Namco Bandai says Patty was never meant for Tales of Vesperia 360
Is Patty the lady pirate coming to the Xbox 360 version of Tales of Vesperia? As if it wasn't bad enough that the PlayStation 3 version will be getting her for sure, word's been going around that she will be coming the the green console as well -- a rather big tease, they'd say.
First "circumstantial evidence": a woman's pirate hat inside a drawer. A message was found, but it was cut off. What was seen, however, were the letters "Pa...". And then some Japanese compu-sleuths examined the ISO in hex editors and found a mysterious "PAT" callout within.
It could be Patrick Starfish for all we know, but fans would much rather have Patty, am sure.
Because there's so much assumptions going on, Japanese tech news site IT Media decided to go straight to source, Namco Bandai, from which they got a flatout denial that Patty was ever coming to the 360 but was cut out. "Absolutely not. The text does appear in the game, but it does not refer to Patty."
But will there ever be a changce to have Patty, along with other PS3-exclusive Vesperia features jumping aboard the 360 via DLC? "That is currently unknown," said the NB rep.
We'll let you know once it does get known.
