PostSubject: Tales of Zestiria (PS3) Speculation/News (Pre-Release)   Sun Feb 02, 2014 8:27 pm



Release: 2015 (JP)

Confirmed for Localization!!

["An RPG where passion lights up the world"]
       Tradition will one day become 'hope'

Website: http://toz.tales-ch.jp/

Known info:

Game Mechanics and General Info
-20th Anniversary title
- Zestiria refers to Zest, it will be a story of passion
- Dragons will play a prominent role but the role is unknown
-Its mentioned in a Famitsu scan that Slay "may have more clothing than he can wear" and normal clothes may be customizable as Slay is shown without his cape in screenshots (Famitsu/AC)
- Go Shiina is back to compose tracks (YEY!!!!)

Geography:

- Two Kingdoms: Kingdom of Highland and Empire of Lowlance on the continent of Greenwood (AC)
Highland:
"Highland is a beautiful country abundant in greenery and water, with a large part of it being made up of mountains and plateaus. Initially, its culture was influenced by old-fashioned and traditional beliefs from long ago, but currently, the people in this land have their own various beliefs, and the traditional ones have started to fade away. Currently, its political power is not with the royalty or the nobles, but within the hands of the bureaucracy under the name of the king. Alicia is from this country." (Directly from AC)

Lowlance:
"A great empire that rules over the most area of land in Greenwood. Majority of its land are of fertile plains, with its great military force that works as its foundation. Its capital is a metropolitan city that boasts the largest civilization within the continent, but development for the farther, border areas are delayed, thereby having a big difference in the civilization within the main city and those outside of it. Before, it was mainly the Emperor that held all of the political power, but currently, it is the Lowlance Church which boasts of its traditional values, has also been influencing politics aside from spiritual matters." (Directly from AC)
- Greenwood is very diverse in terms of climate, the civilization is rather young, ~thousand years and there are ruins of a much older civilization around the continent (AC)

Mythos:
- Various high impact religious beliefs, all contain the Tenzoku/Divine People, who are regarded in various ways (AC)
- The Divine are unseen, however some people have the ability to see/communicate with them and came to be called Priests (AC)
- The priests have "pure minds and bodies" and form contracts with the Divine to dwell within their bodies, people sometimes consider the Priests to be either Gods or Devils (AC)
- Hyouma are born from the ill thoughts of humans (ie Greed or Lust) and transform regular animals/monsters into demonic beings. These are what prey on Slay. (Famistu/AC)
- Areas can become Unclean, when they are Unclean/Tainted they seem to appear darker in appearance and this acts as a poison to the Divine. These areas are created in the same way as Hyouma. (Famistu/AC)

Characters:

Slay: Voice: Ryouhei Kimura


Designer: Kosuke Fujishima
Height: 175 cm
Weapon: One-handed Ceremonial Sword
Info: "Slay had started to become interested in ancient ruins when he came upon The Divine Records by chance when he was just a child. Ever since then, he had held onto the things about the ancient culture to the point of romanticism and even making it part of his big dream. He has a kind heart and he always looks at things positively and wears an honest expression. Though he appears as an overly sweet guy on the surface, that pure and positive personality of his is actually his charm that attracts those around him." (Straight from AC) Slay can see the Divine and is best friends with Mikulio. He has high spiritual powers and has been protected in the Forest of the Divine since birth because this makes him highly susceptible to attack from the Hyouma in the world.

Alicia: Voice: Ai Kayano


Designer: Daigo Okumura
Height: 161 cm
Weapon: Long Spear
Info: "A princess of the Highland Kingdom who is farthest from inheriting the throne. She was originally a lady with a bright and cheerful personality, but she has chosen to serve her country as a mere knight and not as a princess, and took on a strict and masculine way of speaking. Since her mother is of low social status, she was treated badly by the royalty, to the point that she feels uneasy around the ministers in the Kingdom that hold the power." (Info straight from AC) She cannot see Mikulio.

Mikulio: Voice: Ryouta Ohsaka


Designer: Mutsumi Inomata
Height: 165 cm
Weapon: Long Staff
Element: Water
Info: "Mikulio is Slay's/Thray's best friend who is in fact, one of the Divine. He is Slay's childhood friend and also his rival, and is calm and composed guy as compared to Slay. Since Mikulio is one of the Divine, he is actually invisible to normal people, and only Slay can see him. His artes seem to be focused on water."(Straight from AC)

Edna: Voice: Misato Fukuen


Designer: Minoru Iwamoto
Height: 145 cm
Weapon: Umbrella
Element: Earth
Info:"Edna's outer sweet appearance is a stark contrast from her somewhat robotic and mature personality. Though she loves to tease people with her wicked words, perhaps this could actually be her own longing to be with other people? Despite being always calm, she tends to lose herself when it's about her older brother, her only living family, and she then becomes emotional. The little mascot thing hanging from her umbrella is Normin ( ノルミン, norumin ), but as to why she has it, that might take a long conversation." Edna is a Divine Being/Tenzoku. (From AC)

Lyla: Voice: Miyu Matsuki

[Picture to come]

Designer: Mutsumi Inomata
Height: 172 cm
Weapon: Papers/Pages
Element: Fire
Info: A Divine with the element of Fire. She has awaited someone like Slay who can see her with a pure heart to bestow upon them the powers and way of a Priest. She is the one to guide him on his journey to become a Priest. She is described as an adult woman who "is able to give precise advice, though at times, she can also be a little reckless with her strange and wild ideas." She wants Slay to become her vessel through a contract and in turn he will obtain special power. They meet by chance at a festival of some sort. (From AC/Weekly Shonen Jump)

We haven't really gotten any new info since Famitsu back in December have we? When does Tales related info usually come out? If I remember it was usually monthly with Graces and Xillia.

At the end of each month apparently

They started up a thing called I love Tales of. From what I can read they'll be releasing information at the end of each month. The stuff for last month on the second page is just a recap of everything we already know

After TOX and its use of HOs and not BCs equivalent to TOG have no intentions of playing anything new especially when the battle system for this is fan based instead of something official from Namco.I'll pass for now

Famitsu for the next month usually leaks around the middle of the previous month right? Or is released? I wonder if we'll get anything in the March issue ;3

Because they now have the budget to do it, and the demand for Tales in the west is now a lot higher than it was before, so it now can be done and still turn out a profit.

Also, dude, this is Radge. Welcome back! lol.

The Tsundeer shines on! I know you lurve/loathe me.

Anyways, they're being tight-lipped with Zestiria. I am hoping Zesty might bring back that lost spark I had with the series.

Not too bad. He gives off the usual cold, young, prodigy feeling.

Do you think he'll use his staff like Leia or for healing?

I also have to wonder how the whole being invisible to most people thing will work out for him.
