Namco Bandai has already had a busy day following news this morning that it would be publishing From Software's Dark Souls in 2011 and Armored Core V in 2012. However, the publisher isn't stopping there, and this time it will be fans of Japanese role-playing games that should take note. Namco Bandai has updated its official Tales website to announce that Tales of Graces F is "coming soon" to North America on the PlayStation 3.
Tales of Graces F takes place on Efinea, a planet dominated by three kingdoms competing for the right to rule. After losing a close friend, Asbel, the eldest son of a feudal lord, enlists in a knight's academy in his kingdom's capital to learn to better protect those he loves. Asbel's father subsequently dies, and Asbel then takes his place as a feudal lord, and the adventure begins.
Tales of Graces originally saw release on the Wii in Japan in December 2009. The game was followed by Tales of Graces F for the PlayStation 3, a game that sold more than 250,000 units in Japan within two weeks of its release in December 2010.
