Tales producer Hideo Baba has revealed that he hasn’t any plans to bring the popular JRPG series to Nintendo’s latest console, Wii U. Baba also said that he has no plans to bring the Tales series to PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. Baba says his policy is to release Tales titles to the console which the fans want to play on. Recent Tales titles have appeared on the PlayStation 3 and that doesn’t look set to change anytime soon.

 “Same as the Xbox One and PS4, I don’t have any plans to release titles for the Wii U.”

  1. Certain Japanese devs (although awesome) have their heads shoved right up their ass.

    PES is on PSP , but not on 3DS or Vita ? lol what ? The PSP is long dead in the west.

    • Typical Sonyan extremists…

      They always support extinct things or things that are about to become extinct…

      But aslong as the Xbots don’t get it, I don’t really care what the Sonyans are up to…

      Although we do know since they are just copying our culture in a misguided erronous way…

  2. ….how can you have no plans for any of the 3 next generation systems?
    “Sir, the console generation is about to end”
    “K”
    “….erm, any plans for the next gen systems?”
    “Nah”
    “B-but how will we make money”
    “We?”

  3. Loosely translated it means that they cannot afford to make game so all those consoles. That’s fine by me. It’s rough out here.

  4. Wow, so he’s steering clear of next-gen altogether for the time being?
    That’s…..I don’t know whether to call him brave, admirable, or foolish, so I’m going to go with a mix of the three.
    Well, here’s hoping he doesn’t take long to change his mind and make some plans, for the Wii U if nothing else.

  7. Didn’t the same guy just say that they were looking at Wii U when sales pick up? And if that’s the case why aren’t they making for the 3DS!? It’s already outsold the PS3 so surely more sales are to be had on that.

    This same guy also said last week that Tales of Symphonia HD isn’t gonna happen….2 days later….

    • The 3DS has a slew of giant IPs launching throughout 2013, 2014 also but not yet aggressive as this year. It’s better the wait until Mario and Luigi dream team, Bravely default, Pokemon X and Y, and the beautiful monster hunter 4 release. Tales would have no chance against those marvels. Let us wait patiently :).

  8. Let me add some knowledge here. He has stated that where there are the most fans the tales games shall go. At the moment the PS3 is the leading market for tales. MiiVerse is your tool Nintendoans. Let your voices be heard.

    The Wii U is in the best place and position, with a 4 million about install base we shall increase that as soon as Nintendo’s IPs start arriving here soon. So smile and be patient :).

  9. Baba also said he didn’t know anything about ToS HD on PS3. if the Wii U gets a large enough install base Namco will do it. they’ve said as much. write Namco, maybe they’ll port Vesperia or Xilla.

  10. No problem. I still own the original copies. The Tales series is all over the place. It’s foolish to think the franchise is bound to one platform.

  11. Okay, sorry, I just have to say one thing that bugs me about the picture on this article… the children (at least I ASSUME they’re children) are just drawn like scaled-down adults. They have adult proportions, they’re just… smaller. Sticks out like a sore thumb to me.
