    Back in September, Bandai Namco of Japan showcased a short teaser trailer for Tales of Crestoria, an upcoming mobile game based on the Tales of series of JRPGs. With the announcement of the dates for next year's Tales of Festival, Bandai Namco also took a moment to share a few more details about Tales of Crestoria, confirming it for a western release. No gameplay has been shown, but it has been stated that the game will be a turn-based RPG, as opposed to the series' typical action RPG style. The story will involve two main characters who have committed a crime, and thus received a "mark of sin", denoting their evil deed, which also gives them special powers. Character art was shown as well, giving us a look at what presumably will be the six main characters in the game. More details are set to be revealed during a broadcast in Japan on December 14.

    I was thinking they were going to do a shift in gameplay style for an actual console game like with Tales of Hearts, Tales of the Tempest, and Tales of Innocence.

    Confused why they're removing one of the best parts of the Tales series?
    Rays didn't die because of the gameplay, it died because of...well...literally everything else.
    Tying artes to a gacha is a fucking awful idea. Tying characters is so much more manageable.

    The gameplay is probably the only reason people played.

    I'm curious but not very hopeful after they've botched Rays and Link.

    As long as it's not a gacha game I'm in, might be a good occasion to get a decent RPG on mobile

    It's almost like RPG devs no longer care about the base that made them so popular. We're getting a "Diablo" mobile game and now they're giving us a Tales game on phones. This is pathetic.. Easy cash grab I guess...

    That sounds awful given the context that Tales dubs are always top notch.

    Free to play mobile gaming is not even a game so many risky requirements like paywalls,energy wait,back to stage 1 and refarming everything when you die.login requirements just to get a not so rare item in a WHOLE month.if only they can put an offline version of it like monster hunter stories.one time pay and you fully get a real gaming experience unlimited to your palm.
