New magazine information for Tales of Berseria has surfaced.
First I'll get the new characters out of the way.
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).
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.
This is actually the first of two gameplay posts since I'm late to posting these (at my sister's house, had to wait until I could borrow her computer), but these are videos of Tales of Berseria played by the editors of Famitsu, Viva! Tales of Magazine, and Dengeki PlayStation.
Daisuki.net finally announced what was obvious based on their uploading the trailers and will be simulcasting Tales of Zestiria the X worldwide* starting July 3, 11:30 PM JST (*except Japan, China, will be delayed by a week in some areas). Subtitles will be available in English, German, French, Italian, European Spanish, Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, and Traditional Chinese.
A commercial and trailer for the upcoming anime, Tales of Zestiria the X, has been added to the official site. The embedded trailer has English subtitles while the commercial doesn't, but the commercial does have part of the opening theme "Kaze no Uta" by FLOW playing in it.
