My first thought was “wow, these combat scenes look sweet”. My second was, “I can’t believe how much this game has changed.” While Tears to Tiara is a PlayStation 3 game, its origins are a PC game. Here’s the PlayStation 3 trailer, which concentrates on actual gameplay footage minus the adventure scenes.

Now compare that with footage of the PC game.

Aquaplus didn’t just polish the game for the PlayStation 3. The combat system has been completely revamped to make Tears to Tiara a grid based strategy RPG. Japan gets a chance to purchase Tears to Tiara on July 17. No North American release has been announced, but I imagine companies are eying this already. NIS America seems like a possible candidate to localize Tears to Tiara since they are working on PlayStation 3 games, specialize in SRPGS, and have a knack for taking risks with new franchises. They took a risk localizing those Idea Factory and 2D Gust RPGs for the English speaking world.

This is a turn-based SRPG on PS3 which saw a lot of changes when crossing over from PC to PS3. This is an RPG I've been watching for a while, and definitely excited about it. I really hope it does come stateside, but it will probably take around 9-12 months to bring it here.

The release date is July 17th, 2008 for Japan:

I really like the anime artwork.

Looks very good, reminds me of the old Arc the Lads on the PS1. The only problem I can see is the menus look sorta complicated. But I'm looking forward to this. Thanks TMK for bringing this to my attention.

(I am still waiting for another Ogre Battle game though......)

Im a big fan of Strat RPGs. With the overall lack of RPGs in general on the ps3... hopefully this will come to the US and not be lost in the RPG abyss of the Pacific ocean -_-

We'll be getting Disgaea 3 soon and Valkyria Chronicles will be coming in November. We might get Agarest Senki here. But getting Tears of Tiara will be nice too, but I'm not expecting it until 2009 here.

Looks awesome, and I'm a sucker for SRPGs.

Why is Playstation 3 written out in western characters throughout the trailer?

Well, despite it saying "PLAYSTATION 3" in English, that's how it's usually mentioned within Japanese text for most any game.

Ditto. :)

There's no guarantee it will come stateside, but most likely. You know Japanese don't you (wish I did)? ;)

This looks good. I'll have to brush up on my Japanese if they don't translate it.

Oh, and Mana, is that Lloyd's friend from Tales of Symphonia?

Oh course. ;) I really like Genis.

I should learn Japanese so I can import games.
