While one probably does not think of Bandai Namco’s Tales of franchise in the same vein as the classic Japanese RPGs like Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest, the reality is it’s a storied series all its own. The first game released all the way back in 1995 for the SNES/Super Famicom in Japan. Now, 25 years later, we’re getting a celebration.
As announced on the official website a 25th anniversary stream will happen live later this month. It will includes music from the games, as well as various Japanese voice actors who have lent their talents to the franchise alongside other guests. There will also be news on games, though there is no specifics given about what to expect there.
The latest entry in the series, Tales of Arise, was originally set to come out this year, but was pushed back to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A trademark for another, as of now unannounced, game called Tales Of Luminaria has also appeared in several regions. We’ll keep you updated on if anything about either title is featured.
