A leak of next issue of Jump magazine is being reported on a well known Tales site in Japan, the leak in question concerns the issues preview page, of it's upcoming issue which promises a big announcement of a new entry in a game series. "You definitely won't want to miss this!!", writes the magazine.  Jump magazine is often used to announce new games in the Tales series.

It's been confirmed Namco-Bandai are making a PSP remake of  Tales of Phantasia Narikiri Dungeon, which was the first ever sequel in the Tales series released in the year 2000 on Game Boy Color. The new game will be called "Tales of Phantasia Narikiri Dungeon X" 
 
The new PSP game is actually two games in one. In addition to a remake of the original Game Boy Color title, also included is a remake of Tales of Phantasia. This will be titled "Tales of Phantasia X". The combat system for this game will be fresh with current trends in the Tales series.
 
Jump magazine refers to Tales of Phantasia X as being a remake of the very first Tales game - a remake of the 1995 Super Famicom original. Tales of Phantasia was remade for PlayStation in 1998. The PlayStation remake was later remade for the PSP with 2006's "Tales of Phantasia - Full Voice Edition."


The last game in the Tales series was on Nintendo Wii, the 360 & PS3 are due a new game...

The dodge system looks pretty nice, but... This is for the Wii? Too bad.

Damn, i want another 360 game i bought Vesperia and really liked it which is surprising seeing i hate anime. It was also my first JRPG since Pokemon Red, wish i knew about this series earlier i may have got into JRPG's sooner.

That dodge system is really what I needed in Vesperia! Blocking was good enough to get me by though.

So is this coming out in North America?  I think I heard it was released in Japan, but had no plans to come over here yet, which is a real bummer, considering all the DS Tales games that never get ported over here either.

Yeah, but the console ones have had a lot more success. Legendia, Eternia, Symphonia, and Vesperia (ntm Symphonia Dawn of the New World) all made it across the ocean

I've enjoyed a couple of the Tales games, the most notable being Vesperia.  Dug the hell out of that game.

So it's a PSP game, huh? And a remake, too? There's no way this is getting localized... damn it.
