Tales of Zestiria Ad Unveils Superfly Theme Song

posted on by Sarah Nelkin
PS3 game with "Limited Premium Hidden Artes," 1 of 4 rubber straps for pre-order bonuses ships on January 22 in Japan

A television commercial began airing in Japan for Bandai Namco Games' Tales of Zestiria PlayStation 3 game on Saturday. The commercial reveals that the title of Superfly's theme song for the game will be, "White Light."

Sorey: I need to go.
Lailah: Sorey...
Mikleo: I'm against this.
Rosé: I'll do something about it!
Lailah: To think it's this impure...
Sorey: I will! I will take on this destiny!!
Text: Tradition will one day become 'hope.'

The commercial also reveals that the bonuses for pre-ordering the game will be a product code to download a "Limited Premium Hidden Artes," as well as one of four premium rubber straps designed to look like Sorey, Mikleo, Alisha, and Edna. The game will sell for the suggested retail price of 8,070 yen (about US$80).

The game is classified as an "RPG where passion lights up the world," and the official tagline for the game is "Tradition will one day become 'hope.'" Bandai Namco Games will release the game on January 22, 2015.

The full battle system, titled "Fusonic Chain-LMBS" (with LMBS standing for "Linear Motion Battle System), renews the franchise's real-time battle system, and adds 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 will also include a new battle feature called "Kamui" that allows for a human and a heavenly being to fuse. In the game, Sorey will be able to fuse with Heavenly Beings such as Lailah, changing his form and allowing him to use Lailah's attributes to attack.

Namco Bandai Studio's Daigo Okumura designed the character Alisha, while Kousuke Fujishima designed Sorey. 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, and Superfly is performing the game's theme song. An anime special inspired by the game is set to premiere before the game is released.

Update: Embedded official video from Bandai Namco Games.
