THE BUZZ: By pre-ordering upcoming Namco Bandai Japanese RPG Tales of Graces f at GameStop, you’ll get bonus classic character outfits and a special XMB theme.
EGM’s TAKE: The classic outfits for main characters Asbel, Sophie, and Richard come straight from Tales of Destiny 1 & 2—which, to be fair, might not be too well known here in the States at this point. Still, for hardcore Tales fans, that is a nice little nostalgic bonus.
As well, you’ll be able to deck out your PS3 in Tales goodness with a customized Tales of Graces f theme, which GameStop tells us features “graceful icons and dynamic wallpaper”, via which we’ll “live and breath Tales of Graces f in-and-out of the game!”
And now, I’ll use my final amount of allotted words to say once again how much I utterly hate in-game pre-order bonuses—especially when they’re only available at one specific retailer. Thanks world. Thanks a lot.
