Like Final Fantasy Type-0, Tales of Xillia took the Gold Prize at last yearís PlayStation Awards. In a creatorís interview for this yearís show, Tales series director shared his thoughts on the latest PlayStation platform, PlayStation Vita.
The Tales series has already seen one PlayStation Vita title, Tales of Innocence R. Its second title, Tales of Hearts R, was confirmed this morning. Considering that, Babaís last statement might be referring to new mothership titles, but canít be entirely sure.ó Gravity Rush and wipEout 2048 are both works for PlayStation Vita. What sort of impression do you have of PS Vita right now?
Baba: Itís hardware that I want to become more and more exciting. Itís equipped with a lot of attractive functions like the touch screen and motion sensor, but you can also grasp the buttons firmly and play that way which is very important for gamers. If I were to make a game for the PS Vita, I would base it on these properties. Iíd want to make an RPG that cleverly made use of the PS Vitaís functions like the touch screen, etc.
For example, it might be fun to use the touch function to solve the puzzles in a dungeon, thatís the kinda idea. Action characteristics are one of the selling points for the Tales of series, so itíd be fairly difficult to implement the PS Vitaís touch function there. In one form or another, I want to consider the possibility of developing the series on PS Vita.
I've never played a Tales game before but it's always good to hear about support for the Vita. Surely more developers will release their games on the platform.
