Tales Of Hearts R Will Only Have Japanese Voice Overs

The first Tales game to make it to Vita on our shores, Tales of Hearts R, will only feature Japanese voice acting with English subtitles.

Today during our Bandai Namco appointment at E3, the company talked about its excitement for Tales of Hearts R to release in the West and confirmed an interesting tidbit. Fans have often told Bandai Namco that they prefer the Japanese voice overs and want the company to include them as much as possible in its North American localizations. For Tales of Hearts R, Bandai said they could only do one or the other and that fan feedback guided them to only use the Japanese voice overs.

Tales of Hearts R is due out this winter. You can check out the newest screens and trailer below.

What do you think of Bandai Namco's decision to not include English voice overs?
