Bandai Namco has announced two new characters who will join the roster of Tales of Berseria, Shigure Rangetsu and Melchior. The two characters are both legates from the Abbey. Although linked to the Abbey, Shigure is a free spirit who has built credibility through combat, while "Melchior is an elder who knows the ancient legends as well as alchemy and he is willing to take unpleasant tasks".
In addition, the studio revealed new details about Mystic Artes, a powerful attack for Rokurou, Magilou and Eizem, next to some new features on the special objectives in the adventure, character customisation, and the system of exploration. In addition to this, Namco Bandai has also announced the return of the cooking system, with which players can cook and use their skills to increase their cooking level. Finally, the game will also present some new mini-games, which, however, the studio didn't offer further details.
