ToB Scan-Recent Info

There's a new magazine article for Tales of Berseria covering the recent information given on the series' anniversary.

First off, Velvet has a last name. There's no official spelling yet, but it's written as "Kurau" in katakana.
Outside of his official art being shown here, Lypheset's race (spelling still not official) is listed as being a "holy/sacred servant." The Japanese term here is read "seirei" which is pronounced the same as the Spirits of the series, but the kanji is different.
The section on the battle system basically covers what we already know from the other announcement or could guess: Velvet is a frontline fighter, while Lypheset uses healing/offensive artes.
It's somewhat hard to read the text outside of that. I can tell one segment is talking about the compass he carries though.

ToB PV 2, New Character, Some Battle System Info

Lastly, a new Tales of Berseria trailer has been put up with a bit of info, including a release window of sometime in 2016.

The character you see below is a boy named something like Lypheset (guessing that one), designed by Minoru Iwamoto (art director for several games in the series, designer of Edna and Zaveid) and voiced by Azumi Asakura.

As for the battle system, we know three things so far: Controlling characters with free run as a base, able to control camera freely, can map artes to all four face buttons (X, O, Square, Triangle).

Tales of the Rays announced, ToZ anime named

Tales of the Rays, a new mobile title was announced. The character designs are by Hidenori Matsubara (new to the series). The main character is a boy named something like Iks Neve (CV: Natsuki Hanae, 17 years old, 178 cm, 68 kg).

The Tales of Zestiria anime airing next year has been given a final name of Tales of Zestiria the X (X pronounced as Cross here).

Lastly, another part of Tales of Asteria has been announced titled Tales of Asteria: Kesshou no Daichi to Michibiki no Hikari (something like "The Crystallized Land and the Guiding Light"). Sorey and Mikleo have been confirmed characters.

Lots of news coming.

Two New Trademarks

Bandai Namco filed two new trademarks for Tales of the Rays and Tales of Zestiria the X in Europe. Whatever those are. Perhaps it'll be something we'll find out during the stream later.
