A look at the pretty concept art for the next Tales game


With the reveal of Namco Bandai's latest Tales game inching closer and closer, new concept art and interviews have begun to trickle out via Famitsu. According to the site, the game will be a mothership title, though it remains to be seen which console it will be released for. Additionally, it'll take place in a more modern world, which is something of a first for the franchise; Tales of Xillia got very close in some respects but still held back retained its fantasy roots. Finally, we know that the theme of the game is "Are you prepared to destroy the world for a girl?"

While this is all information that's been floating around for a few weeks now, we do get a beautiful series of concept images, showing various locations and things that might find their way into the final game. I like the idea of a railroad system; I imagine it'd be a cool way to get around the inevitably massive game world. I'm also fascinated by the idea of exploring a huge HD Tales city. Here's to hoping they're able to actually make that a reality.

Check out the images below and let us know what you think!
