Tales Series Sells Well On Steam, Producer Says; Going Multiplatform Is The Goal
Bandai Namco's Tales series started on a Nintendo console with Tales of Phantasia, but it eventually found a profitable home on Sony consoles, with many of the best entries in the series getting released on PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3. It seems like, however, that the series can become quite successful on PC as well.
Speaking with Dengeki PlayStation, Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition producer Yusuke Tomizawa confirmed that Tales games are selling very well on Steam. He also added that Tales of Vesperia DE is launching on all platforms as the goal is to make the series go fully multiplatform.
Yusuke Tomizawa also spoke about the future of the series, saying that he wants to consider how much of the series should be changed without completely altering the feature that are staples.
Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition launches next month on PC and consoles. The game will come with features that were exclusive to the PlayStation 3 release, which only launched in Japan, such as a new character called Patty, fully playable Flynn, new dungeons, new story scenes and more.
