Get your first look at the new mothership Tales title for PS3.
BRING IT TO THE AMERICAS/EU REGIONS
doubtful; i remember them saying it wouldn't sell well here; which is stupid because so manyy would buy it. WTH are they thinking?
Namco are haters I guess. And haters shall hate. Wish they would think about bringing them over here. Or at least get some other company to translate them.
This game will sell in the States, but they don't even try... They need to take a page from Activision, if Tales of Vesparia outsold the recent Tony Hawk game. Why is Activision releasing another Tony Hawk game here and Namco wouldn't bring Tales to the States?
@ FarEastOrient the thing is, from my understanding. Localizing cost money. They have to do all the translation and ect.. I mean it might seem like an easy thing to do, but in reality we don't know that. I really hope that some other company will take it and localize it, but with Namco being strict and all i just don't see that happening. They want to westernize, but why can't they take a hint, no one (not many) wants their games. Look at Splatter house, low a$$ reviews and prob poor sales, Majin and the forsaken king, idk decent reviews, but how are sales? And how long will DBZ keep going? Use your dam resource for other things instead of having an yearly DBZ that literally adds nothing new. I mean come on can't they make for once a good DBZ game? The last good one for me was PS2, I say if your gonna continue DBZ hand it over to Cyber Connect they did wonders for Naruto, other wise stop making them.
@Nitrowolf2 I have to agree with you on your comment, but my thing is they already spent the money on these projects. No More Heroes on PS3 already has an English track, Tales of Vesperia also has English already done but not releasing in the States. Unfortunately I don't want to see these properties go away like Working Design that took forever to bring it stateside and to the point that many are no longer bothered by the titles. In Japan there are games that have sold extremely well but for some odd reason they move their properties around to generate a market that wasn't there. For example moving Monster Hunter to DS and not Playstation have hurt the sales. Square Enix is not far behind when they are taking forever to create their games they've announced only to have the West beat them when it does finally released. I currently have Tales of Grace F on the way home and of course it's Japanese and complete probably by Feb due to all the Western games coming out in Jan.
Fuck off and stop posting these articles for titles that aren't confirmed for the US. If it's not coming out in US/UK then nobody gives a damn.
dude stfu, i for one care.
Headquarters11, worst case scenario is importing since the PS3 is region-free. I really don't wanna miss this game and I for one am glad that this was posted on N4G. Please remember that you do not speak for everyone on this site.
F yeah! I too hope they bring it stateside!
Do want. I'm really liking the character designs. Namco, I have money and I know you like money. Perhaps we can work something out?
well... well... well... Localize this Namco.
Come on!! I would buy this. Instantly.
bring it to america and I'll sell my xbox and get a PS3.
They most bring this over to NA. They have no reason to continue complaining about how it won't do well outside of Japan. Look at Yakuza 3, sure it didn't drop bombs but its doing well enough to bring Yakuza 4 over. Seriously if they want to save money, don't do english voice acting and just do translation like Yakuza. Seriously Namco could learn a lot from Sega and Atlus.
atlus wants to bring tales of grace f to the states.don't know why namco are so reluctant. i'm not getting my hopes up, this gen has been a fail for jrpgs in the states. my be they will get their heads out of their asses and realize they have fans, on the other side of the pond.
What is sad is that Atlus is smaller than Namco, but Atlus is having a far greater success in sales in the West than they do in Japan.
Seriously, just going off of Demons Souls' track record should give them an idea of much RPG enthusiasts truly want more titles of that style over here, and that localizing wouldn't end up being a money-sink. Demons Souls netted them a mass amount more than what was projected even on the high end. Even if they only provided subtitles instead of full English dubbings, I think this would be a very successful move for them. Tales of Graces F, Tales of Vesperia, and Tales of Xillia all deserve to be localized and would give the PS3 an even more solid RPG base. Although it's a very slim chance, maybe they'll do a "Tales of" collection with Graces and Vesperia together, prior to a localization of Xillia. I just can't fathom them throwing away the dub and all the other work that's assumingly been done during the dubbing for the PS3 version of ToV.
I want RPGs in the UNITED STATES start sending these over
I wish they just code english subtitles and i just get all the imports on day 1
I hope They give us the japanese dub! I prefer the original dub over the translated one! Please bring this one over here namco!
it wont ship -_- namco just hates us -_- they have even had offers from other companies and still they dont reply to them
I hope this comes to other regions! I would buy this the second it came out!
Gosh, those might be some of the most hideous character designs in recent memory. Oh, well, still hoping this comes to the West in some form.
Now is the time to come get some money from us on the western side of planet. We are starved of Jrpgs and I'm stuck with So4.....FF13 was disappointing, give us tales now!
Ugh, SO4 is a punishment to play. Get Atelier Rorona instead.
I'm not excited for this game because I know I won't be able to play this in english anyway.
I know you guys over there hate money, Namco, but could you come through for us this time?
