Welcome to my comprehensive Screenshot Let's Play of Tales of Vesperia.


If you're unfamiliar, the Tales series is a long-running series of JRPGs by Namco that features fast real-time battle systems (often with local co-op multiplayer support!) and tends to focus on their characters and the interaction between them more than the story itself.

Tales of Vesperia was originally released in 2008 for the Xbox 360, and ported to the PlayStation 3 a year later with some additional and changed content. Only the Xbox 360 version was released in English officially. The PS3 version can still be enjoyed in English however thanks to a fan-translation patch and translation guide.


I like the Tales series a lot, so I decided to present one of them to the world. When I started this LP, Vesperia was my favorite Tales game, though that is no longer true by the end of the LP. Not because I like Vesperia any less, but because I like other entries more now -- this LP did go on for multiple years and saw new entires in the series release throughout that timeframe. Vesperia is still cool though, so I hope you enjoy the LP regardless!


This LP shows off the entire game using the English Xbox 360 release, with notable changes and additions made in the PlayStation 3 version inserted where appropriate.

Do note that a lot of this LP was written while the fan-translation of the PS3 version was still ongoing. As such, some translations in the LP may be a bit more rough and not entirely match what was eventually put out in the finished patch and guide.
