The first of two videos recapping the events of the first Tales of Xillia has been put up for those who either need a reminder or plan to go into the sequel without playing the first. Obviously there are spoilers for Xillia here, so don't watch if you still haven't played it and plan to do so. The second video will be put up next week.
Famitsu's article on Tales of Zestiria is up thanks to @Kurushii. Their online preview is up too.
Sergei (CV: Hideyuki Hori) was introduced ever so slightly in Jump's article last week. He's a leader of the White Imperial Knights of the Lowlance Empire.
The other minor character here is named Lucas (CV: Takanori Hoshino).
Two locations shown here are Vargran Forest and Camelot Continental Bridge.
Other than that, there are more screens of the fusions and Normin. As a reminder, the fusion with Mikleo uses a bow, Edna's uses giant fists, and Dezel's uses wings made up of blades.
Normin, the game's mascot, can be found around and spoken to.
Edit: Oh, somehow missed the small blurb on how to use fusion and switching your partner. You press L1 for fusion, and use the directional pad to switch your Divine partner.
