The newly-shown costumes range from throwbacks to previous Tales games, including Tales of Vesperia and Tales of Graces f, to crossovers with completely different franchises, like Sengoku Basara and anime Blue Exorcist.
Check out the screenshots below:
No price has been given yet for the costumes, but if Bandai Namco follows the trend of their previous releases that had such DLC, you can expect the costumes to run $0.99-$2.99.
Tales of Zestiria launches in Japan on January 22, 2015, exclusively on PlayStation 3. While a Western release has been confirmed, there is no solid date. Expect it sometime late in 2015.
As much as I love Tales of Symphonia (it’s probably my favorite game ever), I’ve never been able to finish another Tales game. This entry has me intrigued, but I’m a little confused and concerned as to why Bandai Namco would announce DLC costumes for a game that hasn’t been released yet. My biggest concern now is the lack of non-DLC costumes. In Symphonia, costumes weren’t bought as DLC and were instead unlocked through random events that only the most hardcore completionists would find. I just hope Bandai Namco isn’t cheapening the value of finding those special moments and still includes plenty of other costumes to be unlocked for free.
