TV Anime Announced For 20th Anniversary

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?

Some New Trademarks Filed

Oh look, it's that time again. Bandai Namco Entertainment has filed a few new trademarks, this time for Orfellia, Berseria, and Alestia.

We don't know yet if this is for a new mothership or a new escort/mobile title, but if it's for a main game, then Alestia is out since Abyss already took the letter A. Of course, they could always file more again and none of these could make it, like they did with Graces and Zestiria.
Tales Festival is next month. Perhaps we'll find out what these are all about then?

ToZ English Screenshots

Along with that new trailer, Bandai Namco has also put up a few English screenshots of Tales of Zestiria.
