Namco Bandai shares new details for Tales of Berseria


Also, new character overviews

Tales of Berseria is still a ways off (it doesn't even have a release date in Japan yet, though a localization has been confirmed), but that hasn't stopped Namco Bandai from sharing some new information. Apparently the theme will be "emotion and reason," as the story centralizes around Velvet, who comes across people who only act on reason, abandoning the concept of emotion. It'll also center around a disease called "Goma," which morphs humans into monsters -- strangely, Velvet's left hand can transform into an inhuman appendage, which will probably work into the Goma concept at some point.

It will debut with the Linear Motion Battle System (LMBS), which features free-running, and Artes, which are abilities mapped to each face button -- they've altered this from past setups, so the player can use the left stick entirely for movement, and two additional face buttons for Artes (sounds good).
