    Namco Bandai hasn’t forgotten about Tales of Hearts. In fact, they took an extra step to protect the title in North America by filing a second trademark for Tales of Hearts on February 17, 2012.

    The difference between the original trademark, registered in 2008, is the new trademark applies also applies to downloadable video game software. The previous trademark covered computer game programs, coin-operated amusement games, and networked video games. Perhaps, Namco Bandai is considering to releaseTales of Hearts as a digital download?

    Tales of Hearts was originally released for the Nintendo DS in 2008 with either anime cutscenes or CG movies. The game has a number of Namco crossovers including Lloyd Irving from Tales of Symphonia, Jade from Tales of the Abyss, Klonoa, Heihachi from Tekken, and KOS-MOS from Xenosaga.

    I'd be excited, except this is Bamco.

    Though since the Tales of Hearts english translation went south, and is taking years, this would be good news if this lead to an actual localization. Maybe Tales of the Abyss did well.
    The game seems good.

    I hope it gets localized. At least the anime version, I don't care at all for the CG version they made...
    For the DS though? Or maybe it's for the Vita like they did with Innocence?

    When did it go south?
    Kaji just loves doing troll updates is all.

    I'd feel weird about an official translation of Hearts.
    A lot of work has gone into satisfying all fans for Tales games in Kaji's translation with hacked in toggle options for various localization styles.
    It'd suck to lose them.
    On the other hand, more localizations is never a bad thing and it means future titles might make it over sooner.

    Suppose we'll see how things go.

    I don't remember. I read one of his updates where he planned on changing the game and never went back, since it wasn't like a typical troll update (which were annoying too). If he was trolling, there was no "just kidding" released after it.
    Frankly I just want the stock game, not some fanmorphed and modded version in English.

    Hells Malice, I don't know how to phrase this without insulting you to some degree, so uh, you sound like a jackass.

    Anyways, if this is released, it will probably be a Vita download title, as Bamco has shown no love for Nintendo handhelds in the west.

    Yup, that was a troll update.
    All his updates are troll updates. It's his way of saying "I'm still alive and work is still being done."
    It's the stock game except bug fixed with multiple localization options depending on which Bamco style you like (or his own version if you hate all Bamco versions) with in-battle dialogue/win quotes subtitled in.

    It's easier not to follow fan translations too closely anyway. No need to hype yourself for something that might get cancelled or C&D'd.
    Just forget about it and be happily surprised if a news post on its completion is made one day.

    Well I think he's an idiot, but his translation is solid based on the first chapter. So I look forward to its completion.

    I can't put into words how stupid she was, but it was along the lines of most of her posts being drug induced man hating, and me bashing every single one of them until she snapped.

    I'm also looking forward to his translation because if Namco decides to release Tales of Hearts it will be as Tales of Hearts R for the PS Vita. I want to play the original first to notice the changes they made to the story!

    You get pretty tired of being constantly harassed for updates all the time. It's probably just his way of having fun with it.
    Trolling the fans is certainly better than blowing up on the fans and quitting, ahaha.

    It was pretty much the same with Absolute Zero, just that he didn't troll like that, but people still kept bothering him too often.
