New PS2 Tales RPG

The last of this generation?

Namco is planning to announce a new PS2 instalment in its Tales RPG series, according to reports.

Various US websites claim that the next title in the series will be Tales of the Abyss, and confirmation and details are expected in a forthcoming issue of Jump Magazine in Japan.

The Tales series has been long-running and has enjoyed critical acclaim recently on the GameCube, whose Tales of Symphonia is held in high esteem around here. It's set to return on PSP and PS2 later this year in Tales of Eternia and Tales of Legendia respectively.

With Legendia still yet to be released in the US, the suggestion is that Abyss won't be released until sometime in 2006 - leading some commentators to speculate that it will be the last Tales RPG for the current generation of consoles.
