The lights are on
Tales of Link, the currently Japan exclusive mobile game in the Tales series, launched a teaser website.
Little is known about the game, other than it is coming to iOS and Android devices in Japan, and it will be free-to-play. Siliconera translated some of the text on the site and it reads, "When disaster falls from the heavens to the earth, hope also springs from the ground."
Our TakeFree-to-play always makes me grimace, especially when I consider how it could be implemented in an RPG. Tales of Vesperia on the Xbox 360 had micro-transactions through Xbox Live that allowed you to purchase money and new levels with Microsoft Points back in 2008, so the studio is certainly familiar with it. I would still like to see the game come to North America.
