New Characters, Story and Features Revealed for Tales of Berseria
BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe has revealed today, new characters, story details and features for Tales of Berseria, the next opus in the beloved ‘Tales of’ series.
Oscar Dragonia and Teresa Linares are both praetors of the Abbey, the organization of exorcists.
Oscar is a strong praetor exorcist who fights against Velvet as she tries to flee from Titania, the prison island.
Teresa is the praetor exorcist who governs Hellawes, the north town in Midgand Holy Empire. She calls Laphicet “Number Two” and has tethered him to use his Malak artes.
Oscar is serious in his work but he shows great hostility towards daemons. His elder half-sister Teresa is called the ‘Frozen Queen’ because she carries out her duties without emotion. Meanwhile in the story, Velvet meets Dyle, a lizard daemon who was a member of the shipping guild – but he transgressed and experienced the onset of daemonblight. He is now being chased by the Abbey.
New combat moves and skills will be featured in TALES OF BERSERIA – with a new attack type included in the Liberation-LMBS (Linear Motion Battle System). ‘Mystic Artes’ are powerful special attacks that cause huge damage to enemies with an impressive cut-in animation. Players can also strengthen a character to activate new and hidden skills as the game progresses. There are lots of different effects that skills can have on a character, with three types of equipment skills that can be activated: the ‘Master Skill’, the ‘Enhancing Bonus’ and the ‘Random Skill’.
TALES OF BERSERIA will be available in early 2017 for PlayStation®4 and PC via STEAM.
