posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Bandai Namco Entertainment began streaming the fifth promotional video for the Tales of Berseria role-playing game on Saturday. Bandai Namco Entertainment had originally revealed the video on Saturday during the "Tales of Festival 2016" event. The video previews Velvet's past, and introduces the character Artorius Collbrande — who is the object of Velvet's revenge.
Kenyuu Horiuchi is voicing Artorius in the game. Ah My Goddess manga creator Kousuke Fujishima designed the character. Artorius and Velvet used to consider each other family, but a certain incident that Artorius caused three years ago made Velvet leave his side, and he is now the target of her revenge.
The event on Saturday also revealed another new character named Seres, voiced by Satomi Arai. Seres (who can be seen in the above video at 1:47) is under Artorius' command, but three years ago she regained her emotions in a certain incident, and she began to question his actions. Seres visits Velvet when Velvet is imprisoned on Prison Island.
The YouTube channel for Shueisha's V Jump magazine also posted a 37-minute commentated gameplay video from the game on Tuesday.
The "Tales of Festival 2016" event also revealed that the game's soundtrack will go on sale on September 28.
The game's main cast includes:
Rina Satou as Velvet Crowe

Daisuke Kishio as Rokuro Rangetsu

Bandai Namco Entertainment will ship the game for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan on August 18, and the company will release the game for PlayStation 4 and PC in North America and Europe in early 2017.
