Bandai Namco recently revealed details on two new characters Rokuro and Eleanor for their upcoming RPG Tales of Berseria, and this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine gives us a closer look at the two. [Thanks, Ruliweb via Game Jouhou.]
As previously reported, Rokuro is a happy-go-lucky young swordsman, who is actually a Daemon but still maintains reason. He follows Velvet due to a debt he owes her after a certain incident. He greatly values the great sword on his back, which he calls “the great sword of life,” but he usually fights using dual blades.
Eleanor is part of the anti demon organization called the “Holy House” (or “Seiryo” in Japanese.) She has a kind personality to most people, but shows a cold-hearted side to those that bare teeth towards the Holy House.
Her battle-type is listed as “First Anti-Demon Warrior”. Basically, Anti-Demon Warriors (or “Taimashi” in Japanese,) use Malak for Artes to protect people from Daemons. Those who’ve suffered from Daemonblight look up to them as heroes. Velvet, who is a Daemon, is considered an enemy to Eleanor, the Taimashi. The two will go against each other in battle on numerous occasions.
Tales of Berseria will release in 2016 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC.
