Tales Of Berseria, the new entry of the Tales Of series currently in development for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, has been revealed less than a month ago so there’s very little we know about the game, other than the fact that it will be the first entry of the series to feature a female protagonist called Velvet.
The game’s Japanese website has received a new update earlier today which added information on the game’s setting and main character, which have already been revealed in the past few weeks by Japanese magazine, as well as some screenshots. Some of them have already been shown but a couple more are entirely new. You can take a look at the screenshots by going at the end of this post.
Tales Of Berseria will be set in the sacred kingdom of Midgand which comprises several large lands and islands. While the kingdom has been knowing great prosperity in the past years, which has also allowed its inhabitants to focus on the advancement of ship building technology and sailing, things seem to be getting worse, with the climate becoming harsher than before. It’s noted that the whole kingdom has becoming colder, with the northern regions getting buried in snow, and that changes in the ocean currents are forcing trade ship to follow specific routes, routes infested by pirates.
Tales Of Berseria’s main character will be Velvet, a young girl who once had a very friendly personality. Following an unspecified incident which happened three years before the beginning of the game, Velvet has become a completely different person without a trace of her older easy going nature.
Tales Of Berseria is currently in development for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 and it will be released on a yet to be confirmed release date in Japan. The game hasn’t been announced for the West but it’s been recently trademarked in Europe so there’s a really good chance that we will be getting the game in the future. More news on Tales Of Berseria will be coming soon so stay tuned for all the latest news.
