Funimation is bringing another anime title to North American shores that will have appeal to both gamers and anime lovers alike. Tales of Vesperia – The Movie (also known as Tales of Vesperia: The First Strike) is out today on Blu-ray/DVD combo for fans of the game to grab up and take home. Based on the hit Xbox 360 game Tales of Vesperia (also available on PS3 in Japan only), the film will finally see its North American/English dub debut since originally being released in 2009.
Check out the English trailer below:
In a mythical kingdom, the mighty Imperial Knights harness a magical substance known as Aer to power their weapons and protect humanity from the monsters of the forest. But something strange is afoot; the Aer is somehow changing, causing the wilderness to waste away and stirring the woodland beasts to attack with greater frequency. As danger creeps steadily closer to civilization, two young recruits – Flynn, the rigid son of a fallen hero, and the rebellious and brash Yuri – must ride with their fellow Imperial Knights to distant ruins in hopes of uncovering the truth behind the transforming Aer. Some will not survive the thrilling journey. Some will be betrayed. If Flynn and Yuri cannot overcome their differences and learn to fight together, all will be lost for the people of the realm. – Funimation
