New Localized Info And 70+ Screenshots on Tales of Berseria's Magilou, Bienfu and the Break Soul System

Bandai Namco Entertainment has just released over 70+ screenshots and a bit of localized information on Tales of Berseria's recently announced characters Magilou and Bienfu, along with details on the new Break Soul System in battles.

Magilou

 


"I suppose you'll never understand. People can be so miserable. Not that it matters, really."
Age: Unknown
Gender: Female
Weapon: Guardian
Race: Human

Bienfu

 


"Bieeen! The bad times have returned!"
Age: 10
Gender: Unknown
Race: Malak

Break Soul System

 


The Break Soul system is specific to each character and allows the player to exceed the performable number of Artes in a combo. When done correctly, a special effect may occur.


Among the Break Souls, there's Velvet's "Consuming Claw," an attack-dedicated ability which enables her to eat an enemy's ability through her mutated left hand.


There's also Magilou's "Spell Absorber," an anti-magic dedicated ability which allows the player to cancel the enemy's action and absorb their mana.


Rokurou's is "Retribution" that, when mastered, can perform a powerful combo.


Laphicet's "Divide Pain" spans the entire field and increases the party's survival rate.

Basics: Change Controlled Character

You can switch the character you're controlling by pressing the L1 button + the left/right directional button. This can also be done through the battle menu (to open with the touch pad) by pushing the L2/R2 button.
