Um. Wow. That sucks. I own every Tales game that every made it to North America or Europe.

I hope Graces F and Xillia still make it?

"this move is likely aimed at bringing the subsidiary under the full wing of Namco Bandai and the company will still develop Tales games"

Since this article isn't about the American branch of the company I can't see how Graces F would be affected.

This is about the Japanese developer ABSORBING the Tales devs into the main branch of Bamco. Nothing is really changing as far as gamers are concerned.

Not really all that big a deal. They will still be making tales games it's not like this means they are ditching the series. It's kinda like how ATLUS was absorbed by their parent company it just makes the behind the scenes business stuff more efficient but the games won't be effected at all.

Pretty much was my thoughts. I was thinking that first thing when I saw the press release.

Thank you for explaining that. Was going to do it in a different post, but you basically used the same example I was going to.

Though I dunno if it's going to stop people questioning if they're going to continue making Tales games.

eewwww...don't dissolve with Namco lol.

Tales games have always been successful in Japan so I'm surprised this wasn't done sooner.

I'm hoping Tales Of The Heroes makes its way here

This is like when Visceral Australia was closed down, people thought they closed the Redwood Visceral because they didn't even bother to actually read the article.
