Tales of Asteria Shares 9th Anniversary Artwork Before Shutdown Next Month

Bandai Namco has shared commemorative artwork for their mobile free-to-play game Tales of Asteria, celebrating its ninth anniversary before it shuts down on May 19, 2023. The illustration depicts several characters from Tales of games who united throughout this experience.

The title’s illustrations will be preserved in the form of a memorial book set to release in late July. The book can be purchased at the Asobi Store for ¥8000 or ¥9,800. It contains 180 pages of clothing designs on top of the 540 B5-sized pages containing every single 4★ and above illustration released in-game thus far (with some exceptions).

In case you missed it, the soundtrack for this mobile title was recently added to streaming services.

Check out our review of Tales of Symphonia Remastered on Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, it is severely lacking in vital technical areas.

The anime was recently fully uploaded onto YouTube for free with English subtitles.

Bandai Namco recently commented that they are looking into patching the game’s Nintendo Switch version, specifically.

Tales of Symphonia was initially released for the Gamecube worldwide before receiving a Japanese-exclusive PlayStation 2 version that added more content. That same version would launch worldwide for PlayStation 3 and then eventually PC via Steam. This upcoming remaster is using the latest versions as the basis, though several new features are arriving, such as skippable anime events and improved maritime navigation.

Tales of Symphonia Remastered is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch.

In case you missed it, over 2,000 Tales of songs are making their way to streaming services.

We discussed the number of Tales of games that have never been localized and those that have never been ported, making most of the franchise notably inaccessible to contemporary audiences.

“Tales of Arise Beyond the Dawn” was trademarked in Europe.
