At Anime Expo in Los Angeles today, Bandai Namco confirmed that North America would be getting a collector’s edition for their forthcoming RPG, Tales of Zestiria.  This version will only be offered for the PS4 version of the game (it’s also going to be available for PS3 and Windows) and is currently available for preorder at Bandai Namco’s online store.  The solicitation page doesn’t list the extras yet, strangely enough, but abyssalchronicles provided the details of what will be included in the collector’s edition. From their write up:

PS4 game software

Collector’s edition packaging

Celestial Record steelcase

4 Chibi Kyun Chara figures

3 pixel art rubber straps

Dawn of the Shepherd anime blu-ray

Artworks book

Music Selection CD

Collector’s Edition DLC pack

It’s not yet known what the DLC is, but it’s very likely to be the Mystic Arte and Alishia’s Story content being offered with the Japanese and European versions of the collector’s edition. The CE will set you back $129.95, but based on all the awesome goodies you get for spending your hard earned money, it looks to be worth the cost to the dedicated Tales enthusiast.

Here’s the Anime Expo 2015 trailer to get you even more hyped for this release.

Tales of Zestiria is the story of two warring nations in a land called Glenwood. Their conflict has created aggression, fear and apprehension among the populace and these combined emotions have somehow resulted in the manifestation of dangerous monsters called Hellion. The story focuses on protagonist Sorey, who wishes to become a person who can communicate with an ancient race called the Seraphim that were once abundant but have now become scarce. His purpose in doing so is to find a way to bring the Seraphim back to the world to enjoy the harmony they once had with humans ages ago in order to put an end to the Hellion and to stop the war so that people can live in peace with each other as it was in ancient times. During his quest, he will make friends, encounter enemies and learn a great deal about the world he lives in during a journey of exploration and discovery.

Tales of Zestiria will be available for PS3, PS4 and Windows (via Steam) on October 16 2015 in Europe and on October 20 2015 in North America. Remember that the Collector’s Edition is only being offered for the PS4.

    Its…………..expensive. As much as I like the Tales series, I definitely am not putting down the amount of money they are asking for. I understand its to cover costs and make a profit, but I have to see a collector’s edition retain its value and not take a dive bomb downward in price.

    • Lord Ackercocke

      I think I paid that much for the last Tales collector’s edition. I was not happy about the price but I bit the bullet. I did not regret it.

    • Tara

      Yeah, that’s about standard for the Tales CE boxes.Xillia and Xillia 2 were the same price. Prior to that, there were no Tales CEs, save for the steelbook Vesperia for 360… all I will say is, the CEs now are well worth the money.

  • Tara

    A little disappointed that it’s PS4-only for the CE, but I’ve put an order on it anyway. I don’t have a PS4 yet, but I’ll probably have one by the time Zestiria is out anyway, considering I’ve got more than enough reasons to get one. (The key will be having the money to get one, heh.)

    Regardless, for anyone that would prefer to order the game from Amazon, I would like to remind everyone that the Namco store on their website is now using Amazon as the framework, and it’s compatible with Amazon Prime and other features of Amazon.

  • Lord Ackercocke

    I just pre-ordered on Namco’s website via my Amazon account. That’s very cool we can do that.. Cheers for the heads up as per usual Operation Rainfall.
