Tales of Zestiria Gets Costume DLC

In case you need more costumes in your RPG, Tales of Zestiria will have you covered with postlaunch DLC, Bandai Namco revealed recently. Costume bundles include “Academy Costumes” – school outfits, basically – and both outfits and hairdos from my long-standing weakness, The Idolmaster.

(No Makoto, no sale.)

Anyway, Zestiria hits the PS3 in Japan on January 22, with North America and Europe to follow sometime in summer of 2015.

Tales of Zestiria Planned for Shorter Regional Release Interval

Bandai Namco’s Dennis Lee, global brand manager for the Tales series, stated that Tales of Zestiria will launch for both Japan and the west in the same year. Speaking at an E3 Interview, he said that “We’ve gone from over two years with Xillia 1, and now we’ve gotten it down to a year, and we’re going to get it to less than that for Tales of Zestiria—it’s going to be in the same year as the Japanese release. So they’re working on shrinking that time down as much as possible.”

A timeframe for either release has yet to be announced.
