Mikako Komatsu to Play Tales of Zestiria's Rosé
posted on by Egan Loo
This year's 42nd issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Saturday that Mikako Komatsu will voice the character Rosé (Roze). Franchise regular Kousuke Fujishima designed this female character who joins Sorey and the others. Cheerful and lively, she sets the mood of the group.
The game is classified as an "RPG where passion lights up the world," and the official tagline for the game is "Tradition will one day become 'hope.'" Bandai Namco Games will release the game on January 22, 2015.
Namco Bandai Studio's Daigo Okumura designed the character Alisha, while Kousuke Fujishima designed Sorey. Mutsumi Inomata is also returning to contribute character designs along with Minoru Iwamoto. The anime studio ufotable is once again contributing animation for cut scenes and the opening for the game under studio founder and producer Hikaru Kondo. Motoi Sakuraba and Go Shiina are composing the soundtrack, and Superfly is performing the game's theme song. An anime special inspired by the game is set to premiere before the game is released.
The full battle system, titled "Fusonic Chain-LMBS" (with LMBS standing for "Linear Motion Battle System), renews the franchise's real-time battle system, and adds a gauge that lets characters freely battle as long as there is stock in it. By using the gauge, effects such as healing and blowing away the enemy will be usable. The game will also include a new battle feature called "Kamui" that allows for a human and a heavenly being to fuse. In the game, Sorey will be able to fuse with Heavenly Beings such as Lailah, changing his form and allowing him to use Lailah's attributes to attack.
