New Article: What Happened to Local Multiplayer?
January 26th, 2015 by PanbanRichard


First article published on the BBS, by myself actually, which touches on a subject that’s been bothering me for a while with Tales games. Feel free to give it a read.

Also, I hope this gives anyone who is interested in submitting articles an idea as to how they’re written for the site.

Update: New Layout & More Content
January 18th, 2015 by PanbanRichard

Alright, it’s almost been two years but this website finally got an update. I figured since this was going to be an update after a long time, it has to be one that is well worth the wait. So I hope this update satisfies everyone’s patience. Now for an overview:

1) New Layout

The layout of the BBS has received a huge makeover. Now we have a proper navigation sidebar which leads to pages not only for the BBS. We also have a new banner, and the website has been reformatted so that it’s not completely reliant on HTML.

2) New Content

We now have three new pages to the website: Articles, Podcasts & Videos. Content related to these pages that have been created by Mizuho members will be posted there. So far, we only have a bit in these pages, but I trust that they’ll be expanded on in the future.

3) WordPress Updates

Mizuho BBS updates are now powered by WordPress on the main page. More experimentation will be done with this system in the future in order to improve the functionality of this site.

4) BBS Modifications

The About page from the BBS was updated and moved to the main navigation instead. The related links page was also removed due to the nature of our new layout. A new Main button was added, which returns you back to the main page. As always, other internal modifications were made to the BBS to keep it up to date.

5) Community Contributions

A big focus that Mizuho will be heading for in the future is user created content. The Mizuho BBS is a platform for many Tales fans to express their love for the series through videos, articles, podcasts, and more. We have to start somewhere, so if anyone would like to contribute to any of these pages, for now we can discuss it through e-mail at

More updates will be added in the future when I have the time. As always, thank you all so much for supporting Mizuho all these years, and for bearing with my lack of updates for over a year.
