Tales of Zestiria gets pre-order bonuses, Collector's Edition, and PC screenshots
Over the past few days at Japan Expo in Paris and Anime Expo in Los Angeles, Bandai Namco has provided information on pre-order and collector bonuses for Tales of Zestiria in Europe and North America.
The publisher also announced that fan-favorite Tales of Symphonia will be making its way to PC via Steam in 2016. If enough Steam pre-purchases are made for Tales of Zestiria, Symphonia will be given to pre-orders for free. See the details below.
Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe details the items found in the Collector's Edition, available for both PS3 and PS4, although no price has been given.
- 4 Chibi Kyun Chara figures
- Lady of the Lake sanctuary cloth artwork
- Hardback artbook
- 30 minute anime DVD
- Selected soundtrack from the game
- Exclusive Normin metalcase
- Collector’s Edition box
Purchasers of any edition can get free bonus Exclusive Mystic Arte DLC for Mikleo, Lailah and Alisha through Bandai Namco's official "VIP Corner". Alisha's Story DLC will also be made available for free, again through the VIP Corner for either version, and only if the game is purchased at launch. After November 18, 2015, the Alisha DLC has to be purchased via PSN.
At participating retailers in selected countries, you can get 4 badges to show that you are ready to take on the journey of the Shepherd (or to show off the incredibly adorable yet mysterious Normin). Through preordering at participating retailers in participating countries as well as digital stores, you can get classic Tales costumes and Weapon Skins! Can you name them all?
Finally, the pre-purchase bonus for Tales of Zestiria on STEAM will depend on the number of pre-orders! Once the pre-purchase reaches a certain milestone, bonus content will be made available for all users where the final step is Tales of Symphonia HD is given to all STEAM pre-purchasers!?
Bandai Namco Entertainment America hasn't provided any clean images of the North American Collector's Edition - but it is available on the Bandai Namco Store for $129.95.
Update: The Collector's Edition is now available on Amazon.
From the image, it looks like the CE is for the PS4 version only and contains:
- PS4 game software
- Collector's edition box (different style than Europe)
- Celestial Record steelcase (different than Europe)
- 4 Chibi Kyun Chara figures
- 3 pixel art rubber straps
- Dawn of the Shepherd anime blu-ray (EU version is listed as a 'DVD')
- Artworks book
- Music Selection CD
- Collector's Edition DLC pack
Bandai Namco Entertainment America has not detailed pre-order or DLC bonuses, other than a DLC pack included in the CE. Bonuses on Steam should be the same for either region.
Here are Tales of Zestiria PC screenshots provided by Bandai Namco, as well as some Tales of Symphonia PC Screenshots - which will be available sometime next year.
