A History of the “Tales of” Series, As Told By Hollie Bennett

on August 9, 2013 5:19 PM

In celebration of the European release of Tales of Xillia today, Hollie Bennett (also known as HollieB to fans) talks about the history of the Tales of series titles that have hit European shelves. She was responsible for bringing and promoting Namco Bandai’s Tales of series to the UK in the first place, so few would be more qualified than her to give such a detailed overview.

Through the video, we learn about the various battle systems of the series–their names and the differences between them. Bennett also discusses the main plot of each game and the Japanese artists that designed the characters. She also talks a bit about Tales of Xillia, the upcoming direct sequel, Tales of Xillia 2, and even the HD remakeĀ Tales of Symphonia Chronicles. The video has been posted below, so do give it a nice long look–it’s an interesting watch.
