Namco: No Official Information on Tales of Vesperia Exclusivity Contract
As you may recall, last week we posted an article that claimed Microsoft had paid for some sort of exclusivity on Tales of Vesperia. Now today, Junior Community Manager Charlotte Toci has retracted that statement on Facebook.
Here's what she has to say on the matter:
A few months ago I replied to a fan who asked me why Tales of Vesperia wasn’t localized in Europe on my Facebook page. I replied that it was because of a Microsoft exclusivity, thinking that that was the reason why, even though I didn’t have any official information on that.
I was wrong to do so, and sadly my reply was relayed on many websites, thus sharing a false information to fans around the web.
I would like to send my sincere apologies to all the Tales Series fans I have wrongly informed, and Microsoft & Namco Bandai for any damage that might have been caused with this.
With that cleared up, perhaps we can eventually get an official statement from Namco in the near future.
