Affiliation Rules and Regulations

We highly welcome affiliation requests! Approved affiliates will have the link to their website in all pages of AC in the footer, as well as in the list of affiliates below within this page. As much as we welcome any affiliates for mutual links, we do have a few guidelines to follow for approval. Please read the following:

  1. We prioritize websites focusing on the Tales of Series, but we also highly welcome websites that focus on the JRPG/RPG genre of gaming, websites for other JRPG/RPG franchises or websites for general gaming. We also accept websites focusing on anime. Anything else beyond that will be subject to approval, depending on the website's coverage.
  2. We accept both websites and forums, regardless of hosting. It can be free hosting wherein your site is dependent on the free hosting's URL (i.e. yoursite.wordpress.com), we don't mind, as long as it's a fully functioning website.
  3. At the moment, we do not accept linking to social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube, etc. Your site must be an actual website.
  4. We know it's ironic, but we currently aren't accepting websites that are "works in progress" or those that aren't fully open to the public yet.
  5. Just as we will have your website linked to all pages of AC, we expect your site to have a link to AC in all of its pages as well.
  6. We don't really care about your view counts, so don't fret when you have low counts and whatnot. It doesn't matter to us whether you get 100,000 or 10 views a day - as long as your website is fully functioning and is within the guidelines above, chances are we'll accept it.

And that's it! If you would like to affiliate/exchange links with AC, then please contact us via the Contact Us page. Thank you!

    Aw yeah. I have a JP PSN account, so I can get this! Although I will have to stumble blindly through whatever menus and tutorials there are, hehe.

    Since they didn't show many info about Valvet's ship I start to assume it just will be some useless gimmick we could use only in towns (by walking next to or on it and press a button) rather than actually use the thing~
    Guess that TOV and TOTA days are really in the past now~

    Lucky for me I have a JP psn account. It will be just like the god eater 2 demo, doing stuff blindly with no idea what is happening XD

  • KuraiBaby

    So wait... I played the Japanese Demo on release. But I heard of no mention of new content bring put into the demo. So when can we access these new areas in the demo? Or is it a whole other Demo trial we have to download?
