Tales of Berseria Manga Announced, Plus an Illustrations Book Out on September

Art by Nobu Aonagi

The latest scans from Jump Magazine feature Tales of Berseria's Artorius and Seres, along with the return of one of the Tales of Series's popular minigames.

Artorius Collbrande and Seres were two characters introduced during Tales of Festival 2016. More info on them have been revealed, along with the return of the waiter/waitress minigame!

Artorius Collbrande

I swear to you all that I shall put an end to all the pain in this world!
VA: Kenyu Horiuchi
Designed by: Kosuke Fujishima

  • A man who has gained tremendous support as the "Savior." He possesses a strong sense of reason.

Seres

...First, I must test you, whether or not it will be worth my while to teach you."
VA: Satomi Arai

  • Seres is a Malak that can control the power of fire. Despite being under Artorius's command, she serves as a sort of guide at times to Velvet during her journey and helps her escape her prison.

The arrows pointing to the three characters just show what type of relationship the three have. Seres is under Artorius' employment, but she feels estranged of him recently (during TalesFes, they said that she questions Artorius's actions the past three years). Artorius is someone Velvet will never forgive, while Seres helps Velvet escape (her prison).

And of course, the whole waiter/waitress minigame is back! We haven't seen this since... Vesperia, I believe? It certainly is a welcome addition.
