Tales Characters Reunite For Tales Of Asteria

By Spencer . February 17, 2014 . 2:33am

Yeah, Namco Bandai has another Tales game in the pipeline, but Tales of Asteria is another smartphone Tales. Lloyd from Tales of Symphonia, Milla from Tales of Xillia, Luke from Tales of the Abyss, Sophie from Tales of Graces f, Cress from Tales of Phantasia and Yuri from Tales of Vesperia are at the heart of the story.

 

Tales of Asteria has a new story where these six Tales heroes are part of a that six chosen will appear when the world fights over star pieces. The game has an opening video from Attack on Titan studio Wit Studio and a new battle/quest system dubbed the Cross Slide Battle.

 

Namco Bandai will release Tales of Asteria for iPhone and Android this spring.

    I hate this smartphone trend/thing. I find them annoying to play on.

    • Ric Vazquez

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/narutops2xbox/videos Black Koshinomi

      I 2nd that !

    • DanielGearSolid

      I would hate it if it was the only tales game in the works… But since we know zesteria is coming, I say why not let Namco make a quick buck and put that money into improving console tales games

    • Kelechuckuw K.c.W

      don’t worry this is happening http://epdaily.tv/all/spotlight/whats-new-in-tales-of-symphonia-chronicles/ on the ps3 next week to make up for all the smart phone stuff..

    • Kelechuckuw K.c.W

      well you all are in for a treat next week if your a ps3 owner

    • yomachaser

      You could try : a tablet with a controller,a ds style clamp controller,or a system like the shield is the AMAZING for all kinds of games.

      There are many options to make mobile gaming more traditional and crazy fun.

    • Kelechuckuw K.c.W

      Don’t worry all of you with a ps3 will be happy when next.week we’ll have this http://epdaily.tv/all/spotlight/whats-new-in-tales-of-symphonia-chronicles/

      if this isn’t allowed sorry I just tryin to cheer these peeps up. won’t happen again

    please just don;t be another “All the Bravest” thing

    Really? *shrugs*

  • David García Abril

    Anime scenes created by Studio Wit (the guys who made “Attack on Titan”) and a touch screen combat system…

    I’d like to say I’m at least intrigued, but then I remember the “Tales of Phantasia” smartphone version debacle…

    They’ll probably region lock it just like their other mobile games, sadly. :/

    • FallenAfh

      I don’t get the whole region lock complaint everytime, there nothing stopping you (atleast on ios) from creating a Japanese account to buy from the Japanese store.

      • Seizui

        Mmm… I actually had a hair-tearing time trying to get the game from the Japanese store, myself, after research. Haven’t tried it again recently, but I vaguely recall being unable to download Tales of the World: Tactics Union, for some reason.

      • yomachaser

        Fairly sure that wipes the apps from other regions off your device so it’s a bit of a hassle.

        • FallenAfh

          I don’t know what you’re smoking then. I have apps from 3 different stores right now on this ipad

  • DyLaN

    Again, even though I’m interested in it but this will probably never see the day of light out of Japan like ToL/B……

    There always Zesty so no point getting worked up over it anyway.

  • Jesse

    Don’t you guys have enough mobile games, Namco? -_- At least Zestiria is in development for consoles.

    • Arcana Drill

      i like the way they do it, the mobile games are just a way to win money while great console titles are in development, so if i receive tales of regularly i dont care if they do 1 billion mobile titles.

      • Shippoyasha

        I just wish they put that money into making more ports for more systems (why not multiplatform especially when they seem to make a lot of money back from all their versions?) and maybe more into timely localizations.

        • Arcana Drill

          yes, faster localizations would be neat, but i’m already very happy, three-four years ago if someone said that every tales of game would be localized and that we would start to receive the confirmations of localization instantaneous he would be laughed at.

        • Slayven19

          Faster localizations are what they are trying to do now. Its just that we were already behind and they don’t want to release to many tales games together to over-saturate us

  • ivanchu77

    Nice to see Sophie there :)

    Another smartphone game… :( hopefully they port it to a console someday

  • megaten666

    I don’t know how to deal with this or how should I feel about this :/

  • Daigure

    If it plays like a normal Tales Game, I don’t really care if it’s on smartphone or not. I do care about price though.

  • gulabjamal

    OMG THEY BROKE THE FOURTH WALL!!!!! They reused the letter A…. (Abyss and Asteria)

    • Nanaki

      TotA & ToA.

      • gulabjamal

        Reuse is Reuse. They still have a good 9 letters to use

  • ZnTxn

    Considering this is called Tales of Asteria, I expected Shing to be here.

  • idrawrobots

    I would play Tales of Assteria, even if it was on mobile

  • kaotron

    Another portable cross-over tales game…what else is new?

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/BaoZakeruga BaoZakeruga

    Had me until “smartphone” .

  • Masa

    mobile rpgs summary:
    short game time
    bad stories
    microtransactions

    • DyLaN

      Personally, I find Devil Maker: Tokyo and Minion Rush to be a terrific time sink when I’m bored :V And I haven’t paid anything at all.

      And quite frankly, its just a matter of shifting the better ones out of the generic ones. Banshee’s Last Cry anyone?

    • DevilMayCry898

      Ain’t that the damn truth. :(

  • Yan Zhao

    Smartphone….

    :

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    :{

    microtransactions ugh smartphone

    • DyLaN

      You can just, I dunno don’t pay?

  • Spirit Macardi

    I’m still wishing they’d do something like Keroro RPG again and have a Tales game based off an existing series. It was a unique concept, making a licensed title with the trappings of a Tales game. Sort of like how Koei has made licensed Warriors/Musou games.

    • s07195

      There’s also the new Kamen Rider one, iirc.

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/narutops2xbox/videos Black Koshinomi

    O Great -_-

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/narutops2xbox/videos Black Koshinomi

    Does anyone know when the 2nd batch of TALES OF SYMPHONIA CHRONICLES COLLECTOR’S EDITION are coming ?

  • Kornelious

    Huh, Why Sophie and Milla instead of Asbel and Jude?

    • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

      Non ones likes the guys, the girls are far more marketable.

      • Kornelious

        Well, I quite liked Jude and……actually your right about Asbel

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    no sign of radiant mythology 4 is worrying me

  • Samsara09

    they did fill a trademark for this game.Glad to see they are using it.

    Namco going mobile is obvious,it is a growing market,a land of opportunities to make some quick cheap cash.Also,the purpose of this game is to introduce those dumbphone fellas to the series and convince them to buy the console tales games.It is that simple,and what’s better,Namco is hadly alienating us…we are gettin xillia 2,symphonia chronicles this year…and zestiria next year.

    • DevilMayCry898

      Chronicles was alright. (It still has the sequel fans played but still don’t want)

  • http://twitter.com/#!/Leafy_Cam Leafhopper

    I would be annoyed usually but I can’t anymore. Japan is moving more and more towards mobile games.

  • http://momentsreprieve.com/index/ Aushria

    More squandered potential from Namco Bandai and the Tales team…can’t say I am surprised.

    “Tales of Asteria has a new story where these six Tales heroes are part of a that six chosen will appear when the world fights over star pieces.”

    Did you accidentally a word?

    • s07195

      Ouch, the purposeful irony. >.>

  • Kelechuckuw K.c.W

    Don’t worry there’s a tales game on it’s way next week on the ps3 according to this http://epdaily.tv/all/type-of/shows/february-17-ep-daily-full-show/

  • artemisthemp

    I wish Namco Bandai would use less time making Phone game and more time ensuring EU get same content as US
