Yappari Tales of Stage in TGS 2013.

Namco Bandai will hold a “Yappari Tales of Stage” at its Tokyo Game Show booth on September 22, the last day of the event, the publisher announced.

At last year’s event, the company debuted a new trailer and details for Tales of Xillia 2, which was upcoming at the time. As for this year, there are several possibilities:

  • We could see a new Tales console game – likely called Tales of Zestiria
  • We could see more of Tales of Symphonia Chronicles
  • We could see the new Tales mobile games – Tales of Link, Tales of Bibliotheca, and Tales of Phantasia

Thanks, Tokkurin.

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    Tales of Zestiria FTW. Btw Namco Needs to Advertise the Tales series on TV in America & Europe. I love FF but its time it shares the Fame.

    • Bobby Jennings

      They actually did that with Xillia

  • Adurna012

    Always excited for a (possible) console Tales.

  • bloodiOS

    Yes, I need that Tales of Console Release.

  • CirnoTheStrongest

    Really hope they don’t waste it speaking about things we already know

  • Duc PC-QB

    Tales of Vita – Tales of Life

    1 last PS3 Tales, 1 more HD Collection (Destiny), and then PS4 Tales for 20th Anniversary seems like a perfect plan. I’m not saying they’re announcing those in that event of course.

    • 永次

      Tales of Eternia Remake Full Voice for VITA, I need it.

  • Coloso90909

    More iOS games -_-.

  • Raiyu

    Think there is a possibility we’ll hear about Tales of the Tempest R? Innocence R was announced at TGS 11, and Innocence R was announced October of last year so this could be the right time.

  • Guest

    cant wait next tales of,(i hope for Ps4 or Vita) Good news better than Square…Whatever.

  • DyLaN

    Gaius (is that him?), what the heck are you wearing? XD

    • Arcana Gear

      o.O Didn’t noted until you said…. disturbing.

        He’s dressed as Dymlos from Tales of Destiny

    • Souji Tendou

      Dymlos costume. Makes sense actually, cause they both share the same voice actor in the JP version.

  • Arcana Gear

    Really Really Really Hope that it will be an new console game, now that xillia saga ended i’m curious for the new world/settings/art.

  • dez112

    Just hoping its a new Tales game.

  • Zackasaur

    PS4 Tales would be stellar. :3

  • EX+

    PS4 tales game. I will shit bricks if that happens.

    • AdamBoy64

      It probably will at some point – just not for a few years yet.

      • Budgiecat

        just as long as they don’t pull another Vesperia (release it on 360 and lock out the ability for a localized PS3 version)

        • karmacoma

          Doubtful at this point. Vesperia sold well in NA and I assume EU, but it bombed hard in Japan, as did every other exclusive JRPG on the console (timed or otherwise). They do well there for a week or two then just stop selling. So no matter how much cash MS offers to pony up, I think Bamco has seen that their home country just does not care about XBOX consoles.

          • AdamBoy64

            Yes, very true.
            I can’t say that upsets me.

          • EX+

            I just hope devs like Square realize this after KH3 and FF15. I don’t like the fact that the bone is holding back those games. I also hope square makes a clear difference between the PS4 and XBO versions. Compare Deep Down to Ryse and you know that the PS4 is way more powerful.

            • karmacoma

              I don’t know that the XB1 will necessarily hold back the PS4 version. I remember Nomura saying he’s going to max it out on PC, DX11 the phrase he used, then port down to the consoles. Sounds like he’s planning to just maximize each platform as much as he can.

              Also, I have no qualms with JRPGs landing on the XB1. No reason why the games shouldn’t be multiplatform since there ARE gamers outside Japan. :p
              But exclusives.. yeah, those wouldn’t do as well.

              • EX+

                I hope you’re right about what Nomura said. But you’ve got a point.

              • EX+

                Are you sure about what you said? About maximizing the consoles?

                • karmacoma


                  If you fast forward to about ~49 minutes in that video, he talks about the development. But yeah, basically he says that in the past, they made multiplatform games by focusing on one platform and then just bringing it over the next one. But this time, he doesn’t want to see any drop in quality.

                  Then he says that they’re building the game to specs higher than either of the next-gen consoles using DX11. His desire is to attain that quality when porting down to the consoles.

                  • EX+

                    So he’s basically maxing out to replicate the PC version better… now I’m sure the PS4 version will be graphically better. That and KH3.

  • Chardo

    Tales of tempest R for vita is also likely due to the teasing they did on innocence R and hearts R.

    • http://twitter.com/GNPixie Lynx

      I dunno.

      It would need a lot more than just a remake.

      It would need a complete rewrite as well.

      • Rogerrmark

        Although I love Graces,it needed f Arc to have a decent lenght,imo(the story,I mean)

        Tempest would require f,g,h,i,j…Arcs to become satisfying :/

        • Chardo

          that is exactly why I am excited if we ever get a Tempest Remake, it would feel like a completely new tales game, it would need 3 new playable characters, every old character would get a completely new revamped set of artes and ougies, it would probably have a completely new battle system, and just like you said, an almost completely new and more extensive storyline, sounds pretty exciting to me.

      • 永次

        Tales of Innocence R and Hearts R are new games, not only remakes, they change everything; battle system, re-voiced, map, plot, new music and remaked music…
        Put a Tales of Rebirth battle system in Tempest R, do a Anime Opening, do full voice, change the plot and add new characters and it will be a great game.

    With the way Yappari keep getting thrown around, maybe next one might be named Tales of Yappari?

  • new_tradition

    I need to hurry and finish Xillia so I can try to make sense of that pic, lol

    Excited to see what will show at TGS ^^

    • karmacoma

      It’s from Xillia 2, but yeah, I need to hurry and finish it as well.

  • Anime10121

    Doubt well see anything on a brand new bonafide console entry, as 99% of the time, those are reserved for the Tales of Featival. Eitherway I’m excited to see what comes outta this, as more Tales is never a bad thing.

  • tubers

    Tales of Mobilia


  • Elvick

    I’m prepared for nothing. Thus I will remain disappointment free.

    • Willgaea

      Prepare for everything. Expect nothing.
