The lights are on
No word on whether it will make it to North America yet, but Tales of Link is currently in development for Japanese mobile devices.
Gematsu reports that the newly announced game made an appearance in a recent issue of the Japanese Jump Magazine. The game is being directed by Hironori Naoi, who has a history directing for the Tales franchise.
Tales of Xillia (pictured above) was the last title to see release in North America. You can check out our review of that game here.

Our TakeIt's exciting to see more well-regarded RPGs coming to mobile devices. RPGs, in general, do not offer twitch gameplay, and instead focus on thoughtful strategy. For this reason, its a genre that translates well to mobile gaming. Tales is an action-RPG, so its not quite as well suited to touch-screens as something like Final Fantasy, but I think it could work. Hopefully this makes its way to North America.

Tales of Link??? Wait will Nintendo cry Copyright BS on that name?? Still pretty cool and doubly so if this title be the first for Vita...as there are a few titles that were on the DS. Still consoles be cool with.
Ugh, I'm not against games on mobile devices, especially not fun games like the Tales series but...but I would prefer a 3DS/Vita game first...
Gee Namco! can we Xbox360 owners get some more Tales games too!!!

What? they are all garbage
" For this reason, its a genre that translates well to mobile gamin"
No, just no
There have been mobile tales and they are all crap
I really wanted Innocence instead
Am I the only one who doesn't want to use my phone for gaming?
I hate touching the screen to control things, if it's not a on a dedicated gaming platform, color me uninterested.
Òh...its for mobile...oh well.
