NP: Tales of the Abyss 3DS coming to North America this fall

Alright, class, open your May 2011 issue of Nintendo Power. That's where you'll find confirmation of the (second) North American release of Namco Bandai's cel-shaded RPG, Tales of the Abyss.

The game first launched on PlayStation 2 in 2005, followed by an English release in late 2006. A 3DS port is set to arrive in Japan later this year, which Nintendo Power reports will be followed by a North American version this fall.

Tales of the Abyss debuted to generally positive reviews, with most criticism targeting the obligatory amnesiac protagonist and the fact that the titular abyss didn't look all that deep, actually. Get ready to push that 3D slider up to MAX, critics!
