Her pose is weird. Her hips want to go right but her boobs want to go left. Is her spine a noodle?

Also, those clothes are in no way functional. Damaged cape/coat? That's cool, I guess. Bandaged arm? I'm sure she got her reasons. Getting into a fight with a paper shredder? Bad idea.

The only way to make up for this is giving her a Captain Harlock costume. For free.

The setting better make up for this.

Ahhh yes, the good old emo teenage girl who's been victim of assault. A timeless classic.

I guess I can see what they were trying to do with the whole torn clothes look, but I'm pretty sure they could've achieved the same look without that much fanservice. Actually it's kind of contradictory to me to have a look which is supposed to imply she's hardened by adventuring but at the same time has several parts of her clothes where it looks like it's completely intact and clearly looks designed.

Also this seems to happen a lot, but I do like how in the art her facial expression says a lot about the type of character she'll probably be...but all that personality is nowhere to be seen on the actual 3D model.

It seems like the Tales of Writers were fresh out of good female JRPG lead personalities (assuming they ever one to begin with), so they went with the first closest approximation they could find, FFXIII's Lightning.

Anyways, rather than repeat what I said about all this back in the Tales of Megathread, I'll just paraphrase these little nuggets of wisdom here....

It'll even have a full on female protagonist this time too
Code: [Select]
(for about an hour before leaving to get replaced by generic anime swordsman #84073 :V ).
Edit: Bonus points for making said female MC look like she's just coming back from a visit to the Senran Kagura-verse that went south for her.




Quote
Her quote reads "I will not give up. No matter how many times they try, I'll devour them."

Velvet is apparently a female pirate, and themes of pirates and ships were shown during the short scenery video they played at the event.

Oh. So she's apparently a fan of dining on the blood of living Calamari (of the Kraken and Roper varieties). ♪Fifteen scraps of clothing on an undead woman's chest. Yo ho ho and a bottle of Tentacle Grape.♪ :V


I have no idea how I missed that this thread was here.

Well like Aeolus mentioned I think Velvet's outfit just looks...weird. Of course maybe that's because all I'm seeing are some low-quality pictures taken from god knows how far away.

TBF, there's not much to look at.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

OH MY GOSH TOMARA noodle spine is a serious condition affecting millions of animes and they are very sensitive about their condition how could you be so cruel :((((

... I wonder if Orfellia and Alestia might be DLC packs or something. They sound like they could be character or continent names. That's be swell of them.

(... I should replay Eternia for that matter. I remember liking it and the characters not having that dingus-y quality that a lot of Tales characters have. Probably because a lot of the really dingusy moments were relegated to the skits that weren't in the US version. Like, normal game dialogue, they're totally reasonable and sane young adults, and then I was watching this /subbed skit/ video on youtube and it's just everyone jumping around and shouting about underwear.

Although I'm of the mindset that less-is-more can be a good approach to dialogue in general. I think my problem with tales skits in particular is that they're really separate from what you're doing in the game. So unlike FFIX's or SO2's people be off doin they thang events, it was just like, TEXT HAPPENING OUT OF NOWHERE).

Noodle spine made me laugh.

A wild Berseria trailer approaches.

Basically moving screenshots.

Meh. I was more interested in posting a clip of Jude's Sister's VAing to get a sense of what kind of characterization to expect. The results forecast a 60% chance of lifeless butt on a stick.


Now with that said: http://gematsu.com/2015/06/tales-berseria-trademarked-europe

Have an EU trademark.

Her 'backstory' is apparently she was wonderfully cheerful till "the accident" happened.  Hopefully Tales magic wields itself to make her more fun loving as the game goes on; too many starring females got this "ice princess" thing going on.

Trademark isn't terribly surprising given the renewed support for the series (which is totally great); shame it wasn't around during the sort-of "golden age" of the series.
