... because if that is the case, artificial they sure are trying to keep it under wraps.
During the Machi Asobi Vol. 10 event last May 3rd, Tales of Series Producer Hideo Baba was asked "Will we be getting info on the next Tales game during Tales of Festival 2013?"
To which Baba-san simply replied: "I wonder? I don't know." with a smile on his face.
Tickets for the upcoming Tales of Festival 2013 are also almost sold out, according to Baba-san. There are still a few left, though. At the eve of the Festival, there will also be an event around the Yokohama Arena. This is in cooperation with ufotable.
The remainder of the event was then given to cover God Eater 2.
With Tales of Hearts R and Tales of Xillia 2 already out for quite a while and with Tales of Xillia almost here in the West, I'm surprised that we haven't heard much about a new game yet. They usually announce it quite fast.
