Skyscrapers, modern cities, and a train.

The first scan of the next Tales game, or Next Tales of, announced in the latest Jump, has surfaced online. It provides a first look at artwork for the title, which include big, modern cities, skyscrapers, and a train.

A teaser site is mentioned in Jump, though it is not yet live. It will be accessible here when it is, however.

Platform, date, and price are TBA. Namco Bandai will give the game a full unveil on June 2 at the Tales of Festival. Stay tuned.

Thanks, My Game News Flash.

      edit: wrong reply

  • RyoonZ

    Last I heard you’re not a “True Fans” if you play any other language beside Japanese.

    • dart2087

      @RyoonZ: WTF?

      I will not play in a language I don’t understand… My deal is Namco translate your games and I gladly paid $ 60 for them. :)

      • RyoonZ

        @dart2087: Says True Fans of Tales in my forum.

        • anime10121

          @RyoonZ: Sorry but they’re idiots:)

    • anime10121

      @RyoonZ: Im a HUGE Tales fan, but I’m not playing a game where I wont be able to understand the story without looking at 2 different tranlation books ( one for katakana and the other for the kanji) AND the Internet.

      I support releases in the language I understand, which unfortunately means I dont get to play some of the better installments in the series (Destiny II, Rebirth, Destiny remake etc). But alas, that’s Namdai’s fault not mine.
      Edit: I know you were joking but still I hate when we miss out on releases in favor of others. Hopefully we end up getting all the following releases after Graces, starting with Xillia and then moving unto this game (which I still say seems like a steampunk Tales).

      • RyoonZ

        @anime10121: I know right, I wantto play all Tales games in English because I don’t know Japanese, I know Kanji though because I’m Chinese no actually not only Tales but all JRPGs. And I’m not kidding, that’s what I’ve been told, I just posted this image to a forum of mine and says that I wish it come to US and that was a response I get.

      Purist is everywhere :/

      I know that general consensus is that Japanese voice act is usually superior compared to its western counterpart (which i agree, to be honest), but personally if i want to invent hours of my precious time into a game, i prefer the one that i CAN understand.

    • zaedaus

      @RyoonZ: can’t agree more

  • potionsmaster

    That art style is so smexy. Hopefully it will come to PS3 sooner or later :)

  • FearMonkey

    Looks great! :)

    I’m sure this will be out in Japan before we get Xillia though. >_<

  • LordKaiser

    Don’t worry. We’ll have Xillia by the time they get this…I hope.

    • AdamBoy64

      @LordKaiser: I admire your confidence.

  • zaedaus

    i think the right definition of “true fans” are those who still buy any localized tales games regardless if its a port of inferior console without astounishing graphic or english dub only

    I’m excited to see what kind of tales of this turns out to be.

  • captainhowdy

    this game looks stunning. I hope one day we get this.

  • wade010

    Tales of Midgar!! wooooo

  • FaithlessMr

    I’m already drooling over the thought of this game alone. Awesome artwork!

  • Skelter

    okay so everyone lets all cross our fingers for the next tales not pulling a FFXIII (although i love XIII and XIII-2). with the addition of modern cities with “SKYSCRAPERS…..we may see a change in the games original charm……i don’t think Xillia had an overworld map (neither did Graces[I was highly disappointed that you couldn’t fly around])…and if you ask me…they seem to be moving further away from overworld maps in general :( ….so lets HOPE it won’t follow the “Chapter” formula.
