Last-gen is the way to go for the best Tales of Zestiria deal

I reviewed the PS4 version of Tales of Zestiria recently and found the graphical difference between it and it's PS3 sibling to be marginal, so why not save yourself a tidy sum by dusting off the PS3 for the last-gen version? No? I've included the best PS4 price too then.

Here the short version of my Tales of Zestiria reviewTales of Zestiria is passable in most departments, but it makes no real effort to excel at anything. The combat and visuals aren't aging well and the story and characters are clichéd, even for a JRPG. There's some fun to be found fusing equipment, but overall the series needs to up its game.

Tales of Zestiria down to £19.95 on PS4

Black Friday is off to a booming start by smashing a fiver off a deal I posted yesterday afternoon. Let's hope we see more of this. Sure the PS4 version only looks a little better than its PS3 sibling, but they're the same price now. So go next-gen yeah?

Tales of Zestiria Review - Needs more 'Zest'

Tales of Zestiria Review - Needs more 'Zest'

There was a time when Japanese RPGs were big news on consoles with regular updates from the likes of Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest. There have been slim pickings over the last few years though. Instead, we've seen RPG elements creep into more action-orientated games. 2015 has been no different, with the great (Witcher III) and poor (Mad Max) alike bumping their games past the 40 hour mark with skill trees and lengthy upgrade systems.

But what about something unmistakably 'Japanese'? With the Final Fantasy series going online with XIV or still being miles off (XV), it's once again up to Bandai Namco and the Tales series to bring fans a slice of old-school goodness.

Tales of Zestiria, like past Tales entries, sits very much in its own groove with an action-orientated combat system that still somehow feels 'traditional' compared to the fluid systems found in say Diablo III or the melee combat of The Witcher III.

Tales of Zestiria Review - Needs more 'Zest'

Zestiria's combat can feel limited during the game's opening hours, but it does open up once more features are unlocked. There are two melee buttons for various 'Artes' and these consume juice from a gauge, stopping you constantly hammering the buttons, as you'll occasionally have to pull back to let it regenerate.

Tales of Zestiria gets lowest price yet

Tales of Zestiria hasn't been out long, but this deal absolutely smashes the competition. GC are selling the new action JRPG for just £28.95 with the next best deal being £34.40.

My review of Tales of Zestiria will be ready soon. If you've enjoyed the Tales of series games in the past though, you'll have fun with the latest entry. The game is a few years old though (in Japan) and this PS4 version looks very last-gen. Not to worry, as the anime humour, action-packed fights, quirky characters and item crafting tick all the right boxes for hardcore fans.

Thanks to FantasyDeals.

Tales of Zestiria gets combat-packed trailer

Tales of Zestiria isn't far away now, and this new trailer is packed with battle scenes. The Tales of games are more action-orientated than most JRPGs, but they're far from simple. Once you get rolling though, the fluid moves are a lot of fun, as I found when reviewing Tales of Xillia.

It's great to see a trailer show so much gameplay, instead of random story points that have no meaning without the context (like most JRPG trailers). Take a look, and if you like what you see, how about one of these cheap Tales of Zestiria PS3 or PS4 preorders?

Tales of Zestiria cheapest preorders found

The latest in the long-running Tales series is currently on schedule to land later this year on PS3 and PS4. There's a sizable discount if you're content to play on PS3, but the PS4 price isn't bad for a new release either.

We don't expect the graphical upgrade on the PS4 version to be particularly noticeable given the animated style, so that cheaper last-gen version is looking pretty tempting. While you're here, have you seen the new Tales of Zestiria combat trailer?

Just a quickie for my fellow JRPG fans: Tales Of Zestiria is still on course to release in the UK this Autumn, as you can see via the brand new trailer. Expect plenty of questing and an all-new adventure along with the cel-shaded visuals and exceptional combat we expect from the series.

However, and I've been dying to tell you this since the Level-Up 2015 preview event last week (NDAs are fun), Tales Of Zestiria will also feature dual English and Japanese dubs. Fans have requested this feature forever, so it's great to see Bandai Namco include the option.
