Tales of Zestiria - Subevents and Arena, School Uniform and iDOLM@STER DLC Costumes, Zaveid Possibly Playable

The latest issue of Famitsu apparently reveals school uniform and iDOLM@STER DLC costumes for the cast of Tales of Zestiria. This includes Zaveid, hinting that he's most probably playable.

The said school costumes contain a hairdo, clothes and attachment set for all 8 characters, including Zaveid and Rose. The costumes are:

  • Sorey - Humanities Student
  • Alisha - Books Committee Member
  • Mikleo - Going Home Club Member
  • Edna - Everyone's Respected Senpai
  • Rose - Captain Girl
  • Dezel - Math Teacher
  • Zaveid - Former Gangster Turned Guidance Counselor
  • Lailah - School Principal


The iDOLM@STER costumes are, obviously, only for the girls. The BGM changes with them equipped and so do intro lines when entering battle. The costumes are:

I think most of us already believe that Rose is most probably playable, given that she has an Evangelion costume and the nature of how she's portrayed in trailers (i.e. in a non-antagonistic way). As for Zaveid, most of us still aren't sure about him being playable, given that he's mostly shown as sort of a bad guy in the past trailers. Seeing as he's even got a DLC costume now (along with some official art showing him just hanging around with the party), this raises the possibility of him being playable.

Famitsu also delves more into the Subevents feature introduced in our last post, and also reveals an Arena for the game. For Subevents, they can be triggered by talking with characters that have a star ( ? ) mark above them. The map will also indicate a character that would have a subevent, making it easier.

We have no scans as of yet, but we'll update this post as soon as they're available.

Tales of Zestiria will be released in Japan on January 22, 2015, and in North America and Europe sometime in the future. Pre-orders are now available at the following shops:
