‘Tales Of’ Series Will Never Go Realistic Says Hideo Baba
The ‘Tales Of‘ series has been one of the longest running JRPG series, aside from Final Fantasy. Since we’ve seen how the recent Final Fantasy games took a more realistic approach when it comes to story and visuals, the ‘Tales Of‘ series will not go this route.
According to Hideo Baba, Producer of the ‘Tales Of‘ series in Japan, there is no way they will make the future Tales game any more realistic than they currently are. Since changes can go either way, I believe that the Tales series should never change its approach to the core elements of JRPG’s, as that’s what they’re known for. If we look at the changes the Final Fantasy games received, the majority of its fans left disappointed.
