Tales producer teases “a lot of surprise announcements”

"We’re planning on making this a Tales of filled year," says Baba.

Tales series producer Hideo Baba has said there will be a number of “surprise announcements” for the RPG franchise this year.

“We’re planning on making this a Tales of filled year,” said Baba on the PlayStation Blog, “so we have a lot of surprise announcements lined up — stay tuned!”

Baba also announced the coming availability of Tales of Graces F, launched last February, on PlayStation Network in North America next Tuesday, March 26. Publisher Namco Bandai will offer a Standard Edition for $34.99 and a Knight Edition, which includes over 10 downloadable add-ons, for $54.99.

And, of course, Tales of Xillia is due out on PlayStation 3 this summer. If you missed the latest video and screenshots, check it out here.
