What Can Kotaku Tell Me About These Tales Of Graces Vids?

Dear Japanese role-playing game gods, let Namco Bandai bring Tales of Graces to the US soon. I need to get the lingering yuck of Dawn of the New World out of my Wii.

Regrettably my Japanese has deteriorated so badly I have almost no idea what's going on in either video. However, I'm sure Tales fans will see a lot of familiar motifs to fill in the gaps. And of course you could argue that you don't need to be able to read the subtitles to know what's going on in a Tales game — the world is in danger, there's some elaborately-dressed individuals with fabulous, physics-defying hair, "OMG, don't kill yourself!" and so forth.

Seriously, sign me up. And please, take a stab at interpreting the text in these vids for me. Specifically, what's up with that sprocket the guy picks up during this gameplay vid:

P.S. BoA theme song for the win!


    Was Dawn of the New World really that bad? And when does it come to Australia dammit -_-

      It sucks that we get left out when it comes to games aye...

        Sucks and blows...sigh.
        Maybe I'll just learn Japanese and move...

    I loved DotNW. ALOT. I played 8 hours straight one time. I havent finished it tho, so i might not be the greatest reviewer. I dotn know why people didnt like it.

      Given that all Tales of games are the same, Symphonia 2 is not all that bad.

      I enjoyed it.

    There is a translated/subbed version of the first video on youtube

      CURSE my work for blocking youtube!
      So much of this site is youtube videos so when I get to watch trailers like the ones above coz they're through GT I get happy!
      But now I'm sad again that I can't watch the subbed version!
