Should've expected that with a JRPG developer!

Wait, Namco got Tales of Vesperia on 360 while Atlus was still fooling around with PS2. Well, I guess that series is in more of a MegaTen-esque state than somewhere a rung under FF/DQ.

Well, given that the PS4 isn't even out in Japan... it's a valid decision.
It's not like Tales games are pushing the graphical limit anyway.

...

(Kinda why I hope they stick to cel-shading)

EDIT:  I think it still may be Vesperia related.  Between the book, the "tov" in the web code, that back in 2009 (yeah, I know, don't say it) Namdai said they'd be interested in a Vesp sequel, and it'd save money in the resource department.

But maybe it's a Phantasia-to-Symphonia kind of sequel

My translation:

In a far off age of myths, if the world was covered in darkness light would be restored from somewhere.

Even as ages passed, every time the world was thrown into chaos there was a legend that as handed down which offered people hope for salvation.

It is said that each time priests would appeared and dispel the darkness.

But the priests disappeared when peace arrived......where did they go......nobody knew the answer to that question.

It sounds like the catholic retelling of Zelda.

I should note that I wasn't totally sure how to translate 導師.  My Japanese-English dictionary just lists it as "officiating monk" but that sounded kind of funny to me so I looked it up in an actual Japanese-Japanese dictionary.  The word comes from Buddhism but I don't think it's use is necessarily specific to Buddhism.  Basically it's just somebody who presides over religious ceremonies, funerals, etc.

Knowing absolutely nothing about the religion of this universe, but given that Tales settings don't usually have a lot of eastern religious influences I was just, whatever, priest sounds fine.  But that was me.

And this is why translating even simple things can sometimes be a pain in the ass...

Not at all, I was impressed that you did it so quickly.  And thanks, I'm sure you know I'm a big sucker for the Tales series.

So The Legend of Vicar then?

As I was reading Kevadu's translation, all I heard in my head was the opening theme to Wind Waker.

I'm stealing Dice's thunder here, but Zestiria was announced.

Currently taking bets on how many Zesty puns are going to go around the Internet this week.

http://www.siliconera.com/2013/12/12/tales-zestiria-announced-playstation-3/

The link has some pictures of the characters.  The male character seems to be Slay and the female Alicia.

Belated Edit:  Information on the story:

All of this was so expected at this point I have a hard time being excited for it.  Though I'm not entirely sure what they could have said that would have excited me...maybe they could have shown some actual gameplay.

Though having four character designers working on the game is certainly a first.  They seem to want this one to be a big one.

Honestly, the two designs shown so far don't really appeal to me, but I'll withhold judgement until I see more. I did feel that Xillia ended up clashing and it only had 2 designers.  Xillia 2 seemed to mesh a bit better.

It seems to be playing a bit with its own tropes though.  If that female is the main heroine, she seems to be a good deal more physical-based, because of the spear and armor, than the male, who appears like more of a researcher?

I'm a bit curious about the dragon in the logo, too.

Thanks Cyril -- I was too tired to NOT snooze in

http://youtu.be/mizMba7FAvE

Seems to star Jude and Leia 2.0 (the Dragoneers), slapped together with Skyward Sword's Link while the lady-lead maybe got hit by a Valkyrie Profile bug.. 
Names: Slay (groan) and Alicia.




Apparently like Graces battle system (yay!)



World map looks like a significant improvement over Xillia...so far.

And I agree, we've (sort-of) counted down twice so I'm not really EXPLODIN' EXCITEMENT at the moment.  But pretty happy nonetheless. :)

Tell that to Legendia.

Also the dragon seems to be a plot point of some kind so I doubt they'll go into it's beef.
