Bandai Namco uploaded the second Tales of Zestiria trailer. It’s the same trailer originally broadcasted on NicoNico, but it’s a crisper clip.


The video shows Slay, the protagonist in Tales of Zestiria, who dreams of unity between humans and the Heavenly Tribe. Check our previous coverage for a detailed look at what’s going on in the trailer.


Tales of Zestiria is in development for PlayStation 3 and has been confirmed for a Western release.

    did he always have those feather earrings? i’ve never noticed them before

    • Raymond

      yea he’s had them.
      unless they added more.

    • Firekitty

      Yeah, they’ve been there from the start.

      I don’t dislike them, but they look REALLY weird paired with such short hair @[email protected]

    • gulabjamal

      That’s like the Only thing I noticed from before. But thankfully I’ve gotten used to them now

    • The power of HD lol

    • kaotron

      yeah, besides his generic shonen-ish look the main thing I don’t like about his design are all the feather accessories and that poncho/cape thingy he wears..

      • Detrimont

        i never said i didn’t like them, i just never noticed them

  • TheGioG

    What a colorful looking cast of characters, I’ll definitely have my eye out on this game as its release draws near. Slay’s reaction suits the fact that my dirt-poor ass is still taking its sweet time on that PS3 purchase…
    “Say whaaaa?!”

  • Charmchar

    If it wasn’t for the combat i honestly wouldn’t think this was a tale of game, it just feels more like a different series to me. That being said I can’t wait to play it. 。◕‿◕。

  • Erde

    The characters look oddly plasticy to me. Am I the only one who thinks they look odd? Kinda like that Star Ocean game for X360.

    • SupaPhly

      yes! finally someone else besides me who thinks it looks like that star ocean game :P

      • M’iau M’iaut

        Traditional cell characters certainly do not always transfer well to 3D. Funny, since Namco has known which look folks prefer since the original Hearts was released with those two different versions.

        • Anime10121

          Still sad they refuse to utilize cel shading anymore which I thought was PERFECT for the series :(

      • Slayven19

        You were never the first to think that, people were making the comparison(Even on this very site) since day 1.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Damn. That battle system looks pretty sweet! :D

  • Pre-ordered my copy the other day

  • Kornelious

    EVERYTHING IS BETTER IN HD! Especially Tales lol :P

  • fairysun

    The battle system looks awesome!!

  • Demeanor

    I wonder what will he be able to do as a “Doushi”… maybe something like Reid’s Divine Aurora? Or a dragon “stand”? Or become a real dragoon? :P

    • Samsara09

      Well,he will have in his hands the power of the tenzoku(family of heaven) of water,fire,earth and wind…so it is something impressive

    • DyLaN

      I think its mentioned somewhere that he can use “Heavenly Fonic Arts” once he became a “Doushi”.

  • Monterossa

    That guy stole feather earrings from Rikku.

  • God

    I said it once and i will say it twice, Miclio looks like he is gonna be a real Bro, i’d say he is deserving of a “Stinson seal of approval”!

  • Chiupon

    Alicia doesn’t seem to be really focused on at all — she probably dies. Calling it.

  • Siberiansi

    Wow…The blue clothed person is a guy. I thought for sure it was a girl.

    And Edna looks awesome so far.

  • Kai2591

    Very nice.
    Very nice indeed.

    Also, dat ponytail.
    Laila’s ponytail is so frikkin looooong. I like :)

    So are the battles not instanced?

  • HerosLight

    E3 can’t come faster.

    That is if they will show the game there.

    • Anime10121

      Doubt it’ll be at E3, though it will definitely be at Tales of Festival right around the same time!

      • HerosLight

        Oh you’re right. Forgot about that!

  • KrazyBean

    The battle system looks like a fusion of Graces and Xillia. I like.

  • MrJechgo

    Tales + PS3 + English release = instant buy

    Don’t think I need to watch trailers, because that’s probably the only JRPG series that deserves more love in the West.

  • Spirit Macardi

    I really don’t have a problem with the graphics style of this game, since everything is still stylized and colorful and clearly isn’t going for “realistic” so much as “more detailed.” Honestly the look is kind of reminding me of LoZ: Skyward Sword, which isn’t a bad thing.

    I’m just wondering what RPG trope/cliche they’re going to take the sledgehammer to in this entry.

  • Anihilator

    Sorry, no PS3 anymore. I think PS4-version, be too… Later

  • Guest

    Day one here (the english version, of course).
    Likely the last Tales of in 7th gen. But the next one will not be so great graphicaly, i think.
    But i dont care. I like Tales for be tales a ingenous and last bastion of JRPG. Graphics goodloooking like FFXIII and a shit story and gameplay cn go to hell by me.

    To be true, i dont care!
    I like Tales for be tales; a ingenous and last bastion of JRPGs.
    Graphics like FFXIII, no content and shit gameplay can go to hell by me.

  • Sergio Macellaro

    Since ToHr will come, we can dream with ToInr too, no?

  • Anthony Birken

    Well…they confirmed West release already, so I don’t need to get jap (since it’s been happening with the last few gens), Tales could shut up and take my money anytime (Can’t touch that Yuri & Flynn duo though)
