Embark on a journey of self-discovery as you assume the role of Velvet.
Tales of Berseria is a role-playing video game developed and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. It is the sixteenth main entry in the Tales series. In Tales of Berseria, players embark on a journey of self-discovery as they assume the role of Velvet, a young woman whose once kind demeanor has been replaced and overcome with a festering anger and hatred after a traumatic experience three years prior to the events within Tales of Berseria. Berseria will mainly take place in the Holy Midgand Empire, a powerful country that rules over this world’s archipelago of a continent. The game’s world is shared with Tales of Zestiria, although the events will occur in the distant past of Zestiria. There are countless numbers of islands around, and Midgand’s rule crosses even the seas. Areas of land and islands in the game are divided into “territories.” Along with humans, one of the other main races is the Malakim (singular: Malak), supernatural spirits who are now used by humans as slaves to utilize their magical abilities after being made visible to even normal humans due to the incident 3 years prior to Velvet’s escape from her prison. Velvet will join a crew of pirates as they sail across the sea and visit the many islands that make up the sacred kingdom of Midgand in an all-new adventure developed by the celebrated team behind the Tales of series.

Tales of Berseria Review:
Tales of Berseria is a surprisingly strong showing for this long-running series. Its tragic story of broken people fighting on the wrong side of history makes it utterly compelling, and its well-tuned combat more than makes up for its lack of interesting environments. Veteran Tales of character designer Mutsumi Inomata has personally designed Velvet and famous Japanese animation studio, ufotable, returns to animate the game’s breathtaking cutscenes; delivering truly epic and emotional storytelling in their unique style. As with previous Tales games, characters can interact through Skits, animated clips that play outside cutscenes and battle: characters are represented by head-and-shoulder portraits, and conversations can range from serious to comedic. New to the series' Skit systems is a cut-in effect, where at certain moments within skits characters in various poses will appear in response to the dialogue. Tales of Berseria isn’t a reinvention of the series, but it delivers a more emotional story mixed with a great combat system to make this adventure worth taking. Simply put, this is a tale too heartbreaking to miss, or to forget.
