During the ongoing NicoNico Super Meeting 3 this weekend, Bandai Namco held a special stage, where they showcased the latest trailer for Tales of Zestiria. It provides a closer look at the recently revealed character Laila and more.
The trailer starts out with a narrator stating that humans are too powerless, and when times are at a loss, people will pray for the appearance of a Monk (or Doshi). Tales of Zestiria will be telling the “story of the Monks” that takes place in the “era of disasters”.
During the trailer, the protagonist Slay also mentions that he dreams of finding a way that allows humans and those of the Heavenly Tribe to happily live together, similar to the days of the “legendary era”.
We also get to see Slay, who is about to pull out the holy sword, state that he is ready to become a Monk. Before doing so, Laila warns him that it would mean he shall become her vessel and will have to carry the fate on his back.
Slay confidently responds by saying that he believes the dream he’s chasing might be a way to save mankind and the Heavenly Tribe, and if that’s the case, he’ll become a Monk.
Tales of Zestiria is currently in development for PlayStation 3.
