    >> New Tales of Zestiria Scan - Sorey's Other Kamui Mode Fusions, Partner Change System and Normin


    The latest issue of Jump Magazine finally reveals the other Kamui Mode fusions Sorey has with the other Divine characters, along with new field and battle features.

    The magazine first introduces a new Partner Change System, which allows you to change your partner Divine at any given time, even from those who are not within the current battle.

    • Kamui Mode with Lailah - As seen before, fusion with Lailah allows Sorey to weild a giant sword that produces flames, allowing you to mow down the enemy with a single slash.

    • Kamui Mode with Mikleo - Allows Sorey to weild an elegant bow and arrow. It allows for long-ranges, even vertically, and lets you strike all enemies at once.

    • Kamui Mode with Edna - Allows Sorey incredible power with his fists. They're not just for hitting enemies, but also for making pillars of earth emerge from the ground to damage enemies.

    • Kamui Mode with Dezel - Allows Sorey to take to the air with wings made of swords. Enemies are at the mercy of tornadoes. After 3 combos, the swords transform into huge wings.

    If you'll notice, the magazine also uses what seems to be the characters' status artwork.

    The stuffed doll Normin we see on Edna is actually a doll of a Divine creature also called, well, Normin. Throughout the journey, the party will encounter these creatures. Helping them out will apparently grant some special benefits.

    There's also a new (NPC?) character shown in the magazine, at the lower left. His name is Sergei (serugei, romanization not yet official), a leader of the knights from the Lowlance Empire. He apparently will be an enemy to Sorey and the rest?

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

    >> See How Seamless Battles Work In Tales of Zestiria, Plus Mikleo and Lailah Videos


    The scheduled Tales of Zestiria Nico Nico Douga Live Stream Event finally showed how seamless transitions in between field and battles work, along with a new short trailer showing the game's characters.

    The "transition" shows the field character (in this video, Sorey) stepping back off screen as he comes into contact with the enemy. In a wave of faint light, the other accompanying enemies appear, and the camera zooms out to show Sorey and the other party members. This is followed by the character icons appearing.

    The character videos of Mikleo and Lailah show a bit about their roles in the game's story. Mikleo is an all-around friend to Sorey, while we see a bit of Lailah's enthusiasm with the world and her perception of Sorey.

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

    >> Tales of Zestiria's Character Names In Japan Are Also The Localized Names


    Bandai Namco Games America has confirmed with us that those released names of the Tales of Zestiria characters up in the Japanese website are the same ones to be used for the game's localized version.

    People have been having... mixed reviews regarding the official names of the Tales of Zestiria characters. We've been getting messages and questions left and right about the names, so here's to clarify things:

    1.) The names we've been using before (Slay, Alicia, Mikulio, Lyla, etc.) were all names we guessed based on the katakana and romaji of the Japanese names. The new names that were released on Dengeki PlayStation and the Japanese official website (Sorey, Alisha, Mikleo, Lailah) are official.

    2.) Since people have also been asking us, we asked Bandai Namco Games America whether or not the new names are also the ones to be used in the localized game. They answered that yes, the new names (Sorey, Alisha, etc.) will be the names to be used for the localized English version of the game.

    This hopefully answers everyone's questions regarding the matter.

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

    >> Tales Figures of Lloyd, Sorey and Alisha Will Be At The Summer Wonder Festival 2014


    Prototypes of Tales figures of Lloyd, Sorey and Alisha will be exhibited at the upcoming Summer Wonder Festival 2014 this July 27, 2014.

    @tales_ch has also posted pictures of what seem to be the latest of the prototypes. You'll note a few changes and touch ups to the figures, especially for Lloyd's. The Tales Chan Twitter also noted that there will be a sort of announcement by Alter at their booth, so this could possibly be... a new figure, perhaps?

    The Tales of Symphonia Lloyd Irving figure and the Tales of Zestiria Alisha figure are both by Alter, while the Tales of Zestiria Sorey figure is by Kotobukiya. We first saw a glimpse of the Lloyd prototype last Tales of Festival 2014, with the Sorey and Alisha figures also revealed during the event.

    >> New Tales of Zestiria Screenshots - Maltran, Real Map System and Anime Scenes


    A bunch of new Tales of Zestiria screenshots are now online, featuring new characters Maltran and Bartlow, the Real Map System and some of the game's animated cutscenes.

    But before that, the Tales of Zestiria official Japanese website has been updated today with the proper character name spellings. They're the same as the one from Dengeki yesterday, save for Arisha, which is now Alisha. Since this is from the official site, we'll follow this for now until the localized names come out. Official spellings for the latest two characters are Maltran and Bartlow.


    This is the official name spelling according to the website.


    More On The Game's Story

    Despite the fact that people seek the Priest as their savior in times of need, such as during an era of calamity, Sorey's display of power as the Priest brought not hope, but only fear among the populace. For an ordinary person with no power, seeing power like that of the Priest makes them see it as something not normal, something akin to the Hyouma monsters.

    Lailah holds a personal pledge that grants her special power via a rite. Should she come across power greater than her own ability, the rule of it is broken and it becomes a double-edged sword that results in a dreadful recoil. She apparently uses this pledge to exorcise the unclean using her Purifying Flame. It is unknown what the specific rule of the pledge is, and seems to be related to her past. When the topic is brought up, Lailah starts acting extremely odd and just changes the subject.

    New Area: Trisizol Cave

    An underground cave said to be at the edge of the Greenwood continent. The place is made up of crystallized pillars, shrouding the entire place in a wondrous blue glow. It is believed that the crystals accumulated light throughout time, but the truth is unknown. The wonder of this place has brought forth many poems and songs about its beauty.

    New Area: Folquen Hills

    A group of hills at the base of the sacred mountain of Reiforc. The constant rainfall all year round brings forth greenery in the place, and a river called Gryphlet river divides the area into two. Though the river may sometimes overflow and cause flash floods, it also acts as a sort of final defense barrier of the Highland Kingdom as a natural moat.

    Map Actions

    Sword Swing - Sorey can use his sword to break branches and other things.

    Silver Flame - Using Lailah's power, the player can create flames that may be used as a gimmick in dungeons.

    Spirit Mist Robe - Using Mikleo's power, the player can become temporarily invisible from the enemy's eyes, but movement speed decreases as compensation.

    Chief's Arm - Using Edna's power, the player is able to break various rocks that may be blocking potential roads.

    Using Dezel's power, the player can use the wind to go across areas that are considerably apart.

    Accompanying Character

    Apparently you only choose one character to accompany you in this situation.

    Real Map Battle

    Lailah's Mystic Arte: Enbu Rengekiha

    Animated Cutscenes by ufotable

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

    >> Tales of Kizna and Tales of Card Evolve To Terminate Services This September


    Bandai Namco has announced today that, unfortunately, both long-running mobile card games Tales of Kizna and Tales of Card Evolve will be terminating its services this September.

    Bad news for those who play Tales of Kizna and Tales of Card Evolve... and bad news for us who really love the cards. Tales of Kizna's service will end on September 25, 2014 while Tales of Card Evolve's will end on September 30, 2014.

    Tales of Kizna was announced way back in October 2011 and was then released November 2011, while Tales of Card Evolve was initially announced during Tales of Festival 2012 and was then launched on September 11 of that same year. Since then, the game has been known to deliver beautiful cards of the various Tales characters and some in-game scenes courtesy of WIT Studio (Attack on Titan). The game also even has a visual art book.

    With their services ending, we'll then be getting more time to complete our gallery of the cards for both games. We have a (not so updated) gallery for Kizna and Card Evolve.

    >> Tales of Zestiria Character Name Spellings According To Dengeki PlayStation


    Magazine scans from Dengeki PlayStation Magazine finally reveal what seem to be the proper English names and spellings for the characters of Tales of Zestiria.

    There you have it. So, to update on how we've been calling them, Slay is now Sorey, Alicia is now Arisha, Mikulio is now Mikleo, Lyla is now Lailah, Zabida is now Zaveid, Edna and Dezel are... still Ednaand Dezel. Since these are pretty much official from Japan, we'll probably be following these from now on. We already got Sorey from one of the English-subbed trailers shown during Japan Expo in Europe and Anime Expo in the US. The rest are pretty much new to us.

    Thanks to @kincorda from Twitter for the scans!

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