Namco Bandai has released a slate of new screenshots showing off its upcoming RPG Tales of Zestiria, giving a glimpse at protagonists Alicia and Slay as they wander the game's lush overworld.

Announced last month, Tales of Zestiria is the latest entry in Namco Bandai's long-running "Tales of" RPG series, which saw recent North American releases in Tales of Xiliia and Tales of Graces f for the PlayStation 3. Namco Bandai recently detailed Zestiria's combat mechanics, revealing that enemy encounters will feature "an evolved form of the current linear-motion battle system."

A North American release for Tales of Zestiria has not been announced, but series fans can look forward to localized versions of Tales of Symphonia Chronicles and Tales of Xillia 2 arriving stateside this year.
