Not one, not two, but three new Tales games have been revealed care of V-Jump magazine in Japan, and all three of them are being planned for release later this year (or at least in Japan). Well, not all of them are entirely new, but regardless, it's still new for that specific platform...
Now a former Xbox 360 exclusive, Tales of Vesperia has finally been announced for the PS3. Ever since before, Vesperia's only been released for the 360, with Namco Bandai often saying that other versions on other platforms was always a possibility. Today, that possibility becomes official. What's more is that the PS3 version gets an extra playable character called Patty Fleur.
Moving on to other new tales now - err, Tales, rather - a new PSP Tales is being planned also for this year. As it's being described, it looks like Namco Bandai's very own version of Dissidia.
This new Tales of VS takes various Tales characters across the franchise into an all-out brawl. Yeah, think Radiant Mythology, except it's more of a fighting game (with RPG elements). It's going to have multiplayer support for four people - as opposed to Dissidia's two - and so far has the following characters confirmed:
And if that's not enough, there's also the new Wii Tales game called Tales of Graces. Not much info was revealed for Graces other than it being the first main-line Tales games to hit the waggler's console. The story revolves around a guy who seems to have lost someone dear and vows to protect the people he loves (yeah, that'd be Formulaic Plot Outline #4).
