As one may have assumed, based upon the overall success of the franchise, Bandai Namco has announced that they are bringing the next Tales Of game to the European market. This time around, the tale will be one of another world, of a world known as Zestiria.
An unseen evil force known as Malevolence is spreading across the land, corrupting the world and causing humanity to falter. Players will embark on an epic journey as Sorey, a young pure-hearted adventurer whose destiny is to become The Shepard, an individual of great power that can banish Malevolence. Does Sorey have the courage and heart to wield this extraordinary responsibility for good, or will he fall prey to the evils of its power?
Introducing a new version of the traditional real-time battle system, Zestiria will feature faster combat, new combos, fusion techniques and the ability to side dash, granting some nice new variation. Based uppon his unique ability, Sorey is also able to create new elemental artes by fusing with the essence of the Seraphim he encounters. So look forward to some truly epic ways to bring down your foes.
Tales of Zestiria will hit shelves across Europe, Australasia and the Middle-East on PS3 and PS4 on October 16th, with a PC version available on October 20th.
