I’m really loving how much Lloyd’s chances have risen thanks to these new pieces of evidence. The only thing that’s really bugging me is the trademarked logo. It just seems odd to have series in the title when no other logo in the game has that. Even Dragon Quest, which represents multiple entries, uses the DQ11 logo, even in the Hero trailer. If it’s used for a stage that travels through multiple worlds in the series then it would make sense but I don’t see that happening. I just don’t see why they wouldn’t go with the the ToS logo in both the trailer and the stage selection since it’s the game they’re choosing to focus on.
Basically what zephyr here said. DQ11 logo was used with Luminary's introduction (despite having 3 DQ alts) as he is still the face of that DLC pack, while the general DQ logo was used for his mii costume section, which totally makes sense. If you check the current wikipedia article for Tales of series, they are using "Tales of" logo that is part of the Abyss one (they even say it below it). They probably just want once and for all a "Tales of Series" logo to stop using parts of specific games' logos.I was thinking that the logo could be used when introducing mii costumes, since I believe if Lloyd got in we'd most likely see some other Tales of games get some kind of representation.
As an aside note, guys, you probably have been hearing about the news of "Tales of" news are coming" from Sabi/Polarpanda, which I can confirm (as I'm in contact with him and his NoA source) that this was stated indeed by his NoA Source in our private group chat on discord (same guy that gave us hints for banjo and Link's awakening, among other leaks in the past year). Which basically means something Tales is gonna be announced for Nintendo. He told us this the same day the trademarks hit twitter and became viral, but whether this is related or not we don't know… still a curious coincidence. Also yes, in Sabi's discord Sabi came during part of the chat a couple of days ago and said something among the lines "well i have heard we are getting some type of tales news" or something like that, so that's why I'm sharing this here now, otherwise I would have kept it between me and them before going public with it yet.
Now, what could this mean? My thought process:
Unless Tales of Arise for some reason gets a very late confirmation that it's coming to Switch, I doubt it's that… altho it would be awesome, but they would have already said it's coming to Switch imo.
It definitely cannot be mobile game, as a NoA source wouldn't know about mobile stuff from Namco, that would definitely need to be a Namco source, and he isn't one.
So my guess is that the news are either Smash related (as the biggest reach I can make) or that we are getting a port/remake of some sort, I honestly wouldn't mind Symphonia getting a Definitive edition type of remake like Xenoblade Chronicles is but maybe I'm reaching even further in dream land there, lol.
OR maybe a collection like the PS4 is apparently gonna get, altho I didn't read that it was coming to Switch, just PS4…
Anyway, Sabi asked our source "for what and when?" but he hasn't replied to us yet, he just comes and goes as always, which is annoying as hell. Either way, Tales of news of some kind for Nintendo are coming eventually, I'm guessing it will be an announcement at TGA since we don't have other events for big announcements left (unless I'm missing something), or unless it's a minor thing after all and it just gets tweeted or something...that are just my personal guesses tho.
