Namco has opened the official website for the first Tales game to appear on Nintendo's DS handheld. Titled Tales of the Tempest, the game will feature a 15-year old protagonist by the name of Caius Qualls. Caius is living together with his foster father in a remote village. One day a soldier from the Imperial Guard hands him a crystal, which results in a grotesque creature named Spot to attack the village. Together with his stepfather Caius fights the Spot. However because Caius' stepfather is a beastman, the other villagers do not help them. Hence Caius together with his stepfather and his childhood friend Lupia decides to escape from the village. In the middle of their retreat, priest soldiers begin to go after them. During the ensuing hunt, Caius gets seperated from his stepfather and after hearing that his real father might still be alive, embarks on a journey to solve the mystery surrounding his birth.
Tales of the Tempest will be available in Japan sometime next year.
