Nintendo Media | Tales of the Tempest Screens

With Final Fantasy stealing the DS RPG spotlight, the official Japanese website for Namco's Tales of the Tempest has been updated with a selection of screens for the latest adventure, along with pre-order goodies for lucky gamers in Japan. The Tales series returns to Nintendo after many iterations on Sony's PlayStation and an adventure on the GameCube.

The game hits stores on the 26th October 2006, with pre-orders receiving a special edition Tales of the Tempest wallet and official fan book.

Looking pretty sweet, definitely will be an RPG to pick up when it hits the west. Looks a lot more fun, imo, than FFIII - but that's probably just me Smilie

I would only buy it for the wallet. But then I wouldnt spend

Woo I found the link for the screenshots on the Japanese site on the first click! Usually takes me ages to find anything interesting as I have no clue to understanding the language.

This RPG does actually look very good. I reckon I'll be wanting this when it comes out. Still looking forward to FF III so much more though. Smilie

Woooooooo!!!

OMG just looked at the pics and it looks better than Final Fantasy 3. A lesson ive learned never judge a game by it's name.

I seriously failed to see how impressive FFIII's graphics were, this on the other hand are quite impressive. Artistically and technically.

I am pretty sure Tales of games do better than FF games in Europe or am i talking out of ass


Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clichť. They were the statement and the definition."

I think you might be... but don't quote me.

This game, unlike FF, is also multi-player.
Co-op too, I think.

We have special effects and umm...stuff...

tales games are far more interesting and far less cliched than FF games. they should sell more, or have a bigger fanbase... but at least they're known to savvy gamers.

Have you ever played Tales of symphoniaSmilie
Final Fantasy games sell more in evey region although it's generally close in japan.

yes i played symphonia... love it. alternate costumes, humour, real-time battles.. all so so sooo good. i spent 50quid on action figures, collectibles. will that do? Smilie

I don't care what anyone says this is by far the best looking DS game yet. Fact.

I'm actually looking forward to this game so much that I think I might explode... Screw FF3 >_>

Well, just as long as it dosn't drag on like symphonia and makes sense it should be a decent game.

Ditto. Although...no never mind.

This games is looking fanatstic and im picking this up as soon as a western release is available.

I find hunters still looks better, but this has more style.

Well as far as I can tell, not only does it have more polygons, but the textures don't look like something that came from my rear-end >.>
