High-resolution scan surfaces online.

A high-resolution scan of Jump’s Next Tales of tease has hit the net.

Namco Bandai launched a countdown site for the title yesterday. It will see a formal unveil at the Tales of Festival on June 2.

Japanese blogs are pointing out similarities between the artwork and Tales of Xillia. You will see the language of the Elenpios (a people or city in or related to Xillia – I haven’t played the game, so I can’t be sure) in certain areas of the artwork.

The “X” in “Next Tales of” is the same “X” found in the Tales of Xillia logo.

The teaser site for the game is also the same sort of purple as Milla’s side of the Tales of Xillia website.

It’s also worth noting that Namco Bandai usually trademarks the name of their next Tales game several months ahead of its announcement. In this case, Namco Bandai has yet to trademark a new name, which would make Tales of Xillia 2 seem very plausible, considering it already has a trademark on Tales of Xillia.

It is possible we may be looking at Tales of Xillia 2.

    Really hope that this Tales game will be localised in English. If this is the sequel for Tales of Xillia, then Namco Bandai would do us a big favour by releasing the first game in English ASAP to catch up with the possible sequel.

    … Don’t rush it this time? :3

      @Hinano: Can you tell me how it was rushed? I haven’t played it, but I’ve heard a lot of people say this. Was the story too short? It doesn’t look as obvious as Soul Calibur 5.

    Tales of symphonia 3 XD ..psst i wish.. or at least tales of vesperia 2 ….or maybe tales of the world for a ps3?

    • Sal Romano

      I would say no to both. ToS 3 is a bit out there and it can’t be Tales of the World considering it’s been confirmed as a mothership release, not a spinoff.

        @Sal Romano: Good point, but i would still like for it to be ToS 3 at least for the Wii u or ps3 maybe xbox idc as long as the game is good. But ummm if anything they should make this “Next tales of …” as good as the old ones , i enjoy the new ones but i like the old ones better

    Another piece of evidence I didn’t include in the article, but should have (might add it), Namco Bandai has yet to trademark the name for their next Tales. It’s usually trademarked a couple months before the announcement. Though, I’ve been checking the JPN trademark database everyday, and there hasn’t been a thing.
