New Tales of Zestiria Scans - Kamui Transformations, New Key Characters and Status Art Illustrations

The latest issue of Tales of Zestiria features Sorey's Kamui mode transformations, new key characters and status art illustrations.

Pressing L1 activates Kamui mode with Sorey's partner. Note that Sorey's Kamui mode form actually has the same look, just with different colors and attack features.

For Mikleo's, Sorey uses a bow and arrow in Kamui mode, which can have long ranges both horizontally and diagonally. When you chain 3 consecutive attacks, the bow and arrow transforms into a massive, more powerful one.

Edna's allows the use of fist power as well as the ability to summon rock pillars from the earth. Chaining 3 consecutive attacks turns the fists into gigantic ones.

Dezel's uses swords that spin around like a tornado. When chaining 3 consecutive attacks, the swords take the form of giant wings.

Also in the scan mentioned are the Normin creatures, which is what the small doll Edna has is based on. Normin are creatures of the Divine found in various places, and meeting them grants special abilities. The Normin apparently have a Kansai dialect.

We also have two new characters, one mentioned already in Jump. From the look of things, these guys seem to be more like key characters or NPCs, but we're still not sure at the moment.

"I humbly ask of you, Priest Sorey. Can you find out the truth about the Caridnal?"
- The hot-blooded leader of the knights of the Lowlance Empire. His complete loyalty to the Empire and dedication to the people has earned him everyone's respect, including the deep trust of those under his ranks. His battle prowess crosses that of a normal human, meaning that he is able to react to even the unseen attacks of the Divine.

Lucas (ruukasu, romanization not yet official)
Voiced by: Takanori Hoshino
- A mercenary whose name is known even between the two countries' generals. The men under his leadership are said to compare even to that of an army. At present, he is under the employment of the Highland Kingdom.

We also have what seem to be the status art illustrations of the characters by ufotable.

Thanks to @Kurushii for the scans!
