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 get a good look at...dialogue screens and summaries. Woo.
That's what it's all about, though. It's stories of the Tales games, released as individual chapters. The app comes with Chapter 1 (Tales of Vesperia) for free, and the rest of them are priced at 170 yen each. The whole caboodle is priced at about $18.
It does pick up at the 0:50 second mark, I guess. There are new images and battles to keep these story summaries interesting.
As a series fan, I kind of want this. But it's probably not happening.
