The lights are on
Namco Bandai recently confirmed that Tales of Xillia 2 will be the next Tales game heading to North America, but it it looks like the following Tales game may be called Tales of Zestiria.
A trademark was spotted by Siliconera on the trademarks and designs registration office of the European Union for Tales of Zestiria. Namco Bandai registers titles frequently for smaller Tales games, but the core Tales games typically get registered outside of Japan as well. This is why Tales of Zestiria's trademark is notable.
The last Tales game released in North America was Tales of Xillia (pictured above). You can check out our review for here.

Our TakeZestiria certainly sounds like a word that would fit comfortably behind the words 'Tales' and 'of'. We're a little behind here in North America on the Tales series, but Xillia 2 released in Japan November 2012. The timing feels about right for news of a new Tales game.

just bring them here!!! (oh, ps3 version of vesperia please.)
Guh, I really want to get Xillia right now but I just paid off the pre-order on Kingdom Hearts 1.5. Next game I'm getting is definitely Xillia, I had a blast with Graces F.
I hope it's localized
Still waiting Tales of Vesperia 2. A man can dream. Anyway it's great that more of series is coming up the US. I love these games.
Yet another awesome name for an awesome game that I won't be able to pronounce.
A pleasant enough name.
I'm intrigued as to what these games are, as they seem to be getting a lot of praise.
Not a fan of the anime art style, though. Maybe this isn't for me.
Hey its peeeersona 5!... guys, stop posting articles altogether until persona 5 gets announced.
I'm really hoping for this addition to the Tales series will come to the Western shores in the near future. ^_^
