Tales of Zestiria Announced for PlayStation 3
Even more Tales on the horizon!
12.12.13 - 11:19 AM

Namco Bandai has announced Tales of Zestiria for PlayStation 3 in both Japan and North America, introducing two new characters, Sleigh and Alicia. Sleigh is designed by Mutsumi Inomata (Tales of Destiny Remake, Tales of Graces) and Alicia by Daigo Okumura (Tales of Xillia 2). Kosuke Fujishima (Tales of the Abyss, Tales of Vesperia) and Minoru Iwamoto (Tales of Legendia) are also designing the characters for the game and studio Ufotable is doing the animation. The term "zest" refers to passion or zeal.

Said to be "open-world," Zestiria will have bigger fields in the land of Greenwood. Taking place during the war between the Highland Kingdom and the Lawrence Empire, dragons also play a big role in this game. Baba has also mentioned that the new battle system is based on the surveys from the fans.

Fans who can't wait for Zestiria will take solace in the fact that both Tales of Symphonia Chronicles and Tales of Xillia 2 will see release in English-language territories in 2014.
