These were all recorded during a Bandai Namco even in Brazil earlier this week. More footage will probably get uploaded throughtout the day by other websites as well, I'll upload them as they get posted.

I'm pretty sure this is not the first english footage of Zestiria =P

Also, is it just the offscreen video, or has the draw distance in Zestiria been improved by quite a lot?


Good videos, Digimon looking really good.

Cyber Sleuth looks great, but I wish they'd rework the menus for the console release. It's so big, clearly designed for a smaller handheld screen. The camera is also rather close to the character.

What's the point of making the field so bloody big in Zestiria? It just looks so empty and boring. Ugh.
I think part of it was just in response to the criticism they received about the Xillia games being smallish areas. But it seems like they went a bit overboard. It seems like they're dialing it back for Berseria. The few environment shots we've seen of it so far look really nice.

Am I spotting slight framerate slowdowns on the first Zestiria video or am I just wrong? When Sorey is running sometimes the screen gets laggy :/

I was thinking the same thing to. Xillia 1/2 had small areas with "mountains/hills" on all sides enclosing the area in and then they just packed these areas with tons of enemies and random items with the odd "secret" area/hole to go through for a chest. Zestiria doesn't look enclosed and really looks open but at the cost of looking a bit barren (at least from what I've seen so far).

I wouldn't judge anything graphics or frame rate based on an offscreen camera youtube video.

Yeah Zestiria looks on par with Xillia to me and that was on PS3. Granted Zestiria is a PS3 game so I can see that this is probably just an upres obv with maybe a little better fps? Digimon looks great, but it already looked pretty good on the Vita. I'll probably get this on the PS4 for the physical copy, and remote play it. SAO LS looks alright. Loved HF last year on my Vita, but I hear this game isn't so great. I'll still get it, to go along with my HF case on my shelf, but we'll see.

Problem with Xillia for me is the outdoor environment looks incredibly bland and heavy copy paste job, not because they were small. At first I thought Zestiria is trying to follow Xenoblade's footstep of open world design, just like FFXV. Then I realized that they're not going to work because Namco and SE doesn't know how to make interesting level design and intriguing world design.

Believes Dragon Quest is a franchise managed by Sony

Digimon, Tales and Nardo will be mine +__+

Especially digimon, really surprised at the quality of the port just based on that video, if not for the smallish rooms, you could barely tell it was a vita upport

What is Digimon? I've heard of it but never played them. Are they like Pokemon?
If you ever played Shin Megami Tensei, Cyber Sleuth plays much closer to that than Pokemon. At its core though, it is a monster collecting and battling game like Pokemon.

If you are asking about the franchise in general, it is nothing like Pokemon except that there are monsters involved, but you'll often see rivalries flare up because they "competed" with each other in the 90's.

Come visit the Digimon OT in Off-Topic Community if you want to know more about it.

Hard to hear the dub in those ToZ videos. But hard to tell, is there AA being used? It sure looks like it. Looks nice! Should run and look way better on PS4 than PS3.

Got the CE on order. Normally out of my price range, but I make exceptions for Tales of.
