Again, this is all a confusing matter but for now we're still labeling this all as a rumor.
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.
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 retailerNedGame 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.
