Tales of Festival 2017 dated for June 2 to 4

What's in store for the 10th Tales of Festival?

Tales of Festival 2017

Tales of Festival 2017 will run from June 2 to 4 at the Yokohama Arena main hall, Bandai Namco announced.

This year marks the annual event’s 10th festival. The first Tales of Festival was held in 2008 at the Bunkyo Civic Hall grand hall.

Tales Channel+, Bandai Namco’s official Tales of series website, is hosting a character popularity poll until April 30 at 23:59 JST, the results of which will be announced at Tales of Festival 2017. In addition to an overall character popularity vote, it also has separate categories for the most ppoular mascot character, enemy character, and character you want to see brought back.

The latest entry in the Tales of series, Tales of Berseria, was released in Japan in August 2016, and just launched in North America and Europe this week. Tales of Berseria was announced at Tales of Festival 2015, so perhaps we’ll see the announcement of a new Tales of title.
