And here I was wondering recently when we might hear about the next Tales game, so this is interesting to see.

On the names, they are all rather odd though that's not exactly nothing new. Zestoria is the one I like the most out of that bunch though. Perhaps one is also a 3DS title or another Vita one?

While I suppose it is possible, they usually trademark three at once and only use one. Two ToC's in this list also suggests this are alternate names for the same game

I expected Tempest R to be announced before we got another new mainline game, considering the timing of the other announcements and releases for the other two R titles...

Watch this turn out to be Tempest rebranded lol

Tempest R still might happen first.

This is speculation, but I don't remember trademark leaks before ToIR, ToHR, ToSU, and ToX2 were announced. If the game contains the name of an existing title, maybe the old trademark covers it?

I'm really not sure about that, but the pattern is striking.

I vote for Zestoria (it has the traditional Tales -ia ending!), but I think Catastora will win.


Here are some previous Tales trademarks:


-Tales of Justice
*Tales of Rebirth
-Tales of Honesty

-Tales of Harmonia
*Tales of the Abyss
-Tales of Mirage

*Tales of the Tempest
-Tales of Doom Sign
-Tales of Two Faiths
-Tales of Howling

*Tales of Innocence
-Tales of the Innocent
-Tales of the Manes

-Tales of Valoria
-Tales of Strife
*Tales of Vesperia
(Applicable NeoGAF thread here)

*Tales of Hearts
-Tales of the Nexus
-Tales of the Genesis

-Tales of Floweria
*Tales of Gracia
-Tales of Unitia

-Tales of Floria
-Tales of Startear
-Tales of Blessia
(Note: These were trademarked days after the last three. Floria and Floweria have the same Japanese lettering, too. None of these were ever used, so it's possible these were also for Graces.)

-Tales of Faithus
*Tales of Xillia (plus two Japanese variants on the word "Xillia")
-Tales of Zestus
(Note: I don't know the order they appeared.)

And now...
-Tales of Zestoria
-Tales of Creales
-Tales of Catastora



(Special thanks to this post for most of the trademarks.)

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.
WTF am I reading...

Alright, PS3's 2014 Tales game, here we come! Which we'll probably get in March 2015. Nice.

Now to figure out what ever weird ass logic they're using for these titles again
 
This game is actually just another Tales of Phantasia port in disguise. Watch.
And we still won't get it localized and the only version of Phantasia English speakers ever get to play officially is the GBA version. Bwhahaha.

Abyss refers to the Qliphoth.

Graces...IDK. The battle system sure is graceful though...

Symphonia - The mana flow of the planets is like the rising and falling of a symphony.
Don't forget that in Symphonia
the two planets combine and come together at the end like a symphony.


Tales of the Tempest's possible names including "Doom Sign" is pretty hilarious in retrospect now that I think about it.

Tales of Castratia would be a fitting title for this garbage series.
Ouch.

Anyway, they all sound awful, but I'd go with Zestoria. Creales sounds odd to pronounce and Catastora sounds like castration. Tales of Neutering, no thank you.
