Two new, two old. Tales for (nearly) everyone. For Sony consoles Namco Bandai has Tales of Destiny: Director’s Cut on the Playstation 2 and Tales of Rebirth heading to the PSP in early 2008. Tales of Rebirth was released on the Playstation 2 early in the console’s life cycle and it looks like the PSP game is going to be a PS2 to PSP port.
Nintendo gets the new stuff, Tales of Innocence on the DS this winter and a new game in the Tales of Symphonia series for the Wii in spring ‘08. Tales of Symphonia: Knights of Ratatosuku (temporary name) looks quite different from Tales of Symphonia on the Gamecube. The slick looking cel-shaded graphics were replaced with basic polygons. The single screenshot may not be the shining moment for the Wii’s first Tales game, but all it needs is good motion control and multiplayer to be a hit with fans.
