We are proud to announce that we are starting a new project, the most anticipated of the portable Tales games, Tales of the Tempest!
In the wake of the Japanese release of Tales of Hearts: Reimagination, I came to realize that since ToHR is such a definitive version of Tales of Hearts, with a revamped storyline and impeccable characterization that absolutely blow away the original game in every regard and definitely don’t create gaping plot holes or ruin previously coherent and epic scenes, there is relatively little interest in the original game. So the Tales of Hearts: Translator’s Cut project will continue, but it will be on the back burner, since we now have a new project that we know you Tales fans around the world will be much more excited about: Tales of the Tempest.
Tales of the Tempest is a fresh and modern retelling of the story of the Little Red Riding Hood. Our protagonist, Rubia Natwick, is a boring flower girl picking flowers in her overcast countryside village of Fern when suddenly, a new boy shows up in town–Caius Qualls. He has stunningly good looks and simple yet expensive-looking designer clothes. At first, Rubia and Caius merely trade fleeting glances, but as time goes on, Caius fixes her with lingering stares and professes that she “smells delicious” and that he stays away because he “can’t control himself around her”. Naturally, this leads to Rubia falling head over heels in love with him. This all comes to a head one fine day when the clouds part and sunlight strikes the boy directly, revealing to all his horrible secret–he is a furry. Now with Inquisitors sent by the Church on their trail, Caius and Rubia must flee from those who would seek to tear apart their forbidden union, joined in their quest by a hot ninja chick with a sword, her also-sparkling furry boyfriend, and a blonde.
As you can see, I am using my favorite party, the stunningly attractive furry and the two hot chicks who are into furries. … Actually, when it’s put like that, I have no idea why this would be my favorite party. Maybe I should just use the blonde chick exclusively.
As an aside, I think this is one of the reasons this game is so good:
This guy. This damn guy. He is literally everywhere. Your village just burned down and you are fleeing through the dark forest? Welcome, we sell various items here. The entire Church is on high alert and no one is to get in or out? Shoot, I guess we need to sneak out the–Whoa how the hell did you get here? You’ve entered the gaping maw of a black hole to confront the final boss, protected only by the Goddess Atamoni’s holy magicks that weave a barrier of pure entropy to prevent you from getting torn asunder by the superluminal chaos flux? Welcome, we sell various items here.
Stay tuned for more exciting Tales of the Tempest updates! For those of you who for some reason still want to play the original and clearly inferior version of Tales of Hearts in English, don’t worry, we’ll resume work on Hearts once Tempest is finished. Plus there are ongoing efforts to bring you English Tales from Phantasian Productions, Absolute Zero, the Tales of Graces fantranslation team, and some guys named Nancom or something, so keep your eyes peeled!
