The long running Tales series has proven popular with gamers over the years. It's found itself on several Nintendo systems in the past, with the likes of Tales of Symphonia on the GameCube, Tales of the Abyss on the 3DS and Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World on Wii.

Tales of Xillia will be the next game from the series to reach Western shores. North American PlayStation 3 owners will be able to pick it up on 6th August while a European date is yet to be announced.

In an interview with Kotaku, Hideo Baba, the producer behind the franchise has complimented the Wii U, but said he doesn't have any plans to develop any games for the system right now:

I think the Wii U is a brilliant console that offers a lot of innovation and possibility for new types of gameplay. However at this current time we don't have any development plans to make any Tales of games for the Wii U.

To be fair to Baba, he isn't just singling out Wii U, he also said there are no games in development for the other next-generation consoles either:

Just like the Wii U, we actually don't have any plans.
