Wednesday, 9th May 2012 15:01 GMT By Johnny Cullen

The latest issue of Jump in Japan has confirmed the next Tales of game will be announced next month. The announcement will be made at the Tales of festival on June 2-3 in Japan. The new title is merely called “Next Tales of…” without any platforms attached. Its assumed this’ll be the announce of the next HD title in the series following Xillia for PS3. Graces F launches on European PS3s this summer.

    A game that turns into a western 360 release plox! I really don’t get what they do with their games. ToV sold very well for them and stuff that sells less they seem to do that more often then what works. Like they woke up for once and did another run of Tales of Aybss for the 3DS and it’s only in stock in few places now thou least it’s in stock most games from the tales series that get a western release sell out on release (look at ToV and how much that game fetched on ebay well until it got a games on demand release [nice one!])

    I want more tales :( xillia needs a western release thou no dout it’ll be ps3 only meh I’ve had a go at graces f and meh I hate using the ps pads like once you’ve touched a 360 controller you can’t go back

    Another Tales game on 360 would be great. Vesperia was excellent.

    @1 If the DS3 offends you, honestly there are 360 controllers customer for the PS3 and adapters too.

    However at both above posters it’s highly unlikely that Tales will hit the 360. First factor is that Tales is an extremely niche brand outside of Japan. ToV sold quite badly for them, in fact the PS3 release was only to make the development profitable in Japan and it sold what the 360 version did WW within a month in one region. Tales of Graces on the Wii sold quite terribly as well which prompted ToG F for the PS3 which sold fairly well. ToX probably was the highest selling game in the Tales Franchise in a long long time.
    It’s more than unlikely that they’ll release tales games outside the PS3. If ToGF sells worse here then expect ToX not to arrive in western shores(despite the trademark) and the next tales to be a Japanese PS3 exclusive. NB knows that the market that buys Tales games is primarily Japanese PS3 owners. Unless I’m mistaken ToTA also sold about bare minimum and I’m fairly certain the Vita version ToIR just barely sold more than the 3DS game.

    In other words expecting the game on the 360 unless they have a sizeable budget and are willing to do a MP first time release (which has never happened so far in the series outside of remakes released on different platforms later) is wishful thinking. It’s just highly unlikely that they’ll make a Tales game outside of the PS3 this generation. maybe they’ll give the 3DS a shot again since it’s selling like hotcakes in Japan but any other platform doubt it.

    Likewise those hoping for a ToV PS3 release in the west, same thing wishful thinking.

    Yeah. (cba with adapters, stuff like party chat etc can’t live without either 6-8 mates all doing different stuff yet chatting at same time my ps3 collects dust until god of war etc comes out)

    Anyway, above sumed it all up very well. I mean we only got ToV thanks to Microsoft. (never thought I’d say that lols)

    I just don’t see why if it comes out in english in one area why not all (Nintendo took a long time to see that <.< with the Wii RPG's) I know this is abit more work then that. But meh they'll do better if they put the game out there more. Hopes in this day and age they advance and start doing MP releases (LOL) But… meh this is Japan we are on about. :( well just have to enjoy whatever we get tripped fed to us.
