Bringing Tales to North America - A Conundrum

DualShockers writes: "As an avid JRPG fan, I watch the news feverishly that comes out of my favorite Japanese developers. You see the results of that a lot if you keep up with the news on this site, because I feel some of these lesser-known titles could use all the press they can get, especially since some of them have the chance to come to Western regions via localization.

One of my favorite franchises, Namco-Bandai’s Tales series, has been mysteriously absent from the North American gaming scene for over two years now, which is an unusually long period of time for a gap in available franchise titles. The last game released over here was the Xbox 360 exclusive Tales of Vesperia. This is one of the games I originally bought an Xbox 360 to play (take note, Microsoft, someone outside of Japan actually buys your console to play JRPGs!). In fact, I consider it one of the best in the genre this generation."

I'm loving the look of these titles, can't wait to see these hit in USA.

I agree with the above. The games that release over in Japan always seem to interest me and its a dire shame that more of them don't make it over here. I would die to have some of the games they have. I'm not sure which company if any will end up bringing over these Tales games but I would hope it would be some one with the utmost intentions of restoring the original game's atmosphere and attitude while bringing it to us , the new audience of USA.
