Level 5 said they weren't ready to show Inazuma Eleven Break...I guess we'll see more if it next year and have it finally be released.

Dumb, but I guess they're changing it into something more than just an IE1 remake then.  They also keep insisting Nunokuni is also coming to a console, which will undoubtedly be Wii.

I'd like to see them do a Layton game personally.  Maybe not a brain teaser, but something more like a pure adventure game or dungeon crawler?

ToH sold 140k week one and legged it out to 250k. ToG'll sell more than 140k week one so it'll end up higher than ToH. I was expecting 300kish LTD, it should do that or come really close. People expecting something like 400k or more were setting their hopes up too high. Are bundles counted or not? If not then sales are higher.

lol at tres, trolling as usual. Of course they'll make a new Wii Tales if they continue to do new DS Tales. They'll make a new HD one too.

Tales of Keroro is a low-budget spin-off, and the question is where the next main entry will go.

PS3Wii, just like Sengoku BASARA 3, would be te best choice for the next one and everyone would be happy too.

 


That's not what I mean. Tempest sold <100k FW, they still made Innocence. Innocence sold 106 FW (and 76k first day) and they still made Hearts.

And no, they won't make a PS3 and Wii multiplat game. They'll make a new HD game (by Team Symphonia), and a new Wii game (by Team Destiny).

The Ninokuni console game is for ROID.

Yeah, I tend to think the teams are pretty much set at this point (Symphonia HD, Destiny Wii).  I'm pretty sure the next HD Tales is already deep in development too, and it'll be 360/PS3 day-and-date-multi knowing Namco.

I'd actually like to see a switch over

Destiny doing a HD one & Symphonia doing a Wii one

they should scrap DS/PSP ones now



All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

ROID isn't a console, and the ROID game was already announced and is a mobile spinoff (Hotroit Stories).  Level-5 keeps insisting the actual DS game is also coming to "a console", it's basically multiplatform.  Considering how spell casting is done (drawing symbols/runes), it's likely Wii.

Why? Both teams are quality so it doesn't really matter :P Actually if Team Destiny continues to innovate with the battle system (since ToG looks like the best battle system in the series yet) then I'd prefer them over Team Symphonia unless they do something more drastic with its next Tales. But I wouldn't care either way.

The thing is that Team Symphonia already made an HD game and Destiny made a Wii game so they have the foundations already ready.

Well, that's what you are hoping.

I highly doubt the next game by Team Destiny will be a Wii only game if the sales for Graces don't improve.

Innocence was already in devolopement when Tempest was released, and I think Namco blaimed Tempest itself for it's bad-sales because it was bad and the Japanese Tales of fanbase hated it.

 



Edit: @Soriku

however as shown previously in this thread, Tales games on Nintendo consoles seem to be much more front-loaded. And most Nintendo fans hold on to the "previous trends" argument, i guess using that argument ToG should sell around 140k FW.

Also i'm not defending Hanafuda, but some of the annoying people on this thread were Nintendo fans who claim that ToG will make a greater profit without backing up with data. That argument becomes really annoying sometimes and really far away from reality. I'm not saying ToG flopped, but i dont get why some people get annoyed because Vesperia outsold it and try to defend the lower sales.

Oh...just checked, it really is a spinoff.

Well, we'll see. I hope they end up making a Ninokuni for Wii too, the DS game looks gorgeous and on the Wii it would look amazing.
