Namco Bandai begins teasing next Tales project


Prepare to foam at the mouth

The next Tales game could be unveiled any minute now. Or maybe in a month or so. Who knows?! Anyway, ateaser sitefor the next entry in Namco Bandai’s acclaimed role-playing game franchise has manifest on the Internet, indicating an announcement is looming just around the corner.

The webpage isn’t terribly interesting at the moment, merely displaying images and video of a pair of the older titles in the series,Tales of PhantasiaandTales of Destiny. Perhaps Hideo Baba and company intend to slowly walk us through the series’ rich history before unveiling its upcoming project. That could take a while.

Some surmise the game will be called“Tales of Zestiria,” as that title appeared in US and European trademark registries back in September. Of course, trademarks go unused all the time, so take that for what you will.

Tales of Xillia 2 and Tales of Symphonia Chronicles are slated to hit North America and Europe next year. Until then, you can always enjoy the excellent Tales of Xillia, which landed on western shores earlier this year. Or just feverishly refresh that teaser site. Whatever floats your boat.
