The Tales Japanese role-playing series is being immortalised in footwear. See how Yuri Lowell from Tales of Vesperia and Leon Magnus from Tales of Destiny inspired these shoes?
In the West, Tales of Vesperia was released on the Xbox 360. Only. In Japan, it was released on the Xbox 360, forcing Japanese people to buy Microsoft’s console. Then, a year later, it was released on the PS3.
Namco Bandai’s “Tales” franchise is quite popular in Japan. It’s so popular that Tales of Vesperia caused the Xbox 360 to sell out in Japan — quite a feat considering the sluggish sales in the region.
