Check Out the First Swimsuit DLC for Tales of Berseria

Bandai Namco has shared a new trailer for Tales of Berseria.

Featured above, the new trailer introduces the first batch of swimsuit downloadable content being released for the game.

The swimsuits run the gamut of styles, including traditional Japanese, Pirate, and generic summer-like ones.

Tales of Berseria is launching for both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in Japan on August 18th, followed by a PC and PlayStation 4 release in North America and Europe sometime early next year.

    The pirate costumes are quite good. I especially like the Viking one considering they are the original pirates.

    And watch them NOT come west ’cause they’re to sexual for us prudish westerners.

    Zestiria’s came though, I think we can trust bandai namco in that front.

    Eh, they’re not censoring this game so I wouldn’t see why they’d censor the swimsuit DLC.

    Developers promised there would be no censorship for Velvet’s outfit so there’s a good chance they have no interest in censoring other content.

    Nah, no way Bamco is missing out on selling these extra costumes as DLC.

    And none of them look inappropiate.

    Another announcement of paid DLC comprising of small aesthetic items that only a few years ago would have been earned through completing in game challenges, coming long BEFORE the game is even released. “First Batch” Too? My, what times we live in.
    I am still looking forward to the game though.

    inappropiate is highly subjective

    Velvet is a total cutie with that beach look

    I mean for western sensibilities. Swimwear. Cleavage. Stupid hats. Some things in some of the more recent censored games is at least worth discussing if you ask me, but not this. Obviousy someone somewhere might find Pokemon inappropriate.

    You can buy swimwear DLC for the existing titles, dude. Some of them ain’t even that old.

    The pirate costumes seems to fit the crew much more than their default costumes, especially for Velvet.

  25. Pilebunker

    I don’t know why people are arguing about censorship. The important thing is they’re announcing DLC for costumes before the game is even out yet. Costumes used to be very abundant in some of the Tales games and now they cut some of them out to add as DLC. With the DLC in Zesteria and how they insulted their fans with it. You would think they would calm down on the DLC for at least one game.

    That aside, I really like the pirate crew costumes. That drill hair.

    considering that all of the swimsuit DLC made it over the west in previous Tales games, i am would be inclined to believe this will be no exception.

  27. MegaRay
    June 30, 2016 at 10:58 pm

    Even FF XV got a DLC announcement before the game is even out. Its a normal thing now, sadly.

    Sadly this practice took roots and it isn’t going anywhere.But I guess it’s fine if it’s only cosmetics and it’s not affecting the gameplay or the story in some way.

  29. RPG
    July 1, 2016 at 4:44 am

    Yeah. It is just the practice itself that I find extremely insulting. Especially since like I said, this would be things that not too long ago we would have been able to just unlock.
    Like you said though, if this kind of shit is going to happen, at least it is relatively small things like this, and not something that can greatly affect the game in some way.
    We don’t have to like it, and therefore we don’t have to (and should not) support it.

  30. gamebabble

    I feel ya’. There is absolutely 100% no reason why these would get censored. Namco SAID no censorship, no previous Tales were censored, and all the outfits are SUPER tame…but you never know. Censorship these days is random and nonsensicle.

    Also didn’t Namco say they were censoring the new God Eater in some way? So there is that bit of concern.

    Really censorship is so rampant these days it’s hard NOT to be worried about every single new game out of Japan.

    What the-WHERE DID ALL THESE COOL CHARACTERS COME FROM?! I mean I LIKE Velvet’s design but I swear all the recent character reveals were super “meh” and I hadn’t really liked a lot of recent Tales casts…and then I see this! Drill hair? Fox girl? What?!

    Okay, Hype +10. I wanted this before but NOW I want it MOAR.

    Wish more people would follow the Witcher 3 model.Cosmetic stuff is free but there are proper expansions that are worth the asking price.

  33. RPG
    July 1, 2016 at 9:11 am

    Exactly. That was how the traditional model was, with games like the Elder Scrolls series (Horse Armor aside, ahem), Half-Life, Diablo, etc., and how it should be.

  34. Feniks

    Doubtful, Tales costumes have never been censored and they’re a big money maker for Bamco.

    The Tales games are known and popular for having lolis and shotas. It’d be like removing guns from Doom.

  35. Joe

    Don’t forget they were about to allow paid Skyrim mods until people rebelled. They will probably reintroduce the idea with the next Elder Scrolls.

  36. RPG
    July 2, 2016 at 3:09 pm

    That is very true. Never forget. Although that is more the result of Bethesda and Valve’s fuckery than as opposed to the traditional expansion model of the series in the past. Hopefully they don’t pull that bullshit again.
