Namco Bandai Unveils Tales Of Zestiria for PlayStation 3

Posted on December 12, 2013 AT 04:11am

In commemoration of the Tales of series’ 20 year anniversary, Namco Bandai held a special NicoNico live stream to announce the latest entry into the series, Tales of Zestiria.

Tales of Zestiria takes place in a world called Green Wood, which was saved from darkness by a high-priest. However, the darkness is slowly returning and the high-priest is nowhere to be found. The game will feature a new battle system, according to series producer Hideo Baba, that was created after evaluating fan feedback. Baba promised to reveal more about the system in the future.

During the live stream, Baba revealed the game’s two main characters, Slay and Alicia, who have been designed by series artists Mutsumi Inomata, Kosuke Fujishima, Daigo Okumura, and Jin Iwamoto.

Tales of Zestiria is set to release worldwide in 2014, according to the publisher. Western gamers are currently waiting on Tales of Symphonia Chronicles and Tales of Xillia 2, which are both set to release in 2014.
