ToZX-More Streaming News

Funimation confirmed it will also be streaming Tales of Zestiria the X starting in July (Daisuki.net announced they would be doing so before this). There isn't really any information past that, but it's something.

ToB DLC Costume Details

The DLC costumes along with an attachment and the usual item sets are up on the PlayStation Store early for people who want to use them in the download version right at midnight of release so we have more screenshots and details.

The costumes are 300 yen each, while the swimsuits cost 400 yen each and include three color variations as well as a BGM change. There are also sets split by male/female: The female and male sets of swimsuits are 1,100 yen each while the others are 800 each. The Japanese style set is only available to the female characters. People who take advantage of this will need to download the free Catalog No.1 data as well (don't know if this will be included in an update or if it's required for people who get the physical version too).

Linked each character's individual costume for screenshot viewing purposes, so note that only the PS4 version is linked.

ToB PV4 (System Trailer)

Another trailer for Tales of Berseria has been uploaded, this time showcasing the gameplay instead of the story elements.

It starts out with a showcasing of the different characters' battle styles, Break Soul, Switch Blast, then Charafuda, Chamballoon 2, Fly! Bienfu, Rheaboard riding (localized names not currently known for any of those), searching seas for items, Eleanor in a winter costume, and ends with Laphicet and Velvet's Mystic Artes.

ToB Scans-DLC Costumes, New Characters, Cooking, and More

New magazine information for Tales of Berseria has surfaced.
First I'll get the new characters out of the way.
External Image
The man on the left is Rokurou's older brother and head of their family, Shigure Rangetsu, voiced by Kazuya Nakai (previously Moses in Tales of Legendia and Presea and Alicia's father in the Symphonia drama CDs). He's also an exorcist.

The man on the right is named Melchior, voiced by Nobuo Tobita. He's also an exorcist and advisor to the savior, Artorius.

After that are the costume DLC.

Announced so far are a Summer Vacation set (400 yen, includes 3 color variations), Japanese Style set (300 yen), and a Pirate set (300 yen).

You can also see that attachments, as expected, are still in. They still have the "attachment set cost" from Zestiria though, which can limit which attachment combinations you use and how many, so despite there being three slots you may end up only being able to equip two.

And finally the last scan confirms a few things. There will be Katz Boxes found on the map that will contain treasures though it doesn't specify exactly what. A minigame involving cards with Tales characters on them is also shown. And finally the traditional cooking system is back, so as with past games, you will need to gather the specified ingredients for each recipe in order to make them (just for fun, the one featured in the screenshot is Prickleboar Sausage).

ToB Gameplay Videos, English Screenshots, Subtitled Trailer

Bandai Namco released more gameplay videos of Tales of Berseria for e3, a combat video and an exploration video. Unfortunately, they're still in Japanese so nothing in English in terms of voice overs yet, but there ARE English screenshots released alongside them as well as a subtitled version of the long version of trailer 3.
They've also confirmed that FLOW's "BURN" will be included in the localized release. The release window is still early 2017, so we'll have to wait a bit longer for a finalized date.
