Older Discussion[edit]

What about the Narikiri Dungeon games for "Tales of the World"? The first was a GB game.. it was kinda weak, IMO. But ND2 (for the GBA) had most of the party characters from ToP/ToE and I think ToD (haven't played this, so I'm not sure) making cameo appearances... I think it was somewhere about 20 or 25 different characters in total.

Since the game was based on collecting different suits to turn into different characters (think transformation masks in LoZ:Majora's Mask.. there were approx 200 suits, "gotta catch 'em all"-style), and you could earn the suits of all the cameos and play as them (the battle music even changed to the same as from the game the character came form, and you got to use their trademark moves).

Those games should be added to this list, but I don't really know their release dates or much about them (I had to play only a partially-translated ND2, but it still quite fun; recommended). alexpenev 13:49, 14 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Yeah, I've added those games, but they go in the Spin off group. As I don't have much information about these games, I can't really add anything more than the titles and dates. Its unlikely that English wikipedia pages for all the games would be created or have enough information in them to justify creating them. I was wondering though about the italics. Why was that added? I'm sure its some thing that you do in writing, but I just don't know. (Edit 2: found out why it's done - hurrah)

Sometime, I'll be adding more information about the series in general and hopefully to get big enough for an automatic Table of Contents and to justify removing the stub :) (Edit: Sorry for not signing this.. just found out now how to :P) PKFC

So I put in tables because I don't know how to indent... With Wiki code, I don't think tables are that complicated or bloated in the entry's text. I figure <nowiki>s and &nbsp;s are more complicated than the tables... But I'm a bad person for not knowing how to indent. If you feel up to the task of improving the page, go for it. :P PKFC 12:31, 8 Jan 2005 (UTC)

So March 3 is the release date for the Eternia PSP port and Tales of Legendia IS Tales of Melfes. First dawned on me when reading magic-box's summary talking about an ancient race in Legendia called Melfes and confirmed it elsewhere. The PSP preorder disc that came with Rebirth was just an ad for a PS2 game, not for a PSP game :P PKFC 00:36, 20 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Symphonia is missing from the "Tales series" navigation menu at the bottom of this page and all of the individual games' pages.


I'm new at this editing thing, and I just wanted to update the dates of the Tales of Symphonia: OVA releases, and put it in the Spin-off section, since it technically is out. But I kinda screwed the page up, so could someone fix it, I'm a noob, and I'm sorry, but I didn't mean to.

This needs to be updated[edit]

There's a spinoff on mobile of the series in general and its called tales of link. If never heard from it, look it up and maybe play it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:00, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

Main Title[edit]

Why Xillia 2 is considered main title? is there any official list? --2601:647:4801:8474:1046:3276:6DC7:2257 (talk) 04:26, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Why would you assume a sequel is not part of the main series to begin with? Sergecross73 msg me 04:31, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
Symphonia: Dawn of the New World DragonZero (Talk · Contribs) 04:41, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
Right, but Tales of Destiny 2 is a mainline entry though, so it's not like it's some sort "series rule" or something, nor would a sequel typically inherently be considered a spinoff or something. Regardless, I'm pretty they more directly label/classify them in Japan. (What they call "mothership titles" generally equate to mainline series, while those they label "escort titles" generally equate to "spinoffs".) Sergecross73 msg me 04:55, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
Yup. I was not that IP address if there was a misunderstanding there. DragonZero (Talk · Contribs) 23:03, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
No, I knew it wasn't you. I know you're pretty knowledgeable with the Tales series, we've crossed paths in related articles in the past. Sorry if I was not nice sounding in my response. It was late when I first read this. Sergecross73 msg me 00:19, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

Table with all the games[edit]

The German article has a nice table with all main releases with dates and platforms in a nice table. I thought of translating it to english, and putting it in there. I am unsure what to do about the timeline. It would be redundant as all the dates are already in the table, but it is nice to see all the releases at one glance. Leberkasschnitzel (talk) 19:31, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

I think we already have something pretty similar at a separate article here - List of Tales media. Sergecross73 msg me 20:40, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Requested move 8 February 2018[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: moved. Ixfd64 (talk) 19:34, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

Tales (series)Tales (video game series) – Outside Japan series means (TV series) or (film series) or (novel series) to most people. In this case Tales (TV series) also exists, but that's not the point, even if it didn't (series) as a dab fails WP:CRITERIA. Alternatively since it is in Category:Video game franchises (video game franchise) would also be okay. In ictu oculi (talk) 14:38, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Support - And redirect Tales (series) to Tales as an R from incomplete disambiguation. Alternatively, moving it to Tales of could be a possibility, since all the games share the "of" as well.ZXCVBNM (TALK) 14:52, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Support - either proposal really. "(video game series)" is warranted due to the TV show, and "Tales of" would be a valid way to avoid disambiguation altogether, as that's it name in Japan, and is used pretty frequently in English as well. Sergecross73 msg me 14:56, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
I guess per Sergecross73 a WP:NATURALDAB argument could be made for a disambiguator-less Tales of, but it just looks weird/incomplete to me (per Netoholic, avoid WP:ASTONISH) and seems less approachable for readers than Tales of (franchise), even though that's not a policy reason (but I'd weakly support dabless Tales of as well). Ben · Salvidrim!  16:08, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
Agreed. I moved it to Tales (video game series) per above. --Ixfd64 (talk) 19:34, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
