Know More About The World of Tales of Berseria

Check out some English localized info and terminologies for the upcoming Tales of Berseria!
This info is from the official Tales of blog. Note that the info here is actually pretty much the same as the info from Famitsu before, but it is great to see the localized terms for them.

Berseria's Theme: "Emotion versus Reason"

 


With a focus on Velvet, the first solo female lead protagonist who strives for her goals with strong emotion, Tales of Berseria is about her confrontation with those who forego emotion and stick to reason to bring order to the world, as well as society’s internal conflict between emotion and reason.

World Setting

 


The world has a mainland at the center, which will be called the Glenwood Continent in the far future. The main stage of the story is set in the Midgand Empire, a great nation which governs a large area stretching across the sea. This nation consists of countless islands that are divided into multiple territories.


Even in the same kingdom, there is a big difference in the temperature between Northern territory and Southern territory, and even big differences in the climate depending on the location. These varied climates have an impact on the cultures, which varies the building architecture and life styles. Recently, the climate has been cooler across the world, especially in the Northern area as it has almost been buried under the snow.


In the Midgand Empire, the shipbuilding technology and seafaring technology have really evolved. Trade between territories are being actively conducted. Trading ships use specific routes because the ocean currents and the weather change drastically, as well as the threat of pirates.

 

The Story

This is the beginning of a mythology where the true story is forgotten in the far future…

Three years ago, the world suffered periods of turbulence due to Daemonblight, the strange disease that changes humans to monsters.

Velvet and her family, living in a remote and old fashioned village in the Midgand Empire, helped one another and spent warm days together. However, the night the Scarlet Moon rose, Velvet's life was drastically turned around. She was betrayed by a person who she trusted. She not only lost her parents but also her left hand which was swallowed by a mysterious power. It transformed into a terrible hand which has the power to devour monsters.


Time goes by and three years pass. Velvet Crowe races through the kingdom. Her eyes show her fury against the savior of the world who deprived everything from her... To be continued.
