits.

In the memory address of the Xbox 360 version, there appears to be traces of Patty Fruel. As we previously pointed out: in the coding, "YUR" could be understood as being main protagonist "Yuri Lowell", "EST" could be princess "Estelle", "KAR" could be "Karol Capel", "RIT" could be "Rita Mordio", "RAV" could be "Raven", "JUD" could be "Judith", "RAP" could be "Repede" (aka "Rapido" in the Japanese version), "FRE" could be "Flynn Scifo" ("Furen Shifo" in Japanese) and "PAT" could be short for "Patty Fleur."

When asked about the "pirate outfit for girls" scene in the Xbox 360 version, Namco Bandai replied, "Certainly there is that scene, but it does not refer to Patty." When asked whether Patty Fruel was cut from the Xbox 360 version and shifted over to the PS3 one, Namco Bandai replied, "There was nothing of the sort." And finally when asked if Patty Fruel would made available for the Xbox 360, Namco Bandai replied, "There is nothing announced at the moment."
