You would be forgiven in thinking that Namco Bandai might sit on the title for a couple of years before deciding to make a worldwide release of Tales of Zestiria, but less than 12 hours after being formally announced in Japan – Namco Bandai America and Namco Bandai Europe have confirmed that the next Tales of game is headed worldwide.
This brand new Playstation 3 adventure will delve into a grand storyline and discover the “zest” of adventure with brand new characters, magical lands and action-packed gameplay that the ‘Tales of’ franchise is known for from fans around the world. As a 20th Anniversary title, they hope that Tales of Zestiria will return to the series roots of a fantasy setting, with character designs being handled by all four series designers: Mutsumi Inomata, Kosuke Fujishima, Daigo Okumura, and Minoru Iwamoto. ufotable Inc. will also return to create the game’s animated cut scenes and opening movie.
