There is a possibility previous Tales series characters are returning, as well.
Oh no... whenever they mix Tales characters together it usually ends up releasing in Japan only.

It's for phones anyway. Any and all interest in this title was dead the minute they made an idiotic choice. But hey we're only human, mistakes happen.

Releasing a game with 10+ console releases to a market/platform with hundreds of millions of potential customers who don't have a stick up their ass?

Yep, clearly an idiotic choice.

Yes deFFer because clearly major titles sell millions on cell phones....oh wait they don't. Gamers don't care about cell phone games, it's not a market to target. Do you think a soccer mom who plays candy crush and angry birds is going to care about a series like Tales? No of course not. Cell phones are NOT consoles and just because everyone has alone does not mean they are going to buy it. Look at the kotor iPad port. It was awful and nobody wants it because fans want he controler in their hand which cellphones/ tablets do not provide and the people who do download cellphone games (soccer moms and people most mostly hate mainstream gaming) don't not care for/ comprehend it.

Yeah completely logical to target an audience who cares nothing for video games.

This isn't new for Tales series. Years ago, Namdai already made a couple of Tales games for mobile. But that doesn't make Namdai downgrade the quality of Tales series. Just wait for TGS / Tales festival and i'm sure Namdai will announce new Tales for consoles.
