Tales trademarks suggest new core entry next year

Thursday, 18th July 2013 06:55 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Namco Bandai has made three trademarks apparently related to the Tales RPG franchise.

Translating from Japanese reports, Gematsu notes the three new trademarks are:

  • Tales of Zestoria
  • Tales of Creales
  • Tales of Catastora

As Gematsu notes, Namco Bandai usually makes a number of red herring trademarks, sometimes not even bothering to trademark the real one till later on, so none of these titles are confirmed.

The most recent core entry in the Tales series is Tales of Xillia 2, which hit Japan in November 2012. Going by historic pattern, we can probably expect a new mothership title in Japan in 2014 – although what platform it will release on is anybody’s guess.

Tales of Xillia arrives in North America and Europe in the first week of August. Tales of Xillia 2 and Tales of Symphonia Chronicles are both expected in the west next year.

    I hope it’s the first Tales game for the PS4 and will mak it faster to the west…

    This time we won’t have the issue of having the Xbox earlier and have to wait for a “finally complete” port for the PlayStation, because the first iteration was made for the first next-gen console which sold bad in Japan but the west gets no port, because there is already an english version and stuff… as in 2006

    @1 – It’s not. Baba has said they’re sticking with PS3 for, at least, one more title, which is fine with me. Maybe the Tales title after this may be the first PS4 one.
