    >> Bandai Namco Files New Tales Trademarks In Japan: Tales of Berseria, Orfellia and Alestia

    a745


    Three new Tales of trademarks have been discovered filed by Bandai Namco Entertainment in Japan.


    • 2015-38505 - Tales of Berseria

    • 2015-38506 - Tales of Orfellia

    • 2015-38507 - Tales of Alestia

    To those who don't get how this works, Bandai Namco Japan usually files trademarks of possible Tales titles from time to time in order to reserve that title for their use. This may or may not become a future title, but them having filed new name trademarks usually indicates that a game is in the works. There are times when a title may never be used (like Tales of Creales and Catastora, then there are times when it does get used but is modified (Tales of Gracia -> Tales of Graces). Sometimes they'll actually file variations of the name they're thinking of (Tales of Zestiria could have been Tales of Zestoria or Tales of Zestias). They're also not always filed for mothership games, such as the Tales of Asteria trademark becoming a mobile game.

    Should any of these be chosen as a main game, Alestia may be out of the question, since the initials "TOA" for the Tales of series is already taken by Tales of the Abyss.

    >> Bandai Namco Asia Says Recent Tales Rumors Will Be Discussed At Tales of Festival

    a745

    Well, this is a surprise. Bandai Namco Asia's Facebook account just hinted that they might actually be commenting on certain Tales rumors at this coming Tales of Festival.



    They linked to an article about the upcoming Tales of Festival 2015 in their post.

    (Note that this is the Asia branch of the company; not the American, European nor the Japanese branch. Some regions may not have the actual post visible to them, but as of the time of writing, it's live on their Facebook page.)

    So far, the only rumors we've heard so far are that Tales of Zestiria might be getting a PS4 release and that it might also be getting a Steam release.

    Now, it wouldn't make much sense for Bamco to comment about the rumors and link to a major Tales event to only just deny the rumors... so perhaps, we can expect an "announcement" during the event?

    We'll keep you posted! Hyped up yet?

    Tales of Zestiria was released in Japan on January 22, 2015, and will be released in North America and Europe this Fall 2015. Orders are still available at the following shops:

    >> Tales of Zestiria PS4 Version Listed In Spanish and Dutch Online Retailers (UPDATE: U.S. Best Buy Site Listing)

    a745


    UPDATE: There is a listing for Tales of Zestiria for Playstation 4 on the U.S. Best Buy website along with a release date of October 27th, 2015. Again, this is all a confusing matter but for now we're still labeling this all as a rumor.



    ---------------

    Somewhat in support of the rumor from a while back, a PlayStation 4 version for Tales of Zestiria was spotted listed in Spanish and Dutch online retailers' websites.


    The PS4 version of Tales of Zestiria was first spotted on the Dutch retailer NedGame approximately 2 days ago, with the site listing the game with a September 25, 2015 release. The page for the game was eventually removed.


    However, Spanish retailer Xtralife also has the game listed for the PS4, this time with an October 31, 2015 release date. As of the time of writing, the page is still live. Their listing even has a mock-up boxart:


    When asked however, the Spanish Bandai Namco Twitter account denied the existence of a PS4 version and answered that the game is for the PS3 only.


    In their defense, the XtraLife website also listed Wichter 2 for the PlayStation 3 (which doesn't really exist) and that the mock-up boxart is nothing but the PS3 Japanese boxart with the PS4 banner and PEGI logo plastered on (the Japanese boxart still has the Japanese letters for Tales of Zestiria at the bottom of the game logo).

    Is this only for now?

    A rumor for a PlayStation 4 version for Tales of Zestiria popped up when footage of the game was spotted in a making-of video of a PS4 games commercial, but we initially disregarded it as the footage came from an old PlayStation 20th anniversary video reel. Right now though, we're not entirely sure anymore.

    Tales of Zestiria is also rumored to head for Steam as a listing for it was spotted on the Steam Database.

    At present, the only official information released for Tales of Zestiria's Western release date is that it'll be on Fall 2015 for the PlayStation 3. We'll keep you posted for any changes in that regard.

    Tales of Zestiria was released in Japan on January 22, 2015, and will be released in North America and Europe this Fall 2015. Orders are still available at the following shops:

    >> Get Ready For "Massive Surprises" And Celebrate The Tales of 20th Anniversary!

    a745

    Bandai Namco's latest press release teases "massive surprises" for the Tales of Series' 20th anniversary, along with a lovely video taking us through the Tales timeline.


    20 years of success, innovation, fantasy adventures and epic battles!

    Since 1995, the Tales Of series is considered among the most representative JRPG sagas thanks to its breathtaking storylines replete with humanist themes, unique battle system and character design! BANDAI NAMCO Games have put together a video showcasing the full timeline of this beautiful and long tale-teller.

    Thanks to fans and JRPG lovers, the series is celebrating its 20th anniversary with Tales of Zestiria, a tribute in every sense:
    • A unique collaboration between the 4 emblematic character designers who shaped the series

    • Unique references to past games

    • Many upcoming activities

    Coming in 2015, Tales of Zestiria will be going back to the roots in terms of setting with its medieval environment, feeling of epic fantasy, and classic storytelling. The story follows Sorey, a young idealistic Human living with Seraphims, legendary beings invisible to other humans that have nonetheless shared the same soil for centuries. In a world torn by war and political skirmishes between the Hyland Kingdom and the Rolance Empire, Sorey will have to accept the burden of the Shepherd and fight human darkness to protect the world from malevolence that poison the world and reunite all races once more.

    An anniversary won't be complete without massive surprises... ... Stay tuned for amazing news over the upcoming months!

    There can be a lot of things we can expect in these coming months. One of them could just be that rumored Steam release for Tales of Zestiria. We'll keep you posted!

    And don't forget to share your Tales works on social media by using the hashtag #IAmTalesOf!

    Tales of Zestiria was released in Japan on January 22, 2015, and will be releasedin North America and Europe sometime in the future. Oders are still available at the following shops:

    >> UPDATED: Amazon Germany Lists 20 Euro Tales of Graces f and Tales of Symphonia Chronicles Compilation

    a745

    It looks like Europe will be getting an affordable bundle for Tales of Graces f and Tales of Symphonia Chronicles.


    Amazon Germany has listed a "Tales of Graces f / Tales of Symphonia Chronicles Compilation" for the PlayStation 3, with a list price of 19.99 Euros (roughly $23). The site lists the bundle to be released on March 27, 2015.

    UPDATE (March 9, 2015) - Amazon has also put up a cover for the said compilation. It doesn't seem to be a mock-up, so I guess it's pretty official now?


    No news yet if the US will be getting the same compilation. Regardless, those in Germany at least can pre-order the bundle now at Amazon.de.

    Thanks for the heads up, @jpgames_de.

    >> RUMOR: Tales of Zestiria Might Be Heading To Steam

    a745

    An entry for Tales of Zestiria just appeared on Steam's database.


    SteamDB.info shows a new page that might hint at Tales of Zestiria heading to Steam. At present, the entry on Steam's database is named as "TOZ," but a quick check on Google's cache of the page earlier shows that it indeed says "Tales of Zestiria."


    At the time of writing, the Google cache has already been updated to the most recent page, but we can personally confirm that it indeed had "Tales of Zestiria" earlier.

    There's also another rumor floating around that the game will also be making its way to the PlayStation 4. This first stemmed up from a making of video for a commercial for PlayStation 4 video games, where Japanese actor Takayuki Yamada is being recorded playing a PS4 console, and a screen on the side shows Tales of Zestiria for a split second (specifically at 1:50 of the video) :




    However, we're disregarding this for now given that the video the Zestiria footage was taken from is the old PlayStation 20th anniversary video in general, and not specifically for the PS4. The exact same scene of Tales of Zestiria in the making of video of the PS4 commercial appears in the 1:38 mark of the 20th anniversary video:


    For all we know, they could've just had the video playing on the side on that exact same time. We're not saying it's not happening, but we're disregarding this rumor.

    For now, anyway.

    Tales of Zestiria was released in Japan on January 22, 2015, and will be releasedin North America and Europe sometime in the future. Oders are still available at the following shops:
