  • Lazaros Charalai

    I can´t wait for the new Tales of Link scenario.

    • Simon Low

      Welp, I haven't even complete its current story. XD

  • Deltath Riylaan

    I just can't bring myself to care about mobile titles. I want to hear about the next real Tales console experience! I'm scared there won't be any announcements this weekend though. Makes me worry that focus will shift more to mobile and Tales as a console franchise will receive less and less support due to declining sales the last few entries.

    • Giordan

      maybe they have a title in development but they're taking their time instead of rushing it.
      Japan is pretty much a haven for the mobile market so sadly you'll have to get used to it.
      Also, Berseria probably didn't do as well due to Zestiria's rather bleak fan reception in Japan.

      • Deltath Riylaan

        If we actually got the other mobile games, I'd be more excited. They never come out here, except for Tales of Link, which is impossibly boring.

  • Mikleo

    Nice! A new main scenario for Tales of Link. I'm also hoping for the Rays to get localize, and an existing title for PC port, I'd like ToX 1&2 since I don't own a PS3. :/

    • Giordan

      get a PS3 then?

      • Mikleo

        That's so easily said. PS3 is outdated and buying it just to play 1-2 games isn't worth it. I'd rather buy a new PC or phone.

        • Giordan

          1-2 games? Dude, did you even look at its library?

          • Mikleo

            Dude, I'm only interested for Xillia 1&2. So yeah, only 2 games. That's not worth buying a console for, then just leaving it in the dark after the game completion. So again, I'd rather buy a new PC or phone.

          • Giordan

            Because it has more than Tales of Xillia and Xillia 2 on the console?
            Look up a damn game list before you judge, ok?

          • Mikleo

            Can't you even UNDERSTAND my point? I'm only INTERESTED for Xillia 1 and 2.

            I don't give a DAMN about the other games, so TRY to GET THE POINT before you bitch and telling me to get the console, ok?

          • Giordan

            you're only interested in Tales games?
            christ, expand your horizons

          • Mikleo

            Yeah, I'm only interested for Xillia1&2 in the PS3 console, other games I'm interested are on the PS4 and PC, and I have those. Same for the upcoming games, I'm only interested for those in the PS4, and PS3 is so outdated.

            So is whatever my taste your problem? If so, then that's your own mental problem and it's non of my concern.

          • Giordan

            basically you're spouting BS

          • Mikleo

            Excuse you, but you're the one spouting BS and not minding your own business. You seriously have some mental problem there.

  • donkey7.99

    Mobile, mobile, and mobile.

    Announce the HD remaster already.

    • Giordan

      Destiny Chronicles

      • Simon Low

        Yup. That, or Legendia Remake, or Abyss Remake.

        • Giordan

          Legendia is the least selling main Tales game in Japan, so I doubt a remaster will happen.

          • Simon Low

            Yeah. But I meant a REMAKE. means make the whole game from scratch again. XD

          • Giordan

            which would never happen. It'd take too long.

  • Lord Shiru

    Tales of the Rays is actually fun !
    An english version would be appreciated.
