UPDATED - Tales of Berseria Gets Tales of Series DLC Costumes, Plus Dengeki Review

As well as Mieu full body suits.

POST UPDATED WITH BETTER SCANS! | The latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation features upcoming new paid DLC costumes for Tales of Berseria, featuring Tales of Series costumes.

The info comes from a sneak peek of Dengeki PlayStation's Volume 620 (full image cover here) which will officially be released tomorrow, August 10.

UPDATE: We've added the scan of the DLC. This issue of Dengeki also comes with a 16-page booklet covering Tales of Berseria. The info on the booklet just covers everything about the game so far, so we won't be putting the entire thing up. You can order the magazine via Amazon Japan, they ship overseas.

 

The scans above show the following Tales of Series character cameo costumes:

  • Velvet as Rutee Katrea (Tales of Destiny)
  • Laphicet as Richard (Tales of Graces)
  • Rokurou as Ludger Kresnik (Tales of Xillia 2)
  • Eleanor as Natalia L.K. Lanvaldear (Tales of the Abyss)
  • Magilou as Arche Klein (Tales of Phantasia)
  • Eizen as Hubert Oswell (Tales of Graces)

In addition, the scans also show Mieu suit and heads for the characters. The Normin one on the top right is of the same variety, but obtained in-game (not DLC).

Below that is new DLC for the girls, wearing  Magician's Troupe costumes.

The Tales of Series cameo costumes, the Mieu suit and the magician costumes will all be out on September 1, 2016 for 300 Yen per costume per character via the Japanese PlayStation Store.

Dengeki PlayStation has also reviewed Tales of Berseria, giving it a score of 95/95/85/95 (an average of 92.5). Similar to how Famitsu does it, Dengeki also reviews with four people, but on a scale of up to 100. Some of their comments on the game include:

  • Despite the new game elements, it really feels like a Tales game. It's packed with the usual charming story and pleasant characters that Tales is known for.
  • The tutorial aspects are tediously long. It would be a perfect score if they gave you the thing that makes moving on the field faster earlier.  (I think they mean the Geoboard)
  • Though not having Tales of Zestiria won't matter, those who have played will notice some similarities.
  • Battles give a more enjoyable feeling more than ever in the series.
  • The story will really fascinate the player.
  • Those new to the series may find the number of things to learn about playing the game a bit overwhelming.
  • Any RPG lover will undoubtedly enjoy it.
  • Clearing sub events adds tens of hours in gameplay. It's been a while since I've played a game with such density.
  • Rina Satou's voice acting skills as Velvet are really good.
  • I wish we obtained the item to move faster onto the field a little bit earlier in the game (I think they mean the Geoboard).

You can check out the full scan of the review here.

Also, we missed this, but the last issue of Weekly Jump apparently showed full body suit Normin costumes (plus Bienfu) for the characters, as well as what seems to be an arena-like area. The Normin costumes are in-game costumes, not paid DLC.

Tales of Berseria
Tales of BerseriaTales of Berseria is the latest mothership title of the Tales of Series which was first announced during Tales of Festival 2015.

    I was just gonna ask if we were gonna get Tales costumes! This is awesome. I like the choices too.

  • 8ro

    Velvet - Rutee, Magi - Arche...

    What a day to be alive

  • Simon Low

    Mieu costumes and Normin Costumes are a bit too much to handle for me.... XD

  • Kaydon JAK

    No Yuri, no Leon no further always repeating outfits I love you Bamco!

  • MT

    Oh! The Tales cameo costumes. Awesome. And no Leon and Yuri repeats either. (But for some reason I was kinda half expecting Eizen to get Jude's costume...though this is much much better. :D)

  • Crystal Power

    Velvet actually as Rutee and not Yuri or Leon? You've done well Bamco, you've done well.. :')

  • ALfromHELLSING

    Yaaaas!! Yaaaas!! All those costumes look so goooooood!!
    It's strange tho that there are 2 costumes from Graces, meaning it's going to be the same battle music theme for both? I hope not. hmm...

  • Ben Markham

    Really? no Symphonia costumes?

  • I'd like some Zesty costumes, timeline continuity be darned! =-p

  • lol@u

    Rutee got her old costume back I see :3

  • alexis gante

    I prefer Eizen as Malik, and Magi as Pascal would be awsome too

    • frubam

      I LOVE Pascal, but her costume is horribly designed(I less attribute that to the designers and more attribute that to her lack of concern for fashion sense and hygiene =01). Rita's is a similarly-designed, but better looking version of Pascal's style(but still wouldn't suit Maggie I think)

  • NanakoBackAtJunes

    This makes Velvet much more appealing to me. And dat Arche luv <3

  • Sano

    The legacy costumes look wonderful; I'll be picking quite a few of them no doubt. Also finally got around to putting in my pre-order today; it's crazy how this release date snuck up on me like this.

    New Tales releases are always a magical time. Just over a week now; really looking forward to it.

  • InfinityAge11

    Laphicet in Richard's outfit is just the best thing that has ever happened to me ;_;
