New Tales Titles For The Xbox 360 & Wii

Namco Bandai has announced today that for the 10th anniversary of the Tales franchise Tales of Vesperia for the Xbox 360 and Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World will release later this year in North America.

Tales of Vesperia will be the first title to debut on the Xbox 360. Vesperia is set in a world dependent on an mysterious ancient technology known as blastia and follows former knight Yuri as he delves into a shadowy plot to use these magical devices to control civilization, or destroy it.

Vesperia will use an all-new graphics engine and character designs by manga artist Kosuke Fujishima who work on titles Ah! My Goddess and Sakura Taisen. They promise high-quality HD character models and environments that are indistinguishable from traditional cel-based anime.

The game real-time combat system will reappear with players do battle in massive battlefields, learn new special attacks based on individual weapons and new finishing blows.

Players will obtain rare items by completing various battle objectives in mission-based battles. You can also collect materials by executing finishing moves to get unique equipment for their characters.

Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World is the sequel to Gamecube title Tales of Symphonia for the Wii. This time you control two new heroes Emil Castagnier and Marta Lualdi as they go on a journey to discover why their world has fallen apart. During their quest you cross paths with the original cast of the Gamecube title including Lloyd and Colette.

A new monster recruitment feature will be presented where you can capture over 200 monsters and train them to fight in battles. You can level up your monsters and have them evolve into new forms.

An updated real-time battle lets players roam the battlefield freely, execute unison attacks and use the new elemental alignment system.

This is a good way to celebrate 10 years of Tales series. Both Tales games will release this year and both of them sound very good. Wii and Xbox 360 owners look out for these two, they shouldn’t let you down.
