Interview: Tales of Symphonia Chronicles/Tales of Xilia 2 and the “Tales of” Legacy with Hideo Baba
DualShockers were among legends and idols on the show floor of this year’s New York Comic Con, but few are as legendary as the “Tales of” series producer, Hideo Baba.
Speaking with Baba about some of the upcoming “Tales of” titles for the new year like the remastered Tales of Symphonia Chronicles and the new Tales of Xilia 2, Baba enlightened us on Tales’ present and future in an interview from NYCC. While bringing along a whole bunch of “Tales of” memorabilia and figurines and even the Japanese Collector’s Edition of Tales of Symphonia Chronicles, Baba talked of Namco-Bandai’s efforts to reach out to new fans while continuing their efforts of making the Tales of series just as appealing to its long-time veterans.
