ToZ Site-Maltran, Bartlow, System Info, etc

The official site for Tales of Zestiria updated with the info that's been released this month.
A couple of new locations were added here and here.
The page on the Divine now has some more general info. Supposedly not everyone is pleased to see Sorey use his priest powers despite the legends saying that he'll bring peace. To someone without spiritual power, his powers don't look any different from the abnormalities Hyouma create and it's frightening to them.
Also, Lailah has a pledge that grants her power, but there's a rule to it. It's unknown what the rule is, but if the subject is brought up, she acts strange and tries to avoid the subject.

A page with screenshots of the anime scenes was put up.

On the character pages, the spellings were put up and the URLs were updated to fit them. Apparently the name is actually "Alisha" with a l (I guess Dengeki messed that one up). The two characters shown recently are named Maltran and Bartlow.

For the battle system, there are pages for the Real Map Battle system and Mystic Artes. As a reminder, the former is the fact that the terrain of the location shows up in battles. As for Mystic Artes, only screens of Lailah's Enbu Rengekiha are shown without detailing how to use them.

Another page was put up for accompanying characters, as in, the ones who follow you around on the field and can be spoken to at times.
Finally, Map Actions were also added. You can do things like use Sorey's sword to cut something out of the way, burn with Lailah's flames, and so on.

Pages for the TV special and theme song were also added, but there's nothing we didn't already know.

ToW-RU-Flynn, Rita, Raven Videos

The Tales of the World: Reve Unitia site now has videos of Flynn, Rita, and Raven.

Okay, so the names are Sorey, Arisha, Mikleo, Edna, Lailah, Dezel, and Zaveid.
At one point the official site did have Sorey's name down as Slay before swiftly removing it.
Edit: Dengeki messed up, the name is Alisha rather than Arisha.
