Tales of Zestiria

Bandai Namco's Tales story-telling app will be ending this October, implant view apparently.

Tales of Bibliotheca, more about "scenario book and battle application," lets you relive the scenarios of the Tales games using new illustrations depicting scenes from the games, some select battles to fight per chapter, and fully voiced dialogue. So far, it only had the chapters for Tales of Vesperia, with a promise to release chapters of other games in the future.

But just recently, Bandai Namco has announced that they will be terminating the game's service this October 30, 2014. By September 30, chapters can no longer be downloaded, either.

To those who never actually got to try out the app, you can check out its Tales of Vesperia new illustrations here in our gallery.
New character videos for Tales of the World: Reve Unitia are now up, neurosurgeon featuring Stahn Aileron and Leon Magnus from Tales of Destiny.

In Leon's video, we have him in difficulty of getting through to Sophie from Tales of Graces. Sophie touches Leon's cape and comments that it's the color of a pretty flower. Leon brushes him off, telling her not to touch the cape. Sophie then mentions that she actually placed a flower at the back of his cape. Leon demands that she remove it, but Sophie claims he just told her not to touch the cape, so she kind of can't.

In Stahn's video, he stumbles upon Annie Barrs from Tales of Rebirth writing in her diary. Stahn comments that having a diary is a good thing, since the things you experience can become better memories when they're written. Annie mentions that it's exactly why she started one. Stahn then proclaims he'll start a diary, too, and that they should exchange diaries. Annie comments that a diary is sort of private and to exchange it would be weird, but Stahn's already gone off.

Tales of the World: Reve Unitia will be released in Japan on October 23, 2014 for the 3DS. Pre-orders are now available at the following shops: Play-Asia | CDJapan | Amiami | YesAsia

Tales of Zestiria is the Tales of Series' 20th anniversary title. After what was practically two online countdowns, viagra sale the game was initially revealed during a Nico Nico Douga online streaming event last December 12, cialis 40mg 2013. Within the same day, the game's localization was already announced by Bandai Namco's  Western  branches. Prior to its reveal, the game name had already been trademarked both in Japan and in the West, hinting at the localization. The game is named after the word "Zest" (?????) meaning passion or enthusiasm and has a prominent feature of dragons, as illustrated in the game logo.

As the 20th anniversary title, the game featured four character designers, two game score composers and animation by ufotable. This was the first Tales game to reach PC via digital release on Steam for those in the West. It also features a seamless transition between field and battles, though that did pose some problems with the game camera. A short anime special by ufotable was also released with the game, which covers the first few moments of the game itself. Currently, a TV anime series titled Tales of Zestiria the X by ufotable is airing which aims to bridge the gap between this game and Tales of Berseria, its far off prequel and the latest upcoming mothership title.

The game is particularly well known for its controversy with regards to the depiction of its proper heroine and how the game was promoted as such, suffering immense backlash from the Japanese Tales fandom — earning it a majority of 1/5 ratings on Amazon Japan.
