I'm actually really excited for this. I've always liked the Tales series, and Vesperia was easily my favorite one. The game looked great, it featured a slightly older cast with a slightly darker and more mature story, some great voice acting (Troy Baker before he had really become a household name, Michelle Ruff, Sam Riegel, etc.), and a fully realized overworld map (which too many JRPGs have gotten away from).
The game was originally released back in 2008 on 360, and a PS3 port with additional content/playable characters was released in Japan in 2009, and the English voice actors were brought in to do additional voicework for the western release. However, the western release of the definitive edition never happened, with rumors flying that Microsoft had paid to keep the game exclusive to Xbox 360 in western territories. The game was popular enough that this news inspired a multi-year fan project to translate the Japanese PS3 version for western import. However, when said patch was finally released in March 2015, it required that users run an old firmware version and never upgrade, which obviously was something most people weren't all that willing to do.
Now that this new edition has been announced, I'm looking forward to finally being able to play one of my favorite JRPGs ever with new content for the first time. The real question now is the status of the English voicework. Was the additional English VA never used but kept, and all they need to do is plug it back in ten years later? Or will they bring the cast back to record the additional voicework now, again ten years later? Or do they just leave the additional content subtitled but unvoiced? I honestly have no idea. Any of these seems possible.
Although it was announced at the Microsoft E3 press conference, apparently the game will be released on PS4, Switch, and Steam/PC in addition to Xbox One, and thank goodness for that, because I only own a PS4 and am not interested in either of the other two consoles at the moment.
