Meanwhile, you can read up on how Lloyd and Asbel end up finding themselves in the dream world, and also catch up on the game’s story.

    Now we just need to work on a localization.

  • Nan

    too bad this will never get localized

    • BizarreJelly

      If a Vita Tales of game can get localized, then anything is possible.

  • AlphaSixNine

    Not the platform I hoped it would be on but oh well…
    Hoping it gets localized too.
    More Tales is always welcome as long as it’s not on smartphones lol.

  • Keiji Johnson

    Everytime I look at the title, it always makes me wonder why Radiant Mythology 2 and 3 were not localized in the west… :(

    • Radiant Mythology 1 was my first Tales game, and learning that the sequels weren’t localized delayed me from ever touching a Tales game again til the 3DS release of Abyss.

      Now that I think of it, RM wasn’t all that good as I remember (personally, it’s crap), so I don’t mind not getting localized sequels. They’re more or less all about Kanonno anyway, and I can’t stand it when RPGs pull the “Create a Character who pretty much watches the ACTUAL main character and the story develop from the sidelines” that the Phantasy Star Portable games do.

      • kaotron

        From what I remember playing the first RM is that there wasn’t that much customization options for the created characters either so they were super bland, expressionless and lifeless.

        I usually like it when games give you the option to create a character but I agree, most of the time they are just silent and only there to watch what’s going on.

        • Yeah, I agree with all that. Character creation defeats its own purpose if it isn’t done right.

          I never beat RM anyway for those reasons I mentioned before, but it was also because of what you said for lack of expression, and the world and its maps were bland as well.

          The only thing I can remember really enjoying was the somewhat playable cameo characters from previous Tales games, and even then that’s only enjoyable to me in retrospect since I’ve played more Tales games to understand those characters.

          • kaotron

            Yeah, I never really beat it either, I tried to like it but everything about it was super repetitive and the whole quest thing/unlocking jobs was so tedious to the point where it felt more like a chore than a game.

            whenever I play a game I do my best to try and enjoy it(otherwise it’s just a waste of time playing) even if it’s one of those games that are “cool to hate” like symphonia2. Dotnw had a ton of flaws but I still found it bearable and a litte fun for a spinoff wii game.

          • Damn, you hit the nail on the head first paragraph. It totally felt like a chore when I wanted to unlock higher classes.

      • CureMarine

        RM 1 was pretty mediocre but 3 was a pretty damn solid game through and through. Not perfect by any means, but way better then the first 2.

    • Ladius

      I fear that had a lot to do with Radiant Mythology apparently being the worst selling Tales game in the US, according to leaked NPD data. RM also had a rather poor critical reception compared to the rest of the series (66 Metacritic compared to the average 75-79 range of most localized Tales games, even if those are mostly mothership entries) and personally I thought it had many flaws, even if apparently Alfa System fixed them in the sequels. The RM games were also a localization challenge because of the sheer number of characters involved, not to mention some of them came from games that were never translated and were unknown to most western fans.

    • 永次

      RM2 and RM3 are simply awesome.

  • bubblinz

    i really like the male cast, but the females..
    natalia is an ok but the rest kinda.. not really appealing for me.
    lets just say i need some mature women like grune(legendia) or ange (innocence)..

  • TempestTwin

    I still am not losing hope for this to be localized, considering that Hideo Baba’s relationship with the west is much stronger now back to when Radiant Mythology 2 and 3 were released.

    • bigstew

      well even though he has been talking a lot lately, I find it hard to believe that now he says their is a strong want for tales in the west, it always been like that and most of this was because of declining sales in japan and business wise, saying what he did turned it into a positive for stock holders who were getting on him to stop being anti west with the markets here bigger and what not.

      • TempestTwin

        Although that is true back in the day I don’t believe he even bothered to look at the west or even take us into consideration. He didn’t realize how big the tales of community is in the west and how much the series is appreciated, which now that has changed considering he always goes to tales of conventions in Europe.

    • kaotron

      Tales games are already a pretty niche series, and RM(a crossover game full of characters unfamiliar to many people since they probably didn’t play the previous games and the ones that weren’t localized) apparently bombed in sales(and gameplay).

      Maybe it’s just because I’ve never been a big fan of these kind of cross-over games in general so even as a tales fan I found RM, twin brave and talesVS just as boring(and this is coming from someone who found Dotnw bearable).

      • TempestTwin

        The way I look at it is I’d rather these cross over games being a proper full fledged game being developed over some mobile smartphone app that will never make its way to english. I personally don’t find these games boring because I can pretty much relate to most of the characters and it is nice to see them all come together at one point instead of just belonging to their stand alone games.

  • Lissomia

    Time to REVE up my engines (heh)

  • Anesia Hunter

    i still get the bad feeling that the graphics quality is going to be the same as the tales of the abyss port…

  • Yara yara yara localization please yara yara

  • Sergio Macellaro

    I hope for a wester version.

  • 하세요

    Mixed feelings on whether or not to import. I may wait it out a month or two post-release.

  • CozyAndWarm

    Please localize, etc, you know the drill Namco. (still waiting on Digimon 3DS too)

  • WiicardoBA

    *heavy breathing..*

  • Michael Connell

    Well considering we got Project X Zone I’ll keep my fingers crossed for this one

    • 하세요

      Eh, PxZ did pretty bad in all regions. I wouldn’t exactly use that as the best excuse, because that bombed.

  • isotrex

    Holy mother of awesome! 3DS library gets better and better.

  • Roger

    I wonder if they’ll make/release an original main series Tales for 3DS. SRPG spin-off doesn’t excite me too much. The port of Abyss was nice, though.

  • Ben Green

    looking at sales of recent Tales games, they actually sell just as good, if not even better, in the west than they do in Japan. would be stupid not to localize this, even tho the interest i have in Tales games is a negative figure

  • keithmaxx

    I hope we get massive Inventory so I can get some from the bargain bin not long after release…
