Watch – Tales of Innocence trailer

By Spencer . September 26, 2007 . 11:49am

A year after Tales of the Tempest, Namco Bandai is about to release another Tales game on the DS. Instead of putting Dimps in charge of the sequel, Tales of Innocence is in the hands of Alfa Systems who developed Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology.


Most of the Tales of Innocence trailer is anime, but there is some gameplay footage in there. The combat footage is looking pretty good with 3D models and fluid action. Now the question is will Namco Bandai localize this? If your language skills are up to par you can skip the wait and go the import route. Tales of Innocence comes out in Japan on December 6. Otherwise hope that the game sells well and grabs enough media attention for Namco Bandai to give it a world wide release.

    Tales of the Tempest was nothing to write home about. It won’t be hard to do better this time around.

    I had seen it before… but it really looks awesome for DS; I just have two queries:

    1. the character designs, although better than some tales (*cough* tempest *cough*) are not that good, I wish they weren’t so… young.

    2. Voice acting; I know they’re 13/15 year olds but still… they sure sound like it, and I wish they didn’t.

    Some Japanese RPG’s really need a more adult touch these days.

    Other than that… looks ace, I love the fact that it’s the Symphonia/Abyss/Radiant Mythology system fitted in there, a sight to see; still, I hope the next “big” tales game is a home console one tough (and preferably for my platform of choice). This looks ace, but I really want to see a big Team Symphonia Project (this is from Alpha Systems)

    I didn’t realize the DS Tales games were neither developed by Team Destiny or Team Symphonia.

    It’s kind of lame to outsource your game development and slap your brand sticker on the result.

    I agree…

    I wouldn’t knock this game just because Team Destiny/Team Symphonia aren’t behind it. Alfa Systems did a good job on developing ToR: Radiant Mythology sans the game’s problems, so I’m sure they’ll be handling things well in Tales of Innocence.

  • Pedro Silva

    Alpha Systems is good, and this game is taken by Namco Bandai as a main Tales games, Tempest wasn’t taken that seriously and was outsourced for Studio Dimps.

    My gut feeling tells me this will be good.
