    Well, that was certainly a thinly-veiled threat…
    I don’t have proper recording equipment, so come on, friends! Send in those skits or else we won’t get any more Tales games!

    • DesmaX

      You just need to send an image

    • Draparde

      he said “I” i think it was a joke in ragards to himself being to sad to visit~

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

  • Nice that they’re involving the overseas fans, hope there are some good ones to show how big the Tales series is outside Japan

  • NTaiyokun

    Though too bad only original characters. SORRY SHIPPERS

    • DesmaX

      You can use any tales character that you want (Even from games that weren’t localized). But you still have to draw your own images

      • John Diamond

  • Edgar Roni Figaro

    This is a good way of showing just how many fans are here the U.S!

  • cloudcaelum

    So they want fan art?

  • MyBodyIsReady

    “If I receive very few skits…I will probably feel too sad to go to Europe and America again :(” Lol aww..

  • Nitraion

    If only im good at drawing….

  • Marcelo Gouvea

    “OH BOY! I can’t wait to send in my submissions! And I’ll get my friends to send theirs too! Man, this is gonna be so fun! Let’s see, rules…

    …WHAT DO YOU MEAN Brazil isn’t in the list of countries that can participate?

    F-Fine…I didn’t want to participate in your stupid contest anyway *sniff*

  • Letiumtide

    The one thing that bothers me the most is that I actually really want to be a part of this… but it’s only on facebook, which I won’t participate in. So now I’m as sad as he is if he doesn’t get enough skits. =[

    • InfernoCommander

      No reason not to. Make some random account that you don’t plan on using and submit an image to em.

  • JustThisOne

    FSADSDSFFFAAUAUUUGGGHH! *rockets off into space*

    I’m totally down for this. I won’t disappoint you, Hideo Baba! Contest rules say one entry per household a day… I will flood your contest with entries! Flood them!

    • Anon

      That means voting. You can only upload one skit.

      • JustThisOne

        … Are you sure? :V

        The NBGE Facebook Contest Game “TALES OF – SKITS CONTEST” is opened at the rate of one entry form per household (same name, same e-mail address) per day. Participants can sponsor Facebook friends. Any additional participation will be rejected.

        Crap. Now I’m not sure. The “entry form” bit sounds like it implies that multiple entries are possible. But then participation could just be voting. @[email protected] Ahh, what to do…

        • Anon

          I realize there is no proof of it but I’m a community manager for Namco Bandai Games Europe launching this contest, and yeah you can only upload one skit :) (there’s one prize pack per winner). Do your best!

          • JustThisOne

            Ah, I see. Thanks for the clarification! I’ll try my best!

            Oh god, now I have to figure out how to be funny… U..uhmm… jokes.. jokes.. knock knock skits? ;__;

          • Kitestwinblades

            Your Shizue Higuchi was awesome and had great personality. Still one of my most favorite designs yet.
            I can see you handling skit work with ease X3
            You can do it! :3

          • JustThisOne

            @[email protected] I don’t know how you still remember that. I’m seriously flattered.

  • fireemblembeast

    So is this live-action, or do you use the pictures from Tales games’ skits to make your own in a video? Also- *clicks link* *sees Facebook* “FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUU-”
    Ok, so I do have a facebook, but all I use it for is to say thanks for the happy birthdays. I don’t like it because everyone can see everything…etc., etc.
    And there’s no way I’m making an account just for this… Well, have fun, talented people! I like this idea :)

  • ShadowDivz

    Pretty cool but.. I doubt i would win.
    And i wouldn’t even know what to write about.
    I hope lots of fans see this though.

  • Göran Isacson

    … Darnit I don’t have a face-book so I can’t see the rules. Any kind soul out there who can post them here?

    • Nitraion

      full rules

      I have facebook account…
      but wouldn’t that fair if for example you win the price will be on me…
      Maybe you can make a random account just for this contest XD

      • Göran Isacson

        Ha ha, it’s cool, I just wanted to see what the contest was all about. So you draw your own comic-skit with Tales-characters, essentially? That’s a pretty cool idea.
