Is Namco Bandai Teasing A New Tales Game?

By Spencer . November 4, 2009 . 11:43pm


Namco Bandai is joining the countdown clock party with a game tentatively titled “next RPG Project K”. Project K will be revealed in one week, if Famitsu scans don’t spoil it earlier.


Project K doesn’t ring any bells, but many Japanese bloggers think it will be part of the Tales series. Why? There’s a link to Project K on the Tales portal.


Seems like Namco Bandai is trying to drop hints too. The countdown clock’s URL has “GO_TO_K_66” at the end of it and this batch of faint symbols keeps popping up.




Any ideas?

    Project K reminds me of Rez. And isn’t Namco Bandai the one who publishes Q games in Japan?

    Of course, “RPG Project” kinda makes it impossible…

  • knights of route 66? lol

    New Tales game wouldn’t be surprising, with the rate they chug them out these days.

    • malek86

      Yeah. I always say that Squenix milks Final Fantasy too much, but in comparison to Namco, they actually look tame.

        Yea….no they dont.

        Agreed, I mean what the hell, Tales are like a dime a dozen now. Maybe I’m just slow, still haven’t finished Vesperia yet.. I’m still wondering if I should import Graces, the CD/DLC look tempting.. but I still haven’t finished Arc Rise Fantasia yet.. so hard to get thru RPGs now (and SO4/Magna Carta 2/FFXIII, etc..), I need to stop buying games..

      • Hraesvelgr

        I don’t know if I’d go that far, although Namco certainly has been porting/rereleasing their games a lot lately, and not just Tales.

  • Kevin_Levin

    C’mon Namco. What about Graces in the U.S?

    • BK0000

      It would be nice if they would announce it, but I’m not getting my hopes too high. It really sucks the way Bandai Namco handles the Tales franchise outside of Japan.

    • Still too early for a Graces announcement, the game’s not out in Japan yet.

      I believe, moving forward to 2010, Namco Bandai will start announcing Tales games for the West. The series dragged in Europe and once they’re caught up Namco Bandai will probably synchronize releases.

    K66 = Keroro

    Keroro Gunsou RPG confirmed!

    • bugmeknot

      I concur

    • ShinNoKami

      I would love to see this, I really and truly would.

  • Tales of K’s the main character and his compannion all have names that start with K… omg i think i should start making games, my imagination is too powerfull

    PS: why u had to put tales of hearts for this news D: u reminded me that it will never be seen in america, or so it seems *sniff*

      There’s a fan translation. That’s about as good as it’s going to get.

      • But that translation isnt out yet, is it?
