The imminent arrival of Tales of Zestiria in the west has seen to the release of an English dubbed trailer, naturally leading to the inevitable clash of fans of English dub versus those of the original.

The relatively cheesy trailer:

The latest iteration in the Tales of series “Tales of Zestiria” will make its way onto PS3 sometime this fall.

    The story is not promising... It sounds pretty cheesy.

    Alexis Tipton confirmed her role

    Regardless of what you think of dubs, she is fairly attractive.

    this game just looks boring, and the main character looks like an extra in the backdrop.

    this games hype died when ppl found alisha was pulled from the game.the dual audio most likely was only added too boost sales.

    now the most curious thing will be will they do a good translation for the japanese audio or more a made up one like with Tales of hearts R which had made up words that weren't even spoken. or Ni no kuni's dubtitles which made no sense when you played with japanese voice overs.

    I've played all of my Tales games in Japanese since Destiny 2. Anyway, I managed to see some videos of the 'localization' and they always ruin the dialogue and atmosphere of the games. For example, Aguria comes off as insane and cold blooded, possibly an abuse victim, in the original Japanese, and the English "localization" she sounds like a retarded baby, saying stupid shit like "Zip it you little pimple or I'll pop you." Just horrible, horrible localizations overall, regardless of the shitty dubbing. The basic translations are butchered to up the ante on the cheese. It's insulting to the games, really. If the creators actually understood English, I'm sure they would facepalm.

    The game is also a technical mess.

    Alisha? What did I miss.

    Alisha, the pink heroine-looking girl in this trailer, is only playable for 3 hours in game, despite after having been advertised as this game's lead female right from day 1 of the announcement.

    Alisha simply 'leaves' the party after that 3 hours, she did not die, did not turn evil, was not crippled, she just left and never rejoin the party ever again(except for a single boss battle in late game, but even then it's just for that fight).

    Then a girl with much plainer design, unlikeable personality, and role that makes little to no sense joins the party as her replacement, and Bamco isn't even trying to be subtle, the replacement girl gains all of Alisha's DLC costumes and the party members will randomly compare Alisha to her for absolutely no reason, only to conclude that Alisha isn't as good as her.

    Alisha will still be alive perfectly healthy offscreen, but the story will try it's damnest to make her unhappy and a non-factor to the core plot, Sorey will make several statements how he is constantly worried about her, but helping her is not even a subquest you can take.

    All in all, it's a massive waste of her character and it's more like the writers hate her seiyuu or designer or something.

    It makes you wonder why anyone in the production team did not foresee this backlash, because Zestiria already became the most unpopular mothership title in the Japanese fandom, and it made me worry for the future of the series.

    It's a shame. The replacement really looks plain compared to Alisha.
    They even have that gorgeous silver hair girl and that cute loli that they could have used as heroine. Are those two at least permanent party members?

    Bait and switch main heroine just because the one in charge wanted to bang Komatsu Mikako.

    No point buying Zestiria, dual audio or not until they fix the game and release a proper version of it.

    Sorey sounds like Bryce Papenbrook(Dub Kirito)
    Alisha sounds like Alexis Tipton
    Lailah sounds like Cassandra Morris(Dub Kiritos Sis)
    Mikleo: ??

    I'm probably wrong, just Sorey does sound a hell of a lot like Bryce Papenbrooks Kirito.

    Holy shit I think that is Alexis Tipton. I don't think the others are Papenbrrook and Morris though. Papenbrook would make the character sound younger than that. And Morris has a distinctly pretty voice that suites her for younger roles than that. My bet is Stephanie Sheih. And I hope they handle the blue haired kids voice well. I see too many bishonen voiced with a female or a deep voiced male. One who actually sounds his age is a breath of fresh air.

    With Morris, I was reminded of Suguha and her Taiga for some reason.

    If you don't like dubs, buy the Japanese version. Oh wait, you don't speak the language, my bad.

    The dubs are terrible, the 'localizations' are horrid bastardizations of the original script with tons of made up shit thrown in. Not playing the originals in Japanese = otaku fail.

    You can fight like a Krogan, run like a leopard, but you'll never be better than Commander Sheppe(a)rd!

    Ah Mass Effect. It was so fabulous until the third game but then I was glad I played it because I got to see all those hilarious Gamer Poops.

    The English localizations of these games are always horrible.

    This is the worst Tales game hands down for too many reasons to list here (I've suffered through it to the end). It has 1.6 stars at for a reason.

    It has 1.6 stars because of what they did with a certain main character and DLC. Not for the story.
