Tales of Graces ƒ, is an enhanced port of Tales of Graces for the PlayStation 3 and was released on December 2, 2010. The letter "ƒ" in the name stands for "future". The game includes an additional epilogue which takes place six months after the end of the original story called "Lineage & Legacies" and will solve the remaining mysteries of the game featuring a script three quarters as long as the original story line and is said to be 10 hours long. Other additional contents include additional new story scenes within the original story, improved high definition graphics, new game secrets, new character costumes and new Blast Calibers. The game features several tie-ins with other characters including 4 Code Geass costumes namely Suzaku for Asbel, C.C. for Sophie, Kallen for Cheria, and Zero for Richard as well as a Toro costume for Pascal and a Hatsune Miku costume for Sophie.
Starting on January 12, 2011, an English language localization had been strongly hinted at by Namco Bandai. On the company's official Facebook page, Namco Bandai gave users who followed them a puzzle image that, when solved, gave a URL to a site. The site, ataleoftworichards.com, showed a deformed image that resembled the Tales of Graces ƒ logo when the colors are inverted. Namco Bandai later confirmed that the site is, in fact, legitimate, and would gradually reveal more hints to its purpose throughout the week. Furthermore another website reported more clues have been unraveled as users transformed the images that were posted on the official Facebook page revealing even further hints that a localized version may be coming. On February 2, 2011, the teaser site finally made the message clear, stating "Tales of Graces ƒ, coming soon to North America". It was released in North America on March 13, 2012. The European release was narrowed down to Summer 2012.
