Namco Bandai recently revealed Tales of Zestiria as their 20th Anniversary mainline Tales title. Tales of Zestiria is exclusive to the PS3 and will also be localized for western regions.
The game stars two protagonists namely Slay and Alicia as they journey across the land of Glynnwood (sic). The land of Glynnwood is home to two rival nations, the Highland Kingdom and Laurence Empire who are constantly fighting for control of the region. Dragons are also said to play a pivotal part in the story.
The battle system is said to be an evolution to the series’ famous Linear Motion Battle system. Check out the debut trailer below:

The last Tales of game released in western regions is Tales of Xillia which I’m currently playing through. It’s a really great game and I would certainly recommend it, you can read out review here.
