Tales don't come to the Vita: Baba is honest.

Type-0 doesn't come to the Vita: Square sucks.



Around the Network

Vita sales:

Japan - 1.40 mil
Europe - 1.40 mil
NA - 1.38 mil
Rest - 0.31 mil

Yeah, the sales in the West are clearly too pathetic to grant us a game...



Wii U is a GCN 2 - I called it months before the release!

My Vita to-buy list: The Walking Dead, Persona 4 Golden, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, TearAway, Ys: Memories of Celceta, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, History: Legends of War, FIFA 13, Final Fantasy HD X, X-2, Worms Revolution Extreme, The Amazing Spiderman, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - too many no-gaemz :/

My consoles: PS2 Slim, PS3 Slim 320 GB, PSV 32 GB, Wii, DSi.

Well the Tales franchise is a lot more popular there.

And the portable entrants aren't selling godly amounts there either.

Why waste money?

Tales is much more popular in Japan and the Tales games on the Vita didn't sell much, so you can imagine how they'd sell over here...

Sadly my Vita is collecting dust with not much to play on it.



They should release them for 3DS. Is the only handheld capable of selling games at the moment.

i refuse to get a vita until a tales game is released on it :(


Huh thought you'd  have one by now to play FFX.


it's on PS3 though

i really want a vita though, persona and playing PS1 games are nearly enough to justify the price, just wished tales were on it :(

That and North America has 3x as many people as Japan.

The Tales series doesn't sell well in Japan either.  Not just the Vita titles.  The Vita titles just sold really poorly.  They'd sell way more in the US, that's for sure.

Here are sales figures of all the latest Tales games in the west and Japan.

Tales of the World Radiant Mythology.  US: 160,000  JP: 230,000
Tales of Vesperia 360.  US: 270,000  EU: 140,000  JP360: 190,000  JPPS3:  420,000  ROW: 50,000
Tales of Symphonia 2.  US:  220,000  EU: 20,000  JP: 240,000  ROW: 20,000
Tales of Graces F.  US: 200,000  EU: 80,000  JP:  420,000  ROW: 40,000

Now I didn't add Tales of Graces Wii sales like I did the Vesperia PS3 sales, but if you look at the sales numbers, the numbers in Japan aren't that much higher than everywhere else.  Radiant Mythology has a difference of 70,000.  Vesperia sold way more in the US and Europe than it did in Japan for the 360.  Then it was released for the PS3 and we didn't even get a chance to see how it would sell here, but if you look at the combined sales of the 360 version in the west it's still not far off.  Symphonia Dawn of the New World sold more in other regions than it did in Japan.  Tales of Graces F is again not too far behind.

Namco Bandai just has wild expectations for sales in the west.  The series sells poorly in Japan compared to most big name RPG franchises.  They actually have to develop the game in Japan for those poor sales.  In the west all they'd have to do is localize the games for over half the sales they've received in Japan.  I think other publishers have even displayed interest in doing so but they wouldn't have been able to get the license to publish.

There could only be two possible reasons for Namco Bandai to not publish the Tales games.

Namco Bandai hates the west.  I think this one true.  Why else would they keep localizing Gundam Musou games and not anything good?  /sarcasm.

They don't like money.  I think this is also true.
