We continue our RPG scan onslaught with another upcoming action title. Tales of the Tempest is Namco's first DS Tales installment, and from what we've seen a wonder for a portable: from expansive 3D worlds, interactive battles to a cast of ever-snazzy characters.
The lead role is a young boy, Caius, who lives as an adopted child in a village of Alewallah. In a typical plot, the village is attacked by a fiend who goes by the name of "Spot". No, not Spot the dog. The young boy and his father begin to fight the monster, but during the fight his father and childhood pal Rubian escape the village.
In the recent edition of Famitsu was an excellent two-page article on the upcoming Tales adventure with a batch of fresh screens.
Thanks to neo on the neoGAFforums for the scans.
