Bandai Namco just confirmed that Tales of Zestiria will indeed be hitting the PlayStation 4 and PC through Steam. Dates are:
North America: October 20
PlayStation 3/4: October 16
PC: October 20
The boxart in the images say something about "bonus content" but no confirmation on what that is yet. Feel free to speculate.
On top of English, Spanish, French, Italian and German subtitles, the PC/PS4 version will also include Russian subtitles. And as previously announced, it'll include both English and Japanese voiceovers.
Our first magazine scan for Tales of Berseria has appeared. As mentioned previously, our main character is a woman named Velvet, designed by Mutsumi Inomata and voiced by Rina Satou. Kosuke Fujishima will also be joining in character design. Now for the scan (taken shamelessly from ANN until I find another one):
According to the scan, there was an incident three years ago that was life changing for Velvet.
The setting seems to be the sacred kingdom of Midgand, which consists of several larger landmasses and numerous islands.
It's described as a world where shipbuilding and sailing technologies have developed.
There are climate variations between the north and south (the screens show areas of frigid cold and endless summer).
Bandai Namco Singapore's mobile site listed Tales of Zestiria as also being released for the PlayStation 4 and PC earlier today, with release dates as October 16 and October 20 respectively (the PS3 listing just said "Autumn 2015"). Note that those dates would be for Asia. It's since been taken down, so there's no telling if it was an actual early posting or a mistake. I'll keep an eye out for potential news.
An anime to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the series was announced at Tales Festival today. It will air in 2016 and be animated by ufotable.
Not 100% sure about the details, but apparently it's gonna be related to Zestiria?
There's a teaser video. Also a character in there I don't recognize...perhaps new?
