The official Tales of Berseria Japanese website has been updated with a few new screenshots plus some info on Velvet and the world the game will take place in.
The info is basically a more detailed version of the info from Famitsu we posted a few days ago.
Velvet (spelling official, though I guess there was no doubt about that)
Height: 170 cms ( roughly 5'7" )
Voice Actor: Rina Satou
Character Design: Mutsumi Inomata
Velvet used to be a no-frills and very frank girl who held much love for her family, but she completely changed because of an incident that happened 3 years ago. It's as if her ability to smile has completely disappeared, and in exchange, cold emotions of anger and hatred bore fruit.
This woman who has shut out her kindness and has let her cold fury burn will soon become an existence big enough to shake this world.
Tales of Berseria will mainly take place in the Midgand Sacred Kingdom, a powerful country that rules over this world's archipelago of a continent. There are countless of islands around, and Midgand's rule crosses even the seas. Areas of land and islands in the game are divided into "territories."
Though considered to be a part of the same kingdom, there are big climate and temperature differences between the northern and southern areas. These differences influence culture, architecture and the people's livelihood. In the recent years, the cold climate has been spreading around the world, most especially at the northern areas.
Midgand is well-versed in the art of making ships and sailing that trade is actively done throughout different places. Weather changes and currents can be harsh, so these trade ships follow specific routes to travel safely, but these safety routes are often targeted by pirates...
Areas in the game range from snowy, cold places, an island of everlasting summer, autumn colors and places where the sun sets. They aim to further diversify areas for a satisfying adventure for players.
