What Is Tales of Luminaria?
The Tales of Luminaria mobile game is the latest portable iteration of the long-running JRPG series from Bandai Namco. Announced as part of the first anniversary of Tales of Crestoria, the current main mobile game in the series, this new entry is a fully 3D JRPG title on mobile.
Played in portrait mode, pre-release screenshots show a tall red-haired male swordsman fending off a pack of wolves. In another, two players are seen battling a large chimera-like creature called 'Aglaya' on an elaborate arena in space, highlighting the game's co-op raid battle.

With the success of recent titles like Tales of Arise, Bandai Namco has accelerated its efforts to have simultaneous worldwide releases of future games in the series. Tales of Luminaria is the latest to enjoy this, and news of that goal means we already know the list of Tales of Luminaria English voice actors.

The above stems from Funimation's announcement of an accompanying anime series, so this list assumes the Tales of Luminaria English voice actors will be performing for both the show and the game.
How Can I Play Tales of Luminaria?
What Is the Tales of Luminaria Release Date?
Despite pre-registration being up, a Tales of Luminaria release date isn't yet known. The reveal trailer said it would be "coming soon," but there's currently no way to know whether that means 2021 or 2022.
Who Designed the Tales of Luminaria Characters?
Shun Saeki is the illustrator credited for the Tales of Luminaria character artwork. Though many fans are saying the art design isn't that of a traditional 'Tales of' game, that isn't to say the person behind the characters is a new face in the industry. When the game was announced, Bandai Namco said the main artist hadn't worked on the series before - and that's true. Saeki is instead famous for their work on the Food Wars (Shokugeki no Soma) manga.
Which Studio Is Making the Tales of Luminaria Anime?
Though not directly tied into gaming, the Tales of Luminaria anime is set to be such a big part of the mobile game experience that it would be silly to exclude it from this roundup. If you watched the trailer and thought the art style looked familiar, you're probably already accustomed to anime studio Kamikaze Douga.
On top of working on the Tales of Crestoria mobile game's anime prologue, the studio is best known for the Batman Ninja movie and for creating one episode of the recent Star Wars: Visions anthology series.
And that's about everything we know about Tales of Luminaria right now. As this is expected to be a pretty big-budget mobile game from Namco Bandai, we expect it to trump the popularity of the already big Tales of Crestoria release from last year. We'll update this page when more information arrives.
