There is no doubt that Tales of Vesperia was a popular game, (one of the most popular JRPG's on next-gen consoles actually) more so in a country like Japan, where the word "Tales" on a game pretty much guarantees a good number of sales. There is indeed a very strong following for the game, so strong so infact, that a movie called "Tales of Vesperia: The First Strike" was even made. During the the film's release, Namco Bandai's Makoto Yoshizumi let slip some good news for any fans of the game. Apparently there is strong internal desire to bring Vesperia back to consoles.During the film's premiere, Yoshizumi discussed how staff at Namco Bandai has asked him whether a Vesperia 2 is coming. To this he jokingly responds "Don't talk like a fan! We're thinking about it." It didn't end there though. Evidently they want to keep the Vesperia story going in some form or other. When discussing the film Namco Bandai's brand manager said, "I don't know when it will happen, but we'd like to show [these things] in video form." So, its apparent that they've got the story ideas and the desire to do it, all thats left is to get it done.
