With new content and new characters, those looking to double-dip will more than get their money’s worth. The added joy of having Tales of Vesperia on a portable device elevates to new heights as you can now enjoy all it has to offer at any time and in any place. If you missed out on this gem a decade ago, it is time to rectify that mistake and immerse yourself in one of the finest RPGs to release this decade.
This was the first time I spent a large chunk of time with the Tales franchise, and I think they found a new fan. Tales of Vesperia is a terrific game that fits perfectly on modern consoles, especially my sweet, sweet Switch. It can be a long, complicated game that at times feels like a slog between the monotonous combat and eye-rolling comedy, but ultimately triumphs through its story, jovial attitude, and cast of characters. Not Karol, though. Karol sucks.
Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition remains one of the best Tales of games to date. Once you get through the opening, Vesperia never lets up throughout its 40 to 50-hour runtime. It continuously finds new ways to expand upon its story, allowing for something that feels like a tremendously fun journey. If you’re a fan of JRPGs or action RPGs, do yourself a favor and pick this one up.
