Last week Namco Bandai quietly released the English version of classic 1995 JRPG Tales of Phantasia onto iTunes. It's just like the fully-voiced PSP version of the game, only with sloppy touch controls, in-app purchases, fewer save points and an always-online requirement. Can we not do this?
Arche from Tales of Phantasia kind of reminds me of Pikachu from Super Smash Bros. what with her ability to call down lighting. The other combatants in these Tales of VS gameplay vids — Asch, Cless, Chester and Caius — also look cool. But when it comes to fighting games, I like my characters cheap and airborne.
