This year's 25th issue of Shueisha's Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Monday that Daisuke Ono (Neo Angelique Abyss, Noragami) will play a character named Dezel in Tales of Zestiria, Namco Bandai's newest installment in the Tales of series for the PlayStation 3. Daigo Okumura designed Dezel, a wind magic-using Heavenly Being who is also an outlaw. Although he is usually a lone wolf who hates communication with others, he has a passion for something burning in his heart. His weapon is a pendulum.

The magazine is also revealing that the battle system the game will be using will be titled, "Fusonic Chain-LMBS," with LMBS standing for "Linear Motion Battle System." The system will renew the franchise's real-time battle system, as well as add a gauge that lets characters freely battle as long as there is stock in it. By using the gauge, effects such as healing and blowing away the enemy will be usable.

The game is classified as an "RPG in which passion lights up the world," and the official tagline for the game will be, "Tradition will one day become 'hope.'"

Namco Bandai Studio's Daigo Okumura designed Aleesha, while Kousuke Fujishima designed Slay. Mutsumi Inomata is also returning to contribute character designs along with Minoru Iwamoto. The anime studio ufotable is once again contributing animation for cut scenes and the opening for the game under studio founder and producer Hikaru Kondo. Motoi Sakuraba and Gō Shiina are composing the soundtrack.

Namco Bandai Games will release the game on the PlayStation 3 worldwide.
