Last month, Namcom Bandai announced via Shonen Jump issue, the development of a new ?Tales Of? game on the 3DS. The game will go by the name of Tales of The World: Reve Unitia. Yes, it will be similar to the previous tales games on Handhelds, where characters from different tales games goes on a crossover, building a unique story. It seems that it will have the same set of characters and world with the mobile game Tales of The World: Tactics Union. No confirmation was made, however, if it is going to be a direct port for the 3DS.
In a recent update, the publishers of the game said that Tales of the World: Reve Unitia?s story will be split into two perspectives. The two main protagonists of the game (Terun and Nahato) will have their own story arcs.
Here are some of the details about the characters that you can expect to see in the game as they were announced last month:
Returning Tales Characters
Asbel Lhant (Tales of Graces)
?We can?t turn our backs on this problem, not when it affects our own worlds as well.?
Asbel is a young swordsman who ends up helping to save Terun in a forest. Polite and serious, he?s always good about looking after others.
Lloyd Irving (Tales of Symphonia)
?What are you saying? Of course we?re all friends here!?
Lloyd is a swordsman who wields two blades and helps Asbel save Terun. While he can get fired up, Lloyd is fundamentally a nice person at heart.
Natalia L.K. Lanvaldear (Tales of the Abyss)
?It?s only natural that I?d help someone who?s hurt.?
While she comes from regal stock, Natalia is an archer who?s more than willing to take up her bow to ensure justice is served.
Yuri Lowell (Tales of Vesperia)
?I?m not one to just stand and gawk while people are out their risking their neck. I?m going to go lend them a hand.?
Yuri is deeply cynical of the world around him, choosing to operate under his own principles as a swordsman. His sheer speed will have players? heads spinning if they?re not careful.
Jade Curtis (Tales of the Abyss)
?Heh, you kids are just full of energy, aren?t you? Fine, you win. Shall I tag along then??
Jade is a mysterious man who?s highly proficient in both Artes and fighting with a spear. He tends to wear a smile, but it?s hard to read what emotions really lie underneath it.
Meredy (Tales of Eternia)
?I?m going, too! I want to help everyone else out!?
Although she?s na?ve and friendly on the outside, Meredy is a girl with a strong willpower about her. She mainly uses strong attack Artes, but is also fully capable of acting as a healer as well.
It is confirmed that the game will have full voice acting for every character of the game (at least the important ones), but the game?s official release is yet to be announced. The bigger question is, if it would actually be.
