Namco’s listening: tell them you want Tales!
posted on 01.10.11 at 03:01 PM EDT by (@salromano)

After months of fans spamming Namco Bandai’s Facebook page with requests for new Tales games in the western hemisphere, Namco Bandai community manager Rich Bantegui has stepped up and said he’s “taking notes“.

He wrote on Facebook: “Hey guys! I’m Richard Bantegui, aka “FilthieRich,” the Community Manager for Namco Bandai Games. If you’ve got any thoughts, requests or suggestions about any of our games such as Tekken, SoulCalibur, PAC-MAN and yes, even Tales, let’s chat!”

I’ve told him what I want. Now tell them what you want (we’re hoping you want Tales, yes?). Follow the link below and tell him on Twitter.

    Fuckin’ PAC-MAN of course xD

  • Yuri4prez

    Oh please Mr. Bantegui, tell Namco to release Tale ouside of Japan!!

    Don’t know if anybody will see it, but I’m going to go there now.

  • AiQi

    Tales Of Eternia as a PS Network Clasic! I’d buy it the first hour it’s was out.

    • AdamBoy64

      Damn, that would be fantastic. Totally fantastic to have that on their downloadable service. Not very likely.. but! a man can dream..

    This is worth dusting off my twitter account to pester him with I think. Seriously though, us fans should do all we can to pursade Namco that we want Tales!

  • FAUNA

    From a western gamer: People, PLEASE SUPPORT THE ART MASTERWORKS ‘ENSLAVED’ & ‘MAJIN’ BY BUYING NEW, NOT USED COPIES! You are seriously missing out on some incredible experiences. These are the kinds of games we should be demanding & getting (based on art, style, exploration, fantasy/sci-fi, & story/cinematics), so make your vote. PLEASE. & I want ‘TALES OF XILLIA’ (JAPANESE VOICE TRACK OPTION & MANUAL ROTATABLE CAMERA PLEASE)….

    • AdamBoy64

      Fauna, your wishes for a ‘manual rotatable camera’ for Xillia may come true. As Sir Sal (yes, he’s been knighted) wrote in an earlier Xillia article.. The game will use a behind-the-back perspective instead of a overhead perspective.

      I’m really intrigued as to how they’ll pull that off.

      • Yuri4prez

        That’s good to hear about the camera on Xillia, and yes, Sal is a HUGE credit to his race for working so hard to get Tales to it’s fans!

        Thanks Sal!

    Thanks… Well one things for sure, it seems like Namco has lightened up on the social side since I left. Great job Rich and team. Miss working with you all…

    How can they see the numbers you posted in the other article and not think this is a money making idea?

  • talesoffan

    Thanks for this article. It’s nice they are listening and developing a dialog with the fans.

  • roy

    PLZ MAKE TALES OF XILIA FOR XBOX360 TOO T.T

  • jingles69

    Hope they do them all! especially tale of vesperia the better version. have you seen all that shit you can do. freaking awsome! why dont they release the other tales game over here and say fuck you with all the new ones. we are just as big of fans as they are, and possibly bigger fans than them. that is messed up man!

  • roy

    Do it for 360 too PLZ! More people able to buy it—->more money

  • Tmillyo88

    Alright, i have a facebook account but I can’t seem to comment on that page. Do I have to join their friends list or something? If so, I can’t seem to do even that. Just to be on topic, I want all Tales for PS3: Vesperia, Graces F, and the upcoming Xillia.

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/PrinceHeir# PrinceHeir

    i fucking want at least the PS3 Tales ones. if they prove to be successful port also the PSP one’s.

    if not at least put the PS1 games on the PS1 Classic section on PSN
