Default Tales of Link

(Not that Link~)

"Tales of Link" Coming To Smartphones In Japan This Fall of 2013 - Abyssal Chronicles - A Tales of Series Fansite

Quote:
The latest issue of Weekly Jump Magazine apparently reveals an upcoming Tales title, "Tales of Link," which will be making its way to smartphones in Japan this fall season of 2013.

The upcoming title will be featuring character designs by Daigo Okumura (Tales of Xillia 2 and Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World main characters' designer). It will have Okitomo Shiratori as the main producer, Ryuuji Oodate as the project producer (who was also the main producer of Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 3 and Tales of Innocence R, plus other games) and Hironori Naoi as the Director (director of Tales of Hearts R and Tales of the Heroes: Twin Brave).

Some of the game's characters have also been revealed already in Jump (all name romanizations are currently unofficial at the moment):

Sara ( サラ, sara)
Voiced by: Shiori Mikami
Height: 157cm
Weight: 45kg
"The essential part of someone who's just starting out! Never give up no matter what!"
- This newbie adventurer has set out of her village to pursue her goal. She met Lippi during her journey, and together, they are searching for the "Messiah" ( 救世主さま, kyuseishu-sama") together. She wears flashy attire and bloomers (like gym clothes).

Lippi ( リッピ, rippi)
Voiced by: Ai Nonaka
Height: 57cm (tail included)
Weight: Differs depending on its form
"I am certain I saw your power before. You are the Messiah, correct?"
- Lippi is a fairy that has been instructed by Leone to collect the "Seeds of Calamity." She serves the Messiah, the one who has the power to purify these Seeds. According to the source, she looks like a Mormo (from Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology) that is hairier/fuzzier and is on all fours.

Shiza ( シーザ, shiiza)
Voiced by: Masakazu Morita
Height: 185cm
Weight: 76kg
"Whether it's the power to protect, or the power to destroy - is there really a difference? They're both just violence."
- A swordsman Sara and company meet on their journey in search of the Messiah. He has a relentless sense of thought when it comes to power. According to the source, he has multiple swords on him - a great sword on his back, 3 katanas on his hips plus 2 smaller ones.

Leone ( レオーネ, reoone)
Voiced by: Aya Endo
"We will stop the Calamity no matter what. We will see to it that it will be stopped."
- A Goddess who managed to escape when the seal on the Seeds of Calamity was removed. She is holding back the budding of the seeds, and hence is unable to move. She gave Lippi power and entrusted to her the task of collecting the Seeds of Calamity.

If you'll remember, "Tales of Link" was one of the recently discovered Tales of trademarks filed by Namco Bandai Japan. They're finally making use of one of them.

We'll update this post once scans come up.

Tales of Link Teaser Site Now Open, Scans From Tales of Magazine Added - Abyssal Chronicles - A Tales of Series Fansite

Quote:


Upcoming Tales game for smartphones "Tales of Link" got its teaser site open today.

So far, nothing much on the site aside from this lovely visual art and the message "When the Calamity falls to the earth from the heavens, hope will once again be born from the earth."

Here are scans from the October issue of Tales of Magazine, thanks to lunawings from Tumblr. My mistake, the info from the previous post wasn't from Jump, but was from Tales of Magazine:





You can check our previous post for info about the characters.

Below is the game's story. Again, romanization of names are not yet official:

The world left from the legends - Riafeace ( リアフィース, riafiisu) -
A peaceful world where the gods from the heavens watch over those above ground.
But one day, that peace was destroyed.
Someone had destroyed the seal of the palace of the heavens,
The once sealed Seeds of Calamity pierced through the gods' bodies and infecting them, and the Seeds had fallen to the ground.

[Seeds of Calamity]

These were once sealed but is now causing calamity on the earth. They are the core of evil beasts. They had stored power during the time they were sealed, and managed to take away the power of the gods and fell on the earth, where they are now budding. It unavoidably threatens the peace on the ground - such as taking the form of a dragon and burning down villages, or taking the form of a human in order to deceive the people.

By chance, one goddess was able to escape with much difficulty - Leone. She plans to collect all of the Seeds and seal them once again. However, in order to prevent the Seeds all over the world from budding, Leone has to pour all of her power into the heavens, and hence cannot collect the Seeds herself. Hence, she has tasked one of the fairies that serve her: descend to the ground and locate the "Messiah" in order to seal the Seeds once again.

- And then time passed -

In a meadow where there is nothing, a fairy and a young girl suddenly appear. They are after two things: to once again seal the Seeds of Calamity that have fallen on the ground and purify this world; and to find out exactly who is behind the Seeds of Calamity falling to the ground.

And then, the fairy speaks. "The tracks that a hero has undertaken, the power of a hero engraved from the holy war, a 'reading stone.' If it is you, you can do it," it says. (translator's note: I'm sorry, I'm having a lot of trouble with this line. I really can't understand it.)

Listening to the fairy's wishes, the comrades now embark on a journey in this vast world. No one knows what awaits them at the end of their journey of purification.


I'm actually a bit confused about the prologue - in Japanese, the last three paragraphs you see above are told in a way where it's from the reader's point of view - I just edited it a bit to make it not appear like that. Now I'm not sure, but maybe you're to make your own character for this game...? Since I'm looking at logo and the main visual and though the girl does look like Sara, the guy doesn't look like Shiza at all.

So here's what I'm speculating: either you really make your own character for this game, or the guy will be revealed next time. Leaning more on the former.

The game will be available on the Japan Apple App Store and Google Play this fall 2013.

Tales of Link Battle System Info and Tales Characters Have New Art - Abyssal Chronicles - A Tales of Series Fansite

Quote:
More info about Tales of Link is out from the latest issue of Viva Tales of Magazine which clears up some of the things we've been wondering about ever since the game's announcement.

First off, the "Messiah" is actually you, the player. Tales characters are also in the game along with other Tales of Link original characters. As you'll see from the scan above, the Tales characters have been given completely new artwork for the game.

In battle, as seen in the above scan, there are a total of 9 characters in active battle at one time. There are 3 other characters at the back of the front lines that will be in rotation - hence the actual number of characters in the party is 12. Whatever the level of the player is, that will be the level of the characters.

This part isn't that clear, but making a "Friend" allows you to insert their characters in your party. As seen above, the images from left to right indicate your Leader character, your Sub Leader, and your Friend's own Leader and Sub Leader.

There are symbols at the feet of the characters called Brave Linker which I believe change from time to time or something. When you touch characters together with the same symbol (i.e. you drag on the screen), a Link is formed from this team, and when you let go, these linked characters will then attack. And if you manage to actually put 9 characters on screen to be involved in a Brave Linker, a Hi-Ougi/Mystic Arte will be performed. There's also an indicator above that says which Brave Linker marks will be coming up during the next rotation.

So far, confirmed Tales characters that will be in the game include Asbel Lhant (Tales of Graces), Senel Coolidge (Tales of Legendia), Leon Magnus (Tales of Destiny), Suzu Fujibayashi (Tales of Phantasia), Judith (Tales of Vesperia) and Colette Brunel (Tales of Symphonia, plus Sophie (Tales of Graces) for the iOS users who pre-registered for the game. A lot more characters were confirmed but it's unsure yet if they'll be in Link's main story.

Thanks to lunawings from Tumblr for the scans.
