The studio ufotable already produced the Tales of Zestiria: Dōshi no Yoake television anime special for Bandai Namco Entertainment's Tales of Zestiria game in December 2014, before the game shipped in Japan on January 22.
Other Tales of anime include the Tales of Eternia television anime series, the Tales of Phantasia video anime series, Tales of the Abyss television anime series, the Tales of Vesperia: The First Strike film, and the Tales of Symphonia the Animation video anime series.
The animeanime.jp website initially reported in June that the anime is an adaptation of Tales of Zestiria, but it updated its article so that it only states that it is an adaptation of the Tales of franchise. Until Tuesday, Bandai Namco Entertainment had also characterized the anime as a Tales of project, and not an adaptation of Tales of Zestiria specifically.
