    >> Hideo Baba Answers A Few Fan Questions Over At New York Comic Con 2013!

    a745

    HystericalGamez managed to get an interview with Tales of Series Producer Hideo Baba during New York Comic Con 2013! Check it out below:


    Highlights of the interview include:
    • Despite Tales of the Abyss's popularity, at present there are no plans to remake it for a current gen or next gen console (i.e. HD)

    • They wanted people to have the as much of the original experience of Symphonia offers as much as possible for Tales of Symphonia Chronicles, hence a lot of parts in the game were kept in their original state, such as the level caps.

    • They'll certainly consider porting or remastering other titles if Tales of Symphonia Chronicles is successful. However, regarding Tales of Destiny and Tales of Destiny 2, those would be better off with a remake or would require a remake because it mainly uses pixels. At present, there are no plans for that, though.

    • Tales of Xillia 2 release date? "That's a secret for now!" But it'll definitely out for 2014.
    • Baba-san can't really pick a single Tales character as his favorite, but if he really had to choose, it'd be Leon Magnus from Tales of Destiny.

    • Baba-san makes a small laugh upon hearing "Tales of Zestiria." In any case, the "next title" is certainly in the works. We'll just have to wait for it.

    • When asked whether they would consider making more fighting-style games ala Tales of VS, Baba-san mentions that at present fans are asking more for story-driven games with unique characters, so there are no plans for now.

    • It'll be up to Nintendo whether they want to include Tales characters in Smash Bros.

    And remember that Baba-san will be at a lot of places in Europe after NYCC! Check out the schedule below:

    So its up to Nintendo if they add Tales characters to Smash Bros.? that basically means that Namco would be more than glad to have a character in Smash. Now if it doesn't happen we can only blame Sakurai!

    I'm not surprised they're not thinking of bringing Abyss out in HD or anything like that. I mean, it was ported (with the localization extras that didn't make it into the original PS2 version) to the 3DS only 2 years ago.

    As for Destiny, I dunno, I don't want to see another Destiny version to come out. Destiny 2, maybe...
