The title received a VideoGameRemake for the PlaystationVita called ''Tales Of Innocence R''. It featured a revised script (which included more insight into the events of Asura's era), updated graphics, a new opening song, a redesigned battle system and two brand new characters: "QQ Selezneva", a [[AdventurerArchaeologist spirited archaeologist]], and "Kongwai Tao," a quiet spellcaster who dislikes disputes. Yet again, Baba stated they are not exporting this version outside Japan.

Finally, the battle comes down to a duel between Asura and the Ratio general, "[[{{Shinigami}} Reaper]]" Hypnos. Asura uses his trusty blade, the [[TalkingWeapon intelligent]] Holy Sword Durandal, to slay his opponent, and with his last breath Hypnos swears to evaluate the results of Asura's campaign [[{{Reincarnation}} in another life]].

* OfficialCouple: [[{{Tsundere}} Iria]] is the heroine and she and Luca [[ReincarnationRomance were lovers in their past lives]], so she's who Luca is "supposed to" pair off with (and is the easiest to raise friendship with). However, since Luca's RelationshipValues affect the plot (not significantly, but they do), you can opt to instead pair him off with [[CuteBruiser Hermana]], [[LadyOfWar Ange]] or [[AdventurerArchaeologist QQ]]. Or even [[HoYay Spada, Ricardo, or Kongwai]].

* CypherLanguage: The Triverse language Kongwai and QQ are using is actually backwards Japanese. which is noticeable on NewGamePlus.

Added DiffLines:

** The MagicalGirl costume for Luca is also quite revealing. [[{{Fanservice}} Take that]] [[FanDisservice as you will.]]
** And of course there are the swimsuit costumes, which needs no further elaboration.

* ButtMonkey: Although much less than Luca, Spada now has his moments.
** He has plenty of ruined attempts [[BadassBoast to look cool]] in victory poses, usually courtesy of Iria and Hermana (and Luca, at times). Also, one victory pose has Iria mocks him for making Luca worried about him[[note]]Have Spada finish a battle with low HP[[/note]].
** He is the only one whose name QQ doesn't remember. She calls her "weird guy" instead, even after she officially accepted him as her friend ([[CuddleBug by hugging him]]).

*** His attempts at peeking on women in the hot springs always ends badly, be it getting beaten by the girl's elder brother or accidentally hitting on [[DudeLooksLikeALady Kongwai]].
** Ricardo doesn't seem to have it any better.
*** He falls flat to Ange and Hermana's pranks at least twice. The latter (done by Hermana) manages to ruin his [[BadassArmFold victory]] [[BadassBack pose]].
*** The party apparently took notice of his fear of heights and mercilessly teases him for this.

* OneWingedAngel: Those who have lost control of their Avatar power tend become this. [[spoiler:Also Mathias' FinalBoss form in the original, and first form in ''R''.]]



* TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness: The leaders of Arca appears numerous times throughout the game. [[spoiler:That is, before they get offed by Hasta halfway through the story.]]
* OneWingedAngel: Those who have lost control of their Avatar power tend become this. [[spoiler:Also Mathias' FinalBoss form in the original, and first form in ''R''.]]



* SteamPunk - The setting is more industrialized turn-of-the-century than MedievalStasis with LostTechnology, a rarity for the series.

* DudeLooksLikeALady:
** Kongwai, saved by the virtue of his obviously-male voice. Just don't say that to his face, as some poor [=NPCs=] find out in hard(?) way.

* [[spoiler:FusionDance and SplitPersonalityMerge: Luca and Mathias in the ending.]]



* CompressedAdaptation: The manga leaves out significant portion of the story, especially the parts involving the events of Asura's era. In addition, the party now merely consists the main trio and the rest (Ange, Hermana, and Ricardo) doesn't join in until very late, and most of their backstories are not mentioned at all.

to:

* CompressedAdaptation: BigDamnHeroes: Several counts, surprisingly.
** First, when Spada and his friends raiding the Avatar research facility Luca and Iria are locked in. [[spoiler:This sadly gets botched when Mathias kills most of the hostages just so the main trio will awaken their memories, however.]]
** Later, Ricardo saving Luca from Avatar-possessed Garam soldiers, regardless of [[IWasJustPassingThrough his actual objective.
** Luca saving Iria and Spada from the Gigantess.
** Again with Luca, when he delivers Spada's weapons just in time during the battle against Hasta.
* CompressedAdaptation and PragmaticAdaptation:
The manga leaves out significant portion of the story, story as well as altering many elements of it, especially each characters' role as well as the parts involving the events of Asura's era. In addition, the party now merely consists the main trio and the rest (Ange, Hermana, and Ricardo) doesn't join in until very late, and most of their backstories are not mentioned at all.


Added DiffLines:

* DistressedDamsel / HostageSituation: The manga is not kind at all to Ange regarding this matter. To be fair, she could've avoided such situation, but she willingly goes to keep the Avatar children under her care safe.
* [[spoiler:FusionDance and SplitPersonalityMerge: Luca and Mathias in the ending, allowing him to activate the Manifest.]]


Added DiffLines:

* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:Hasta is now fought in his Gae Bolg form. Also, Mathias.]]

Added DiffLines:

[[folder:Tropes for the Manga]]
* AdaptationalBadass: In the game, Luca is a badass [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass in his]] [[CowardlyLion own way]], but the manga amps this to the point of him stopping a sword ''by letting it through his hand'', not to mention his MadeOfIron trait taken even further.
* CompressedAdaptation: The manga leaves out significant portion of the story, especially the parts involving the events of Asura's era. In addition, the party now merely consists the main trio and the rest (Ange, Hermana, and Ricardo) doesn't join in until very late, and most of their backstories are not mentioned at all.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Despite being much shorter, the manga doesn't joke around at all. For starters, the viewers are given a glance of how ''horrible'' the treatment to the Avatars are, and the villains (barring Chitose) are depicted in much less sympathetic way, such as Mathias [[spoiler:mercilessly killing the hostage Avatars as well as ''her own followers'', and Hasta's [[OffWithHisHead brutal]] way of killing the higher-ups of Arca.]]
* GoodIsNotSoft: Luca loses his hesitation to fight much earlier due to his wish to protect Iria and his friends, but it doesn't mean he always goes head-first for violence, as shown with [[spoiler:the remaining of Gardel/Thanatos' spirit and even Mathias.]]
* KnowledgeBroker: Hermana, who also doubles as MiserAdvisor this time.
* LaResistance: Spada leads one against the military, with their mission is to rescue the hostage Avatars.
* NiceHat: Sadly, Spada loses his trademark hat during said Avatar jailbreak.
* MamaBear / ParentalSubstitute: The orphanage that Hermana runs in the game? It is now taken care of by Ange. In fact, this is pretty much the reason she destroys the Naos Church, so the orphanage remain hidden.
* TookALevelInKindness: Iria doesn't bully Luca at all, and it helps that Luca is much less timid than his game counterpart.

** During the first meeting with Chien, he is referred to as "Dog Boy" by Hermana. Ange tells her it's not nice to call him like that and proceeds to ask Chien his name. While calling him "Dog Boy". This is apparently removed in ''R'', though.

* RefusalOfTheCall: Instead of descending into EvilLaugh like in the original, Luca does not take the awakening of his power very well at first, especially due to the fact that the Ratio Avatars are now [[CursedWithAwesome out for his blood]].

* DiscretionShot: PlayedForLaughs with whoever manages to push Kongwai's button. We will never know whatever he does to them, and at one point he smiled cheerfully upon being asked what happened (offscreen), the party found it unsettling to the point they chose not to pursue the matter further.

* MysteriousBacker: Kongwai.
* NewGamePlus: ''Almost'' required, actually. Replaying the game with the clear data will not only unlock the BonusLevel and additional stuffs (such as skits and costumes), but also Style elements only available in subsequent runs. It also gives TranslationConvention to QQ and Kongwai's otherworldly dialogues, which [[spoiler:reveals that they are actually enemies and only [[EnemyMine forced to work together]] for the time being]].
