Tales of Crestoria

Tales of Crestoria will no longer launch in 2019 as previously planned, producer Tomomi Tagawa said in a development update published on the game’s official website.

Here is the message in full:

As always, thank you for your ongoing support of Tales of Cestoria. We have an important announcement for everyone looking forward to the game.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to release the Japanese and English versions of Tales of Cestoria during 2019 as we previously announced. We are deeply sorry to have to share this news, especially for people who have been waiting so long for an update on the release date.

One of our goals with this game is to create a Tales series title for mobile that anyone can pick up and enjoy. For that reason, we are requesting some time to focus on quality improvements.

We also have an update on the current state of development. We plan to release the main story fully voiced so that everyone can enjoy Cestoria’s brand new story through the voices of the main characters. *Voices will be in Japanese.

We are also expanding the main characters’ breadth of emotions within the story so that they can express themselves even more fully. Plus, we will be adding unique illustrated cut-ins to better highlight the drama in their story. There are too many other small details to list, but we are in the process of improving them all.

Our next update on the development will be in December 2019. Specifically, we plan to share an update on release, in-game features, and a sneak preview of the opening movie.

The development team, including myself, will continue to work hard to deliver the best possible game to all the fans who have waited so excitedly for it. Once again, we offer our sincerest thanks for your support for Tales of Cestoria.
