A magazine reports that Tales of the Abyss's Jade Curtiss will be appearing in Tales of Zestiria, plus here are the prices and the release schedule of the DLC costumes previously announced.
We've now added scans from Famitsu courtesy of @ExeForce87. The scan shows that Jade Curtiss from Tales of the Abyss will indeed be appearing in Tales of Zestiria somehow. There is a screenshot of him in battle shown in the magazine (as an enemy), but it seems that the feel of the area isn't the arena. This may perhaps hint that his cameo occurs elsewhere.
It's mentioned in the magazine that Jade somehow is lost in the world of Zestiria. He cannot see the hellions, so fighting is difficult for him. It wasn't mentioned whether or not he'll join the party or whether he's in the coliseum.
Note that Tales of the Abyss is also celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, as the game was released in Japan last December 15, 2005. In addition, one of the characters in the game, Lunarre, is voiced by Takehito Koyasu, the same voice actor who voices Jade in the Japanese version of Tales of the Abyss.
In addition, Famitsu has also released the schedule of release for some of the previously announced DLC costumes.
Evangelion Costumes - January 22, 2015 - 500 Yen each
And lastly, the January 22 issue of Weekly Famitsu magazine will include DLC code for a Mecha Asbel attachment.
Note that the above DLC info is for the game's Japanese version. This post will be updated once scans are out.
