Tales Trademark | oprainfall

Once again, Namco Bandai continues to trademark more Tales names for their potential future titles. Today, we learned that Tales of Bibliotheca, Tales of Memories, and Tales of Favorite have joined the large list of trademarked names that Namco Bandai now owns.

As always, we can only guess if Namco Bandai is going to use any of these new titles. Traditionally, the Japanese developer has trademarked numerous amounts of names to use for their Tales franchise in the past, and, after this trademarking spree, only one of these titles gets the honor to be used for the next Tales game.

Here is the list of surfaced Tales titles that have been trademarked by Namco Bandai as of now:

  • Tales of Zestoria
  • Tales of Creales
  • Tales of Castora
  • Tales of Link
  • Tales of Jin
  • Tales of Ansis
  • Tales of Zestiria
  • Takes of Zestias
  • Tales of Bibliotheca
  • Tales of Memories
  • Tales of Favorite

So, what are your favorites in this list? Do you believe any of these new titles should be used at all? Or should Namco Bandai continue to search for a more appropriate name? Until more information comes in, we can only wait and see what Namco Bandai’s next move will be.

Many titles in the Tales franchise are available on Amazon:

About Samuel North

A writer at Operation Rainfall, a lover of videogames, and an insomniac who can't tell what day it is. There really isn't much else interesting to say, except that I've eaten an entire box of ramen noodles in one sitting.

    In anycase, they are just gonna wind up on one console anyways. Namco might as well be bought by sony since they dont like putting these games on other systems anymore.

      That’s because it’s a Japanese company.. the Wii couldn’t handle most of their titles and the 360 was a failure in Japan… it’s pretty obvious why they focused on the PS3…

    • Mike Misiorowski

      Even here Vesperia had really poor sales on 360

    • Rick Xeros

      Which makes it all the sadder it didn’t get a PS3 port in America

    • Red

      Doesnt stop tecno koel from releasing their games on 360… despite them not selling in japan for their system.

    • Xx_Kares_xX

      I’m not really a fan of Tecmo Koei.. but I can’t remember the last time they released something of even a fraction the scale of a Tales game… not trying to troll here, just pointing out that it takes far less effort to port something like Dynasty Warriors, especially when it’s built from the ground up for more than one system.

    • John Ellis

      They may put one on the 3DS since it’s doing so well.

  • Anthony Yousef

    Hoping at least one of these comes on a console I have! But regardless pleased that they’re preparing new titles!

    Tales of Zestoria
    Tales of Castora
    Tales of Jin
    Tales of Ansis
    Tales of Memories

    The others could either be improved on, or tossed in the garbage.

  • Twisty_tie

    I believe it’s “Tales of Catastora.”

  • Eric Taylor


  • Andreas Bauer

    Wow those names are horrible xD
    Memories is fine and Castora sounds alright, the rest… please not XD

  • Gary65

    And I bet none of them will be for a Ninty console -_-

  • Rick Xeros

    Tales of Favorite *nods* I mean Favorite is right in the title! Why wouldn’t I prefer it? 😛

  • Jeremy Collum

    personally i like Zestoria as i think it sounds kind of cool i also wonder if it’s going to be kind of like Vesperia where it’s named after a star or something

  • V. Dokk.

    The ideal thing would be ALL of’em become real games.
    Heh. Joking.
    But really, Zestoria(and his derivatives), Catastora and Memories are the better sounding of the list. Creales could be fine, too, specially if they changed it to Creation, in the definitive title.

  • Works for me

    Tales of Localizations In Less Than Two Years please!
