Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon Cross Is A Double Dose Of Remakes

By Spencer . March 9, 2010 . 11:32pm

image This year Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon, the first direct Tales sequel, turn ten. Namco Bandai is celebrating by remaking the Game Boy Color game and Tales of Phantasia. Both games will be bundled on one UMD.

 

Shonen Jump notes this Tales of Phantasia remake will have differences like a combat system revision, which makes it different from Tales of Phantasia: Full Voice Edition. The Narikiri Dungeon part has been graphically overhauled and tiny screenshots show four characters fighting at the same time. Didn’t the original game only have three in a party?

 

Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon Cross is due in stores later this year.

    Japan-only, as usual.

    • Masengan

      My thoughts exactly.

      whenever its Tales, its expected… *sigh*

      • jj984jj

        Especially when it’s 2D and on a portable, that’s like taboo for Namco Hometek.

          Hypocritically enough, Namco Bandai localized DBZ: Attack of the Saiyans, which is 2D!

          • jj984jj

            I was talking about Tales specifically. None of the 2D console games on PS2 or PSP ports/remakes as well as Tales of Hearts have made it over, and the only portable game Hometek has brought over is Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology.Thankfully they had just acquired the DB license in North America and have been trying to make the best of that be localizing all their games using that license so far. I doubt that will continue for long though!

    Wait, they’re remaking ToP again? For a system that it’s already on? What the hell guys.

    • Yuan

      Though it’s just treated as a bonus to the main game, its spin-off sequel.
      A nice bonus for those who want to buy the main game and hasn’t play the first game.

  • malek86

    Cool, another TOP remake. Just what we needed. And I bet it will never leave Japan, like the previous version.

    Namco Bandai localization wheel of fortune time!

  • Extra_Life

    Please, Namco, please just localize this version of ToP… I want a legit version of this game that doesn’t lose my saves when the cart battery dies!

    • malek86

      Also, a legit version that doesn’t suck.

  • SoulCaster

    Guys you forget, this is a PSP “Tales of” game, so it has got a good chance of coming over here. Because you know, Namco Bandai seems hell bent on not releasing any of the “Tales of” NDS games here…

    How they ever planned on making “Tales of” series a worldwide success with 90% of them remaining in Japan is beyond my understanding…

      But I think it’s even more difficult because it’s PSP. ToEP wasn’t localized in US, and sales for PSP software seems to be difficult to move the heavy heart of Bannam in US.
      They tried to gain that success again (after ToS) with ToV for XBOX 360 exclusively…

      Good chance? Is this sarcasm? Tales of Eternia PSP was Europe only, and neither Radiant Mythology 2 or Tales of VS were released here. And neither will this, unfortunately.

    • SoulCaster

      At least the PSP got a few “Tales of” games in English, even if one of them was exclusive to Europe. While the “Tales of” games on the NDS have remain exclusive.

      So I sort of have this mentality that PSP “Tales of” games equal hope for an English release while NDS “Tales of” games equal not a chance in hell…

      Everybody knows by now that IT’S OVER 9000 times busy with Dragonball, to the point Namco Bandai has been willing to neglect its ‘flagship’.

  • thebanditking

    Great! Chances of western release, slim to none. Curse you Bamco……..

    Sounds tasty, can’t wait to get my hands on it ;)

  • Pichi

    Very close to not caring about Tales titles because of Namco Hometek.

    • vall03

      same here, sooner or later, if none of the newer games starts to get localized, Im seriously going to ignore the whole series like they didnt even exist…

    • Saturnus

      No kidding, I’m getting tired of this crap.

  • rock1644

    At this point, I am just going to wing it and play these games in Japanese. I am sick of Namco not bringing their Tales games out here because they expect them to sell like Final Fantasy, despite the fact none of the games have even come close to that series’ sales.
