Tales Games To Be Open World?

Posted on by Ryan

In a recent interview with Bandai Namco, Producer of the Tales Series Hideo Baba was asked the question on if he ever had interests of making an open world RPG similar to Elder Scrolls and Fallout. While he does still want to focus on JRPGs, Baba has expressed interest in working on a open world fantasy game. Baba had this to say…

 

“The Tales of franchise has a very long history and I really want to keep developing this kind of JRPG to keep the history going, but outside of the Tales of series, I’d like to try and make an open-world fantasy game similar to Dragon’s Dogma or Skyrim in the future, something brand new.”

 

Baba was also asked the question of if the Tales series will ever be released on Playstation or Xbox…

 

“I believe the next-gen consoles such as PlayStation 4 or Xbox One have big improved potential, but I really don’t want to focus on improved graphics when considering the future of the Tales of series. The Tales of series focuses on the characters and the storylines. Of course, we can utilize the improved graphics, but we really want to focus on improved storyline and more interesting characters. I really want to consider first the unique characters and world of the game and not necessarily how to utilize new and improved graphics.”
