Tales Union Closing Down

by Shawn

You may have noticed as of late, there hasn't been much posting in terms of news on Tales Union.

Since the site's inception (even before the Tales Union rebranding), I was the main poster of headlines on the website. Due to real-life duties and taking on a greater backend management role on the Gaming Union Network, I had to refocus my duties which had the posting switch over to other staff members.

Due to scheduling and other real-life duties with myself and the other staff members, there hasn't been enough time to properly focus on the website with the recent uptick in terms of news and content being announced of for the series. Because of this, myself and the other senior members of the network have decided to put Tales Union into a hibernation-like state. We expect the site to still remain up for the near future and we'll inform you if there's any changes to that decision.

It's been a wild past six or so years for the website. I'd like to thank the visitors who kept visiting the site over the years. We couldn't have stayed up as long as we did without your help. :)

Cosplay by Melissa

Cosplay of the week is back and to celebrate the return of our weekly community feature we have a cosplayer from Tales of Xillia, the next Tales title to release in the west early this August.

Milla Maxwell is the star of this week's feature, who is cosplayed by GS-Force. We sat down and asked her to describe the features in Milla's design that stood out to her and the materials she needed to use to make her costume for Xillia's leading lady.

News Editor Openings Now Available At Tales Union

by Shawn

As some of you may already know, I'm responsible for the coding that goes on behind-the-scenes here at Tales Union and the rest of the Gaming Union Network. Due to personal reasons and coding up some super special projects for GU, I've had to scale down posting up headlines here and elsewhere around the network.

Tales Union already has some great news editors, namely Melissa and Ashley, but we're looking to hire on a few more people.

Burning Question: Thoughts On Tales of the Abyss 3DS's Release Dates

Abyss (3DS)3DS by Shawn

It's been a while since our last Burning Question back in September, hasn't it? The segment got delayed due to some unforseen scheduling issues on my end but we're restarting the segment this week with a pertinent question tied to news that broke earlier this week: Tales of the Abyss's North American and European release dates for the Nintendo 3DS.

For those who aren't already aware we exclusively broke the news this Monday that the European release was set for November 25, 2011 (a slight delay from the original November 10th release date announced earlier this year). And then a day later Namco Bandai's North America branch announced that they would release the game on February 14, 2011, falling on Valentine's Day.

Burning Question: What Do You Think About Innocence R And Twin Braves?

by Shawn

Last week we got an amazing response to our initial Burning Question segment asking fans what game they started out the series with. This week we have another question and it involves the two newly announced Tales titles in Japan.

For those who haven't been keeping track lately, here's a quick rundown. The first game announced, Tales of Innocence R, is a re-imagining of the original and includes a revised game theme, a new battle system and a new gameplay system alongside a new opening movie.

The second game announced, Tales of the Heroes: Twin Brave, plays similarly to the Musou/Dynasty Warriors franchise with the player controlling one character with a partner character being controlled by the game's AI. Characters from the mothership titles (and surprisingly enough Tales of the Tempest) will be included.

So now that you are caught up, here's this week's question...

Burning Question: What Was Your First Tales Experience?

by Shawn

American and European Tales of fans have had a great year so far with announcements of both Tales of the Abyss on the Nintendo 3DS and Tales of Graces f on the PS3 both being confirmed for release in both regions.

In that spirit, we're wanting to do the same and reach out to the fans of the series in a new segment which should look familiar to those of you who visit our sister sites Final Fantasy Union and Kingdom Hearts Union. To start things off we're wanting to ask you guys a question:

Welcome To Tales Union v3

by Shawn

If you're viewing this website right now and have been a long-time follower of the website, you may have noticed that things look a little bit different. We had partially teased it over at Final Fantasy Union, but never told exactly what it was about --- so here's the rundown of what's changed.

Unlike the Version 2 update, which radically changed the layout, this layout keeps the general design of the previous layout but cleans things up, which should give the site a little more breathing room than before. All in all, those who were used to to the previous layout should feel at home in this new layout.
