Tales of Zestiria the X Episode 5 and 6 Will Cross Over With Tales of Berseria

The journeys of the Shepherd go beyond Zestiria.

According to the information released for the upcoming Tales of Zestiria the X second premiere screening, episodes 5 and 6 of Tales of Zestiria the X will have bits of Tales of Berseria.

When we say episode 5 and 6, we mean the ones numbered as "Episode #05 and #06." Technically, it will be the 6th and 7th episodes to be aired if you count the Episode #00 prologue.

In the information released for the second pre-screening event, it is mentioned that Tales of Berseria will somehow cross over with these two upcoming episodes.

We've already seen Velvet herself, the protagonist of Tales of Berseria, appear in Tales of Zestiria the X's opening theme. We'll finally find out how exactly she's tied to the story by these episodes.

Episode #05 and #06 of Tales of Zestiria the X will be shown at the upcoming second premiere screening this August 5, 2016 in select theaters in Japan. There will also be a cast and staff talk show, plus an information corner for the Tales of Berseria game. This latter part will be done at Cinema Mediage in Odaiba , and will also be shown as a live viewing in the other cinemas. Participating cinemas include TOHO Cinemas Umeda, TOHO Cinemas Nagoya Bay City, TOHO Cinemas Tenjin, T Joy Riverwalk Kitakyushu and ufotable Cinema. Tickets will be 2,500 Yen if you'll be at the Cinema Mediage one and it will be 2,000 Yen for all the other cinemas.

Included in the cast show are the voice actors of Velvet, Laphicet, Rokurou and Magilou along with the Director and the Producer of the Tales of Zestiria X anime. It will be an event that will make Tales of Zestiria the X and Tales of Berseria "cross" each other.

If we're following the actual release of the episodes in public, Episode #05 and #06 will be shown on August 7th and August 14th, which will be in good timing with the release of Tales of Berseria itself on August 18, 2016 in Japan.

    I don't know what is it about Berseria, but it's kinda got me hyped. It's literally the only reason I'm watching this.

    Nice review
    In the other reviews it was mentioned that the sub is less accurate with the game's terms
    If it still like that in all steamers I would recommend going for the fansub, fansub groups usually do better job than the official things
    And known fansub group named Commie pick this show, Commie known for keeping the same terms of the games from their previous works (call it lazy or steady but at least they keep it true to the official terms we got with the eng ver of the game)
    Unless they won't drop it midway I can't see any reason to not stick with them over other streamers
