Teaser Site Has Hints About The Next Tales Of Title

By Spencer . December 6, 2013 . 12:58am

imageNamco Bandai posted a few more hints about the next main game in the Tales series. A book with the Legend of the Priest says long ago during the era of myths when the world was covered in darkness, someone appeared and restored the light.


When times changes, whenever the world falls into disorder people talked about the legend and hoped for salvation.

    Well this is not only vague, but can really be anything (sounds really cliche)

    • But you know that Tales of likes accumulating those cliches and then deconstruct them.

      • Having played nearly every Tales, I’d have to say not every title does that and in fact quite a big portion of the series plays cliches straight or deconstructs them poorly.
        I mean in general Tales plots are “ok” from my experience, with certain titles DEFINITELY standing out in execution and writing, but it’s obviously a series focusing more on interaction, everyday dialogue and three dimensional characters than a strong, deconstructed, meaningful plot.
        Well, just my two cents.

    • Pockystix

      it’s one of the few franchises that can liberally use cliches and tropes well

      • Kevin Schwarz

        I wouldn’t say “well” sure they add comedy and stuff, BUT the plot is as crappy as any other generic anime-ish JRPG’s plot… Sadly, that stops the tales of, games to be excellent, because their superb gameplay mechanics are another thing.

    • Samsara09

      the more cllches the game has,the better…for tales of usually toys around with cliches…deconstructing them…usually giving us food to thought.

  • Masa

    oh, hope the two xillia titles sell well enough in the West so we get the next tales game too. :)

  • Unlimax

    I consider this MMO as the next gen Tales of game .. i call it Tales of Peria :3

    Sheesh these disagrees .. Cant’ we have an open minded people for a moment in this planet ლ(ಠ益ಠლ)

    Note : this is an Alpha footage not the Full game , the game isn’t out yet in Korea , Official Website

    • Hououin91

      It uses the vesperia art style (Which I prefer), amazing looking mmo.

    • DyLaN

      Salty downvotes, what can you do.

      Cel shading looks nice for an MMO and nice creature (?) design. Interested.

    • English European release when?

    • IshimaruKaito

      honestly i would play it, buy any expansion that comes with it, and buy any accessories that come out for it, it looks that good!

    • brian

      Dat pantsu.

    • CirnoLakes

      I remember mentioning that game several months back and how it looked similar to Tales.

      I found it on Steparu.

  • Notquitesure?

    Wasn’t there something similar with kresnik?

  • Tales of Literature-ria?

  • tales of saints XD

  • Daigure

    I know it’s a little early to say, but I hope the next game takes place in a world like Aeselia. While Abyss is my personal favorite in the series, I like the aesthetics of the World Phantasia and Symphonia take place in.

    For those wondering, I think the term “salvation” triggered this comment.

  • Lambo_21

    just get it localized faster than Xillia (or name most Tales games) and I will be happy!

  • Fango

    Sounds like a very clichéd jrpg plot lol

    • LightZero

      Thus it’s a Tales game

  • Lloyd Christmas

    I hope the protagonist this time around isn’t some unlikable wimp. God I hate Asbel.

    • HerosLight

      You mean Emil and Luca.

    • Alexander Marquis Starkey

      Asbel isn’t a wimp. You mean Emil…and that’s his character art.

  • fireemblembeast

    Lol, there’s been a third hint for hours now…why is Siliconera always so slow with this type of thing?

  • Freud_Hater

    That sounds monstrously cliché…

    Hope it’s just a feeling D:

    • Wolfs_Rain

      Tales? Cliché? N’aaaaaaaaaw.

  • Kevin Schwarz

    Isn’t that the plot of FFI? Heck, it could be anything…
