The official Tales of Blog has another update for Tales of Berseria, and we got ourselves a bunch of screenshots including more on Oscar, Teresa, a lizard Daemon named Dyle, and Mystic Artes.
You may have spotted these two in past trailers: Half siblings Oscar Dragonia and Teresa Linares. They are exorcists from Abbey (learn more about Abbey here) that our main cast of characters will cross paths with through the story. Oscar and Teresa are not playable characters, but they’ll still be important.
Oscar is a strong praetor exorcist who fights against Velvet as she tries to flee from Titania, the prison island.
Teresa is the praetor exorcist who governs Hellawes, the north town in Midgand Holy Empire. She calls Laphicet “Number Two” and has tethered him to use his Malak artes.
Velvet will also come across a lizard daemon named Dyle as the story kicks off. He’s going to be really helpful as she tried to break out from the prison island Titania. We’ll have more info on his character in an upcoming article.
Mystic Arte are back in Tales of Berseria! Mystic Arte are strong special attacks to be executed by consuming Blast Gauge (introduced in a previous article). A player can deal high damage to an enemy which play out with a cool animation to show off this powerful Mystic Arte!
Vevet’s Mystic Arte
A player can strengthen a character to activate new and hidden skills as the game progresses.
There are lots of different effects that skills can have on a character and two key ways to activate them; the first way is to activate equipment skills and the second is to activate skills that belong to titles. We’ll have much more to say about this in an upcoming, in-depth article.
And that’s it for the recap! Look forward to lots of new details in articles over the coming weeks, and let us know what you’re most looking forward to learning more about!
