I think you got it wrong. It's alternate outfits for Cloud and Sephiroth, some information on Shantotto, and the EX-Modes for ExDeath, Bartz, Zidane, and Kuja. It also has an interview confirming XII representation and lack of any XIII one.

Did Famitsu reveal a rumored final playable mobile suit this week?

Bandai wasn't kidding when they said the PSP would be the new console for Gundam titles. I'm surprised we haven't seen a PSP port of Gundam Musou yet.

Such an odd choice of platforms.

What exactly is odd about it? 360/PS3 is automatic. So you think the PS2 version is odd? It's probably the system with the biggest Gundam game fanbase.

I think he found it odd becuase of the lack of a Wii version.

Straight 8s for Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. Not bad! What is bad is its chances of getting an AU release...

Actually, those scores are suspiciously low considering the feedback we've been getting from people who've played it.

Capcom moneyhatting reviewers to score TvC low to protect SF4 hype train CONFIRMED!!

Can't find the scan but this is so totally expected, all Giren no Yabou games get a revision. Well the PS2 port not that much expected since they didn't port the original, like with Gundam Musou.

I found the 1up article regarding it, and well, the "cons" are quite silly.

But yeah, it scored high for a fighting game.

Wait there's supposed to be another Tales announcement? Although shouldn't their Tales event be later this month anyway? The one where they announced Vesperia at last year?

They've already had Tales Festival this year, I don't think there's anything else coming up.

The DVD pre-order bonuses with both editions of Hearts come with a trailer of the next Tales game (like when Rebirth came with a trailer for Legendia), so there'll certainly be some news in a couple of weeks although whether it's just video footage of the Wii game they announced in the summer I don't know. It wouldn't surprise me if magazine articles were planned for this week but were put back when Hearts was delayed to the 18th.

I'd love it to be a new Team Destiny game as I believe only some of their team worked on Hearts and we've just had a Team Symphonia game.

Correction.

They had a pure Tales event around summer every year (or around then). Last year, that's where they announced Dawn of the New World and Innocence. Then, they had another event at Jump Festa in December, where they announced Vesperia.

This year, I think it was at their earlier event where they announced Hearts and RM2.

At the same time, they mentioned they were making a new Mothership game for the Wii, and they actually showed a trailer at Nintendo's October conference, and we were actually lucky enough for someone to sneak in a screengrab of it.

It's highly assumed they'll hold another event at Jump Festa (which if I'm not mistaken, is on the 20th till the 21st), and there we'll finally see the new Wii Tales in full.

WOAH! I just checked out the Jump Festa website, and look at what companies are having booths!

http://www.jumpfesta.com/booth/index.html

Some examples such as Nintendo, Sega, Marvelous, Atlus, Bandai Namco, Capcom, etc! :O

Hope we'll see Sonic and the Black Knight playable for the first time, and some new Wii games from Marvelous.

Then again, the event is mostly about Anime, so it's more than likely instead, that Marvelous will just announce a new Hitman Reborn game or something. Sega has that Haruhi Wii game right?

But Nintendo?...

Edit: Apparently it pays to check their booth listings with the Translator...

Clicky.

Sega has Let's Tap, Bleach, and Phantasy Star Zero. I'm checking the others right now.

Edit: Looks like Arc Rise Fantasia is being shown.

Can stormbringer or duckroll accurately translate these so that they can confirm what I'm making out?

You can see what they have planned by clicking the logos.

Regardless, there's a small chance that they could announce something. Enough to get the hype train going. I predict Kid Icarus, Skies of Arcadia 2, No More Heroes 3, Shin Megami Tensei 4, Boob Calibur and Strider Rebirth.

Ohhhh, I forgot about Jump Festa (for some reason I always think Squenix have a monopoly on Jump Festa announcements). My bad.

What I'd REALLY like them to announce, actually, rather than a new Tales, is a European release date for Vesperia. After the abysmal PS2 port of Symphonia, the generally naff Legendia and for some reason never getting around to Abyss, I just want a positive 3D Tales experience...

Guys, I just realized that the new Tales might actually be unveiled BEFORE Jump Festa. Both preorder bonus DVDs for the ToH CG Edition and ToH Anime Edition list a "Latest Tales of... title PV" on the contents, and the ToH Blog entry from Nov or so confirms that the DVDs will carry the promo video for the the "latest Tales of title" from "a certain event". It doesn't look like they're referring to TotW RM2, so this might be the trailer from the Nintendo Conference? ToH is out on the 18th, 2 days before Jump Festa...
