The Tales role-playing series is one of the most beloved, enduring franchises around.
The fan base is extraordinarily loyal, so maybe it makes perfect sense to release more high-definition remakes. Series producer Hideo Baba has confirmed that indeed, more high-def overhauls are headed our way in the future.
Giving the fans a chance to revisit the Tales roots, the remakes will not only improve graphics, but they'll also offer a host of various improvements. Said Baba:
"We are planning to re-release old games to other platforms in the future, because the old games have some origin and offer standard features of the Tales series. We want to give some opportunities to current fans to play the old titles."
The interesting part is that he said they will make the graphics "more accessible," which obviously implies that the visuals will require a heavy tweak in order to be appealing to modern gamers. Well, it's probably true. Anyway, don't forget that Tales of Xillia is coming to North America as well, so this is all good news for JRPG followers.
