The newly announced Xillia is a no show?
Wow Namco... unexpected...

That said, I think you guys need to get some localisation done... heck, just translating the text would be good enough for now. I'm sure Namco will be surprised at the decent reception it would receive, much like SEGA and Yakuza 3.

They need to bring them to America and to the PS3 and to stop complaining about sales. You bring the tales games over and put them on a console that people use for RPG's and you will have your sales. I think Final Fantasy 13 sales should of been enough for them to want to bring these games over.


Did Tales of Xillia Write a Smarter Thanos?

There's a surprising amount of overlap between Marvel's Mad Titan and a lesser-known Tales villains -- but which is the better baddie?

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

I hope they remaster or port a lot of the older games of the series to PS4/PS5

“Tales series is considered one of the top three Japanese RPG series next to RPG giants like Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy.”

How you gonna talk about the top three JRPG franchises and not mention Pokémon, the top selling series in the genre?

This is how the top JRPG series stack up

1. Pokémon - 340M
2. Final Fantasy - 144M
3. Dragon Quest - 78M
4. Monster Hunter - 52M
5. Kingdom Hearts - 30M
6. Souls - 25M

This was actually my first Tales game. Took me forever to complete it, as I stopped mid-way through for a long time. I eventually came back, and beat it. It really lingered in my thoughts afterwards, to the point where I just knew I had to play the other games in the series. I've been a huge fan of the series ever since. I'm really pumped for Arise, seems to be just what the Tales games needed as a refresher.

I recommend playing vesperia definitive if you havent already. The last amazing tales game. Post-vesperia were just very mediocre. Really hope arise is a great game and a return to how great tales used to be, they did mention it would have "classic" gameplay and I hope they mean pre-graces. Also that baba is no longer there and now has the god eater guy there which is a series that has great story telling and gameplay so Im excited to see how this game will turn out and have higher hopes.

I actually really liked Xillia. The sequel and Berseria didn't do much for me though. Just felt like treading the same waters again. Which is why the new Arise engine (Unreal 4) should do wonders to help breathe new life into the series as a whole.

I haven't played Vesperia yet, I always wanted to do so after playing the demo on my Xbox 360 years ago. I just never got around to it. I've seen the Remastered version on sale, but I just don't have the time to devote to it right now. I'll definitely get around to it though. (Still trying to work my way through Persona 5 at the moment, lol.)

I think the only one I really didn't enjoy was Zesteria. My fav overall was Graces f. I loved the story. I like the personal story in it alot. Made me forget I was playing a game at times and the whole thing where you start as kids and then it goes into the future with a time skip. I was in complete shock because I thought I'd be using kids the whole game thinking because it was a Wii game initially, it went with the Symphonia style lol

I absolutely LOVE the battle system. the whole reward system in it made it soooooooo good compared to alot during those times. I think the only system I kinda enjoy more. but only in some aspects is Hearts R. The moment the ability triggers and you start going crazy and if you can time the parries perfectly. OMG it's amazing. But overall Graces has had my favourite battle system otherwise.

I really enjoyed the cast of this game. It caught me by surprise how good it was. I played it first because I was on a Tales of binge(I still am) and got hooked but that final boss was a long hard battle

Juusterey1709d ago
