They were discussing what kind of person the Shepherd could be like. AND THEN.

The teaser site for the next mothership entry in the Tales series has closed, and now a countdown site counting down to the announcement of the series’ 20th anniversary title has begun.

Next Thursday, December 12 at 19:00 Japan time, the title will be announced in a live broadcast on Nico Nico.

The Tales series first launched in 1995 with Tales of Phantasia. Assuming the 20th anniversary title will release during the series’ 20th anniversary year, it might be safe to expect this new game in 2015.
