Excited for Tales of Festival 2017? Some of the official goods are now up for pre-order! In addition, the event will be available for live viewing in select cinemas in Japan!
Lalabit Market has put up some of the upcoming Tales of Festival 2017 merchandise for pre-order! Note that some items are actually only available for pre-selling and won't be at the actual event venue.
This year's Tales of Festival 2017 is celebrating its 10th anniversary since its inception. It'll be going for 3 days (June 2nd-4th) at the Yokohama Arena Main Hall. Day 1 of the event will include a special Tales of Stage event featuring actors as the Tales characters, while Days 2 and 3 will feature the usual stage with voice actors like in the previous Tales of Festivals and will be hosted by Masaya Onosaka (Zelos Wilder, Tales of Symphonia) and Rina Satou (Velvet Crowe, Tales of Berseria).
Check out the following merchandise for pre-order. Pre-selling period is from April 13th to April 30th. Again, these goods are available within Japan only, but if you use a proxy shopping service, they can buy them for you and ship them to you internationally for a small fee. We personally recommend FromJapan.
