it looks nice, and the seiyu looks decent too, gonna try it when it comes out ^^

arcadeplayer987 2007-12-31 06:20

looks good, too bad I don't have an xbox 360

krisslanza 2007-12-31 15:08

Wow... That seiyuu in the opening is so FAMILIAR. Reminds me of... Himeko? Hmmm... Very nice though.

GomuBlade 2007-12-31 17:01

Looks interesting. Just hope it takes a trip outside of Japan too.

fict_ticious 2007-12-31 17:02

Delicious.

I would play it if it were on the Nintendo Wii. <_<

Bonta Kun 2008-01-02 11:44

oooh not bad at all, will deff try this out. I haven't come across a decent 3rd gen RPG yet that I like maybe this could do the trick:p

Aaron15 2008-01-11 17:53

it could be for the Ps3

bungoman 2008-01-12 05:21

Ooooooo please let this be for the 360. I just got one for Christmas and this would make it even better than it already has been.

Strange news on famitsu.com

Just forget what i posted, famitsu were refering to an interview on a foreign magazine (play magazine?). Confirmed is that it is being done by Team Symphonia.

Ice Climbers 2008-02-22 11:25

So Team Symphonia is working on both this and ToS 2?

Too bad I dont have a 360 or a Ps3,so..

My guest only a fraction of Team Symphonia is working on the Wii title. In the interview it was ask, if it would be ported over to the PS3, and the producer and director responded that it might happend, but they want to concentrate on finishing the game. Funnily it was said that the TOV is primarly targeted to the west, maybe that is why it is being developed on the 360. I reckon the sales of Trusty Bell port will be a factor how fast it gets ported over to the ps3.

With the price dropping for both consoles, just wait until the game gets released.

Excerpt from an Interview in Regards to Tales of Vesperia via Play Magazine.

Interview
Yosh[ito] Higuchi, Director and Tsutomu Gouda, Producer
Interview by Nick Des Barres & Dai Kohama / Transcribed by Dai Kohama
Translated by Nick Des Barres

I wondered if you were aiming directly at the Western markets.
YH: No, it's not like that at all-we're not that bigheaded yet (laughs). Like always, I think that our Japanese fans understand Tales the best. But does that mean Tales can't succeed in the West? Of course not-Symphonia proved that there are plenty of Western gamers who appreciate the very Japanese sense Tales has. Our goal is to make this game for everyone who appreciates that sort of aesthetic, so, no we're not aiming directly at the Western market.

We love the 360, but it hasn't been doing very well in Japan.
YH: I suppose you want to ask, "why 360?" (laughs) We had actually begun research into HD hardware while still working on Abyss. When Abyss was finished, it was very well-received, and we had to decide where we were going next. There were many possibilities-at the time, we could certainly have done another game on PS2. But we felt there was a need to go HD. Logic would dictate we'd have to do it eventually, so why not now? That left two choices. When we started this project, the 360 had the more complete development environment.

Was that the only reason?
YH: Well, even thought the West isn't our main target, I knew we had to cater to our overseas fans as well, so that's another reason. But this doesn't mean we're not going to work on PS3 or other hardware-just that Tales is coming to the 360 first.

Can you see Vesperia getting ported to PS3 some time in the future, like Eternal Sonata?
YH: Yes, I won't deny the possibility. But we're not thinking about it yet-there are so many other things to concentrate on first.

Nah, he said it was mostly due to the 360 at the time having the more complete development kit between the 2. Kind of the same reason why Project Aces chose the 360 as the platform to release AC6 on first, the whole XBL thing.

Anyway, hopefully the game delivers when they release it later in the year(if that almost 60% complete rumor ends up being true).

Sirth 2008-02-22 16:54

In regards to the west, he also mentions the fact that Vesperia would mark NA's 10th Tales anniversary, with the original Destiny back in 1998. Like how Abyss marked their 10th anniversary. I'm wondering if we'll get a Cless logo, or a Stahn one, on it.

I'm still getting the impression that Tales fan = Symphonia Fan/ Nintendo fan here in the west, though. Most of the comments I see are all, "EW, 360!? No way, won't buy that crap. Nothing I want."

kujoe 2008-02-22 17:10

This is one of the games that get me excited about having a 360... and they're not that many. But with the possibility of a later PS3 port, I'll have to hold on and wait for further info if such a thing is even going to happen. No doubt a later version will have extras and added content the first version won't have.

The only problem is, if the PS3 version (if it becomes ported) will be released in the West as well. I mean, not that I'm particularly looking forward to it, but where's that Eternal Sonata, Namco? Like the PS2 version of Tales of Symphonia, this (and ES) just might not cross over to this side of the world, like, ever. Well, at least if I really wanted a PS3 version, I can always import it.

Hm? It isn't a rumour, it's actually in the interview. You can read the full thing here.

Uh, it's not even out in Japan yet. At least wait until a while after it's out there before deciding the PS3 version won't get an international release. It most likely will.

But there isn't. Until the 360 starts building up a collection of RPGs that would actually justify buying the console, people won't be happy about Vesperia coming out on it. You could say the PS3 doesn't fit that description either, and I'd agree with you, but the general understandable view is it's more likely to happen eventually because Japan prefers the PS3 to the 360 (you only have to look at the 360's sales to see that), and quality RPGs take time to make. The only quality titles exclusive to the 360 I would actually buy are Infinite Undiscovery (which isn't out yet, of course) and maybe, just maybe, Lost Odyssey (but I'm not fully convinced on that one). Eternal Sonata is coming out on the PS3, Vesperia most likely will come out on the PS3 too. If the timed exclusives thing, or just more 360 exclusives, keeps going though more people will buy one. You get console fanboys everywhere, sure, but most people just want to buy the console they'll get the most financial worth out of - and with the Xbox's complete lack of quality RPG titles compared to the PS2, people like me just don't want to buy one for only a game or two.

And you know the other thing that'd make more people buy a 360? If they didn't have such a disgustingly high failure rate. I mean one of Microsoft's own units redringed at GDC, what kind of an impression does that send to potential buyers?

Looks Amazingly Awesome!
I love the Tales of Series, they're so great, and that looks like another one that will not let the franchise down in reputation. ^_^

^^ i actually didn't read the interview.
Nevertheless the decision to work on the 360 first instead of the ps3 kind of bothers me, if they do decide to port it over. By now most devs should know it is easier to port a game from the ps3 to 360, than from the 360 to ps3. But then again, when the game is finally released on the market, i reckon the 360 will probably be the cheapest console, from this generation, available. So just wait and see i guess.
