Namco Bandai has announced that Tales of Graces, the most recent flagship Tales title, will be released for the Nintendo Wii in North America in Q1 2011. Tales of Graces has been anticipated by North American Tales fans, but ran into snags in Japan when it was recalled due to game-breaking bugs on the original disc.
The developers have stated that the Tales of Graces North American localization will be based on the updated, bug-free Japanese version, and will contain at least some of the Japanese DLC free of charge. There will also be a change to the Tales combat system for North American gamers, offering optional Wiimote motion control during battles. More information on the North American version and new control scheme will become available closer to Tales of Graces' launch date.
