You've all probably seen the report on Tales of Innocence R's ending hinting at even more Tales remakes coming soon. A few unexpected CGs from the game's hidden dungeon hints that the next upcoming remake, or rather, "re-imagination", will be that of Tales of Hearts.
UPDATE (January 28, 2011): One more picture found!
According to reports, these images showing The Great Winged Whale and the Somas/Weapons from Tales of Hearts can be found in the game's hidden dungeon.
Though this can just be considered as a normal cameo of sorts, a lot of fans are on edge ever since the "next re-imagination" message from Innocence R's ending.
Tales of Hearts was originally released for the Nintendo DS. Though it never reached US or EU shores, it really was one of the better games in the series. It makes me wonder a bit why Namco Bandai would attempt to remake something that's already good.
Anyway, this is a rumor for now until we can get more information.

B-b-but...Hearts is fine. It doesn't need one. D: (IMO, of course. Don't mind me, I'm just a lover of ToH.)
@Herio: Seeing as how I don't have one and have never read up on it, could you elaborate on that last bit?

I would LOVE it if they did re-make Tales of Hearts! It's my all time favorite Tales game and I honestly think it did not get enough attention as it should have. The characters and stories were good, its just that they released it the same year as Tales of Vesperia, plus the reputation from the last 2 DS games, and possibly the lack of 3D.

I just say: yes, yes, yes!

I am personally not a fan of this whole "re-imagination" thing. I actually think it's a pretty bad idea. However, I will be more inclined to like it if the re-imagined games come Stateside. And if some of them are for 3DS (since, lets face it, the PS Vita is awful).
