Tales of Zestiria

Just like the more recent entries of the Tales of series, Tales of Zestiria is going to be released as a standard edition and a rich Collector’s Edition which will include a variety of extra goodies that no true fan of the series will want to miss such as a limited SteelBook, the Dawn of the Shepard Anime Blu-Ray, Hardcover Artbook, a Special Selection Music CD, the 8-bit Retro Keychains, the Chibi Kyun Chara Figure set and the Collector’s Edition DLC pack. Unfortunately some will be forced to miss these goodies as the Tales of Zestiria Collector’s Edition is no longer available for pre-order on Amazon.

If you still want to get the Tales of Zestiria Collector’s Edition, you may want to pre-order it on GameStop website as soon as possible, as the retailer is listing it as available in limited quantities and it may go sold out very soon

Earlier this week the total number of pre-orders on Steam for Tales Of Zestiria has unlocked the second tier rewards, which include a set of costumes for Lailah, Alisha, Rose and Edna inspired by the outifts of characters of previous entries of the series such as Mint from Tales of Phantasia, Cheria from Tales of Graces F, Milla Maxwell from Tales of Xillia 2 and Elize from Tales of Xillia. With the game still being far from release, there’s a good chance that the even the third tier reward, a free copy of Tales Of Symphonia PC, will be unlocked.

Tales Of Zestiria is now available on PlayStation 3 in Japan. The game will be released this October on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC in North America and Europe. More on the Western release of the game as well as on the PC port of Tales Of Symphonia will surely come in soon so stay tuned for all the latest news.

Star Wars Outlaws has Ubisoft’s biggest marketing budget ever, and the company expects it to have a strong launch

Ubisoft is putting everything they have into Star Wars Outlaws, which comes out next month on August 30th for PS5. The fact that the name includes “Star Wars” shouldn’t come as a surprise when you learn that the company is putting a lot of money into marketing the project and thinks it will do very well.

The CEO of Ubisoft, Yves Guillemot, made the bold claim during the company’s recent earnings call Q&A (thanks, MP1st), though some investors thought it was even more daring than they thought. Based on Ubisoft’s guidance, Nick Dempsey of Barclays came up with a rough estimate of five million units sold and asked if the company was being too cautious. This is what Guillemot said:

“What we expect is for Star Wars Outlaws to have a strong launch.” One reason is that it’s one of the most anticipated games of the year, which shows how positively the community feels about it. Another is that we’re launching the biggest marketing campaign Ubisoft has ever done for a game.

We’d like to know how much Ubisoft spent to market this and what the company expects to get back from it. We had some small worries when we played the game in person at Summer Game Fest, but we’ll keep an eye on things before and after launch.

Are you excited about how soon Star Wars Outlaws will be out? Do you think the game’s supposedly huge marketing budget has an impact on your life? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.
