Tales-of-Innocence-RMany games in the Tales series have been localized, but not all of them. A few main-series titles never made it out of Japan, including Tales of Innocence R.

Tales of Innocence was initially released for the DS. It tells the story of a merchant’s son who rescues a fugitive and learns he has special powers from his past life.

Like Tales of Hearts, another DS game, it was remade for the PS Vita. However, while Tales of Hearts R was localized, neither Innocence nor Innocence R ever was.

Today, Mission Atelier is hosting a localization campaign for Tales of Innocence R. If you’re interested in playing this game in the West, today’s the day to tell Bandai Namco!

There are several ways you can show your interest.

  • Send a physical letter to Bandai Namco:
    BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc.
    1740 Technology Drive, Suite 600
    San Jose, CA 95110

  • Call Bandai Namco:
    Phone: 1 (408) 235-2000
    Toll-Free: 1 (888) 776-2626

  • Send a message to or leave a comment on the official Bandai Namco Facebook page
  • Send a Tweet about it to Bandai Namco
  • Send a Tweet about it to Gio Corsi using the #buildingthelist hashtag

You can find more details about the game and campaign at the official event page. While I don’t know much about Innocence R, I want to play as many Tales games as possible, this one included.

What do you say? Let’s get Tales of Innocence R localized!

Pokemon-Sun-and-MoonYesterday, new trademarks were discovered for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, along with logos for said games. This prompted rumors that those would be the newest Pokémon games.

In today’s special Pokémon Nintendo Direct, the rumors were confirmed. Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will be released in the holiday 2016 season.

We know next to nothing about them, except their names and that they’ll be compatible with Pokémon Bank (as will the Virtual Console releases of Red, Blue, and Yellow).

This seems to crush any chance of a Pokémon Z, which gives us two Pokémon generations in a row with no third version (although Black and White received direct sequels).

Despite my love for Pokémon Black and White, I wasn’t a big fan of Pokémon X and Y, so I can’t say I’m disappointed.

I look forward to seeing more from Pokémon Sun and Moon! What are your hopes for the newest Pokémon games? Sun and Moon, hmm… perhaps the story will involve OUTER SPACE!

Nostalgia-AliceYou might remember Nostalgia: Two Worlds | One Soul, an upcoming PC and Wii U game inspired by Ace Attorney and Zero Escape.

We first looked at it last August, and I shared new Nostalgia screenshots in December.

Since then, I’ve contributed freelance work to Nostalgia, so it holds an even more special place in my heart.

Therefore, I’m excited to announce that the Nostalgia: Two Worlds | One Soul Kickstarter is now live.

Nostalgia is about a girl named Alice who was forced to participate in experiments meant to determine whether or not an alternate universe exists. Set 12 years later, the game will involve both the characters and their alternate universe counterparts.

Gameplay is split between choice-based visual novel sections, escape-the-room puzzles, and occasional battle sequences. There are multiple endings.

The Wii U version will have features exclusive to the Gamepad, such as object scanning. Some puzzles will also be different depending on which version you play.

A prototype demo is available, although I had trouble getting it to run.

If you like what you see and want to support Nostalgia: Two Worlds | One Soul, tell your friends about it or visit the Kickstarter page.
