Tales of Berseria is set in the sacred kingdom of Midgand, which consists of several large lands and numerous archipelagos. Inhabitants of Midgand work to advance the region’s sailing and ship technology. The region is also said to suffer from extreme climate variations between its Northern and Southern areas, ranging from severe winters to everlasting summers.

 

Velvet, the game’s heroine, wakes up after a certain incident takes place three years prior to the start of the game, and her existence shocks the world for some unmentioned reason. While Velvet is designed by Mutsumi Inomata, Kosuke Fujishima will also return as a character designer.
