The next Tales game marks the franchise's 20th anniversary. It's a PS3 exclusive. And it's titled Tales of Zestiria.

As Namco Bandai explains, the word "zest" in the title refers to "passion" or "zeal." Or, well, zest!

The game features four character designers: Mutsumi Inomata, Kosuke Fujishima, Daigo Okumura, and Minoru Iwamoto, and it will feature a hero, a heroine, and dragons. Yes, dragons.

DISCUSSION

I really want to be excited for this but after Xillia I can't help but not be excited for it. I really liked the combo/dual artes system in Xillia, much improved over the other games, but I found the game pretty forgettable overall in terms of story and characters (except Alvin!). Graces F still sitting on my shelf (cannot get into it at all :\), not played Symphonia yet but will be getting the PS3 release next year! :D And then Xillia 2 I suppose but I probably won't get it at all if not for a while.
