I’ve been hooked on this series ever since Tales of Xillia

Dunno if you've played Vesperia or Symphonia, but those are both fantastic RPGs in the Tales series as well.

I’ve played every Tales game released on an HD PlayStation console

i dont know how i feel about that. cause ni no kuni 2 kinda suffered cause of that.

Calm down Monster Hunter: World was made with more western sensibilities during development and is all the better for it. Just because a Japanese dev tries to appeal to the West doesn’t meant the game is always doomed

Kane2226d ago (Edited 26d ago )

monster hunter didn't change its gameplay either. ni no kuni 2 literally changed everything from part 1 to please people who hated the "child like story" and hated the turned based combat. which was one of the best things about ni no kuni. but part 2 changed it into another generic average game, and the story a little "darker" which didn't turn out right...

Monster Hunter World didn't change its core gameplay mechanics though. It was improved better quality of life features and smoother controls

@ Kane

Tales of Arise isn’t changing its gameplay either. It’s an evolution of the series the same way MH: W was, so your concern is still unwarranted

@ pietro

The same holds true for Tales of Arise so what’s your point?

I rathered see more Japanese leaning development then a western one but hey my opinion

Aclancy8327d ago

We love your games and one of the reasons is because it's not influenced by western culture. Don't make that mistake and keep it deeply Japanese.

TOV is the only Tales game I liked but this does look really fun. Getting it on PS4.
