Worldwide announcement!


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 is that the RPG will return to its series roots with a fantasy setting. Makoto Yoshizumi, chief producer, says that "this title will be going back to the roots of the series."

All four series designers are on-board for character design: Mutsumi Inomata, Kosuke Fujishima, Daigo Okumura, and Minoru Iwamoto. Cutscenes and openings will be handled by ufotable.

"Over the past few years the Tales Of team has taken great strides to strengthen our relationship with players across North America and Europe," said Tales producer Hideo Baba. "To respond to their love and support I am honored to open a new chapter of the Tales Of series together with Japanese and overseas fans."

YES. More RPGs. More Tales.

Y2K is a surrealist fantasy told through the lens of a Murakami-loving hipster

Y2K began with protagonist Alex Eggleston returning to his his hometown from college. I watched him gaze out of bus windows until the scene shifted to him sharing a seat with a man in a panda costume. This was jarring enough to give Alex reason to look completely shaken and offended, and as the jaunty soundtrack suggested, should have felt super quirky and weird. It didn't.more
