Tales of Graces is the 12th mothership title and the newest generation in the Tales series exclusively for the Wii console. It follows lead character Asbel Lhant, who desires to obtain greater strength. Its characteristic genre name is RPG to Discover the Strength to Protect. The opening theme is "Mamoritai: White Wishes" by BoA. There are two versions of this Game: Original and Bugfix version, fixing some crashes and items you are unable to collect in the unfixed Game. A basic English Fan-Translation patch is available (Menus only), the full Translation was halted to support the extended PS3 Release of the game.

Emulation Information

DS Connection Support

While Dolphin does emulate the IOS modules for broadcasting and connecting to the Nintendo DS, there is no infrastructure to actually connect to any emulator or hardware unit.


Random crashes occur with this title even on real Wii hardware. It has multiple releases, the earlier of which is known to crash more frequently. The updated release can be identified by a little blue note on the disc.


Music Issues

Music issues occur after approximately 5 minutes of play, refer issue 4452. Possibly corrected by using LLE.

Language Region Mismatch

Tales of Graces might not start unless the Wii language setting is set to a value matching the region of the game. With Dolphin 5.0-10866 or newer, the language setting will automatically match the region of the game, and there is a new setting (Options > Configuration > General > Allow Mismatched Region Settings) used for optionally disabling this behavior. On older versions of Dolphin (or if Mismatched Region Settings is turned on), you may need to change the Wii language setting manually (Options > Configuration > Wii > System Language) and choose a compatible language by region:

  • Japanese for NTSC-J (STGJAF)


No configuration changes are known to affect compatibility for this title.
