Fans of the Tales of series rejoice—Bandai Namco announced that this year’s festivities in the Tales of Festival 2017 will take place from June 2 through June 4 in Japan.
While the 20th anniversary of the Tales of series was back in 2015, this one will mark a special milestone for the Tales of Festival being the 10th anniversary for the event. The latest entry in the series Tales of Berseria was announced at the event from two years ago, and without an announcement of a new Tales of mothership title since then, there’s a good chance that we might see something at this year’s festival.
In addition to many talk programs, the event consists of numerous voice talents from throughout the series to join in on the fun with musical performances, live-action characters skits, and more.
Ticket information for its opening day on June 2 aren’t available yet, but the June 3 and June 4 tickets are available for the following prices:
- Premium Seat (Includes pamphlet and souvenir) – 13,500 yen
- SS Seat (Includes pamphlet) – 12,000 yen
- S Seat – 9,000 yen
- A Seat – 7,000 yen
You can get more info for purchasing tickets here.
And finally, Bandai Namco currently has a character popularity poll that will allow fans to vote from now through April 30 at 11:59pm JST to pick their favorite character from the series. In addition to the main popularity poll, they’re also taking votes for best mascot character, best villain character, and best “if I could reincarnate into any Tales of character.” There’s also one last category shaded out with “coming soon,” so we’ll probably hear about it sometime in the near future. In the meantime, you can cast your votes here, but you do need a Bandai Namco iD to do so.
