Tales of Zestiria

Namco Bandai premiered the debut trailer for Tales of Zestiria at Jump Festa.

It is the same trailer shown for the game at its reveal last week, but now in direct-feed high-definition. It also confirms Motoi Sakuraba and Go Shiina are composing.

Watch the video below.

  • Learii

    HELL YA i be looking forward for this game

    • icecoffemix

      Environment seems to be a lot better than Xillia, nice.

      • bloodiOS

        Best looking Tales to date, in my opinion. It might even look better by the time the game comes out.

        • Astrid Huang

          I remember Xillia’s first screenshots didn’t use anti aliasing, but when it’s released the graphics in game was much better,

          • bloodiOS

            They might’ve done something but I don’t think it was AA, because I saw a lot of aliasing during my playthrough.

        • Samsara09

          Indeed…this game is already this beautiful…and I doubt it is even half complete yet.

    • Willgaea

      Here’s to hoping we get minimal load screens.

    • Wolfe

      Thanks for the screens mate.

  • bloodiOS

    The game can’t come out soon enough…

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    I can’t wait to see if they keep in Link Artes.

  • LordKaiser

    PS3 never dies

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      Especially in Japan

  • shogunknight

    Nice.

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

    Looks way better than the screenshots

  • TheExile285

    Wow…

  • HarryHodd

    This looks amazing.

  • Wolf Star

    It’s more beautiful than before and it’s in HD :)

  • new_tradition

    Ahhhh…So vague, but I already want it *_*

  • Astrid Huang

    YESSS GO SHIINA IS BACK!!!

    And the graphics definitely look superior than Xillia. I hope it could be a little bit smoother and more detailed though. Let’s see if they can work it out.

    • bloodiOS

      It would wonderful if they can implement MLAA outside of battle.

  • icecoffemix

    http://i.minus.com/ibteutUKLvfuUn.gif

    I thought he’s left handed but it seems he’s ambidextrous with acrobatic sword skills. Battle looks fast too, can’t wait.

    You can see that he changed his sword from hand to hand during combo, I think this is first for Tales character?

    • bloodiOS

      I’d like to see him use nitouryuu ;)

      • icecoffemix

        We already have Lloyd for that. :P

        • Zuhri69

          Then another person to dual wield. Dual wield is like hyper beam. Once you get it, the rest is shit.

          • fyi1191

            There’s also Spada from Innocence.
            But no one can match Leon Magnus or Ritcher when it comes to dual wielding. Maybe Ludger?

            • Zuhri69

              Man, how did I ever forget Spada…

    • fyi1191

      His Souryuu Rengazan (Dragon Swarm) is gonna be awesome.

    • Mar Mar

      Asbel does that too am I right?

      • icecoffemix

        Not sure, haven’t played Graces F yet. :P

      • Revorse

        Yuri as well. I believe.

    • Budgiecat

      He’s really busting up his knee there…

  • PhoenixAutomatic~♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪~

    I Think I’m Gonna Die Soon Of Hype, I Would Require Medical Attention Soon, Cuz The Game Looks So Fucking Gorgeous! I Can’t Stop Screaming.

  • fyi1191

    Please let us have at least 8 characters with balanced genders.

    • LordKaiser

      But I doubt it will be balanced anyways. I expect 1 of the females to be a loli..

  • Elvick

    Wonder if they’ll ever make a game that looks like Vesperia again. Visually. Not that I mind the current style, but I’d like a variety.

  • Zuhri69

    I really like the pattern on his coat. Very neat. Now, who is he. Dovahkiin, the sage of the six paths?

  • Nightcore34

    Hmm, the graphics look worse than Xillia, a new engine perhaps? Bust still looking forward to this.

    • Samsara09

      Worse?Wait a moment while I use your time machine.Just kidding.Well,from what we saw,they are using xillia’s graphics again.And it got even more colorful.

      • Nightcore34

        Hmm, must just be me then, however it seems to be worse, might just be like hatsune miku where watching it, the graphics are alright, play it and graphics are amazing.

        • Astrid Huang

          If you see the grasses, you can see that the graphics quality did improve from Xillia.

          • Nightcore34

            Oh yea, it’s not the background I have a problem with, I think the character models, especially the facial features are a bit lacklustre

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

    I’m not entirely sure why, but… The female’s face looks a little manly for some reason? Maybe it’s the jawline or eyebrows, but that face definitely looks off when comparing it to her hair and the rest of her body.

    • fyi1191

      You thought so too?
      Hermaphrodite incoming.

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        Translation:

        Futa doujins/artwork incoming.

        • 永次

          Translation:

          Good doujins incoming.

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            Hey, I said futa. Did I stutter? If that doesn’t mean “good”, then what does?

            • Pyrofrost

              Nothing wrong with ‘futa,’ I’ve read and watched a few myself.

      • Samsara09

        I would be really ashamed of myself, if that is the case-edit-she being hermaphrodite.Because she has a really cute face.

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Soooo… You’d be ashamed of yourself if it turned out she was more like a he? Well, that certainly speaks volumes about your character if you’re so quick to be ashamed over something like that.

          • tokyobassist

            Yo NIER was pretty tight.

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              Kaine did come to mind, heh.

          • Samsara09

            I meant “hemaphrodite”-don’t know if you know what the word means.Since that happened in other series-and I was half asleep-I kinda considered the possibility-even if it is 0-of it happening.

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              I was well aware of what you were saying, lol. We’re just pulling your leg anyway. She’s female, but I’m still not comfortable with her face ><

    • Samsara09

      god…good to see you will always a bone to pick or two with the game-Edit-or with the series.That face looks totally fine.Edit-It is a face,what could you expect?

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        “always” ? This is my first actual comment towards the game itself and you’re making it seem like I’ve always done it? Hell, I haven’t had TIME to ALWAYS do it because it was just announced recently, lol.

        Also, hey buddy? “Fine” is subjective, so stop trying to pass off your opinion as a fact. Her face isn’t fine and that’s just my opinion on it, so if you can’t deal with that, maybe you should refrain from posting comments towards people who have different opinions from yourself.

        I’d hardly consider me pointing out her face “picking a bone or two” with the game. Overreaction much? Good grief.

        She can still be your waifu, so just relax already, man.

        • Anime10121

          Hey I feel ya bro, I cant stand either of the character designs either. While I am hyped for the game, these two are by far some of the worst character designs I’ve ever seen in Tales game.

          • Samsara09

            well,pick a pen and design it yourself.

            • Anime10121

              Would you please shut the hell up and let me have MY OPINION. Just because I don’t like the designs of this games protagonists doesn’t mean I don’t love the series, nor does it mean I won’t buy the game.

              I never said I was michealangelo but that doesn’t mean I can’t give my OPINION on art.

              I swear, just because you are a fan of a series doesn’t mean you have to fight everyone who has a differing opinion on certain aspects of the series. I have and have loved every localized entry of the series to date, I love the series, however artistically I think that these are the worst designs I’ve seen for the series.

              Doesn’t really matter, as I’m not crazy enough to let something that small deter me from what will assuredly be an amazing game. But I can assure you Namdai does not need you to white knight their game for them against anyone who has a slight criticism about it.

              So dear sir, thank you sir for nothing.

              • Samsara09

                indeed.I don’t need you to like this.At least show respect for the work.”Can’t stand it”,”worst design in the series”…while detesting the designs is pretty easy,Designing caracters isn’t .They spent months doing it for the 20th anniversary,a real special occasion…and they are doing it for all scenes and battles when the characters show up.And the company approved of the design,which means that it fits the game.

                And,if you wanna a bonus,thank your little “friend” “Tats” for annoying me,not with his point or the reasons for it…but the way he worded it and his following “response” to me when I questioned his claims.

                • Anime10121

                  And again I nor Namco Bandai need you to white knight their series for them. The only kind of respect I need to give them comes outta my wallet, as that is enough to “show my respect” for their hard work. As I’ve said the designs are the worst of the series IN MY OWN OPINION and nothing you can say will change that. It doesn’t matter how hard they’ve worked on the designs, if they don’t appeal to me they just don’t.

                  I also fail to see what anything Tats said in your conversation had anything to do with me and how your argument with him led you to basically attacking me for having my own opinion, but whatevs, I’m not gonna continue this anymore, as I’m not going to argue pointlessly over something so minor, so sir
                  http://www.faniq.com/images/blog/fez(1).jpg

                  • Samsara09

                    I would like to apologize.Hope you can accept them.I was really agitated because of that guy,for his ad hominen and i ended up falling into his provocation.Him I don’t mind,but involving you was a mistake.you had nothing to do with that,and was just saying your honest opinion…well,you could have worded it better…Still,sorry.

                    • Anime10121

                      Its all good man, I just dont like being attacked for no reason, so alls well and all that jazz :)

                      Though I still dont feel that I could have worded it any differently, as I feel the way I feel, but regardless, its good, its settled bro :P

                    • Samsara09

                      It wasn’t exactly for no reason my post,but it was for quite an worthless one,lol.
                      Hope we can talk about this game on more friendly terms next time…and you have my word this won’t happen again.

                      Still,I don’t think you should,but please,if you have an opinion that seems to be overly critic,”worst in the series”,”can’t stand it”…be careful.

                      it won’t be me next time this happens,but there will be another who could feel offended for seeing the people he or she admires for their hard work and contribution to the series being so…stomped by your opinion,as honest and frank it may be…

                      Art is something divisive.if you don’t like it,no one can say you are wrong or force you to like it.But well,your opinion worded like that could aggravate some short fuse people.

                      Still,it is my fault for being so frank and easy to provoke and/or get angry and i shouldn’t have written for you to get a pen and draw the game….but,well.in any case,Hope you get what I am saying now. :D

                      and indeed it is all settled between us.

        • Samsara09

          You are speaking tons about yourself.You think your opinion is fact,that you have the right to say whatever it pleases you…and that whatever disagrees is an idiot.You even have the gall to say I should shut up?Just because I said she “looks” fine,I didn’t even say she was fine.

          It is just a face,but man,not even a face escapes you… I also meant with the series…but yeah,didn’t say it,so that part was my wrong.

          I thought you had a valid point in saying that tales of wasn’t for you.But…reading your comments now,I think I misunderstood you…and i wasted my time trying to understand you,and even to be polite with the likes of you.

          DON’T call me buddy,I barely know you,and I am already sick of you and your little complex.Well,I am not going to waste my day with you,like mister Wolfe did.Have a fine day.

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            I find it to be rather ironic you come here preaching to me about me talking about myself, yet here you are doing the exact same thing I’m supposedly doing. No, my opinion isn’t fact and not once did I ever state that it was.

            The localization issue IS fact, but how I feel towards her design is an opinion. You’re allowed to think it’s fine and I’m allowed to think it isn’t. Please stop getting so offended just because someone doesn’t agree with you.

            If you honestly believe that someone expressing themselves is a “complex”, then I think it would be best if I not waste any more time with you either since you have a very obstructed view of how the world works.

            You have a fine day also.

  • Samsara09

    Well,they could have extended it a second or two to show how Alicia fights.Oh well,what a beautiful trailer.

  • LunarHaven

    Excellent trailer, the music may still go a slightly bland route but it may also indicate a deep and engrossing path, hard to read which direction the overall will go in, I am pumped though, can’t wait!

    • http://zefhar.deviantart.com Zefhar

      Agree. It looks beautiful!!

  • M3LTY-BLOOD

    Arisha is cute.

  • EspadaKiller

    So awesome. The PS3 still gets all the love!

  • Pyrofrost

    DAMN IT! I go to sleep and this is what I miss. ;-;

    Looks great, I can’t wait, and day one import unless NA gets it within 3 weeks of the JP release.

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      A Tales game being localized within 3 weeks of the JP version? You might as well import. No way that’s happening, lol.

      • Pyrofrost

        It happened with Vesperia, so the possibility exists. That’s why I’m giving it that much room.

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Oh, you mean the beta version? Yeah, that doesn’t count. If it was the PS3 version, you would have been onto something there, but alas…

          Don’t hold your breath. This certainly isn’t a common occurrence.

          • Pyrofrost

            So the original release is a beta version for any game that gets a port with minor additions now?

            I didn’t say I was expecting it to happen. I’m just not ignoring the possibility.

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              Minor additions? Really? I’m assuming you also think the jump from Tales of Graces to Tales of Graces F was minor as well then?

              You know… Especially all of those bugs that transferred along with the “minor” additions. Oh wait.

              Also, the possibility will always exist, but there’s a difference in expecting the possibility to be a higher percentage than it actually is.

              • Pyrofrost

                There is a bit of difference between Graces/F and Vesperia, but ok~

                Graces F had an expansion attached with about 30 hours of ‘post-game’ story content. Much like Persona 3 FES did. That treatment of Graces F makes it totally different from the get-go (without factoring in other additions: new gear, arts, quests, minigames, and what-not). Not to mention, Graces F had a major bug, which I exploited the hell out of.

                Vesperia got one additional character, more time with Flynn, some additional dialog, and a few additional CS to fill out Patty (again, without factoring in new gear, arts, quests, and minigames). Nothing of substance was actually added to Vesperia, nothing to expand the overarching story, it was all filler. It was only something to give stupid people like me, enough incentive to buy a 2nd copy of a game they just bought.

                But again, if you see something more grand that’s fine.
                I will just agree to disagree.

                • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                  I just think it was pretty obvious they were using the 360 and Wii to test the game before releasing the full product on the actual console they wanted to from the beginning (i.e. PS3). The same could be said for Tales of Innocence and Tales of Hearts as well. Don’t you find it to be rather odd that suddenly when the Vita is catching up in hardware sales, NBGI decides, “Hey, ya know what? We’ll just re-release this game we already have with additional features.” ?

                  It wouldn’t surprise if they had all of this planned from the beginning, cause honestly… Let’s face it. Nintendo and Microsoft aren’t exactly where the Tales fanbase is. That may have been true during the days of Phantasia, but that was a looooooooooong time ago. So yeah, anybody who honestly believes they are getting the complete/proper version of a Tales game on a Nintendo or Microsoft console these days is sorely mistaken.

                  • LordKaiser

                    I hope this gets a world wide release.

                    • Pyrofrost

                      Me too! ^_^

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      No, I’m sure it will. That wasn’t really my point though. I just think it’s a bit delusional to believe that they will release the NA and JP versions so close together since that’s not common practice for them, that’s all.

                      I have nothing against a worldwide release. I just hate when people get their hopes up like that… Especially in situations where they are banking on the company to do something they did ONE time, years ago, again (see: Vesperia).

                    • Pyrofrost

                      To make my point on the situation completely clear on this, just so nothing is misread here.

                      I am neither “expecting” nor do I “have my hopes up” for a simultaneous or near simultaneous release. I’m simply not ignoring the possibility. If pre-orders are up on playasia and amiami for a short while, and nothing is yet given on the Western release and/or it’s not within 3 weeks, I will be pre-ordering the import.

                      However, I’m not sitting here with an unrealistic expectation based on what was an exception.

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      Ah. It just sounded like you were being way too optimistic, lol. Well, thanks for clearing that up then :p

          • Astrid Huang

            Still doesn’t change a fact that they DID release Vesperia japanese and english versions simultanoeusly.

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              That still doesn’t change the fact that they DIDN’T release the Japanese and English versions of their other titles simultaneously. Seriously, it was one time… Please don’t put too much hope in that. The odds show that it’s definitely more common for them to wait a few months before localizing the game.

              I’m not even sure why I’m having to explain myself here due to the large gap between the JP and NA versions of Xillia. It’s like you guys suddenly forgot about that, even though that’s the newest Tales game for NA. Time to pull your heads out of the sand, guys.

        • Samsara09

          yeah,as long as even 1% exists,it is a possibility,hence,it could be expected.Well,maybe by june we will be getting the release date of this game in japan.

          Considering they announced the localization at the same time as this game’s announcement,they are already considering the localization as they are developing this game.

          Well,that could guarantee a quick localization…but,well,not even SE can localize a FF or KH in three weeks.Maybe 3-5 months for this game…Still,usually they would finish the game,wait it sell in japan and months later we would get the game.That is why we usually received it 1-2 years later.

      • Bobby Jennings

        Happened with Vesperia didn’t it?

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Everyone always goes to Vesperia and forgets about the entire rest of the franchise that they didn’t do this with. Let me give you a piece of advice, Bobby. Just because you go to the racetrack and put all of your money on the horse with the least chance of winning and actually win doesn’t mean you should put your money on that horse the next time as well.

          It would be great if they localized this within such a short period after the JP release, but once again… This is NOT common practice for them and Vesperia isn’t the be-all of localized J-RPGs, so please stop putting so much weight into that one game when there are dozens of others that didn’t meet this criteria.

          • Bobby Jennings

            I’m just saying there’s a chance that it could happen. Sorry if I came off as attacking I was just asking if it did happen with Vesperia. Since this is a PS3 title this time, it may have an even greater chance of happening

    • LordKaiser

      Buy the western version too plz. We need more numbers in the west to get more localized.

      • Pyrofrost

        I will after the price drop, and I will even buy it new. I don’t double dip on new release prices though. I don’t generally double dip at all, unless I REALLY like the game. It’s not like I’m “money-bags” here :p

        If they hand the text off to 8-4 or someone else early, and get it out quickly, I won’t even bother importing it.

      • Bobby Jennings

        I’ll always do it. Day 1 too.

  • shafiq95

    tales nowadays looks too colourful,i kinda wish they went with symphonia/abyss/vesperia roots

    • Pyrofrost

      All those games were from Team Symphonia; this game, if I am not mistaken, is a joint project with Team Destiny and Team Symphonia.

      IIRC though, as I have played them all, Team Symphonia’s games are also quite colorful. All the Tales games are.

      • shafiq95

        When i said it’s colorful,i meant it in comparison to stuff pre graces f.I know that tales game has always been colourful,i just thought the bright colors they used nowadays are a little too ‘colourful’ as in colours like crimson red,light blue and pink.The colors dont really mix well when they used those kind of colours too much.

        • Pyrofrost

          I guess you can always take comfort in the fact that it’s not Tales of Graces pastel colors :p

    • Astrid Huang

      Tales of series are always colorful.
      If they change Tales into a game with “barren lands” style than I will stop being a huge Tales fan.

      • shafiq95

        i dont mean it to go all dark souls i just thought the colors they used in graces f and xilia are too colorful and shiny compared to the older stuff,it looks like some generic highschool anime

        • Samsara09

          Oh,guess you finally found out that animes and JRPG share the same roots…

    • Ladius

      Those games were pretty “colorful” themselves, if anything the Xillia game had a more sober, muted palette.

    • MrRobbyM

      They’ve always been about the same, at least since those you’ve mentioned. Graces was a bit more than the others by a bit, I guess.

    • Anime10121

      Lolwut, by the very nature of its design, Vesperia is one ofcthe most coplorful entries in the entire series…

  • 永次

    Go Shiina? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

    So I usually watch trailers twice. Once for hype and once for an objective thought. I really like the way the combat looks but I’m not digging the character designs tbh. I think Xillia was probably the most visually pleasing.

    I know a lot of people are expecting a quicker localization but hell, at least this series is getting more localizations than a series I have a soft spot for like Yakuza.

  • Northstar

    You are comparing Zestiria’s graphics with the other games in the series, with Xenoblade or with Uncharted, Crysis?? Vesperia cheats because cel shading is beautiful even in Wind Waker, Zone of the Enders, Okami today. The other Tales games are old. Zestiria graphics are amazing!!! With little information still does not give to any conclusion, but so far is amazing: exploration (amazing, Xenoblade feelings), characters, desing(remind me of the old days, or do you want the characters to look like the characters of Persona; Loyd, Yuri, Asbel, Jude look all the same too…), battle system( beautiful, freer and it seems that Slay is ambidextrous?).What gives to complain?

  • Anime10121

    Oh Sheet Oh SHEET OH SHEET! Go mother freaking Shiina back in the composing seat! This game keeps sounding better and better!!!

  • DesmaX

    Whoah, I didn’t see that Go Shiina was working on this before.

    I’m way more interessed in this now

  • badmoogle

    This will be my first console Tales game i’ll buy (i’ve only played Phantasia on GBA and the Jpn demo of Vesperia in the past).
    I never liked any of the character designs from previous Tales games but there’s something in the characters in this one that i really like.The world also looks more open than previous Tales games (i love the scene where the character is running in the fields) and the art style is very beautiful.
    If i like the combat enough then i may try some of the previous Tales games as well (and overlook the annoying looking characters) since from what i understand the combat is the same in all Tales games.

    • 永次

      The “same” is the base LMBS (Linear Motion Battle System) but every Tales of has a different battle system.

      • badmoogle

        I see thanks.From a noob perspective they all looked the same to me (when watching gameplay videos).:p Can i ask which one has the best battle system in your opinion?

        • 永次

          Tales of Destiny 2, Tales of Destiny PS2/DC, Tales of Rebirth, Tales of Graces f and Tales of Xillia 2 are the TOP.

          • badmoogle

            Thanks!I’ll write them on my list to check them after i play Zestiria (assuming i will like the game and want more)

        • Bobby Jennings

          Tales of Destiny DC, Tales of Graces F, Tales of Xillia 2, Tales of Hearts

  • Charlie

    Ooooooooooooooooooooh. Now that’s what i call a pretty game.

  • fireemblembeast

    Go Shiina is back? Hell to the yeah!

  • Wolf Star

    Who’s Go Shina?? That is everyone talking about?

    • DesmaX

      Tales of Legendia composer. He also works with the God Eater series

      • Wolf Star

        Thank you :D

    • 永次

      A composer who did one game in Tales of and no more.
      He did a OST that didn’t works with a serie like Tales of and is better for games like God Eater, God of War…

      Motoi Sakuraba needs the freedom that has in Tri-Ace or BatenKaitos, Trusty Bel… with his 2 friends. He said long ago that Namco say him how need to be the music in the Tales of games.

  • LunarHaven

    I hope Go Shiina get’s the biggest chunk of the soundtrack, I wish he got all of it to be honest, Sakuraba needs a break, half his tracks or more from a lot of his soundtracks sounds like he wrote them while eating noodles and using the bathroom, like he doesn’t care too much.

    • 永次

      Sakuraba -> Battle themes, Boss themes and Dungeon themes.
      Go Shiina -> Town themes and field themes.
      Sakuraba & Shiina -> Epic moments themes.

      Go Shiina didn’t know the style of Tales of, Tales of Legendia has a good soundtrack, but not for a Tales of, the battle themes are really boring.

      Tales of Innocence/R composer copies better the style of Sakuraba.

    • Samsara09

      I am rather afraid of talking about music in the series…well,I am going to suppose Sakuraba does the brunt of the ost in the series,except legendia,and especially the following battle themes,that are my faves.

      Legendia had some of my favorites in the series,like “seeking victory”,”the man in red”,”Raging nerifes”…etc

      but Sakuraba also did some great music…”beat the angel”,”fightning of the spirit”,”End of a thought”,”It can waver and fight”,..”Akward Justice”,”Raising the cross”,”At the time of farewell”,”meaning of birth”…”Believe in me”…”Destroy the time factor”…”for the sake of mutual proof”…etc.Well,he made for more games,so this is expected.

      Sorry,but,this is how music works.It is pretty hit or miss…At the very least respect the guy for his work.Still,go shinra could make some amazing music…and if they work together with Sakuraba…geez,godly.

    • Pekola

      You’re right. It’s not even that he’s bad. But it’s like he’s phoning it in.

  • Heavenly_King

    Graphically, it looks like an HD 3DS game

    • Northstar

      This comment is for any game in the Tales of series, Xenoblade, Fire Emblem, blábláblá. You are one who likes more graphic than anything else. You should play Crysis and… be happy :)

      • Heavenly_King

        I know the environments are not possible on the 3DS, but still the graphics quality looks similar to a 3DS game in HD. I am saying this based on how RE: Revelations looks.

    • Willgaea

      If the 3ds tried to pull this off it would probably melt. I love my 2ds, but it will never play a game like this. Not till we get the ALL DS. It plays all Nintendo games at 1080p, 60 frames a second, and can stream all games from the Nintendo Wii U regardless of how far you are. So basically a vita.

      • Heavenly_King

        well, Resident Evil Revelations, looks awesome on the 3DS; but for a PS3 game it looks outdated.

        The textures in the armor aren’t smooth. You see them as if they were jpg files.

  • Willgaea

    So are they going single player with this game or are we finally getting some split screen couch co-op?

    • Anime10121

      What do ya mean? Most Tales of games have co-op, and if you’re talking overworld co op, theres no way that can even work….

      • Willgaea

        Split screen overworld co-op. :]

    Some of the comments in here. Let’s play nice and respect each other, please. Thanks.

    • Pyrofrost

      I respect your restraint my friend, and I know you don’t like doing it; but I’d say it’s safe to start deleting a bunch of comments.

      Many post in this thread are nothing but trash talk and clutter.

  • PrinceHeir

    looking great :)

  • Omega_Shiro

    looking good as always loving the character designs reminds me of vesperia and symphonia maybe xillia as well maybe that’s just me and go shiina coming back seems like an added bonus for some I want to see what he has composed this time some parts of it looked improved from xillia like the dragon but I cant tell if there is much change in the look of the game of yet still I CANT WAIT TO PLAY!!!

  • HarryHodd

    Loving the vibe that this trailer brings. I have a feeling the next trailer is gonna be awesome. We ain’t seen nothing yet.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    This thread is open again. I finally had some time to take a look at all the comments in here. The troll has been removed, continue on with the discussion. Just remember to respect each other and have fun. =)

  • Budgiecat

    moe is moe. What isnt moe these days.

    Also quit using that tired meme line please…you’re better than that

  • Zuhri69

    Well, at least it’s a bearable level of moe. I hope.

  • bloodiOS

    Man, I’ve disagreed with you many times before but damn, I’ve never seen such a jerk.

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

    Yeah, disagreeing is fine. In fact, different opinions is what makes the world go around. It’s obvious, though, he is simply just out for blood, so I’m not going to take him as seriously.

  • LordKaiser

    Who are you referring to? Hikari or Wolfe?

  • bloodiOS

    Wolfe. I seriously hate it when someone tells people to shut up just because he/she doesn’t like others’ opinions.

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

    And this is why I’ll respect you more than him when it comes to sharing opinions. Sure, it can get heated at times during a disagreement, but I don’t recall a time where you simply just told someone (or me in particular) to “shut up” just because you didn’t like what they had to say :p

  • LordKaiser

    They’re after Hikari obviously. I think they got in just to troll him but I could be wrong. It’s not that someone would make 2 accounts to troll him… I hope but everything is possible.

  • Pyrofrost

    >I don’t recall a time where you simply just told someone (or me in particular) to “shut up” just because you didn’t like what they had to say

    Which is why I didn’t bother to upvote him with comments like that, even though he upvoted me.
    I don’t support or condone that kind of behavior, especially when personal attacks are involved.

    You and I had our discussion, we agreed to disagree on the matter, and that was that. The book was closed.

  • shafiq95

    When i said it’s colorful,i meant it in comparison to stuff pre graces f.And i’m just giving out my opinions on stuff like character designs,why do you assume that im shitting on the game

  • Pekola

    Dude, you have no reparation in calling others entitled or douches. And I think we’ve all had enough.

    please stop being so mean and throwing accusations at people. Discussion is a good thing; insulting others is not.

  • Wolfe

    Because you are. With utterly baseless accusations. The colour palette isn’t the problem here. It’s your nostalgia.

  • shafiq95

    getting nostalgia from just a year ago,right

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

    No! You need to shut up! OMG!

    Just shut up! What makes you think you can have a different opinion from me?!

    /sarcasm

  • Wolfe

    “tales nowadays looks too colourful,i kinda wish they went with symphonia/abyss/vesperia roots”
    Hrm. Now let’s see, which of these games are merely a year old… oh right! NONE OF ‘EM. :D

  • Samsara09

    You have the right,but you are just being childish in using it.

  • Samsara09

    indeed

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

    As childish as the person who simply came in here telling me to “shut up” for expressing an opinion he disagreed with? I think you’re pointing your finger at the wrong person here, man.
