The Tales series has long been a staple of the producers at the game company Bandai Namco, first beginning in 1995 with Tales of Phantasia for the Super Famicom and has since given fans of gaming and anime alike plenty of new entries over countless consoles. Now, the latest mobile game for the franchise, Tales of Luminaria will be receiving an anime adaptation of its own, with a new trailer dropping along with a release date that shows that fans of the gaming franchise won’t be waiting long for this new entry to hit the small screen.
Tales of Luminaria first hit the scene as a mobile game earlier this year, with the upcoming anime series being given the unique title of Tales of Luminaria: The Fateful Crossroad. The anime, which will be using computer-generated animation to bring its characters to life which is more in line with its video game roots, will be released on January 20th, 2022.
The Official Tales Youtube Channel released the new trailer that gives fans a better idea of the story that will be told in this anime adaptation for a new story in the Tales universe:
Funimation lists the official description for Tales of Luminaria: The Fateful Crossroad as such:
“When conflict breaks out between the Jerle Federation, who worship the Primordial Beasts, and the Gildllan Empire, who possess advanced technology, it’s up to a young federation knight-in-training and his friends to quell the flames of war.”
The official English dub for this series will see voice actors such as Aaron Dismuke, Eric Vale, Colleen Clinkenbeard, and Chris Sabat joining its roster, who are famous for voicing anime properties including Dr. Stone, Fire Force, One Piece, and Dragon Ball Super to name a few.
Tales of Luminaria will be in good company when it comes to anime modeled from the stories of mobile games, with the Fate series, Princess Connect, and Disney’s upcoming Twisted Wonderland all being examples of series that got their start on mobile devices.
