Tales of Berseria, surprisingly, will feature a female main protagonist. The character's name is Velvet ( ?????, berubetto) and will be voiced by Rina Satou. Ms. Satou also made an appearance at the event and expressed that she actually auditioned for the role. Her quote reads "I will not give up. No matter how much I have to, I'll devour them."
The main character designer for Velvet is Mutsumi Inomata. Velvet is apparently a female pirate, and themes of pirates and ships were shown during the short scenery video they played at the event.
No background information on Velvet or the game was given, as they said it is not yet time to give out said info. ufotable will be in charge of the animated cutscenes.
A placeholder website is available at http://talesofberseria.tales-ch.jp. The website also mentions Kosuke Fujishima as a main character designer.
No announcement for any localization so far. We'll keep you posted if any pictures arise.
