A new Tales game featuring a ... what!? The lead Protagonist is a what!? - Tales of Berseria announcement

Namco-Bandai (I'm sure you know the name if you know of the "Tales of" series,) has announced a new game during the "Tales of Festival" (livestream was available here) to be known as Tales of Berseria. Holy cow, just look at that logo. It seems to be a person standing with... what's either a long cape, or REALLY long flowing hair, scattering into the breeze....

Ah, a moment for our war-torn warrior, how many scars does he bare? How many tears has he -- ... what? This is what? His name is Velvet? And he's not a guy? ヽ(`⌒´)ノ WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?!



Welp, unless there's a new update. It seems that for the first time in Tales of history, the role of the star protagonist is going to be a female role. Her name is Velvet and she looks like quite the bonafide heroine already.

"I won't give up, no matter how many times it takes, I'll hold onto them."  *
Talking bout her dreams maybe? She seems like a strong girl with a life of pain awaiting her. ╭(๑¯д¯๑)╮

She's voiced by Rina Satou, who has done the voice of Coral from Tales of Hearts, Vert/Lady Green Heart from Neptunia, Rixia Mao in Ao No Kiseki (I love those games~), Yuuki Kasokabe in ToHeart 2, Miasaka Mikoto from Railgun, and -- well the list goes on. To put it simple, she's got a number of experience in the profession. So I'm sure she'll do a good job.

Some more news on the game itself, it will be multi-platformed on both Sony's Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 consoles! So if you've played Tales of Graces F, Symphonia Chronicles, or the Xillia series, you'll still be able to play it without having to buy a new console~ Wonderful.

Also; apparently they got UFOTABLE (famous for their beautiful animation of the Garden of Sinners / Kara no Kyoukai) to animate the cutscenes! So we can expect some Grade-A quality scenes.


Gameplay has not been announced yet! But you can bet your coin purse I'll stay updated on this game, since I loooove the Tales of RPG series~


This is Four, over and out.

P.S. Japanese Teaser website is apparently here. There's nothing on it as of now, but we can all wait with much anticipation.

P.S.S. *This is my interpretation, my Japanese is garbage so I reviewed translations on a number of sites. If the exact translation comes available (or you know Japanese) please let me know.
