No more superior battles then? Or is it a gamble if the next game will have Symphonia or Destiny combat systems? :(
The team itself is gone, but the person who designed their battle systems is still there I believe. Hopefully this is one he was working on.

They should consider Tales of Localifaztia ;)


Jokes aside I'm stoked, I hope they reveal it at TGS.

I didn't realize fantasy words needed to be run by English speakers first.
Most previous Tales of games had a recognizable base word. Graces, Hearts, Destiny, Symphonia, Innocence, Phantasia, etc. Recently they've been using proper nouns as titles, Xillia and Vesperia for example.

I dunno, seems like a trend is appearing.

Who knows
Vesper is a word with a ton of meanings IIRC, one of which is an evening star. Xillia is...I can't even BS something plausible. Personally, I want Tales of Bruschetta.

Anyway, looks like the Tales cycle hath commenced. My interest now is: PS3 or PS4? I expect PS3 but await confirmation

What does Xillia and Vesperia even mean in English?
In the context of the game, Vesperia is "the brightest star in the sky".

And Xillia is apparently an offshoot of Xillion which is a play on Zillion which means "countless" and the letter "X" being used to represent "the unknown"... so countless unknown things? I dunno where Baba gets this, tbh.

If they do Catastoria instead of Catastora, I can see that sounding good. :x

They always come in threes!

Tales of the Doom Sign was one of Tempest's, Tales of Harmonia was one of Abyss's, I think Tales of Nexus was one of Vesperia's, etc.

question is when we will hear about this

Famitsu? TGS? Jump Festa?
Usually they announce the game 3-4 months after the trademark is made. So they might announce it sometime around Symphonia's release in Japan in October.

What does Xillia and Vesperia even mean in English?
Xillia is about zillion or something like that, combined the X (IIRC it has implications of "cross" or the unknown). It was dumb.

Vesperia is the name of a star in the game world and also references the word/name Vesper.

On Xillia's name...

According to producer Baba, the name Xillia arranged in English expresses the word “Xillion” which in turn means “countless.” For our case, “Xillion” is a play on words of “Zillion”. The letter X signifies the meaning of the unknown, or “crossing.” One’s life can accumulate with countless things, good or bad.

Baba said Xillia was derived from Xillion (Zillion), for countless.

Edit - beaten like a Zesty Crepe

I like the name that has a cat in it, and that's the only reason why. They all sound way off the wall. :p

PS4 Tales should happen when Final Fantasy XV releases. Maybe they will release HD version for PS4 but I doubt it.

Abyss refers to the Qliphoth.
Ok, that I can understand.

Graces...IDK. The battle system sure is graceful though...
Pfft, you kidding? I'd hardly call a fast, action-filled, combo-heavy battle system to be graceful in any way. I'd say it's more like the grace of the flowers or something like that in the game.

Symphonia - The mana flow of the planets is like the rising and falling of a symphony.
That's a pretty weird thing to title your game on. I mean, it's part of the world-building aspect yeah, but I'm pretty sure it's not something essentially important to the main story.

Honestly most of the Tales game names sound silly. Phantasia and Symphonia were the best.

None of those sounds really pausible (or coherent) but hey, new Tales is always a good thing. No matter the name.

But come on Namco; try a little more. What about: Tales of Fate, Tales of Alchemy or stuff like that.

That is the biggest asspull I have ever witnessed.
I bet there's just somebody on the team that tries to come up with cool "English sounding" words and adds "-ia" at the end.
