The official website for Bandai Namco Entertainment's Tales of Asteria mobile game began streaming a promotional video on Thursday for the game's upcoming sequel, Tales of Asteria -Hikari to Yami no Kyūseishu- (Tales of Asteria -Savior of Darkness and Light-). The trailer previews the game's opening movie, animated by Wit Studio, and also previews the game's theme song "Eternally" by Cream.
The game's cast will feature Takahiro Sakurai (Tales of Graces' Asbel), Akira Ishida (Tales of Eternia's Reid), Rika Morinaga (Tales of Vesperia's Rita), Chihiro Suzuki (Tales of the Abyss' Luke), Miyuki Sawashiro (Tales of Xillia's Milla), Hikaru Midorikawa (Tales of Destiny and Tales of Destiny 2's Leon Magnus/Judas), Kanae Itō (Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 2's Kanonno Earhart), and more to play their respective characters from the Tales of series.
The game will feature over 200 characters from the Tales of series of games, and will feature an all-new story from the Namco Tales Studio.
The game will allow players to explore the world of Asteria, gather allies, and engage in battles. The combat system allows players to connect attacks together to access their Mystic Artes. The game will also feature new cooperative battles, where players can join up with guildmates to fight stronger enemies.
Bandi Namco Entertainment plans to release the game this winter in Japan for iOS and Android.
Bandai Namco Games released the first Tales of Asteria game for Japanese smartphones in March with the theme song "believe in you" by Do as Infinity. The gameplay features a "cross swipe battle" system for rearranging characters to match attributes and a "tap action" system where players match timing with the characters' 3D models. The game is free-to-play with in-app purchases available.
