New details on Tales of Berseria

Tales of Berseria shows off a beautifully complex and diverse world, and gives a closer look at Velvet, a woman who exchanged happiness for icy hatred.

Bandai Namco has released new promotional material on the Tales of Berseria website such as the concept art of Velvet, the protagonist, new screenshots, and more information about the game.

The world of Tales of Berseria

The game takes place in Midgand - the Holy Empire that spans the entire ocean. Several larger islands and an infinite number of smaller archipelagos are all unified as 'territory' under the jurisdiction of the empire.  

Even though they are part of the same kingdom, the north and the south are totally different temperatures.

The differences in climate have also influenced the native cultures.  From the style of the buildings to the people's lifestyles, culture varies from territory to territory. In recent years, however, the whole world has become colder -  especially the northern region, which is being buried in snow.

With the advances of ship building and sailing technology in the Midgand Holy Empire, trade and commerce is being actively conducted everywhere. Because the weather and ocean currents are so intense, trade ships are forced to use specific routes that are frequently targeted by pirates.

With snow-covered towns, eternal summer islands, autumn foliage, and evening suns, this game promises to have more diverse environments for the player to explore.

The Protagonist - Velvet

  • Gender:  Female
  • Age:  19
  • Height:  170cm

Velvet used to be an ordinary young girl with an openhearted personality, great sensitivity, and a love for her family.

However, an incident that took place three years ago caused a complete change in her.  She has just about lost the ability to smile.  Instead, she carries cold emotions, like fury and hatred, with her.

I won't give up.  I'll give them hell, however many times it takes.  

No matter what lies on the path ahead...         --Velvet

Now she is a woman that keeps her true gentle nature suppressed inside while she burns with cold fury.  Before long, she will become the existence that shakes the world.

Tales of Berseria will be available for both the PlayStation 3 and PS4.  The Japanese release date is still not yet determined.
