Tales of Zestiria will launch on PS3, PS4, and PC on October 20
Bandai Namco has also announced that the next Tales game, Tales of Zestiria, will be released for the PS3 and PS4 on October 20. But they weren’t done. The publisher revealed the game will also be released for the PC (through Steam) on the same day.
So what can fans expect from the next Tales game? Believe it or not, it’s about a “chosen one” that has to save the world:
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 Shepherd, 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?
Like most games in the Tales series, Tales of Zestiria is an action RPG, but players should expect “faster combat” in this newest entry:
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 isn’t the only Tales title in development at Bandai Namco. The publisher announced the 16th game in the franchise, Tales of Berseria, during the Tales of Festival last week in Japan.
