Tales of Zestiria | oprainfall

With Tokyo Game Show upon us, a lot of new information about games we’ve been anticipating has come to light. Continuing that trend, Bandai Namco has revealed a release window of “Summer 2015” for Tales of Zestiria in North America and Europe. With the game releasing in Japan on January 15, this will be the fastest localization in the series. The game will be exclusive to the PlayStation 3.

There is also a new TGS trailer which shows off the characters and the voice acting. On top of that, there is a video showing off-screen gameplay footage from TGS, as well. Check out both videos below and let us know what you think in the comments.

Tales of Zestiria is available for pre-order at Amazon and Amazon UK.

    No point in releasing a game in 2015 exclusively for PS3 (especially in North America) which is dying already. Why not PS4 too? Don’t need to be in the same release date of PS3, can be some time after (1 year after still acceptable), but release it for PS4 too NB.

    It’s a different case from Persona 3 and 4 which came in a time that PS3 was struggling and PS2 was selling well and with a huge fan base.

    That’s actually not true at all. Tales of Vesperia was localized and released less than a month after Japan. Yes, they were localizing while the game was in development, but to make the claim that this is faster than that is completely untrue.

    The only capacity in which this is faster, possibly, is if they are going from Japanese to completely localized between January and “summer” of next year, in which case it’s actually about the same timeframe that Vesperia’s localization took.

  • guys, I know that their going to be releasing the Tales of Hearts R video game in English Dub because amber hearts voice actress, Wendee Lee, has made an appearance in the 2012 RPG video game ‘Tales of Grace F’ for the PS3, and here’s a clip that proves it, check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZ1lwoMEoO8

    so, what do you think, because if that’s not enough to convince or to give a slight chance of hope to you guy, then I don’t know what will because once it’s release to public and it turns out that it’s in English dub, then it’ll show that the previous announcement about Tales of Hearts R is only going to have Subtitled Japanese Voice-Overs was wrong, and I was right all along. But if so, then they just might have a chance to release the PS3 version of Tales of Vesperia and have it English dub as well, and hopefully soon next year, at least that’s what I theories’ for the PS3 version of Tales of Vesperia for the time being. but hey, that all I’m telling you guys at this point, so basically, I just wanted to make sure that this announcement isn’t true. wouldn’t you agree, everyone? 🙂

      1: This article is about Zestiria
      2: Tales of Hearts R is not getting dubbed. This has been confirmed by multiple sources. Graces F had English voiceovers for Kohaku/Amber because they ALWAYS put English voiceovers for the cameo battles in the arena, even if the character never had an English voiceover. Also, Wendee Lee was already playing another role in the game, so it wasn’t like they specifically brought her on for that role.

      I also do not get why people still think Vesperia PS3 is going to happen still. It isn’t. It’s past the time for that to happen. If Vesperia’s PS3 version is ever going to see the light of day in English, it will be a few console generations from now, or when handhelds are advanced enough to handle the game properly.

    • yeah, i know that this article is about Zestiria in which i am excited for the release by the way, but still, it can’t hurt to be too careful about this, so my point still stand as such. 🙂
