    Dang, they couldn't even reveal what the Switch game is? I'll take the optimistic route and say that that might mean that the Switch game will be a brand new game rather than a port. Off to wait for TGS then.

    • Simon Low

      Aww.... I was hoping for a Tales of the Abyss Remaster/Remake. XD

      • InfinityAge11

        If its a remake then that still seems possible! That would be a big enough deal with enough work needing to go into it that they had to hold off longer on announcing it.

      • Arn

        You can count on another Phantasia remake but not Abyss. lol

        • Simon Low

          Tales of Phantasia already have a shit tons of remake/ports. SNES, GBA, PSX, PSP.
          Its newest remake is "Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon X" (PSP). It is a two-in-one game, which includes Phantasia with a improved battle system, plus one more new playable character - Rondoline E. Effenberg. And also Narikiri Dungeon, which is Phantasia's spin-off sequel. Too bad it never got a Western release.

          • Arn

            ...I know all about this. 😡

            What I'm saying that it's more likely for them to remake Phantasia AGAIN than remake another Abyss, and to be honest I'd rather have Legendia remade with house quality of course.

    • Giordan

      maybe it's still in development and they aren't ready to show it off just yet.

  • Arn

    Oh well, gotta wait 'til TGS then, guess the mobile games are doing good too with all the promotions.

    My hopes were for ports of the PS3 games somwhere along the line.

  • GraysonXIV

    I can't believe they didn't even tell us what the Switch title was >.>
    Can Nintendo let us know at E3 please

    • Giordan

      they probably aren't ready to show it off yet.

      • GraysonXIV

        I'm sure they have concept art ready to go, and the Switch title is probably just a port anyways. It's baffling we didn't even get a mention of the Switch title...

        • Giordan

          Maybe they're waiting till TGS?

          • GraysonXIV

            Yeah, that's the most likely scenario now. Which is kind of wild given that the game is supposed to be out by end of March on Switch. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

          • Arn

            It's most likely ports, I doubt they will make another risk move like they did with Graces back on Wii.

          • GraysonXIV

            I don't doubt that it's a port, which makes it all the more confusing why there was no announcement.

          • Giordan

            they must have something big planned

  • Delphinou

    Well... this is disappointing.

  • Koncayto

    I wanted so much more out of this ; ;

  • toling54

    I hope it is not exclusive for switch :v
