I'm excited to see this redone. It wasn't my favorite Tales by any means, but I did play the hell out of both of those games. So I am invested.
1. voiced skits would be phenomenal.
2. taking away those level caps for returning characters in the sequel would also be very lovely. Because as good as my monsters were, I would always want to use the real people.
3. I'm really hoping we get all the Collector's Edition goodies. I want those figurines!!
I'm happy with this announcement, but I was kind of hoping for a new installment announcement. THAT would have made my day. :)
