Alongside yesterday's announcement for Tales of Berseria, Bandai Namco has also announced a new Tales of anime.

You can check out a teaser trailer below for the anime which is being handled by Ufotable. Ufotable has handled the anime scenes for the Tales games since the first Tales of Xilia, which released in Japan in 2011.

Based on the trailer and website, the anime seems to focus on Tales of Zestiria, which is planned for release in North America some time this year. Not many other details are known.

This is not the first anime to be based on a Tales game. Tales of Eternia, Phantasia, Symphonia, the Abyss, and Vesperia all saw animated adaptations.

Our Take
I'm frankly surprised that every Tales games doesn't receive an anime adaptation, considering how popular the series is in Japan.
