Does anyone know if Jap voice with English subtext is an option?

I don't know why, honestly. It's easy to do. Alot of PS2 games had the option. Infact, developers main reason for not doing it during the PS2's era was lack of space on the DVD's...but some did it anyways...and Blu-Ray has 50GB+ of storage...and these games end up being 8-12GB in size...lots of wasted space...

ANnoys the hell out of me.

I'd imagine the reasoning these days would be licensing related, not so much space related.

I don't think that's the issue since the game was released in Japan about a year ago.

Kinda curious though, but is the US version of the tales series published by a different company? If so I could understand the licensing related issues.

Don't have much ability to look into it, but according a Playstation.com interview with the producer, Hideo Baba...

"PSB: Many members of the PlayStation community would like to see an option to play the game with the original Japanese voice track. Is this something you've considered including?
HB: I receive so many requests from foreign players for Japanese voice tracks in the Western version! However, there are some difficulties with the company and the voice actors. That said, I will be considering the feasibility of it."

Sometimes there are licensing reasons, or they are trying to save memory space so the Digital Download version isn't huge.
