Default Tales of Berseria

Tales of Berseria is a fantasy action/RPG developed in Japan. It is a part of the "Tales of" series which dates back to Tales of Phantasia, released in 1995 on the Super Famicom (Super NES).

Official website: http://talesofberseria.tales-ch.jp/



Quote:
Bandai Namco Entertainment revealed the Tales of Berseria game for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 at the "Tales of Festival 2015" event in Tokyo on Saturday. The mothership title game will star Rina Satou as the protagonist Velvet. Satou was a surprise guest at the announcement's unveiling.

The game marks the first time in the series history that a game will feature only a main heroine. Mutsumi Inomata is returning to the franchise to design the characters.

"I won't give up. I'll grab onto them as many times as it takes."

Quote:
The main character designer for Velvet is Mutsumi Inomata. Velvet is apparently a female pirate, and themes of pirates and ships were shown during the short scenery video they played at the event.

No background information on Velvet or the game was given, as they said it is not yet time to give out said info. ufotable will be in charge of the animated cutscenes.

Quote:
In a trailer shown at the event, we see Velvet trapped in prison. In another scene, she is riding something like a ship. Later on, we see snow and grassy plains, as well as oceans in the ship scene.

According to the press release, the game will have “cities covered in snow, perpetual summer islands, autumn leaves, and evening sunsets,” as well as a “diversity of situations” compared to previous entries in the series.

Velvet (Protagonist)

“I won’t give up. I’ll bite them as many times as it takes.”

In the wake of an incident that occurred three years ago, her life was completely changed. She is becoming an existence that greatly shakes the world.

The Midgand Sacred Kingdom, which consists of several large lands and countless groups of islands.

A world where ship handling and the art of sailing have advanced.

In the north and south of Midgand Sacred Kingdom in which the game is set, there is great variation in climate due to the land. (Harsh winters, everlasting summers, etc.)

Tales of Berseria Details On Its Battle System And A New Character “Laiphaset”. December 15, 2015 . 12:22am

Bandai Namco shared the latest on Tales of Berseria recently, with some new details on the story and the introduction of a new character named Laiphaset.




Quote:







Bandai Namco shared the latest on Tales of Berseria recently, with some new details on the story and the introduction of a new character named Laiphaset.

The character in the above image is a young boy named Laiphaset, and was designed by Minoru Iwamoto, and voiced by Azumi Asakura. If the protagonist Velvet is considered the “shadow” then he is made to be the “light” in the story, and is expected to play a big role in the story.

Additionally, the “Linear Motion Battle System” will be evolved in Tales of Berseria. Here are some of the notes on that:

  • Players will get to control characters with a free run base.
  • Camera angles can be freely moved around during battle.
  • The Arts you want to use can be set on all four buttons of circle, X, triangle, and square, and you can do combos by combining up buttons to decide which Art to use next.

As for the controls, they’re said to be familiar to what we’ve had in the Tales series, and described as “battles with speedy and refreshing feelings” and “controls that just about anyone can pick up and play with ease” as some of the focus.



There’s a lot more new features, including new systems that will be announced in the near future for Tales of Berseria.

Tales of Berseria is in development for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.

Tales of Berseria set in the past world of Tales of Zestiria
Published 13 hours ago. 335 comments.

Quote:
New details from Weekly Famitsu.


Tales of Berseria and Tales of Zestiria are set in the same world, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals. But the story of Tales of Berseria is set long in the past.



The setting of Tales of Berseria is known as the “Wasteland.” The continent in the middle of this world is what eventually comes to be called “Glenwood,” which is seen in Tales of Zestiria.


Though it’s set in the same world, the world of the past in Tales of Berseria is completely different than that of the future. Place names such as towns and nature are all different from the future seen in Tales of Zesteria, too. But there are also places where you’ll be able to recall the culture and nature of the future.




Famitsu also has some details on Tales of Berseria‘s battle system. Entering battle will follow the same smooth transition as seen in Tales of Zestiria, with further improved control and field of vision. As previously detailed, you’ll be able to activate Artes which can be registered to the Circle, X, Triangle, and Square buttons. Through this configuration, you will be able to trigger and coordinate various Artes based on your play style and the order that you press buttons.
A few keywords were also shared:
  • Goma Disease – A disease that transforms humans into monsters. Many of those affected by the illness are reduced to violence and attack others, but there are some who manage to keep their sense of reason.
  • Goma – Things that transformed humans into monsters. Animals, for example, can be Goma that carry the Goma Disease.
  • Seirei – A race that deals with artes that use the power of nature. Most of them are not self-conscious and are used as familiars by humans. Your ally Laphicet is part of this race.
  • Scarlet Night – The night of the scarlet moon. It is said to have some sort of connection to Goma Disease.
While details are unknown, three key items—a compass, comb, and apple—are said to have a deep connection to the story and characters of Tales of Berseria.




Finally, the magazine reveals that the same character designers for Tales of Zestiria—Mutsumi Inomata, Kosuke Fujishima, Daigo Okumura, and Minoru Iwamoto—are the character designers for Tales of Berseria
Tales of Berseria is due out for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan in 2016, and for PlayStation 4 and PC in North America and Europe during an unannounced release window.




Thanks, Games Talk.

Tales of Xillia 2 reused/recycled way too much content from the first Xillia. That was a disappointing aspect of it.

I just hope they don't go that route with Berseria or anywhere near that extent.

Tales of Berseria details theme, setting, story, characters, and battle system

Published 28 mins ago. 5 comments
Quote:
New information and screenshots.





Bandai Namco has released new details and screenshots for Tales of Berseria, detailing the RPG’s theme, setting, and story, characters Velvet and Laphicet, and Linear Motion Battle System.





Get the information, which is a mix of old and new, below.

■ Theme, Setting, and Story
Theme




“Emotion and Reason.”


Tales of Berseria depicts the clash of emotion and reason following the protagonist Velvet, who has strong emotions, as she comes into conflict with characters who have forsaken emotion and only use reason.




Setting




In the world of Wasteland, there is a vast land that spreads out from its center. In the far future, it is a continent known as Glenwood.


The setting of the story is Midgand Sacred Kingdom, a large power across the ocean that reigns over the continent. Its vast lands and countless islands are organized into jurisdictions known as “territories.”


Even within the same kingdom, there is an extreme difference in temperature between the north and south, as well as great climate differences depending on the land. The changes in climate also influence the culture, including different building structures and way of living depending on the territory.


In recent years, the world has been getting colder, especially the northern region which is getting buried in snow.




The Midgand Sacred Kingdom has developed shipbuilding and sailing technology, and trade is actively carried out throughout various locations. Because ocean currents and weather changes can be violent, trade ships use a specific route, and pirates aiming to steel their cargo appear frequently.




Prologue
This is the beginning of the legend. And the true story that was forgotten in the far future.
Three years ago…


Because of the rare disease called Gomabyo which changes humans into monsters, the world had reached an age of confusion.


Velvet lives in a remote village in the Midgand Sacred Kingdom. She and her family help each other out through difficult situations and live their days comfortably.
However, the night that the scarlet moon rises, everything that surrounds her is changed. She is betrayed by those she had trusted, and not only are the blood relatives she loves snatched away, her left hand is swallowed by a mysterious power, and is transformed into the hand of a demon with the ability to eat monsters.
Present day….


Time moved on, and three years passed. With the advent of the savior, one woman makes her way through a kingdom that is restoring order to the world.
Her name is Velvet Clou (Kurau). In her eyes, you can see the fury towards the savior who took away everything from her.




Terms
  • Gomabyo (Goma Disease) – A disease that transforms humans into monsters. Many of those affected by the illness are reduced to violence and attack others, but there are some who manage to keep their sense of reason.
  • Goma – Things that transform humans into monsters. Animals, for example, can be Goma that carry the Goma Disease.
  • Seirei – A race that deals with artes that use the power of nature. Most of them are not self-conscious and are used as familiars by humans.
  • Scarlet Night – The night of the scarlet moon. It is said to have some sort of connection to Goma Disease.
Keys to the Story
A “compass,” “comb,” and “apple” are deeply involved with the story and characters of Tales of Berseria.






■ Characters
Velvet Crau



  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 19
  • Height: 170cm
  • Weapon: Piercing Blade
  • Combat Type: Piercing Swordswoman
  • Race: Gyoma?
  • Voice actor: Rina Sato
In the past, she had a plain and good humored personality, and was a girl rich in sensitivity and love for her family. However, she changed entirely in the wake of a certain incident that occurred three years ago. Her smile is now almost eliminated, and she instead harbors the cold feelings known as anger and hatred. With her original kindness suppressed, and her unexpectedly cold-hearted passion burning bright, she will soon become an existence that greatly shakes the world.
Her left hand, which is covered in bandages, can transform into something inhuman by way of a mysterious power that swallowed her on the day of the incident. Her left hand, similar to a Goma, exhibits superhuman powers, but seems to possess abilities different from the common Gyoma.




Laphicet






  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 10
  • Height: 142cm
  • Weapon: Paper Leaves
  • Combat Type: Seirei Mage
  • Race: Seirei
  • Voice actor: Azumi Asakura
A boy without a name used as a tool for artes since birth. He does not know how to live other than in accordance with a master’s orders, and does not have his own opinions or emotions. At first, the way he has no goals of his own his own irritates Velvet, but throughout their journey, he learns various things and both his heart and will grow and develop. He eventually becomes support for Velvet, who harbors a violent rage.




■ Linear Motion Battle System









The battle system of Tales of Berseria is the conventional Linear Motion Battle System (LMBS), now with free-run-based character control, free camera control, and artes set to the Circle, X, Triangle, and Square buttons.




Going from the conventional style of triggering artes with the left stick and Circle or X buttons, Tales of Berseria sets artes to the Circle, X, Triangle, and Square buttons. Due to this, players can concentrate on using the left stick for movement and the buttons for artes. It is similar to the conventional system and lets players intuitively link together artes.







Additionally, with the addition of free camera control, you can easily adjust the viewpoint during play and change the camera to the angle of your preference.




■ Wasteland
From snow-filled cities to summer islands, autumn leaves, and the setting sun, the diversity of situations have increased compared to previous entries in the series.

A certain beach within the kingdom:

I like this design. The main one looks like a tribute to Tetsuya Nomura's trademark of belts and zippers everywhere. And the pandering is overdone. They didn't go that far for main heroine Milla Maxwell's design in Xillia.
