Probably the closest we'll get to Tales characters as idols, aside from the iDOLM@ster collabs.
Announced during today's Tales of Festival 2020 Alternative live broadcast, a new project called "Tales of Dream Project" is in the works. This project is basically a series of songs related to Tales sung by various Tales voice actors.
Its first announced song, "Endless Journey", is an original song meant to be the theme song for Tales of Festival in general. The song was shown during today's live broadcast (check above to listen to it, starting at 34:46), and is performed by the Tales of Dreamers, which consist of:
