Some Tales Forum goers are actually pretty pissy about the new direction to a darker Tales installment.  I can't believe.  Maybe there is no satisfying.
QED Tales fans are douches.

Thats a fact.
I can see why they're upset of course.  Rarely is one of the best-known [RPG] franchises neglected so often.  I hate how people are still off on WE'LL NEVER PLAY ONE AGAIN NEVER EVER NEVER NEVER.

"Hello Gamestop?  Can you prereserve the New Tales game yet?"

Srsly. 

Anyway, a dark sounding Tales sounds interesting.  But like Ash mentioned, "dark" and "anime cliches" rarely go well together.  I'm hopeful since I do love the gameplay, but we'll see.

Pretty much sums it up.

I'm pretty sure that better reflects reality. I mostly disregarded Vesperia in favor of Infinite Undiscovery until I saw how they were reviewed and received. Then renting Infinite Undiscovery made me REALLY play Vesperia (though it's still unfinished).

Apparently the game has a name now: Tales of Xillia

Courtesy of Tales Union:-

Quote
Last month, we uncovered new trademarks for possible names for the next Tales of title. It seems Namco Bandai has put up the sub-domain for the official website up early, and it looks like we can infer what the final name is: Tales of Xillia.

The game will utilize the contrast between light and shadow, which will lead to the game having a different art style direction than Vesperia's anime-style graphics or Graces's watercolor-style graphics (it could be more of a hand-painted or oil painting-like feel if the concept artwork is any indication). Baba stated that when he saw some of the concept artwork images running on actual hardware he was very impressed.

Right now, the sub-domain has a website The Idolmaster as placeholder, likely until they actually get ready to reveal the game next month.

It's currently unknown what else Tales of Xillia will entail besides knowing the name, as well as any chances of a Western release.

I hate how this series is sacked.  It's simple fun.  I know some people hate it, but it could be much worse.

What do you expect? A considerable portion of their fans are fucking ingrates and douchebags. Can you blame them?

Touche.
Namco's Facebook updates are especially frightening - http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/namco/posts/177457612270204  hope this works (or just look up Namco Games' "comments" to every post they make).

To their defense, fans have been ballbagged often - only half of the titles have made it over here (think of fan reactions if they didn't announce an FF game)... and no, I'm not talking those shitty spinoffs.

Referring to the new Tales of Grace F video in the news (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4ZV7N_DARk)
I want to buy this game now, the cuteness at the end with the girl disguised as Hatsune Miku convinced me =P

I wanna cry, knowing this game won't make it over. The battle system looks like it's so much fun.

Does anyone know how much voice acting there is in Graces F?  Since my kanji skills suck that significantly affects importability for me.

That's why I'm not touching it.  A shame since the "Lets Play" vids look great.  I got Vesperia PS3, but I atleast played the X360 and knew what to do (furthermore, skills were easy to read; things read like "ma-ji-ku~a-pu" [magic up], so at least you don't have to learn it the hard way).

I made it through Vesperia PS3 (without ever having played the 360 version) pretty well, but other than conversations with random townspeople every line of dialogue is voiced in that game.  It really helped.

Actually, I'm kind of in the mood for tackling another RPG in Japanese.  It's good practice.  But it's important to pick the right one.
