Tales of Zestiria Will Release in the West the Same Year as Japan

It feels like only just a few years ago (oh wait, it was) when Bandai Namco showed little interest in bringing Tales games to the west at all. How far we've come! In an E3 interview, it was announced that Tales of Zestiria will be released in the west the same year it hits shelves in Japan.

Dennis Lee, global brand manager for Bandai Namco, said "We've gone from over two years with Xillia 1, and now we’ve gotten it down to a year, and we're going to get it to less than that for Tales of Zestiria—it's going to be in the same year as the Japanese release. So they’re working on shrinking that time down as much as possible."

Of course, we still don't know which year this will be yet, but 2015 is the most likely.

Aside from that excellent news, we have a few new videos too. They're all conversation-focused, but you can really see the animation improvements from Xillia. Take a look:
