Tales of the Abyss is a Nintendo 3DS role-playing game released in 2011 by Namco Bandai. It is a rerelease of the PlayStation 2 video game of the same name. Nintendo Power V267 confirmed that the game would be released in North America.
Very few upgrades were made to the game. No alterations to the story or gameplay were implemented. Fans of the PS2 classic have complained about loading times and dismal frame rate issues with the original, both of which have been addressed with the new 3DS version.
With the game's digital release in Japan, the game received a theme. With purchase of the game on the eShop, people could get the theme for free.
