UPDATE: Tales of Crestoria Manga Listed on Amazon Japan; January 2023 Release

Following the worldwide shutdown of the mobile Tales of title, Tales of Crestoria, the first manga volume aiming to preserve the game’s story has been listed on Amazon Japan. The scenario writer is Jun Kumagai, and the illustrator is Tsubaki Ayasugi. Further, a release date of January 17, 2023, is stated.

No word on an official English release has been provided yet, but hopefully, we’ll receive news from Bandai sooner rather than later. Crestoria had a grim and intriguing premise that deserves to be fully realized.

UPDATE: The manga will be digitally debuting in Japanese on December 4, 2022, via the Magazine Pocket app. An official trailer for the manga was shared by the Tales of Twitter account as well, viewable below:

In Tales of Crestoria, characters carry objects known as Vision Orbs, which are essentially used as footage to judge whether a person is innocent or guilty of an accused crime. Stains of Guilt appear on guilty parties, and they end up hunted by authorities as a result. The protagonist, Kanata Hjuger, finds himself branded with the mark following a tragic and twisted event.

Tales of Symphonia Remastered will launch Westward for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch on February 17, 2023.

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 PlayStation 3 version as the basis, though several new features are arriving, such as skippable events and improved maritime navigation.
