By way of Japanese blog Gemaga
comes the news from Namco
that four new games in the Tales
series are headed to Japan. First off, prepare for the subways and buses of Tokyo to soon be filled with the sounds of a new original title for the DS, Tales of Innocence
, due in Japan this winter. PS2 owners will get a title based on Tales of Destiny
and Wii owners will waggle through a game based on Tales of Symphonia.
We're assuming these will be sequels or at least significantly different, as ToD
was released for PS2 already in 2006 and ToS
is available on GameCube.
Japaese PSPs will be getting a port of Tales of Rebirth
, released for the PS2 in Japan in 2004. The newly wide-screen game is set to release in early 2008. We have no idea if you'll ever play any of these outside of Japan, but Tales
games have been fairly consistent about coming to North America, so we'll keep our fingers crossed.
