The Tales of VS. Official Sitehas just been updated with character videos of Stan/Stahn Aileron and Mighty Kongman/Bruiser Khang.
In the videos, Stan performs his ????? (Kouou Tenshouyoku) while Kongman performs his ???????? (Tres Bien Hip). Click the thumbnails above to view them in our YouTube channel, again available in HQ. Their character arts from the site have also been uploaded to the gallery.
I am currently looking through what LaZy updated yesterday about (the info from Dengeki). In the meantime, I have replaced all the Dengeki screenshots with better ones that have no watermark. The Tales of Vesperia PS3 screenshots have been replaced with HD ones, and we have new high quality character arts:
Please check back on this post for new info on the characters. I'm just translating them right now. Oh yeah, and I'm back now ^_^.
EDIT: Here are the new character info. Also, seeing as how the ToP and ToS localizations translated "??????" (ooinaru minori) as the "Great Seed", it would be better to refer to the Great Harvest as Great Seed from now on (though they still mean the same in the Japanese sense).
VA: Aya Hisakawa
"Oh, I'm no one's ally."
A female freelance warrior from the Free City Union (Dyne). She is currently just going along with her employer's ideas, but it seems like she has no other goals in mind. She is usually flying around in Dailantia with her partner, Baul.

"It's wrong to keep on doing this!"
A young boy who resides in the Free City Union. Every night, he sees a mysterious dream, and suddenly, he has awoken to his powers to fight.

"Bastards like you... I completely find annoying!"
