After a series of leaks regarding a release date and PS4 and PC versions for Tales of Zestiria, Bandai Namco has officially announced what everyone pretty much already knew. Tales of Zestiria comes out for PlayStation 3 and 4 in Europe, the Middle-East, and Astralasia (their word, not mine) on October 16; for PC via Steam in the Americas and Europe on October 20; for PlayStation 3 and 4 in North America on October 20, and for Steam and PlayStation in Brazil on October 23.

In its press release, Bandai Namco said of the game:

For more than 20 years, the TALES OF franchise has been captivating fans around the world with its traditional Japanese RPG elements married with innovative real-time combat systems and beloved characters.

An unseen evil force known as Malevolence is spreading across the land, corrupting the world and causing humanity to falter. Players will embark on an epic journey as Sorey, a young pure-hearted adventurer whose destiny is to become The Shepard, an individual of great power that can banish Malevolence. Does Sorey have the courage and heart to wield this extraordinary responsibility for good, or will he fall prey to the evils of its power?

TALES OF ZESTIRIA introduces a new version of its celebrated real-time battle system, allowing for faster combat with side dashes and new combo opportunities with the fusion techniques. Throughout his quest, Sorey will befriend humans and spirits known as Seraphim, unseen to most humans, to aide him on his journey. Because of Sorey's unique ability to communicate with the Seraphim he is able to fuse with their essence to create new elemental artes for strategic attacks to decimate foes.

Tales of Zestiria Release Date

The company's European VP of marketing added:

The TALES OF series continues to connect with RPG fans searching for a pure Japanese role-playing experience. With the high adoption rate of the current generation of consoles and continued popularity of the PC platform, we are more than excited to be able to port TALES OF ZESTIRIA to the PlayStation®4 system and STEAM exclusively for Western fans across the Americas and Europe. Players will now be able to choose which platform they want to experience the Tales of Zestiria adventure on!
