Tales of Festival 2020 was expected to take place next month but fans will now have to wait until March 2021 as it’s been delayed due to COVID-19. Bandai Namco announced its delay on the Tales of series’ official website.
The Tales of Festival 2020 was originally set to take place on June 13 and June 14, 2020 at the Yokohama Arena, where the event has been held for many years. However, due to the ongoing situation with the global pandemic, Bandai Namco delayed the event to March 6 and March 7, 2021.
Bandai Namco will share more details for those who purchased tickets as well as hotel packages on a later date. However, those with tickets are suggested to hold onto it until details are announced in the near future. The team deeply apologizes for any inconvenience due to the delay and ask for your understanding and continued support.
It isn’t unusual for events in Japan to go through a lottery system for ticket sales, and Tales of Festivals isn’t an exception. That said, those who were able to get tickets won’t have to worry about going through the process again. Stay tuned for more information from Bandai Namco.
At Tales of Festival 2019 we got to see more of Tales of Arise with a trailer and a closer look at the main characters Alphen and Shionne. A lot of fans were expecting to see more of Tales of Arise from this year’s event, but we’ll likely hear more about it before the now-delayed Tales of Festival 2020.
Tales of Festival 2020 will take place on March 6-7, 201.
