Bandai Namco has shared new details and screenshots for Tales of Berseria.

First, you can find the new screenshots above as well as below:

We also got introduced to the new characters Oscar Dragonia and Teresa Linares. Here’s a brief synopsis for each character, via Bandai Namco:

Oscar and Teresa hail from the Abbey, an organization of exorcists that were established to protect people from the threat of daemons, humans who have turned into creatures from the Daemonblight disease. The Abbey leads political and military action in the Holy Midgand Empire with the mantra “sticking to reason brings order and peace.” Exorcists of the Abbey are ranked by their ability and are divided between three ranks: Legate, Praetor, and Orderly.

Oscar Dragonia – A strong Praetor exorcist with a strong sense of duty to eradicate all daemons. He is from the Dragonia family, a major aristocracy in the Holy Midgand Empire and Teresa is his older half-sister.

Teresa Linares – A Praetor from the Abbey who governs Hellawes, a northern town in the Holy Midgand Empire. She is known as the “Frozen Queen” because of her cold and stoic personality, although she dotes on Oscar, her younger half-brother, and will show emotion when she is alone with him.

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

    Why couldn’t we play as either Oscar or Teresa on a daemon Holy Crusade?
    Just ONCE I want a game where the evil, bloodletting demon things are hunted and killed by a holy order/sect and there’s no “surprise! knights are bad and monsters are misunderstood”!

    Was the last Tales game worth playing? (I’m on PC)

    Tales of Xillia 2 was pretty good, though! Ending had potential to go full Drakengard but didn’t, though that said it’s still my favorite of the series.

    Guess I should cross my fingers then, for this Tales game to be anything worth :/

    Zestiria was a pretty good game it has some problems but overall I enjoyed it and the music is very good.

    If you get it on PC make sure you get the tzfix mod, that makes the game 60 fps and fixes some other things as well.

    Fusion mechanic ruins combat, shortens your party by making you technically losing a member
    Characters were very mediocre to insufferable
    Story DLC shilling
    Framerate issues and wonky animations at times
    And the plot was just limp overall, with certain characters literally walking out of the narrative with barely a hand wave.

    That said, I’m sure this game will be much more interesting and properly designed. If the story and characters will be any good is up to see, but mechanically, visually and thematically this game is looking very up.

    Even then, the church isn’t GOOD
    there aren’t any GOOD characters in Berserk

    Why do I have this itching feeling that Oscar is going to be a massive dick?

    Judging how “daemons” are people that turn into monsters, and the protags freaky arm, you might not be far off.
    > Purge all daemons, even if the person hasn’t fully turned. There’s no cure.
    > But it’s nasty and-
    It’s typical for Tales games though (even beings worshipped as gods turn out to be evil, or so neutral they basically act as evil), but I wouldn’t mind it being about smoting demons while trying to save the protag before she turns.
