ToS OVA to be relased in Germany

According to a news post KSM made on Facebook, they'll be distributing the Tales of Symphonia OVA next year on DVD and Blu-Ray. And yes, they do mean all 11 episodes.
(Sorry to any English speakers who got their hopes up when they saw the title in the backroom.)

ToZ Found In Steam Database

Tales of Zestiria popped up in Steam's database earlier and SteamDB caught it. The entry has since been changed to just say "TOZ" (as if that isn't obvious though), but...it was there.
This is how it appeared earlier:

Some of you guys might also have noticed ToZ footage showing up in the making of a PS4 commercial, but since that was just an old PlayStation 20th anniversary video playing in the background, I'm gonna take it as nothing for now.

ToZ After Episode DLC PV

A new trailer showing off Tales of Zestiria's Alisha After Episode DLC has been uploaded to Bandai Namco's YouTube channel.
As a reminder: This is story DLC that takes place after the game and stars Alisha as the main character. The DLC is now available for free for a couple weeks after which it will cost money, so if you're playing the Japanese version, go grab that.

TalesFes 2015 Cast

...I didn't notice some of the Tales of Festival 2015 cast had already been announced. Blah.
(I have a great excuse though, I was playing ToZ at the time)
As usual, there will likely be additions and the theme song artists to appear will be announced later.
