Tales


Are you a Tales fan? Well you're in luck, as a strategy-centric 3DS iteration has been announced, titled Tales of the World: Reve Unitia. The only real details we have so far is that it will include a number of popu...


The Tales series often doesn't get the same recognition as big-name JRPGs like Final Fantasy, and that's a shame. It's a consistently quality franchise that has been delivering year after year, but one of the problems wi...


Guys, there's a new Tales game! But it's for Android and iOS! It's called Tales of Asteria, and apparently it'll be a "who's who" of the Tales series. Specifically, it'll include six heroes of old -- Lloyd Irv...


Namco Bandai is doing its best Square Enix impression today, as the publisher has released a free-to-play version of beloved role-playing game Tales of Phantasia on iOS devices in North America. The classic title fi...

Namco Bandai has announced that Tales of Zestiria, the latest Tales series game, will be coming to North and South America for the PS3. This is a worldwide announcement -- a first for the series. How nice! All we know so far ...


The next Tales game could be unveiled any minute now. Or maybe in a month or so. Who knows?! Anyway, a teaser site for the next entry in Namco Bandai's acclaimed role-playing game franchise has manifest on the Inter...


Namco Bandai simply doesn't have the staff to bring every Tales game to Western markets. The publisher prioritizes "flagship titles" like Tales of Xillia when determining what to localize, series producer Hideo Baba told Sili...


Tales of Symphonia Chronicles has set a course to land in North America on February 25, 2014. The PlayStation 3-exclusive HD collection will arrive just a few days later in Europe and Australasia, launching on February 2...


What happens when Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, and Tales producers Yosuke Saito, Shinji Hashimoto, and Hideo Baba share space in Japanese monthly V Jump? JRPG nerds fangasm off into the sunset. A snippet of possible collabora...


I like the Tales series of RPGs, and I think that Namco Bandai's iOS story collection app (so far, Japan-only), Tales of Bibliotheca, is a nice idea. But this new trailer looks like such a drag at first -- fair warning. You ...


I've only played one Tales game, and it was Tales of Symphonia for the GameCube. It seemed to have just what I wanted, engaging combat and likeable characters in an appropriately insane JRPG plot. Though really, I d...


A farm fresh Tales of Xillia 2 trailer emerged from the woodwork today. And it's nothing if not intense. The new video intertwines anime cinematics with in-game footage to set the stage for what looks to be yet another ...


I don't want to break your Tales of Hearts, Tales fans, but I guess it builds character. Tales of Hearts was a DS game that never got localized. It's supposed to be quite good. Namco polished the game, added a new character, ...


Tales of Phantasia has garnered a pretty sizable following since its debut on the Japanese App Store last week. In its first five days on the market, the classic role-playing game managed to generate upwards of 150,000 downlo...


Here's a nice, long trailer for Tales of Symphonia Chronicles, the upcoming PS3 game, set to launch next year in both North America and Europe. It's in Japanese with subtitles, and contains a lot of hugging, yelling, and swo...


If it seems like Tales of Xillia just came out, well, it kind of did. The outstanding JRPG only launched a few short weeks ago, but that isn't stopping Namco Bandai from promoting the impending sequel. The publisher has star...


Some things never really change. Sharks, for example, have existed for millions of years. These creatures have witnessed the birth and extinction of countless species. They endure as time ceaselessly marches forward. A consta...


While I haven't spent nearly as much time with Tales of Xillia as I've wanted (I'll blame the phenomenal Dragon's Crown and my newfound obsession with Saltybet) I'm still nonetheless impressed with the latest installmen...


I learned to type very young. At the school I went to in Tokyo they started you early, so I was typing at full speed at age 6. No joke. Uphill both ways in the snow and all of that. And now you damned kids have snapchats and ...


The time has come. At long last, Tales of Xillia is set to hit shelves this week. The arduous wait is almost finally over. Just a few more days are all that separates us from the highly anticipated role-playing game. In the meantime, Namco Bandai has cast forth yet another trailer to tantalize the masses as the hours slowly wind down to zero.


Tales of Xillia 2 is heading West, series producer Hideo Baba revealed today at the Japan Expo in Paris, France. According to reports out of the convention, Namco Bandai plans to bring the role-playing game to North America a...

Have you played Tales of Symphonia? If you haven't, know it's a face-punchingly fantastic game, with amazing music to match. If you missed it, or even if you played it and loved it, you'll be glad to know that at today's Tal...


Namco Bandai saw that we all went nuts for the Tales of Xillia Collector's Edition, so they're announcing a Limited Edition for North America. I hope that makes sense to you.  There's no Milla figure in this Limited Edit...


Tales of Symphonia is reportedly receiving a high-definition re-release on PlayStation 3. Speaking with Koi-Nya, series producer Hideo Baba teased what he is calling "a representation of the dreams and hopes of the fans,...


During Namco Bandai Games' Manhattan press conference last week, where they showed off the likes of Armored Core: Verdict Day and Dark Souls II, I had the chance to sit at a round-table with Tales series producer Hideo Baba. ...


Tales of Xillia, Namco's anticipated entry in the Tales Of RPG series, will arrive on PlayStation 3 on August 6. After setting a high bar with its Ni no Kuni limited edition, Namco is once again not slouching: Tales of Xilli...


"This year, the industry has had a lot of changes," Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing and Digital Sales at Namco Bandai Games America said at the company's Gamer's Day press conference last week. "The way the consumer...

Namco Bandai has released a pair of new videos showcasing the combat in Tales of Xillia. As noted last week, the localized footage gives us one of our first opportunities to listen to the English voice acting. It's most...


Voice acting always seems like a contentious issue with Japanese role-playing games. Delivery is frequently stiff or obnoxious, oftentimes taking away from the experience rather than adding to it. From the sound of it though...


Most criticism leveled at the Japanese game industry over the past few years is typically in regards to its increasingly insular focus -- making games that are "too Japanese-y" and thus have more difficulty than ever before a...


At the advent of Namco Bandai’s press event last week, we were treated to a cozy little presentation, the highlight of which was Tales of Xillia producer Hideo Baba talking a bit about the new game, through a translator...


Namco Bandai quietly announced today that their Tales of role-playing series of games has now shipped 15 million copies worldwide. It all started back in December of 1995, and is now at PS3 game Tales of Xillia 2, which just ...


Even though it will probably never be localized, I still felt I should tell you that Nintendo DS game Tales of Hearts is coming to the Vita as Tales of Hearts R. According to Siliconera, this was just announced in the latest ...


Namco Bandai passed along some new screenshots of upcoming PS3 role-playing game Tales of Xillia that are super pretty. They're all anime-y and colorful and sparkle-y, just how I like my RPGs. You know the kind: huge eyes, wi...


We may not have a Tales of Xilllia preview up on the site yet, but here’s a sequel. Sure. I mean, why not? I haven’t played many Tales games, but I loved Tales of Destiny and Tales of Symphonia. The games might ...


To say the Tales series is a pretty big franchise would probably be seen as a gross understatement. Since its creation in 1994, the series has sold over 14 million copies despite many of the games not getting released ou...


Namco Bandai's Japan Expo is going on now, streaming live. Those following would have noticed that the company will bring the next big Tales game to the west. As in Europe, as Japan Expo takes place in Paris. BUT! The series'...
