Tales of Vs. Has 35 Characters Covering 13 Games

By Spencer . April 7, 2009 . 6:13am


Namco Bandai’s Tales fighting game will include 35 characters from 13 different Tales of games. The series list begins with Tales of Phantasia, the origin of the Tales series, and ends at last year’s Tales of Hearts. It appears the number will cover all of the “mothership” titles plus Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World.


Four characters have been confirmed: Shing (Hearts), Yuri (Vesperia), Luke (Abyss), and Richter (Dawn of the New World). An original story with full voice acting will tie the characters together in Yggdrasil Battle Mode.


Outside of the main mode Tales of Vs. will have a mini-game mode and mobile content data connectivity. This could mean cell phone connectivity, perhaps releasing passwords like Dissidia: Final Fantasy. Since neither feature was explained we’ll have to wait for a future report. In the mean time try and guess the remaining 31 characters before Tales of Vs. comes out in the summer.

    -_- +1 for PSP. Too bad I still can’t convince myself to get a PSP when I still got a few games to play on the DS, on top of waiting for a white American DSi.

    I think we can expect Arche and Klarth to be present, right? I mean, being from the first game and all. Maybe not necessarily Klarth, but Arche is a given.

    This is actually quite interesting. I have other reasons for wanting a PSP, but this might just be the official excuse I needed. Let’s see if i can find one for cheap.

    I would like to see how magic and heal/light users battle vs all the combo tanks.
    Does no one here have a PSP?!

  • Lloyd Irving, guaranteed.
    EDIT: Not that this is a surprise, since that’s Lloyd on the left in the first screenshot up there.

    • Actually, the character in the screenshot is Shing from Tales of Hearts. Lloyd is pretty much guaranteed to be in this though.

  • Fonic

    Hopefully Tear, Guy, and Judith will be in it. Leon and Kratos are guaranteed.

  • Oh lord, this game will have too many characters with majinken.

  • Vrakanox

    Zelos and Kratos will probably be in it.

  • Whorl

    What the hell at second screenshot. 5 hit combo = 148 damage which is like half their maximum 300 HP..
