New info regarding Tales of Berseria released
In terms of world setting, we are given new details on the game’s backstory and information on exorcists, holy warriors who can fight against daemons, and the abbey, an organization that aims to maintain the world’s order. The new world setting information according to the blog post that provided the above details is to, “Berseria’s world is full of conflict and tensions! Nothing is ever just black and white, as is common with Tales games.”
In terms of new characters, we are introduced to Rokurou, a 22-year-old dual blade wielder. While Rokurou supports Velvet, the main character, he does adopt a natural attitude towards her. While he accompanies Velvet, Rokurou cares for Laphicet and wishes that Velvet would improve her attitude to the child.
