Today Bandai Namco shared quite a lot of new information and even some gameplay of the upcoming JRPG Tales of Crestoria.
Tales of Crestoria is coming to iOS and Android with a beta in early May and a release scheduled for June.
First of all, we get a general introduction for those who have missed previous news about the game.
You can unlock three main characters simply by playing the story, but they’ll be their SR version.
By using the summoning feature (basically gacha) you can obtain Memoria Stones that will let you unlock the SSR version of characters which have their own Mystic Artes.
We then learn more about multiplayer battles.
Next is information on the Break Gauge.
Next is a gameplay video showing raids in action.
The Tales of History feature lets you find information on characters and games of the franchise.
We also take a look at the inevitable mascot character Meakyu.
Lastly, a message from producer Tomomi Tagawa confirms the early June release window and teases upcoming character movies.
If you want to see more of Tales of Crestoria, you can watch the latest trailer, another promotional video, the previous clip, and the extended reveal trailer featuring a collaboration between animation studio Kamikaze Douga, which recently worked on Batman Ninja, and DJ Yasutaka Nakata.
The game is coming for iOS and Android. It was supposed to come in 2019, but it was delayed back in October. We recently learned that it’ll launch worldwide in early June, following a beta in early May.
Incidentally, Tales of Crestoria will be the first Tales game to release simultaneously worldwide.
If you lean more toward console games, another game of the series is in development titled “Tales of Arise” for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, but we haven’t heard anything new about it for quite a while. We do know that it’s supposed to come this year.
