Bandai Namco have released some brand new information about upcoming RPG Tales Of Berseria – we’ve had some all new details about the back story, new characters and the battle system.

Tales Of Berseria

The official Tales Of blog revealed some all new details about the back story of Tales Of Berseria:

“In this world, exorcists fight against daemons. Exorcists belonging to Abbey and are sent to various towns and ports to protect the common people there from the threat of daemons, in order to maintain order in the country. They are welcomed as heroes and Abbey’s ideology is slowly spreading among the people.
Velvet is driven by an urge for revenge against the savior and she deepens the conflict with Abbey which gets in her way.
Exorcists exploit Malaks and utilize their power to fight against Daemons. Some Malaks look different from humans but regardless of their appearance, exorcists think no Malak has ego.
Most of people who experience Daemonblight go berserk and begin to attack people however some can stay rational. Some have a completely different appearance but some of them apparently look like humans, like Velvet and Rokurou. The pattern of onset varies by the individual.”

Two new characters were revealed too – Rokurou and Eleanor.

Tales Of Berseria

“Rokurou is a young swordsman with a cheerful, pleasant and freewheeling personality. He adopts a natural attitude towards Velvet who moves forward with her intense emotion. He experienced an onset of Damonblight a few years ago and became a daemon. However he keeps moving his way to take advantage of that power to master his family’s swordplay style without giving up his hope. He seems to stay rational even though he is a daemon. He takes good care of people and supports Velvet who charges ahead and takes care of Laphicet who has no his own idea.”

“Eleanor belongs to “Abbey”, the organization of exorcists. She always scrambles as a praetor to release the world from the threat of daemons. She is so sober that she does not forget to have compassion for the others and she also has a stubborn aspect to always do right things in the right way. She is honest and easily exposes her emotion but she recognizes her inexperience and tries hard to stick to ruthless “reason”.”

Finally, we got some new details on the evolution of the battle system, the biggest change being the ability to control the camera in-battle with the right stick. There are more details about the battle system on the blog – check it out through this link.
