Yusuke Tomizawa, the Producer on Tales of Arise, has suggested that Bandai Namco Games could release additional remakes and/or remasters of past Tales games in the future, as a means of further expanding the series’ fanbase outside of its native Japan.
Speaking with 4Gamer (translated by DualShockers), Tomizawa-san acknowledged fan requests for remakes and remasters in the Tales series, and as such hasn’t ruled out producing more of these down the line.
We do know a lot of fans want console games, so we’d like to keep releasing them. But console games have a limited lifespan, so we will keep doing smartphone games too. I can’t confirm anything at this stage, but I also want to satisfy fans’ requests for remakes and remasters.
Since we’ll need something to keep the Tales of brand going between Arise and the next main title release.
It’s worth noting that Tales of Luminaria wasn’t likely announced when this interview was conducted, or he probably would have named it directly.
In the meantime, Tales of Arise launches for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One on September 10, 2021. You can read our full verdict on the game here.
