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.

Recently at Wonder Festival 2017 Summer, Alter showed off their prototype of their Eizen figure (picture taken from here).

ToRays to be Localized

It was announced at Anime Expo that Tales of the Rays will be making its way out of Japan and has an official English site (it's basically just like the Japanese site, but in English). All the pages besides the Movie one have been opened so far. Some of the characters' names have been changed a bit:
Ickx Neve->Ix Nieves
Mileena Weiss->Kept the same
Mark Grump->Marcus Grimm
Gefion->Kept the same
Garows Outsorrow->Gareth Outrigger
