Namco Bandai Confirms New Tales Games
PS3 and PSP titles confirmed at Tales series press conference. Tales of Unitia name denied.
Just in case you don't trust Jump leaks, Famitsu.com has confirmed all those Tales game that leaked out of Jump last week. Tales of Graces F for PlayStation 3, Tales of the World Radiant Mythology 3 for PlayStation Portable, and a brand new Tales game or PS3 are all officially official now.
The confirmation comes in Famitsu.com's flash report from a Tales series press conference that was held earlier today.
Briefly describing the three games, the site said the following:
- Tales of Graces F
- Wii's Tales of Graces, powered up for PlayStation 3. The new version includes an after-story that wasn't in the original Wii version. A release is set for Winter 2010.
- Tales of the World Radiant Mythology 3
- Set for PlayStation Portable, this will include over 80 characters from past Tales games, with Graces' Asbel appearing for the first time. A release is set for 2011.
- "Next Tales of"
- This is what Famitsu uses to refer to the new PS3 title. A number of concept images were shared at the press conference. These left the site's reporters with the impression that the new game will have a darker feel than past Tales games. Namco Bandai did not share release info.
The site promises additional details to follow.
Separate from the Famitsu story, Inside Games was Tweeting from the event. The site reported that Namco Bandai denied that the name of the new PS3 game is "Tales of Unitia," a name that has been rumored for some time now. Additionally, Namco Bandai confirmed a budget version of Tales of the World Radiant Mythology 2 for September 29 release.
