    When Artorius performed that ritual, did I just see the emblem of Innominat appearing in the sky?! Well, it is logical though because the crest of Innominat is found in Artorius' Throne...

    • JaidynReiman

      Well, Innominat does in fact appear in the game... This is a spoiler thread, would you like to know who it is?

      • Simon Low

        Yeah. Who is innominat actually? 0.0

        • a745

          Innominat is the seraphim reincarnation of Velvet's brother, Laphicet. The Laphicet party member is different.

          • Simon Low

            I see. It is quite logical because the "dragon-like" thing ate his brother when Artorius performed the ritual.

          • JaidynReiman

            "his" brother? Who are you referring to by "his"?

            Yeah, Innominat is Laphicet, the real Laphicet, brought back as a seraph. (The playable Laphicet is a seraph Velvet met who resembled her brother, so she named him Laphicet; though he is also related to her in a different way...)

          • Simon Low

            Oh, it was a typing mistake. I meant HER brother. Velvet's younger brother.

          • Gab the Greddy

            so. if the velvet brother is a malak innominat, who is the party laphi?

          • Miry

            Isn't her brother's name "Laphi" (and not Laphicet) ? She named it that way in Tales of Zestiria the X. Or is it nickname ?

          • a745

            It's a nickname of sorts. She calls her brother "Laphicet" in a later cutscene.

          • Miry

            Ok, thx.

  • Simon Low

    The biggest mystery yet is, how far actually are Zestiria and Berseria apart?!?! I timeline hasn't really been confirmed but everyone on various website is like, "Berseria takes place centuries before Zestiria." "Berseria takes place 1000 years before Zestiria" Just because they saw these two HINTS.
    -The existence of Aifread's Pirate Gang in Berseria. And the fact that Aifread used that Hunting Field 1000 years ago.
    -The fact that a lot of technology from Berseria was lost in Zestiria.

  • Trí Leon

    I think Seres have something to deal with Lailah since she have same arte as lailah ( also she using fire) and when Velvet absorb her, she can use fire ball...... ????

    • Simon Low

      Maybe they just have similar battle style... XD The only thing these two are similar is that MAYBE Seres is something like a Prime Lord for the Exorcist Artorius, like Lailah a Prime Lord for the Shepherd Sorey.

      • Trí Leon

        I think. about different way: Since like u know in tales of berseria, we dont have any Seraph ( maybe they not exist yet) also same with Shepherd, Like maybe, just maybe in the ending, Velvet will do something like sacrifice to release all of the soul she absorb ( Include Seres) and they transform to Seraph, Aizen will change to dragon ( we all know, but his little sister, Edna maybe will be one of the soul that Velvet will absorb) and Laciphet May become the first Shepherd, Eleanor may have some connection with alisha, but i have no idea about what will happen to Rokurou and Magilou

        • Simon Low

          Nah, I don't think so. Because some names are different in the past, but they are still refering to the same things as in Zestiria.
          Exorcists = Shepherds
          Daemon = Hellion
          Malak = Seraphim (Everyone could see seraphim in Berseria, they only can't when the Seraphim decide to turn invisible.)
          Daemonblight = Malevolence (instead of energy generated by negative emotions, they believed it to be some kind of disease)

          Basically, this is what I got after watching the first hour of Berseria. which confirmed most of my theories I've thought of after watching the trailers. Artorius became the first shepherd(exorcist) by performing the "ritual" to free the world from the curse of this Daemonblight wich turn people into Hellions(Daemon). Many seraphim descended after he did the ritual. (possibily the five great lords) Also, Velvet got the "devilish arm" in the process of the ritual. Eizen will not become a dragon, at least not until Berseria's plot finish first... He probably became a dragon somewhere in between Berseria and Zestiria.

          I could still be wrong a little because I only understood a bit what they are saying in game.

          • JaidynReiman

            I'm pretty sure most of these terms are just differences between the localization honestly. These were in Zesty as well. I'm pretty sure at least Daemon and Malak were the names for Hellions and Seraphim, respectively, in the Japanese version of Zesty. Daemonblight is a maybe on that as well.

            The Exorcists are obviously predecessors to the shepherds and that is a name change for this game, but the others I believe were in the original Japanese in Zesty and will likely remain when this game gets localized as well (they'll once again be called Hellions, Seraphim, and Malevolence once Berseria gets localized).

          • a745

            Actually, the Japanese words for Hellion (Hyouma) vs Daemon (Goma), Seraph (Tenzoku) vs Malak (Seirei) and Exorcist (Taimashi) vs Shepherd (Doushi) are also different from each other, so it's not a localization thing. They are, however, "meant" to be the same thing, hence why the localization team took the effort to choose localized names that are pretty much connected to each other. Hellions and daemon essentially pertain to something evil, from hell or demons), both Seraph and Malak's etymology is "angel," etc. Their Japanese terms, though different, have the same core meanings, as well.

            The difference was made just to show the difference in cultures between the two games.

          • Miry

            I have a question about that. I saw the cutscene with Artorius' speech and the people were calling him "Doushi" at the end of it. Then, it means that Doushi already exist at this time, isn't it?

          • JaidynReiman

            Perhaps he specifically has the title "Shepherd" because he is the "Shepherd to the people" the one who is guiding them. So they refer to him as the "Shepherd." This is in turn because the name of the Shepherds in the future.

          • a745

            Yeah, what Jaidyn said. Regular Exorcists have similar powers to the Zestiria definition of a Shepherd, though. (I.e take in Seraphim within them, some can armatize, etc).

          • Miry

            I know about that. 😉 I was just wondering about the title "Doushi" since you said that "Taimashi" may be the equivalent of "Doushi" in Berseria's timeline. But Artorius already use the "Doushi" title. So it may be possible that the title already exist at this time. That or Jaidyn's right with his interpretation.

          • a745

            Before the game was released, people speculated that the equivalent or Shepherd was Savior, but I guess they still use the Shepherd term here.

          • Miry

            Actually, you're wrong. In Tales of Zestiria, japanese names were :
            - Doushi = Shepherd
            - Hyôma = Hellions
            - Tenzoku = Seraphim
            There wasn't any "malak/seirei" or "gôma/deamon".

            In Tales of Berseria, we know that Eizen and Zaveid are "Malak/Seirei" so this is just the ancient name for Tenzoku/Seraphim. In other words :

            Tenzoku = Seraphim = Malak = Seirei.

    • a745

      Really inclined to think they're just being lazy at this point. If you'll look at Oscar, he fights exactly like Sorey.

    Laphicet confirmed as Maotelus.

    • Soulwarfare42

      before people were able to see Eizen. So why after can they no longer see him?

      • Simon Low

        No one know. We only know that seraphim suddenly stopped appearing before human in a certain era after Berseria's..... (from a website that showed the full list of Zestiria's timeline)

        • a745

          From what I gathered, priort to the events "3 years ago" malakim/seraphim were also not visible? Or did I understand that wrong? (Apparently it was Artorius and Laphi who could see Seres?). I may have understood that incorrectly though

          • Simon Low

            What I know is that all people can see seraphim in berseria. The only time they cant see them is when seraphim themselves decided to turn invisible. I thought that Seraphim only appeared in this world after Artorius conducted that ritual... or maybe seraphim already existed in the world, but the ritual is needed to summon the five great lords to gain purification powers... Well, this is just me guessing because I can't understand what they are saying. xD

          • moro

            Hmm based on what I know, the Malakim/Seraphim became visible at the Scarlet Night where Celica died and Innominat was reawakened albeit not completely. So naturally, if Innominat was sealed or defeated somehow, the Malakim/Seraphim won't be visible again.

          • JaidynReiman

            From what I've heard, Seres was a human named Celica. She died shortly before Artorius performed the ritual and became a Seraph then (according to my wife she said that she heard Seres died the night prior to the ritual).

            She's also Artorius' wife(?) and Velvet and Laphi's older sister. So that definitely has nothing to do with Malakim/Seraphim suddenly becoming visible; Seres was human.

          • a745

            Wait, something doesn't add up about that, specifically Celica dying the night before the ritual. Celica's death was during the very first animated cutscene, specifically a Scarlet Night a few years before the actual ritual by Artorius (as evidenced by Laphi and Velvet being way younger than they were in the "3 years ago" Scarlet Night). The scene then jumps a few years, and Celica has been long dead. That's when the next Scarlet Night happens and Artorius performs the ritual.

            Now cut to the scene where Velvet eats Seres. As Velvet eats Seres, she also absorbs her memories. She sees from there that Seres has been there all this time with them, but she couldn't be seen. She tearfully says that she truly loved spending time with them and Arthur/Artorius. But her hatred for Artorius began when he killed Laphi and did that to Velvet.

          • JaidynReiman

            Yes, you're right. I misheard what my wife said. I heard her say "the last night." I missed her say "Scarlet" Night in that statement. She was referring specifically to the last "Scarlet" Night, and I just missed the "Scarlet" part.

          • JaidynReiman

            Um, by the way, in regards to Seres before the event 3 years ago (disregarding my first highly misinformed reply lol), I'm pretty sure Seres chose not to be seen. Basically, they can be seen by humans, but they can also choose to be invisible to humans.

            I'm not sure about Laphi being able to see her; its possible she can pick and choose, and she suspected that Velvet would actually recognize her, so she doesn't let Velvet see her (but Laphi wouldn't recognize her because he was too young to remember her). At the very least, though, I do think she chose not to be seen because Velvet would ruin her secret. (It sounds like Velvet did in fact know Seres was her sister before devouring her, she just didn't know that Seres was there even longer unseen.)

            After the events of Berseria, they are no longer visible to most humans except those with strong resonance (as mentioned in the Zesty backstory).

          • a745

            There was a scene early in game where an NPC asks Velvet who the heck Laphi is talking to (but there's no one there) Velvet answers probably to Seres, since Arthur also does it sometimes.

          • JaidynReiman

            Ah, ok. She can probably hide herself from specific people then. As Velvet is a lot older than Laphi, she'd recognize Seres as her sister if she had seen her (maybe not right away, but then again, her voice could also give it away).

    • Ahmad Arzmi

      Man, how do people finish the game so quickly? It's only been a day since release.

      • JaidynReiman

        Actually, the ending movie was just ripped straight out of the game. Someone has beaten it now (the mystic arte of the final boss got revealed), but this was ripped before anyone had reached the final boss.

    • Yokai

      How does Velvet reunite with her dead brother? And why is she sealed?

      • JaidynReiman

        That's a huge spoiler actually. But this is a spoiler chat. He was brought back as a Seraph (just like how Laphicet was killed and brought back as a Seraph; though notably, he wasn't even born yet when he died; his mother's death killed him, and both became Seraph at the same time).

        No idea on what exactly happens to Velvet. I suspect it'll be properly explained in the sequence right before that ending.

        • Yokai

          Why does her Brother/Innominat support Artorius? What exactly is their Plan?

          • Lin

            Innominant supports Artorius since before being reborn. When he was just Velvet's brother, he asked Artorius to kill him so he could be reborn as Innominant. And their plan is to remove the ego from every human in the world, leaving them as mindless drones. It's because the ego is what produces malevolence. Without it, human won't produce malevolence. Of course, a mindless drone isn't much a human. lol

            So they have to kill Innominant to stop this crazy plan, but if they kill him, Laphicet (the one in your party) would die too, because he's linked to Innominant somehow. So, instead of killing him, Velvet seals him away, so Laphicet can keep on living and become Maotelus.

  • a745

    Also, Oscar can apparently armatize lol

    • Simon Low

      Wow, Lost fon drive!!

  • Peter O

    Does anyone know who the cameo battle is yet?

    • Hwa Ryun

      rumors say Jude and Milla

      • Peter O

        Just Jude and Milla? I thought I heard a Xillia 2 track in there?

        • JaidynReiman

          As far as I've read online, no one has fought the cameo battle. We only know its going to be Xillia related because the music is from Xillia.

        • JaidynReiman

          We know Jude and Milla are both bosses now. A video was uploaded with a bunch of mystic artes and both of them have Mystic Artes. No idea if its "just" them, though.

      • Peter O

        Never mind, that was just a boss them from Xillia. lol

      • JaidynReiman

        Apparently no one has actually fought the boss yet. The music was leaked because the music was ripped from the game files.

    • Pokenar

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0TUYP6z7Qw
      Incredibly likely its Jude and Milla

      • Kaydon JAK

        Jude/Milla/Gaius/Ludger?

        • JaidynReiman

          From what I've heard, its sounding increasingly likely Gaius might be involved. In the stream my wife is watching, the guy streaming mentioned after fighting Milla that the characters were talking about a "King Penguin" (the Xillia characters take on the form of penguins in the Berseria world).

    • JaidynReiman

      Jude is in fact a boss. This isn't post-game, though, so its possible it'll be like in Graces where you fight one early, and the others can only be accessed in post-game. (My wife is watching a live stream.)

    • Nicholas Wilder

      On Niconico, The hi-ougi exhibition showed only Milla and Jude. However it missed one of Phoenix's MAs so it's "possible" it missed something else.

      • JaidynReiman

        It also missed the dual mystic arte between Velvet and Laphicet.

        I heard that someone streaming fought both the Mila and Jude battles. Afterwards, he apparently mentioned in the chat that the characters were talking about a "King Penguin." (Milla and Jude appear as penguins for some reason while in Berseria's world.)

  • Kazuna Bolveurk ♣

    There is one important thing I need ask as regardless of the ending looking bittersweet I am liking what I am seeing so far but still I think this question for the overall game is important: Is this really Velvet's story or did they just try to market it that way and in reality Laphciet takes up the center?

    • Lin

      Laphicet is really important, but this is definitely Velvet's story from beginning to end. Not only she drives the plot, but also her world-view represents the main themes of the story. This never changes at any moment along the way.

  • Kaydon JAK

    It's known how many in-game outfits are there?

    • Pokenar

      I saw someone mention they had at least 6 for Velvet.

    • Simon Low

      For Velvet, she can wear Normin outfit, Mieu outfit, traditional outfit, maid outfit, magician outfit, pirate outfit, beach costume, rutee katrea (cameo costume from tales of destiny), Alice in the wonderland, Cinderella, ... And so on. Looks like it is going to be a hell lot of costumes

      • a745

        Some of those aren't in-game though, but paid DLC, specifically the maid, magician, pirate, beach, rutee, Mieu anf Alice. They're 300-400yen each.

        • Simon Low

          Oh, I see. Sorry. I ddn't notice the word IN-GAME there. My bad.

          • a745

            There are in-game beach costumes though, I heard, different from the paid DLC beach ones.

          • JaidynReiman

            I heard that as well, but didn't mention it because I wasn't absolutely certain on that one. But it is really nice to see more in-game costumes for a change.

            There's almost as many as in Vesperia and Graces it sounds like. Nice change from Xillia-Zestiria only having costumes basically as DLC without much else (only one or two characters having more than one real costume, the rest just being recolors).

        • JaidynReiman

          I have heard there is a Waiter outfit for every character.

          Velvet is also interesting; she is seen in two outfits before she gets her "main" outfit. Once you get that outfit, it seems that both of her prior two outfits are unlocked (one where she's wearing a vest and pants and her hair is braided, the other where she's wearing just tattered remains).

  • Appriser

    I was just wondering, did any of the characters end up connecting to the ToZ characters (other than Eizen, of course)?

    • Soulwarfare42

      Well Lachiphet turned out to be Maotelus from Tales of Zestiria. Zaveid from Tales of zestiria makes an appearance and I think Edna does too but I don't know. Hint that maybe Eleanor is ancestor to Rose (Though this more my opinion). That is all I can think off so far

      • Nicholas Wilder

        The Edna that appears is an illusion created by Melchior.

        • Appriser

          Ah thanks guys!! I've had so many theories / thoughts on how or if they would connect anyone~ I heard that Magilou is (a) Mayvin, is that true?

          • JaidynReiman

            Sounds like it.

            Also heard about Edna being an illusion. However, since she is an illusion, she'd have no reason to be created as an illusion if she didn't already exist. Its possible that she went missing and Eizen has taken his current destructive life style because of it. (Maybe he thinks she's dead and is regretting it.)

            Whatever the case, she does appear. Maybe it'll be possible to find the real Edna in a side quest.

          • moro

            Well, as far as I know in the dialogue before the final battle, Eizen is actually quite the siscon since he even threatened Laphicet not to do anything weird to Edna. Also, the reason why Eizen left Rayfalke is because his domain is causing misfortune towards people near him. He does not want Edna to get involved so he left.

            He also exchanged letters with Edna and during the final battle dialogue, he did get a reply from her.

          • a745

            I actually haven't heard about the Magilou is a Mayvin thing, but I'm pretty sure Melchior is a Mayvin. He uses the Mayvin as his surname.

          • Yokai

            What is a Mayvin? I thought Mayvin was just a name, but I didn't play Zestiria.

          • JaidynReiman

            Mayvin is the Storyteller of Time. Its actually a family name and is passed down to the next storyteller. Clearly Magilou and Melchior are part of the same family, but the Mayvin family could be more extensive than we realize (such as the Kreniks in Xillia 2) and they're not closely related.

            Or maybe they are, considering the fact that most of the party has a close connection to the antagonists (the only one that doesn't is Eizen, but he's looking for Aifread who has been captured by the antagonists).

            Mayvin in Zestiria is a single character. He appears throughout the game and also appears in the opening sequence. He's an allied character who aids the party, and is eventually outed as the Storyteller of Time. Through a side quest its revealed there are multiple Mayvins.

          • Vel

            Magilou is a Mayvin, just like Melchior. Both were born with the same purpose. Magilou was an ordinary girl with high resonance, and actually is some-sort-of exorcist. But prefer to be called sorceress.

          • Appriser

            Ah that's great~ I was hoping she'd be a Mayvin, I was guessing she might be because she had so many books, haha. Although I'm surprised there doesn't seem to be any definite ancestors to ToZ. I thought for sure there would be at least one!

  • Juli G.

    Is it true that Ceres was Velvet's older sister and Laphicet is her son with Artorius?

    • JaidynReiman

      That's what I've heard. Ceres' human name was Celica and apparently she died the night before Artorius performed the ritual.

    Anyone wanna see (most) of the Mystic Artes? Go here:

  • Point_Blank

    - It looks like EACH CHARACTER HAS 3 MYSTIC ARTES.
    EVERY MYSTIC ARTE/HI-OUGI IN THE GAME:
    http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm29477381
    - Maotelous = Laphicet
    - Oscar can Armatize(His 'Mystic Arte' is proof of this)
    - Cameo Battles are... Jude and Milla from Tales of Xillia
    - "PHOENIX IS BACK BABY!"
    - Zaveid appears multiple times
    - At long last.... "AIFREAD IS REAL!!!!"
    We get to see him and tbh, I WANT A 'Tales of' GAME WITH HIS STORY. He look WAY BADASS for just an NPC.... I mean... LOOK AT HIM!!!

    • JaidynReiman

      Aifread appeared as a physical character in Tales of Symphonia. And Aifread is also in Vesperia (different version though).

      But dang, so he does appear in this after all. I mean, I kinda assumed he would... but then I heard no one had seen him in the game and I got a little concerned.

      Oh, I actually thought that Laphicet would be a predecessor of Maotelous and not Maotelous himself, but I was still pretty close! 😀 I'm still kinda proud of myself! ^.^

  • roar

    No mention of Zenrus?

    • JaidynReiman

      I do wonder if he'll be brought up. We know Edna and Zaveid appears (Edna only as an illusion, but it proves she does exist at this point in time). And I still highly suspect Ceres might be Lailah (it hasn't been disproven yet last I've seen despite what some may claim).

      • Vel

        Seres is Celica, Velvet's sister, and Artorius lover (Also she was pregnant before her death, and the fetus is tagging along with Velvet)

        • JaidynReiman

          I know that. But it still doesn't rule out the possibility she might also become Lailah. There's several notable aspects about her that are intriguing and connect her to Lailah. One thing I've heard (can't confirm) is that as Celica, she looked a lot like Lailah (even as Ceres she somewhat resembles Lailah, except her hair color is reversed), not to mention the fact that, well... she fights exactly like Lailah.

          Yes this is the case with Oscar fighting like Sorey, but its a different circumstance. Lailah should exist in this time period, so it would be incredibly strange for a totally different person who just happens to exist at the same time fight in the exact same way, and resemble Lailah quite a bit.

          Its highly unusual that although we've seen Zaveid several times, and know Edna is around somewhere (the Edna we see is an illusion, but we know she's around), Lailah has not been seen at all. Speaking of which, we haven't seen any of these fighting styles return either, its only Lailah's that returned of the Seraph.

          Also, my wife was watching the live stream and during some random chatter with NPC's some of them said "Lailah" at some point, several times. But its very strange she hasn't actually appeared yet. Lailah could be a separate character... or it could be that at some point, Ceres took on the alias of Lailah while away from Artorius (and we know she's left Artorius' side before because she does so to help Velvet).

          • a745

            I'm against the whole Lailah is Seres thing mainly because Seres dies early in the game as a Malak/Seraph. She gets devoured by Velvet. Actually, as compared to the anime, in the game Velvet actually kills Seres first before devouring her (quoting Seres, "I don't have long to live, anyway"). She squeezes her head long enough until her entire body goes limp. In turn, Velvet absorbed her powers as well as her memories.

            The Zestiria guides state that once a Seraph is dead, well, they're dead. They don't really have the whole reincarnation thing like the how humans can turn into seraphim. They have long life spans, yes, but they essentially can be "murdered" to extinguish their life.

            And also, Oscar actually has the exact same fighting style as Sorey.

          • JaidynReiman

            We don't know how the whole "devouring" aspect works, though. Seraph are known to reside within humans, and Lailah actually introduces that in Zestiria.

            The main notable aspect about the devouring is that she's more specifically devouring malevolence. Naturally, the whole idea of Seres being Lailiah would mean there'd have to be a side quest in the game where Seres's soul is separated from Velvet and she's brought back.

            If Velvet is largely devouring Malevolence, she devoured Seres and the malevelonce she took in, and possibly separated the malevolence from Seres's soul and this may allow her to somehow be brought back (likely with the help of an exceptionally powerful Seraph, such as Zenrus, one we haven't seen yet but would make a logical choice to cameo, and who has a history with Lailah).

            In any case, supposedly there was a mention of some NPC's mentioning the name Lailah at some point in one of the streams that's going on. It shouldn't be too long until we learn the truth.

            I know that Oscar duplicates Sorey's moveset. I acknowledge this in my previous comment and provide a counter argument.

            The biggest problem is that Lailah, Eizen, and Zaveid were all supposed to have a close connection to Maotelus, and yet so far, Lailah has not had this at all. She hasn't been around at all... unless she is Seres and has been within Velvet most of the game.

            Just food for thought. I'm not dead set on this theory, I just think at this point it makes the most logical sense as to where Lailah is (since she should have shown up by now).

            Also, pretty sure I've seen a pic of Celica as well. She has short black hair, but her face looks almost identical to Lailah. (Also, I've seen some people remark on Seres "changing her personality" to become Lailah. Maybe she didn't change her personality, maybe she just reverted back to the personality she had when she was a human, when she was happy.)

            Again, food for thought. Still too early to know for sure.

          • a745

            I've watched a lot of gameplays and I've yet to see anything that delves into Seres being separated from Velvet, main or sidequest. I do believe Celica looks like Lailah though. http://m.imgur.com/imIYsPu?r

          • Miry

            I read the edit part but something's bothering me : what about Zenrus ? If Tenzoku's life had no end (except if they're killed), why does he look like an aged man ?

          • a745

            As I said, a Seraphim's physical growth stops at the peak of their power. It just so happens that his peak is at that old age. Like, if he had lived longer, give him 1000 more years and he'll still look that old.

            That, and we never actually know if Zenrus is a born Seraph or a human converted into one (if he was from human form and converted at that age, he might have just retained the physical age), though he seems more likely a born Seraph.

          • Miry

            Well, in Zestiria, we saw a statue of young Zenrus and I recalled that someone said (maybe Lailah) that he was extremely powerful at this age. That's why, to me, he reached his peak at this time. But I may overinterpret things.

          • a745

            Well, that's what the official world guidance book says, so I'm inclined to believe that though already powerful at that age, he's a lot more powerful as an old guy.

          • Miry

            Maybe. Did you know where I could buy the official world guidance book please ? It seems really interesting.

          • a745

            It's available at CDJapan, though the entire book is in Japanese: http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/aff/click.cgi/PytJTGW7Lok/3634/A571395/product%2FNEOBK-1836986

          • Appriser

            I think what you said makes sense, while Zenrus was powerful when he was younger, he had a shrine where he was worshipped. By the time of ToZ, he was able to project a very powerful domain without the use of human worship, so he must be more powerful now than in the past.

    Youtube link of the Mystic Artes for those who don't have Nico accounts: https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=3kL66EDZCFc

    • Simon Low

      Yes. The pheonix is back~~!!! Wait, is that Normin rain!? XD

      • JaidynReiman

        From what I heard, he actually has two mystic artes. This video doesn't actually have all of them.

    • Miry

      Teresa's hi-ougi is pretty strange. She looks like a Gôma/Deamon. On the other end, Oscar looks like Sorey in Wind Kamui.

      • Simon Low

        Because they can armatize. Just like how Rose can armatize eventhough she is a squire.

        • Miry

          I know that already (I read all the posts in here before posting). But if my memory serves right, Rose didn't look like a Hyôma when she uses Kamui. That's what surprised me. And it's pretty strange that Teresa is the only one who looks that way. Oscar's Kamui seems "normal".
          That's what I was saying. 😉

          • Simon Low

            I see. Teresa's one definitely looks a bit weird.... Maybe she armatized with a hellion? XD

          • Miry

            I guess it can be possible. I admit I'm really curious about it.

          • JaidynReiman

            From what I've heard, she's not armatized. She is an actual hellion during that battle. Oscar becomes a hellion first and at some point she becomes a hellion. Oscar reverts before his boss battle and then armatizes. (I don't know if Teresa reverts after her battle, but her final battle is fought while she's a hellion.)

          • Yokai

            She allows herself to be bitten in the neck by a Daemon(or maybe even a Daemoneater) to acquire its power. This also seems to be possible with Malays, because that's what the final boss does too. However it appears to be different from Armatization, where the Spirit directly enters the human body.

          • Miry

            With Malak, we only saw Armatization so far.

          • Yokai

            In the final battle, the boss is bitten by a Malak in order to transform. But that seems to be the only case where Malak and Human transform via "Vampire Bite".

            Edit: It's in fact labeled as Kamui/Armatization. But for some reason they did that bite ritual.

          • a745

            Valvrave the Liberator 2.0 :))

          • a745

            Speaking of which, as much as I hate to think of it this way, I’m actually inclined to believe that somehow Oscar and Teresa loved each other romantically? Like, Oscar has this habit of carressing Teresa’s face and vice versa, seen multiple times.

            Before Oscar heads out to test out his new abilities (aka the Armatus), Teresa had vehemently refused to let him go. This kind of angers Artorius and the others and she is stripped of her Exorcist status. Oscar comforts her, carressing her face, telling her that once he gets back to please cook for him again, and that he will restore her honor (condition was if Oscar is successful, they'd reinstate Teresa's Exorcist status). Oscar also adds that in the cold Dragonia household, Teresa was the only one who would look at him with kindness, who would care for him, laugh with him etc

            And during that scene when Velvet accidentally kills Oscar. Teresa goes into a rage monologue of how he was a good boy who, in their cold household, he was the only one who would call her Sister. (From what I understood, Oscar is the legit child of the family and Teresa was probably from outside wedlock but was still taken in by the Dragonias).

            What struck me was Teresa said that on her birthday, Oscar gave her the earring she wears. She says that this is something the family is supposed to give to their bethrothed, but Oscar had refused to do that and gave it to Teresa instead, because Oscar had said then that “We’re supposed to give it to the most important woman of our life,” hence giving her the earring.

            Or maybe they just really love each other as siblings, idk

          • Yokai

            I only understood half of it, but even to me their last scene didn't feel like a normal brother sister relationship.

          • Miry

            When Teresa join the group to save Oscar, she explains that she became an outcast in the family after the death of her mother (at least that's what I understand).

            I don't think that Teresa and Oscar loved each other in a romantic way, even if it can looks like it. They lived as if they only had each other in the world. Oscar saved Teresa from loneliness and vice-versa.
            To me, it looks like they were alone against the whole world and that's why they're so close. But I wouldn't be surprised if some people paired them together. 🙂

      • JaidynReiman

        Teresa and Oscar both transform into Daemon at one point. Teresa's final battle is fought in Daemon form. Right after it, Oscar reverts to human form then armatizes. If he's fought in daemon form its earlier in the game.

        • Miry

          Oscar is the only one who reverts ?

          • JaidynReiman

            She might after her battle, I don't know for sure.

          • Miry

            I just saw a cutscene where Artorius cast a "jutsu" on Oscar (I don't really understand what it was but I understand his life is at stake). Teresa wish to save him. Maybe she transforms because she's unable to do so ?

          • Yokai

            The concept of Artamization is a new concept in the Berseria time period, and thus imperfect. Teresa seems to be worried about him, because that magic has dangerous side effects.

  • Yokai

    There is a Dual Mystic Arte for Laphicet and Velvet! 😮 Enumerable Wound

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_UqpBErVHHE

    • Kaydon JAK

      Very good .... ok guys I am now first out. If I let myself spoilers further, I have nothing more why I should play Berseria yet.

      The alternative color for Velvet but really awesome.

    • Caleb Mitchell

      Enumerable or innumerable?

      • Yokai

        The latter makes more sense actually. xD

  • Simon Low

    From my observation. The design are all based of Xillia's design. But the battles are back to Graces' format. While the lore and settings of the world is based on Zestiria's. And sub-skills are gained from equipments, like in Vesperia. The Ultimate combination ever.

  • Yokai

    I saw a few Walkthrough Videos today and the Group always mentions the word "Kouma/Kyouma(?)" when talking about the Gouma/Daemons. Does anyone know, what it means? One of them seems to have transformed into a girl with odd green hair after devouring its mother, I think?

    • Miry

      If memories serves right, Velvet is a Kyouma. It was translate as "Daemoneaters" in Tales of Zestiria the X. In others words, they can eat Daemon (and Malak).

    • a745

      It's Kuuma.

    A more proper explanation about Magi, correct me if I understood something wrong, I'm not fluent speaker.

    Magilou is Mayvin. Her real name is マギラニカ・ルウ・メーヴィン
    (Magiranika Lou Mayvin).
    Mayvin name is given to humans born with immortal life, chosen by the World to keep watch over the events of time, but they can't interfere, or they'll die.
    (That's why Magilou speaks in lousy words and riddles)

    Melchior is a Mayvin too, and actually was Magilou's teacher for a long while.

    She and Melchior represent two sides of conflict, each standing beside the Lord of Calamity and the Shepherd.
    (Magilou is the chaos, where Melchior is the order.)

    The girl doesn't care at first about the world and humans, but through the game she opens up, and make real friends, finding where her heart truly belong. She starts to really love humans as imperfect as they are.

    Also... Magi was an exorcist at some point. She have exceptionally high resonance.) - Eleanor heard about her, mentioning she's a famous (missing) exorcist.

    Magilou uses a fake name - Magigigika Mirdin Dodin Noruroon Dou.
    (The "Noru" comes from - Normin. She was raised between them. Bienfu and Grimmoire treats Magilou as sister.)

    (((She becomes the first Storyteller, and it seems that later she became a poet, that got buried in Trizolde Cave. - But that's just a theory based on the speech she gave to Melchior, and the words of poem written by female Mayvin, that we hear in Zestiria.)))

    • Simon Low

      Hmm... Sound complicated. XD Actually, the old man(Melchoir) is a Mayvin is pretty obvious. Because his character design looks like someone who has a power to control time, or something that is related to time, which is the "storyteller of time"...... You can kind of guess his identity.

    • Miry

      Thx for this explanation. You may be right about Magilou's grave. I recalled something like that in Zestiria. If that's really the case, it could be very interesting.

    • Erhans Layton

      Actually Magilou named herself as Mayvin because she doesn't agree with the way of Melchior.

      She's taking the Mayvin name to defy Melchior's ways of doing and to be the new Mayvin.

  • Yokai

    Probably the last dual Mystic Arte since they seem to come only in 3 pairs. Not sure about the name.. something Exerion...

      'Penetrate Exerion', it seems

    • cgkt55

      How do I activate the 2nd Mystic Artes? I thought I need a 8 hit combo and 4BG but it only activates the first Mystic Arte with that. What am I missing?

      • Simon Low

        Sorry, I can't really help you because I didn't play the game. Maybe it needs you to attack 8 times to trigger it? Like in Zestiria where you need to attack 4 times in a row to trigger the second mystic arte. (no matter how much hits you've got from combo-ing)

        • cgkt55

          Thanks for the reply anyway! Found out this night, I need to chain 8 artes and not a 8 hit combo. Hits don't matter for that^^

    Hot springs scene ͜͜ʖ ͡° https://youtu.be/EpD3ujhT9Po

    The hot spring made them switch bodies between the girls and boys, lol.

    • Crystal Power

      lololol. Do you get hot spring costumes like Vesperia?

      • Miry

        No, Rokuro is in Eleanor's body. 🙂 Velvet became Laphicet (and viceversa). Eizen switched with Magilou.

        • Crystal Power

          Ah, thank you for explaining! 🙂

  • Gilang Ardhi

    so why exactly artorius betrayed velvet? :/ what's his motives? was he good then corrupted or was he always bad?

    • Yokai

      Heavy Spoilers ahead!!!

      From what info I gathered by now, Artorius sought a way to stop the Daemonblight wich caused the death of his beloved Celica (Velvet's older sister who was also pregnant from Artorius). I don't know exactly why, but at some point he started to conspire with Velvet's younger Brother, who wanted Artorius to sacrifice him in that ritual in order to be reborn as Innominat, a powerful Malak/Spirit. With the power of Innominat, they have the means to achieve Artorius's goal by destroying the human ego, since it's the source of the malevolence that causes the Demonblight. However, this would turn humans into empty shell and that is basically the main conflict between the group and Artorius.

      • Gilang Ardhi

        ah the antagonist with chaotic good personality.... thanks for the info, by the way how's the ending and what happened in the ending of tales of berseria?

        • Yokai

          I'm not 100% sure, but it seems that, after Innominat and Artorius are defeated, Velvet sacrifices herself by sealing herself and Innominat away. Someone said, that Innominat can't be killed because Laphicet would die too, because the two are somehow connected, so I guess that is the reason for the sealing. Four of the five Spirit Lords appear (There is speculation that they are reborn characters that died in the story. Namely Oscar, Teresa, Shigure and Melchior) and they say that there must be a new Leader of the Lords, since Innominat is defeated. Since Laphicet for some reason already bears the power of Purification, he takes up that role and purifies all the Deamons. He then assumes the form of a white light dragon and the name Maotelus.

          • Gilang Ardhi

            What happened to magilou rokurou eleanor and eizen? And is eizen really edna's brother?

          • Miry

            Yes, Eizen is really Edna's brother and he loves her deeply. He wears a pendant offered by Edna. 🙂
            As for what happenned to the group, someone post the ending below. You can see for yourself. 😉

          • Vel

            Also a little detail on how much he loves Edna...
            Eizen's true name is :
            ウフェミュー=ウエクスブ
            Ufemyu ekushibu
            UEGUV EVSIBU
            "Eizen in Love"

          • JCode

            Shouldn't the ウエクスブ part be EIZEN, not the first part? The true names of all tenzoku so far follow the order of ABC=Real name (e.g., Hakudimu=Yuuba with Yuuba being Edna; Firuku=Zadeya with Zadeya being Zaveid).

            It's interesting you bring this up since when I first saw this true name and wondered whose name it could be. I cracked the ウエクスブ part and got this:

            ウエクスブ
            [uekusubu]
            UEKUV
            EISEN
            I did not expect it was Eizen's true name so it's likely less biased. I think reading ウエクスブ as ekushibu is too much of a stretch.

          • JCode

            A small addition: Since "ku" is pronounced quite similarly to "gu", it could be as follows:
            ウエクスブ
            [uekusubu]
            UEGUV
            EIZEN

          • Yokai

            What in the world is the pattern behind these names? ^^ How would you make "Eizen is love" out of UEGUV EVSIBU?

          • Vel

            The old language is scary.
            @JCode, could you try to translate what you've got?
            I got exactly that "biased" translation from it.
            Maybe you'll get something less silly than me, and we won't have another implied brother-sister love in Berseria.

          • JCode

            Haha, I'm not saying that Eizen doesn't love her sister. Wouldn't be surprised if his true name has something to do with Edna. I was just pointing out that ウエクスブ is probably not "INLOVE" but is "EIZEN" instead. That leaves the first part of the name (ウフェミュー) unknown.

            So far I've mostly gotten gibberish from the "ufemyuu" part. The table (as you posted) is still incomplete + we still don't know how they actually go from the pronunciation we know (e.g., Yuuba) to the old tongue writing (e.g., UYVA) so it's basically just guesswork so far. The farthest I've gotten a meaningful word from the "ufemyuu" part is ELDER but I don't think Eizen's true name would be Elder Eizen, haha! Oh... or maybe it's referring to Eizen as an elder brother?? No idea.

            Also the meaning we get from reverse-translating their true name seems not the same as the meaning we were told in the side materials anyway... (e.g., reverse-translating gives "GAMBOL EDNA" but the book told us the meaning was "Early-bloomer Edna" - Eizen did refer to "early-blooming flower" when talking about Edna in Berseria as well).

            AND I TOTALLY FORGOT!! That translation table that we both use might not be entirely correct. Since the person wrote Zaveid's true name as "Zabie" when it's actually "Zadeya". We could both be wrong for all we know. I do hope the side materials will give us a clearer idea on how to translate amongst the 3 languages in the games.

          • Vel

            Let's not forget that for example Edna's name in japanese is "Hakudimu Yuuba" and in english it's "Hephsin Yulind" both would give different meanings, I guess? Maybe that's the reason behind two completely different translations?
            Bamco need to release side materials sooner than last time. If I remember correctly, it came out few months after game release?

          • Vel

            [Update]
            Ah, I worked with what you've got, and the translated name seems to be Shinigami Eizen !
            Thanks for help, I would live laughing from Eizen till english release.

          • JCode

            I see ~ I presume you got REAPER EIZEN from the translation then. That sounds like Eizen alright. I hope the side materials for Berseria will be comprehensive. Lots of information was omitted from Zestiria's side materials because they could not reveal too much before Berseria...

          • Vel

            Precisely~!

            Thanks once again!
            I think that I'll keep the wrong translation up too, just for fun. Mostly thanks for "waitress mayhem" that was put in Tales Magazine.

          • sukirutski

            Were do we see his true name.

          • Yokai

            Well, they survive and kinda go on with their lives, typical Tales style. Like helpings some NPCs rebuilding their villages or going on a new journey. For some reason, Eizen is now invisible to his former crew mates, either by choice or as an effect of what Laphicet/Maotelus does to the world during the ending cutscene. A link to the ending scene is bit further down the comment section.

            Eizen is Edna's brother, however he left her, because his domain seems to be cursed and he doesn't want to hurt her. They apparently exchange letters to stay in touch.

          • Gilang Ardhi

            ah okay, and what about the game itself? is it better than tales of zestiria? (story and gameplay-wise) and would you recommend people to play this game more than zestiria? thankkss ^^

            From the gameplay, I think the game is even better than Zestiria in a lot ways. You have full party member, dont need to worry about members leaving for most of the game. The camera improved a lot. And you don't have that kind of 4-attack-per-combo limit. As long as you have enough Soul Gauge (something like SC in Zestiria) You can continously attacking. The battle is set in free run. For the story, it catch player's attention very fast. Unlike Zestiria starts off pretty slow... Berseria kind of gets into the plot very fast. Just a first few hours of the game, you are already breaking out of the prison, then meet a few party members. (although they dont really join you in battles at first, they are just tagging around. they join you a bit later) The everything in the world looks a lot more colourful. Dungeons feel a lot less copy and paste. Probably, I think this is one of the better/best Tales game since Abyss, Vesperia etc.

            thank you for the review hehehe i was just worried i'd be disappointed by the game like i did with zestiria, so is there any arena battle?

          • Simon Low

            No colisuem. But there will be malevolent crucible(it is called differently in berseria). Unlike Zestiria, it is not enclosed area. It is in open space, you can see the sky. Basically, you fight various hellions...
            This is another information about the monsters battle in fields.. There will be monsters roaming around the field called first class monsters. Much like zestiria's optional hellion bosses.(some are sidequest related) however, you may meet "roaming monsters" sometimes if you are unlucky. They appear randomly sometimes after a monster battle. (Not sure if you can run from it, I think you can?) Roaming monsters are a lot stronger that first class monsters. The game will have a lot of mini games. Like waiter/waitress, popping balloon etc. Cooking is back. And there is a "sea search" feature, similar to kitty dispatch in xillia 2.

          • Gilang Ardhi

            and what about cameo battle? is it in the crucible too?

          • Simon Low

            No, they won't appear in crucible. Jude and Milla are the cameo in Berseria. Not sure if we will meet them in the bonus dungeon or maybe as some sort of sidequest.... At least, I know Zaveid appeared a few times in the plot. Edna appeared once as an illusion created by an antagonist for a few seconds before being shot by Zaveid with his guns, to later found out it is a fake Edna. That really TROLLED people very hard. One comment I saw saying: "The best girl trolls better when it is not her". I heard people saying Lailah was mentioned by some NPC but we never get to meet her, unfortunately.

          • Gilang Ardhi

            Okayy thank you so much ^^

  • phoenixmiko

    Who in Berseria are the Five Lords mentioned in Zestiria? Do we find out why Eizen became the dragon we see in the sequel? Do any of the other seraphim from Zestiria excluding Zaveid appear or get mentioned?

    • Yokai

      Eizen is a Malak. ^^ That's basically the Berseria term for Spirit. Normin are also Malaks, just like some (if not all) Normin in Zestiria are Seraphim.

      The five Lords in Berseria are Musiphe, Amenoch, Eumacia and Hyano. They appear at the End of the game and are probably Humans from the story who were reborn as powerful Malak (They seem to have the same voices as four particular characters).

      Edit: Innominat and his successor Motels also appear.

      Daemons are very similar to Hellions. In fact, they might even be the same since it's people's malevolence that causes the Daemonblight.

      When a Malak/Spirit/Seraphim is overcome by Malevolence, they turn into Dragons, which is a powerful type of Daemon/Hellion. I guess that's simply what happens to Eizen in the 1000years between Berseria and Zestiria.

      • Vel

        Eizen was already dragonizing in Bersria, but he's suppressing it with his own will, using the power for himself.
        Even being around the Lord of Calamity, or absorbing another dragon (Shenlong, or rather Theodora - female Seirei and Zaveid's lover) isn't fueling his transformation - he's that badass.

      • Simon Low

        Daemon and Hellion are the same. But about the malevolence, people in Berseria thought malevolence was some kind of disease(daemonblight) rather than negative energy emitted from negative human emotions.

    • Miry

      Like it was said before :
      Tenzoku = Seraphim = Malak = Seirei
      Hyôma = Hellion = Gôma = Daemon

      They're one and the same. Malak/Seirei is just the name used during the Berseria's era and Tenzoku/Seraphim is the one used in Zestiria. But it's the same thing.

      In Berseria, the "Lord of Calamity" (or the one who is the closest to it) is Velvet, since she opposed the Doushi/Shepherd Artorius.

      From Berseria, we saw Zaveid and Edna so far. Edna is just an illusion though.
      But Eizen mentionned her countless times.

    • a745

      Major spoilers, but since you asked:

      "Who in Berseria are the Five Lords mentioned in Zestiria?"
      - For the Five Lords, we find out later that Oscar, Teresa, Melchior and Shigure get reincarnated into one of the 5 Lords each after their deaths, with Laphicet (party Laphicet, not Velvet's brother) becoming Maotelus, heading them. This is pretty much confirmed since when the four lords speak to Laphicet at the end of the game, they have the exact same voices as these four.

      "Do any of the other seraphim from Zestiria excluding Zaveid appear or get mentioned?"
      - There's an illusion of Edna made by Melchior. Eizen also mentions her a lot, since he exchanges letters with her.

      "Who is the Lord of Calamity in Berseria?"
      - It's Velvet.

  • Gilang Ardhi

    so is there any annoying character (personality) in the game? like luke from abyss first half, karol from vesperia, traitor like alvin in xillia, kid asbel in graces, emil from symphonia? or are the characters are likeable?

    • Miry

      Maybe Laphicet at the very beginnng.

    • Simon Low

      The characters are all likeable in my opinion. I don't think there are any annoying ones.

  • Alberto Amado Muñoz

    why Jude in the cameo battle is a penguin?
    is there more charcters from tales of xillia than jude and milla?
    why jude and milla are in the world of berseria?

    • Miry

      There is always a cameo battle in Tales of games. For exemple, in Tales of Zestiria, you can fight Jade from Tales of the Abyss. In Tales of Graces f, Veigue (Tales of Rebirth) is a boss in the colosseum, etc...

      There is only Jude and Milla in Berseria.

    • Simon Low

      Cameo battle is just for fan service

  • landofhonor

    Hello! Is there any video already showing Zaveid's lover? What's normins role in this game?
    Also, regarding Lailah.... I thought she became a seraphim since she was a former Shepherd^^'' because a certain flashback in ToZ -> http://i.imgbox.com/7IFV8Au2.jpg , video here: https://youtu.be/C7KgwKbsZbw, in this video "she" (because, you know, her hair are quite easy to recognize) was dressed like the former shepherds which became seraphims and they're guarding the shrines of trials... Have I been fooling myself all this time? lol
    By the way, thank you very much for all the interesting infos & videos you're posting 🙂 (and sorry for my poor English but it isn't my first language)

  • Gilang Ardhi

    is there any good fighting cutscene/fighting cutscene? like, kos mos vs telos in xenosaga 3?

    • Erhans Layton

      The final battle between the team and Artorius + Kanonushi is pretty cool though

  • Gab the Greddy

    so. if the velvet brother is a malak innominat, who is the party laphi?

    • Lulu8675

      Some are saying that the party Laphi is revel to be the Malak form of Celica and Artorius’s unborn child.

      • Miry

        That's true.

    • Simon Low

      But basically, party laphicet is another individual that velvet meet in her journeys.

  • Autre

    Sooo... anyone knows what happens to the 3rd mystic artes when we start new game plus? Do we need to reach the end of the final dungeon again? Oh god please no...

  • LeonSilvis

    So are there any mention of Arma Dylan in Berseria?

  • Lulu8675

    I'm kinda curious as to why Jude appear as a pengfish (what ever it's call)? As adorable as it is, it also sparks my curiosity as to the story behind it.

  • IS | 桂木

    Has anyone done one of the Rokurou centric end game sidequests where you fight a Dragonewt? Does Rokurou explicitly state it was his mother? If so, that has some interesting implications

    • Erhans Layton

      Finished it, and yes it was his mother

      • IS | 桂木

        So Rokurou is half-malakim, then?

        • Pakuchee

          Finished that part and from what I understand is that she was originally human killed by Shigure first when he succeeds her as new head of Rangetsu clan, then she turned into malakim(with her former life memory retained) then turned Dragonewt.

          • IS | 桂木

            Okay, that makes a lot more sense. Thanks

        • Erhans Layton

          No, her mother died as a human ==> being reborn as a malak (just like Velvet's sister) ==> then she is half turned into dragon due to the impurity (kegare), but she still manages to remember who she was due to her strong affection to her sons.
