Interview: Tales producer Hideo Baba on Tales of Xillia, more

Gematsu: "At Comic-Con in New York, we spoke to Tales series producer Hideo Baba about the upcoming English localization for Tales of Xillia, Tales of Xillia 2, the Tales series in general, Baba-san’s thoughts on the western market, and other subjects."

The story is too old to be commented.

Baba: The graphics in western games are very photo-realistic, such as Uncharted, Assassin’s Creed, Skyrim. Capcom had Dragon’s Dogma, which is an RPG and performed well in the western countries, as well. But I like these characteristics in western games. I don’t implement these features in the Tales series. But I do enjoy these features in the western games.

Square enix, and many other RPG company's can learn a lot about this note

I now have even more high respect for Mr. Baba-san after reading his comments. He knows that his product, the Tales series, is his baby, and that growing it does not mean alienating the fans with mechanics that don't meld well with the base identity of the series.

Thing is, ToX incorporates more realistic physical proportions for the characters, as opposed to the previous titles' cartoonish character renders. This is a good addition; however, Baba-san knows his limits and that over-reaching for all audiences by incorporating 'western' touches will not work for his craft.

Personally, I would like Baba-san work on that open-world game he is dreaming of creating provided sales and finance restraints are non-existent. Imagine an RPG, open-world game that's Japanese made! The closest thing to this is Dark Souls. Japan, we want more!!! We know you can do it!!!
