Never-Ending Story: Tales Of Zestiria Released

Bandai Namco have become pretty good about PC releases lately. The Japanese publisher’s ports are still usually a bit wonky, but they’re bringing more and more games our way. And coo, look at this: the PC release of RPG Tales of Zestiria [official site] is on the same day as its console versions. Today. It’s out today. Now. It’s out now. And yes, it is a bit wonky.

I’m even more delighted by the fashion of its protagonists. Look at them ↑ – they’re like the Steps to the Final Fantasy XV’s Son of Dork.

Tales of Zestiria is a big ole sprawling tale about kids saving the day, natch, with real-time battles and some swish anime cutscenes. Bandai Namco’s Tales series may not as well-known as Final Fantasy round these parts, but I hear it’s pretty good. I hear good things. I have not heard anything specific about Zestiria. This is as specific and helpful as I can be. Sorry. Perhaps this launch trailer is helpful?

But, of course, there are problems. A forum post lists known issues like crashes, a black screen, silent voiceovers, distorted text, stuttering, and more – though it does offer solutions and workarounds for a few of those problems. Supposedly a patch is coming, though it’s not clear how much it’ll fix.

Tales of Zestiria is £40 on Steam. Looking forward, 2003’s Tales of Symphonia is coming to PC next year too.

I feel bad about making that Son of Dork comparison; I really do think FFXV’s anime boyband fashion is amazing. Please announce a PC version, Squeenix. Ta.
