Believe it or not, Tales of Zestiria is the fifteenth core title in the franchise. The series, for better or worse, has always had its share of colorful flare, eccentric characters, silly dialogue and ridiculous stories, and Zestiria isn’t holding back. For that matter, it’s expanding outward like no previous entry in the series. While the battle system is merely being tweaked and adjusted, for the first time there’s a stronger emphasis on exploration, featuring an open-world design.
Tales of Zestiria is currently under development at Bandai Namco. While a release date is unknown, western gamers shouldn’t expect to be playing until 2015. Watch the latest trailer below.
