    New info here.

    Looks like the first next-gen only Tales - announced for PS4 and PC.

    Revolves around a girl called Velvet with a claw for a left hand. There's pirates too. And apples.

    It's survival of the fittest. My forum post for the win!

    @Ror I linked, but you cut'n'pasted. And you never mentioned the apples. Or pirates.

    I didn't mention claw arms either, to be fair.

    Well, I was trying to save your blushes by not mentioning that ;-)

    I'm not sure that character's costume is very practical for life on the high seas! :)

    Ror's is in a better category, and a better OP. I'd say Ror's wins.

    :)

    Too late now, it's been locked :p But yeah, this should probably be moved to General considering it's also on PC.

    Hey my bad. Does anyone really play Tales games on a PC though?

    There's only been one so far, but I think it's done reasonably well on Steam.

    Maybe we should get this one locked instead?

    Ah, I'm sure the mods can move it if need be.

    Don't get your hopes up too much, it's on PS3 in Japan. Hopefully the PS4 one will be alright since Namco never include Japanese text on their PC releases.

    Apparently this is set in the same world as Zestiria, though in the past. Also, the boy is supposedly a seraph.

    Looks good. Feel like it could be prettier considering it's PS4 and PC only though.

    The protagoness is half werewolf or something? Or is that very bad eczema?

    It's PS3 as well, we just aren't getting that version in the west.

    Even when the games stop supporting the PS3, I doubt much will change. They don't seem to have a particularly large budget for these games, sadly.

    "Based upon the seriesf gLinear Motion Battle Systemh, the battle system in Tales of Berseria has evolved in the following ways:

    1.The playerfs default control is free run
    2.The player can rotate the camera freely
    3.The player can assign multiple artes to any of the four buttons: ›, ~, ¢ and  , allowing different artes to be linked together in attack combinations.
    "

    I don't think it's possible to have low enough expectations to be impressed by 'amazing' features such as 'free run'.

    At this point they could just release a Tales game maker that juggles around a few variables and story elements and every user can have their own Tales game.

    Call your protagonist Axel Swordheart twiddle a few settings and you're good to go.

    I work on a boat often, she'd freeze to death! Boats are either boiling hot or ice cold, mainly ice cold!

    Looks quite nice. Make sense that it is PS4/PC only this time. I can imagine the PS3 version of Tales of Zestrira sold feck all in the west.

    @Fourfoldroot I could care less about the sad fan service nonsense. I think it detracts from the game more than anything.

    @Fourfoldroot It is nothing to with being a social warrior (though if you want see the issues of the treatment in women in Japan, that is another story, but it is rather awful, you know a country where sexual harassment is legal). I just see it as cheap and detracting from a good game.
