Yuri Lowell is one of the best protagonist in JRPG history. This is a remaster I've been waiting on for years.

On topic of the rumor. How does Tales of Vesperia compare to other Tales games? My gold standard is Tales of Symphonia but I also liked Zestiria.

 

How can you possibly have enjoyed Symphonia AND Zestiria? They are polar opposites in terms of game pace. I just can't tell at all what you apreciate from that, but it's likely you will enjoy Vesperia because it's awesome in the same vein Symphonia and Abyss are. Great pace, story, dungeons and characters with the classic and awesome 2D style trademark combat that made the series a hit. I'm dumbfounded on how you could have enjoyed Zestiria after playing Symphonia. I really am.

I personally found Symphonia to be the gold standard and certainly Zestiria did not come close to that (the only Tales game I think that is close Symphonia is Abyss which was also excellent). However, I did like certain elements in Zestiria like how the environments were larger and also being able to battle on the overworld. At the same time I think Zestiria did have a distinct lack of polish and it was quite short (it almost felt rushed, especially towards the end of the game), so while I did enjoy it is certainly not my favorite by any stretch of the imagination.

From the Tales games I have played, these are how I would personally rank them from best to worst but with the caveat that I did enjoy them all:

1. Symphonia

2. Abyss

3. Xillia 

4. Berseria (I have still not finished this one due to time constraints, but I like what I have played of it so far)

5. Zestiria

I should mention I am a tad strange when it comes to stuff like this. For example, when it comes to Paper Mario I found Thousand-Year Door and the N64 one to be the best (and I hope they return to making some more games in the series like that) but I still enjoyed Sticker Star and Color Splash (even though neither is really an RPG anymore; and they are flawed in many ways compared to the first two entries).



Hope this is true. I'd love to have a current-gen version of Vesperia on a console I currently have hooked up.

Ok, that makes more sense. I don't think you are strange at all... just more tolerant with flaws than perhaps other people. But that gives me a better picture. I am sure you will love Vesperia. Along with Symphonia and Abyss, it's the trio of excellent games in the series.

A Tales of Vesperia remake would be nice, although I would like a remake of Tales of the Abyss more (The 3DS remake doesn't count for me because it has worse graphics than the original).

Vesperia is not that outdated and I think the original is still well playable and doesn't really need a remake already.

This isn’t a remake. It’s just a remaster. 

 

A remake like is ffvii R and resident evil remake on GameCube and ps4/Xbox one.

Oh, yeah then this is unnecessary in my opinion. Too early.

I'd put Symphonia, GRACES, and Vesperia as the top three in that order.

Tons of great characters in Graces that are all useful in combat. Loved the badge system, probably the best skill learning system in any game. Get the skills you want and level it up, skip the ones you don't. The dialogue between the characters are some of the best in the series IMO, usually I'll press the button for the skits, but tap through them without listening, but Graces I listened to them ALL. Last but certainly not least the story, I just loved it. The fact that the story takes place over 3 eras, their childhood, their cusp of adulthood, and the epilogue during their actual adulthood is just satisfying.

Vesperia, I really liked Yuri, but everyone else was kind of a pain in the butt to take into battle. We might get Flynn who will also be great to take into battle, but compared to loving everyone's attack style in Graces to liking only one in Vesperia kinda was a letdown, which is why it takes third. Story was also meh, interesting but not very fleshed out.
