Bandai Namco talks about the Tales franchise, says they're planning remasters/remakes based on fan requests

This week's Famitsu features an interview with Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition producer Yusuke Tomizawa and original version chief director Yoshito Higuchi. One of the biggest details we learn is that Tomizawa is now the producer for Tales of series console games. You can get the other tidbits from the interview below.

- they are planning Tales of series remasters and remakes based on fan requests
- Tomizawa is handling the new title announced at Tales of Festival 201
- the team is focusing on putting out a Tales game on consoles first, which is something they haven't done in awhile
- Tomizawa has a new development structure for Tales games, but he cannot reveal details.
- development is being handled by Bandai Namco Studio with reliable staff members who built up the series


Bringing Tales of Symphonia back to a Nintendo system in the form of Chronicle would be an obvious choice.

A Tales of Phantasia that combines everything from the PSX and GBA versions of the game? Well, I can at least have some hope for that now

Tales of Symphonia and Tales of the Abyss for Remasters

Tales of Legendia could use a remake, I think.

Tales of Phantasia and anything else before Symphonia could use a remake

and then just port everything else to Switch

How about bring us Tales of Innocence R, Tales of Graces F, everything else, Tales of Phantasia, and Tales of World those Mystery Dungeonish games where it combines all Protagonists!
