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.

Here's the teaser video for the game in its entirety:
