Imageepoch Ready To Reveal Tale Of The Last Promise?

By Spencer . November 19, 2010 . 10:18am

imageNext week, Imageepoch will reveal a lineup of games. The developer of Luminous Arc and Last Ranker will show eight titles at a press conference.


One of them is probably Black Rock Shooter. Another might be Tale of the Last Promise. While unannounced, Imageepoch filed a trademark for Tale of the Last Promise in Japan.


The title certainly has a RPG ring to it, which shouldn’t be too surprising. Imageepoch is gung ho about developing JRPGs.

  • All the rpgs/srpgs they have made are good, and they always (even if its not much of a big deal) have something new in their games, im looking forward to this!Also… i want luminous arc 3 T.T, why Atlus, why!?

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Well, if those earlier hints of Spencer’s are true the reason we didn’t get an announcement might just be either they are opening up a US branch or did align with someone totally. Perhaps atlus, perhaps not — and i will be part of a single announcement.

  • It sounds like a first person shooter or a side scrolling shooter.

    (or it could be a game set in the wild west)

    • Exkaiser

      I’m not actually aware of any shooting games with “monogatari” in the title. Well, besides Cave Story. Probably some obscure shmups?

      It just seems like an odd conclusion to come to.

      • Code

        rarrr, Cave Story w<~!

      • Lol, well, i do hope is a rpg, it does SOUNDS like an rpg

        • Of course it’s an RPG, they’re on the whole thing for a reason.

          Also, bring Last Ranker in english!

  • I’m really hoping for a sequel to Arc Rise Fantasia! Even though the dub was terrifying, playing it through with Japanese voices was awesome! I really enjoyed it! So another game would be awesome!

  • [The Hunter] Doomrider

    Oh boy, here we go!

  • HarryHodd

    Absolutely can’t wait to see what their HD game is.

  • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

    A new Tales game?…Oh wait it’s a new “Tale” game. Will it be Wii? Or the PS3? The WiiS3? Or neither? Which system will get what games, ladies and gentlemen? Step right up and try your hand at The Imageepoch Cons-O-Rama Drama!

    • vadde939

      I’m guessing it’ll be for a portable. 3DS or PSP2 or both.

  • gatotsu911

    If their game is indeed called “Tale of the Last Promise”, I officially coin it the JRPGiest Name Ever.

    • Exkaiser

      Well, it’s technically “Saigo no Yakusoku no Monogatari,” but that would be the translation.

      It is very JRPGy.

      • the story of the last promise….!!!! Mwahahahha!

    • neocatzon

      we can play tales of, last story, and the promised land at the same time!

      • gatotsu911

        Three great games… but do they go great together?
        (With imageepoch at the helm, I’m going to guess the answer is “no”.)

  • godmars

    Forgive me for being centralist, but this isn’t about Japan and JRPGs, JRPGs on the PSP and DS, but JRPs in the Western market on the PS3 and 360.

    That’s where they’re hurting and need to show improvement. Evolution.

  • Yeshua49

    So will we finally have a new Tales of with a chance to be release in the West ?

    • Wrong Tales, yo.

      • Yeshua49

        Image epoch was founded by ancient Tales Studio people + ARF has some similarity with Tales, it might be a Tales-like so who care it do not belong to the Namco serie.

        • I was just pointing out that you’re getting titles mixed up…

          • Yeshua49

            My original post was ironic, it was to point it might be a Tales-like called Tales of (a bit like Xenogears and Xenosaga which are not the same IP but with a lot of similarity) and might be release in the West, if it’s become true and considering the Tales serie situation in the West (thanks to Namco) it would be a symbol.

  • Hopefully something with the name Tales of will get localized.

    • Dimentionalist

      No it won’t. It’s a curse. Namco’s dark powers extend even to other companies.

    • We all know that Tales of Xestia will be localized…for the US

  • Yukito

    Sounds good. Hopefully it is as good as it sounds.

  • joesz

    Hopefully the artwork of the game will be the same as World Destruction.
    I liked that game’s artwork a lot.

    • Rather, hopefully it will be original and innovative, no need to keep similar art styles going in this progressive industry.

      • World destruction has an original and innovative artwork. If you wanna talk about that, animes are a better example -.-‘

      • joesz

        Sorry I’m not an anime expert but I find it very original.Though the main character still somewhat strikes a strong resemblance to the The Last Story’s main character and White Knight Chronicle’s.But its because of their hair or something.
