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 Take
Zestiria 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.
