The “Tales of Festival” event is an annual event held in Japan in celebration of the long-running Tales of series of games, as well as the anime that have adapted a few of the titles in the franchise. Every year, there is some kind of poll that users vote in. In 2014, for example, fans voted on their very favorite character, with Tales of Xillia 2‘s Ludger taking the crown.
This year, however, to fit the summer festival theme that the event took on, fans on the Tales of Channel website were asked to vote on some summer-themed questions about the franchise, and here are the results that were announced at Tales of Festival 2016:
What Tales of world would you like to adventure in during summer vacation?
1. Tales of Vesperia
2. Tales of Legendia
3. Tales of Graces F
What character seems like they’d be the best at performing the Bon dance (a classic Japanese dance performed at festivals)?
1. Lloyd Irving from Tales of Symphonia
2. Raven from Tales of Vesperia
3. Tytree from Tales of Rebirth
What character seems like they’d be good at a shooting gallery carnival game?
1. Raven from Tales of Vesperia
2. Hisui Hearts from Tales of Hearts
3. Zaveid from Tales of Zestiria
It might seem obvious that characters using projectiles would win the poll. As Hisui’s voice actor Masaya Matsukaze noted, however, being good at using a bowgun like Raven or Hisui won’t exactly help you at a shooting gallery game, since those games usually employ toy rifles. You’re not going to shoot down any prizes with a bowgun, that’s for sure.
