Tales of Orchestra Concert CD to be released

Hey this is a bit late and it's been a few months and stuff since last post and uh...hi.
The recent Tales of Orchestra Concert feat. Tales of Zestiria the X will be released on January 31, 2018. I don't have a list of performed songs on hand this time, but the site does warn that some may get left off the CD due to licensing, as has happened the other times.

ToZX English DVD/BD to be released in NA

The first season of Tales of Zestiria the X is scheduled to be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on November 21 in some North American countries. There is a standard DVD/BD combo that costs $64.98 and a limited edition that costs $84.98. Both cost less if you get them directly through Funimation though (I believe Funimation's shop ships to the US and Canada so if you live in another North American country than those, you may have to find another place to get it). The LE will include cards with character art as well as special packaging.
And yes, it includes both the English dub and the original Japanese audio with subtitles.

Next ToStage Announced for 2018

Sorry this is a bit late, I was distracted following hurricane news
After Tales of the Stage: The Last Score ended its run, the Tales of the Stage official site updated with the announcement of the upcoming play "Tales of the Stage: Lorelei no Chikara wo Tsugumono" (One Who Inherits the Power of Lorelei) which will be performed next year. Going by the below teaser, it will be about Asch.
