The anime itself was announced as part of the franchise’s 20th anniversary. Here is the announcement promotional video of the upcoming anime:
The Tales of. started in 1995 with the release of Tales of Phantasia on the Super Famicom (SNES). The game was developed by Wolf Team, who are now known as Namco Tales Studio and published by Namco. The game received a positive reception and has allowed more games in the series to be developed. To date, there are fourteen games in the main series with over 10 spin-off titles. While the Tales of. enjoys high sales within Japan, the popularity of the series overseas has been rocky. Though, in the last decade the series has been gaining more popularity outside of Japan. There are also four anime series based on separate entries in the series, as well as an animated film, Tales of Vesperia: The First Strike, released in 2009. To date, Namco Bandai has announced that the series has sold over 15 million titles.
The Tales of Zestiria the X anime will be broadcasting throughout 2016. The game itself is currently available on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and on PC via Steam. Further information about the anime will be revealed in the upcoming months.
