The story of Tales of Zestiria the X is where there are living beings called Seraphim. Seraphim are a race superior to humans, which give blessings to humans after they pray to them. There are people known as “Shepherds” who have the ability to interact with Seraphim. The Shepherds are also considered superior to humans because they only appear in extreme situations such as a crisis. They are extremely powerful, due to which they are feared. After many years, Shepherds become the main part of a legend as well.

The protagonist is a young boy named Sorey. He has spent most of his life living with Seraphim in the village of Elysia. Sorey is fantasized about the enormous knowledge of the Celestial Records. He is curious about knowing more of the history of Seraphim from his friend Mikleo. One day, Sorey and Mikleo investigate an ancient historical site when they get caught in its depths.

Due to its beautiful animation, storyline, and characters, Tales of Zestiria the X became a very popular anime. It received great reviews from the audience and was even voted 7.5 from 67000 votes on MyAnimeList. The anime also sold well because the BD/DVD sales were good. In the first week, 2,816 of DVD copies were sold and the series was ranked in between 11-19 positions. Seeing such good sales figures, the producers would be encouraged to make a second season.

However, season 3 is delayed because there is not enough source material available for season 3 yet. Since Tales of Zestiria, the X is not based on a manga but the video game instead, a season three can only come out after a new version is released. As the previous two seasons had already covered the content from the available games.

On the other hand, there is another prequel game of Tales of Zestiria the X called Tales of Berseria, the franchise’s sixteenth game. The studio might decide to release a spin-off of the anime Tales of Berseria, or they would keep the Tales of Zestiria the X Season 3 and use the Tales of Berseria. The creators might be motivated to produce a season 3 because the franchise is already successful, so another season would please its fans or even increase the sales of the video games. The Tales of Berseria video game also has good reviews and a rating of (10/10) on STEAM.

Keeping all of this in mind, it can be concluded that there are chances of a season 3 of Tales of Zestiria the X. Once there is enough source material and studio Ufotable has finished its current projects, a third season might get announced.
