Update: Namco Bandai has confirmed via the official Tales Series page on Facebook that the pre-order bonuses listed below will be available not only in Canada, but in the United States as well.
With all sorts of high-profile games coming out early in the year – Final Fantasy XIII-2, The Darkness II, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, Mass Effect 3 – some may find it difficult to think of a reason to purchase Tales of Graces F before others. Namco Bandai is hoping to convince potential buyers to do just that with exclusive pre-order bonuses.
When Tales of Graces F is pre-ordered at EB Games in Canada, the buyer will receive several goodies upon the game’s release. Not only will he or she receive a Tales of Graces F-themed theme for their PlayStation 3, they will also receive codes to download costumes from the PlayStation Store for use in-game. The costumes are all based on characters from Tales of Destiny and Tales of Destiny II– Asbel will be dressed as Kyle Dunamis, Sophie will appear similar to Rutee Kartrea, and Richard will be dressed in Judas’ attire. The set of costumes can be seen above.
So far, the bonuses have only been confirmed for Canadian EB Games stores; there has yet to be any announcement of the bonuses elsewhere. Tales of Graces F releases on March 13 for the PlayStation 3 in North America, with a European release dated for sometime this summer.
