Namco Trademarks Tales of Memories And More

By Ishaan . August 22, 2013 . 6:33pm

Namco Bandai have registered more Tales trademarks in Japan, Hachima Kiko reports. The publisher has filed trademarks for: Tales of Bibliotheca, Tales of Memories and Tales of Favorite (don’t ask).


This is in addition to other recent Tales trademark filings. In recent months, Namco also filed trademarks like Tales of Link and Tales of Zestoria.


Let’s see how long Namco go without announcing a new Tales game. At the moment, the only “new” Tales title they have announced is Tales of Symphonia Chronicles.


  • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu


    I dont want to see anymore Pachinko games

    Destiny R 3DS/Vita version or bust.

    New 3DS Tales or bust.

    • Rogerrmark

      Destiny R:Director’s Cut drastically needs a port indeed.Hopefully its not another mobile SRPG or worse.

    • Lynx

      They said the focus would be on the PS3 for a while so I wouldn’t hold your breath.

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        Alpha Team needs works dammit!

  • Kevin Schwarz

    We need a new ps3/xbox360 tales game. So bored of ports and remakes…

    • HerosLight

      Did we not just get Tales of Xillia and Xillia 2 next year?

      • Kevin Schwarz

        Indeed, I must be specific. We need “new” tales games.

        • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

          No we need more ports. PORT EVERYTHING AND BANKROLL CASH NAMCO.

  • KingGunblader

    I get that they’re protecting their IP, but… Tales of Favourite? Also Tales of Bibliotheca just makes me think of this:

    • JustThisOne

      Dude, that biblioteca thing is what I’m thinking all the time. *___*

    • KyoyaHibari

      Me llamo T-Bone.

  • AoNoise

    Someone is hard at work brainstorming!

  • Jesse

    Hopefully, they will pick a new Tales game out of all of these at the Tokyo Game Show next month.

  • JustThisOne

    Hmm, these names… They sound like a Tales crossover of some kind.

  • Vesperion

    Namco is just trying to get some phony names out there to keep us guessing

  • Suriel Cruz

    Tales of Zestoria sounds way more ‘Tales of’ material, than Tales of Link or Tales of Bibliotheca. xD

  • Randy Marsh

    Lots of trademarks…..

  • Duo Maxwell

    My favorite Tales of is Tales of Favorite.

  • Pdugna

    Going to keep mentioning on these tales posts….hope that recent price cut gets vita to get bumped up so namco can release hearts and innocence here

  • DyLaN
    • Yay Dantalain! I’m not the only one I know who’s watched it now lol =^_^=

      • Luis Camargo

        Dantarian no Shoka was amazing.
        Did you watched Gosick ? Another great anime.

        • Aunna Terrell

          Both series are great! Two of my favorites in the recent years~

        • Of course I watched it lol, and it was indeed great. =)

          Dat Victorique / Victorica (The sub group I was watching it from had a vote to which they would use in the translation lol)

          *High Five*

      • DyLaN

        And I have one of the LN too :P

        It seems like the anime cut some chapters out frm the looks of it. Might have to read the rest of ’em to see wht the anime remove and wht the anime didn’t cover.

        • Yup the anime cut a lot of chapters, for example my fav chapter where there’s this chef that eats his own brain. I guess that chapter is too gory to be animated XD

          • DyLaN

            Thk God tht scene is not animated.

        • Nice, and I hope they also decide to make a second season if possible too.

      • Aunna Terrell

        ;_; I nominated Dalian in that character poll thing in OT. But she lost to the main character of Read or Die.

    • Aunna Terrell

      lol samething that popped in mind when I read that. XDDD

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        Tales of Wikipedia

  • RichyGaming

    I still think they should go with Tales of Penguins, dood.

    • DyLaN

      *Imagine Penguin MC yelling his lung out*
      ^_^; Would be an interesting ride I guess? XD

      • RichyGaming

        lol After playing Prinny: Can I Really be the Hero, I couldn’t stop thinking of an RPG penguin game. I mean, it could even be a human at first, then transforming into a penguin to receive a special power and knowledge. Then he goes all matrix and Black Rock Shooter Style with twin swords in UFOTABLE animation, FUCK!

    • Rogerrmark

      The brave and easygoing protagonist prinny.
      The timid yet strong female prinny that likes the protagonist.
      The protagonist’s childhood friend yet rival of the protagonist.
      The lone wolf,badass prinny with a heart of gold that the group meets along the adventure and carries a giant sword.
      The crazy and genius female teen prinny,annoying to the core.
      The hot and well-endowed female prinny that seduces everybody.

      Plus Linear Motion Battles,skits and Mystic Artes.

      Oh God,kickstart it now.

      • Highasthesky

        The finale boss: ETNA!!

      • Notquitesure?

        DOOODDD! we need this so much i can only survive on sardines for so long.

      • RichyGaming

        Whoa, that’s a lot of females dood! And it’d be cool if the badass prinny had similar looks to Leon

  • SoundMatch

    LOL I bet it has something to do with the Tales Competition we had.

    Namco: *Sees Siliconera, OMG SAVE ALL THE TALES OF!

    • SoundMatch

      Dunno if its just me but I wanna see them trademark “Tales of Tales”

      • Rogerrmark

        This will be the final,”zero”,omega game of the franchise :P

  • Tales Of Trademarks =^_^=

  • Presea

    When I first saw Tales of Bibilotecha, it sounds like Tales of Library. It’s like, save books and libraries everywhere from the evil oppression of the anti-text organization! Spread literature everywhere and increase literacy rates in all cities across the world! Or something like that.

    • DyLaN

      Sounds like something NIS/CH would do XD

      • Presea

        When you mention it, that sounds like something they would do. :D If CH handled it, it would be filled with a bunch of moe girls (and maybe dudes) while in NIS it would be a bunch of angels trying to promote education (or I guess delinquency?) in the Netherworld.

  • nirvana123

    Are they developing two games at once ( ps3 and a 3ds or vita game) as these are alot of trademarks

    • Arcana Wiz

      probably, and we cant forget about mobile and social games too.

  • Luis Camargo

    Time to make salty bets:

    -When they will announce it ?
    -Name of the next Tales of ?
    -Platform ?
    -Most used anime cliche?

    I’m betting they will announce at TGS, name Zestoria, PS3 and a main character with a dark past that no one cares.

    • JustThisOne

      TGS, Catastora, PS3 and the best friend character is a jerk with a heart of gold.

      *shrug* Spitballin’ here.

      • Zero_Destiny

        A Heart of Gold or is he secretly in love with the male protagonist and doesn’t wanna admit it?

        • JustThisOne

          Wait… Did we just describe Tales of Graces?

          • Zero_Destiny

            I dunno ……..
            I might of ……..

  • Nightmare637

    Still patiently awaiting Tales of Gels.

    • Ferrick

      and i’m still waiting for tales of peach pie, tales of STELLLAAAAAAAA, and tales of CLAIREEEEEEEEEE

  • IxisNaugus

    I didn’t think much of the earlier reported trademarks, but these in particular make me feel as though Namco are considering (or making) a Tales compilation of sorts. Perhaps including enhanced ports of the PS2 games? I recall there were at least three or four of them, not including the Symphonia port.

  • TeddyAltman

    Tales of Bibliotheca made me fuckin lol. It’s like they’re securing IPs for the next 1000 Tales games. They’re set all the way up until the end of the universe.

    • Arcana Wiz

      nah this is normal, they always make three four names per game.

  • ocaritna

    Tales of Link probably for mobile phone title i guess, you can “Link” your account with the others so you can get stronger ! *random thoughts*

    • makubexnas

      shiiiii! don’t give them the idea.

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Sounds like Persona 5.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I hope for a wii-u/3DS game

  • FlyingSteamroller

    That’s a lot of tales.. and Tales of Favorite? Wud?

  • I woder when they will trademark Tales of Tales lol

    • J_Joestar

      maybe Tales of Tails?

  • raitouniverse

    I’m starting to think that they’re just screwing with us now.

  • brian

    Memories, because they still need a game with every playable character being amnesiacs and trying to find their titular memories.
    I think bibliotheca would translate to Tales of Library.

  • Audie Bakerson

    Namco has done this before right?

    Watch them use something from one of those groups as the actual name.

    • Zero_Destiny

      They usually trademark Tales names in bulk, yeah.

  • Ryo-kun

    I’d rather have Xillia 3 thx

  • Guest

    Glad to hear they are planning to stick around for a while.

  • benhanks040888

    The names keep getting xillia (sorry for the pun). Namco, how about “Tales of Tales” with Inception-esque story?

  • Arcana Wiz

    well this isn’t to impressive if we think about it in a way, generally three trademaks per game, so they are making about three-four games, probably a social game, a spin off title(radiant mythology or nakari dungeon, etc) and the next mothersihp title and last a mobile game, the normal of tales series per year

  • fairysun

    Hurry, someone trademark Tales of Tales!

  • Guest

    Tales of Memes

  • Celiacus

    I would love to see a Tales game where you play as the summon spirits, called Tales of Spirits. A prequel game for Tales of Symphonia where you play as Kratos, Mithos, Yuan and Martel would be amazing too.
    A man can dream…

  • CirnoLakes

    That’s not too bad. It definitely sounds better than “Tales of Jin”.

  • artemisthemp

    Tales of Memories is a Anime to my knowledge

    • School Idol Addict

      I think you’re talking about ef: A Tales of Memories.
      Other then that i don’t think there’s any anime named Tales of Memories.
