Famitsu shared concept art for the Next Tales of project, which will be unveiled on June 2nd during the Tales Festival. Series producer Hideo Baba said the upcoming Tales game is a mothership title and will have a more modern style.
He wasn’t kidding. The Next Tales of title has giant cities and futuristic trains. The visual design almost feels like Final Fantasy or Lost Odyssey instead of a traditional anime inspired Tales game. Baba says the Next Tales of game will still play like other games in the series.
"Are you prepared to destroy the world for the sake of a girl," Baba says is a key phrase for the game’s story and gameplay systems.
