Namco Bandai has announced the PAL territories release date for Tales of the Abyss, confirming the game will arrive in European and Australian stres on the 10th November 2011. They also released a bunch of new screenshots to celebrate the announcement.
The 3DS version of Tales of the Abyss is a remake of the popular PS2 entry in the Tales series which adds full 3D support and new tweaks to the gameplay to make it better support the dual screens the 3DS can offer. In addition, it's also handy to be able to take such a game in your pocket with you.
Namco Bandai sent down a lovely story blurb for those of you who never experienced the PS2 original: "Tales of the Abyss tells the story of Luke fon Fabre, sole heir to a family of aristocrats, as he is suddenly thrust into the outside world on an epic adventure. Naïve and spoiled by years of isolation, Luke struggles to learn of friendship, sacrifice, duty and of choice. With the fates of many in his hands, Luke's actions could ultimately save the world or bring about its very destruction."
