Tales of Festival 2021 Main Visual Released, On-site Merchandise Sales to Use Numbered Tickets

Get ready for the Winter Party!

Tales of Festival 2021 is just a few weeks away! With the pandemic still here, some precautions regarding merchandise sales are necessary.

Confirmed last March, Tales of Festival 2021 is still happening this year on November 20 and 21, 2021. The venue has been changed from Yokohama Arena to Tokyo Garden Theater in the Tokyo Bay Area. The theme for this year is "Winter Party". Check out the updated main visual for the event, featuring the cast in their winter party clothes!

On-Site Sales

Aside from the pre-sales that were done via Asobi Store, on-site sales of merchandise will once again be done on the venue. However, unlike the 2019 or earlier Tales of Festival sales, Tales of Festival 2021 will be implementing a numbered ticket system.

Merchandise sales will be 10AM to 4:30PM JST for both days, but prior to this, numbered tickets will be distributed beginning 9AM to 9:30AM JST  for the first batch. These first batch of tickets will be given out at RANDOM. For example, even if you are the first in line, and there are, let's say 100 tickets, there is a chance you'll get the 100th ticket. Sale of merchandise will be by the number on your ticket.

Beginning 9:31AM onwards, if the first batch of tickets have already been used up, the remaining batches will be given in order instead of random. Do note that if the merchandise area isn't too crowded to begin with, numbered tickets may not be needed for that day.
