June 12, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

Confirming earlier leaks, Bandai Namco announced that Tales of Zestiria is coming to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC on October 16 in Europe and October 20 in North America.

With an unseen evil force known as Malevolence spreading across the land, corrupting the world and causing humanity to falter, here’s what you need to know about Tales of Zestiria:

Players will embark on an epic journey as Sorey, a young pure-hearted adventurer whose destiny is to become The Shepherd, an individual of great power that can banish Malevolence. Does Sorey have the courage and heart to wield this extraordinary responsibility for good, or will he fall prey to the evils of its power?

Tales of Zestiria introduces a new version of its celebrated real-time battle system, allowing for faster combat with side dashes and new combo opportunities with the fusion techniques. Throughout his quest, Sorey will befriend humans and spirits known as Seraphim, unseen to most humans, to aide him on his journey. Because of Sorey’s unique ability to communicate with the Seraphim he is able to fuse with their essence to create new elemental artes for strategic attacks to decimate foes.

As Bandai Namco adds, the PS4 and PC versions of Tales of Zestiria are exclusive to the West.
