Tales fans, rejoice! Namco Bandai has just released their next batch of news for Tales of Zestiria, the series successor to the upcoming Tales of Xillia 2. Meet Edna, or エドナ, the solitary member of the Divine living high in the mountains. Her name translates to Edona, but no official romanization has been released so far.
Edna, the stereotypically dainty heroine, was designed by Minoru Iwamoto, character designer from Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology. This young girl, standing just under five feet, has grown up distrusting humans, as evident by her belief that they are "selfish and so emotional". Edna is an Earth elemental character, which is reflected by her Divine Artes. Her weapon of choice is a parasol, a new introduction to the Tales weapon family.
Players will be able to slay evil beings, work suspiciously alongside humans, and train with the dragons in the fantasy world soon. Tales of Zestiria will launch worldwide for the PlayStation 3 in 2015. No word has been given so far on specific release dates among different regions.
Edit: Fixed incorrect year.
