Wow. I just finished this game. Man. THis game. I was a big fan of Zestiria despite its short comings, and I loved the cast there. But playing this game blew me away, Velvet is amazing!! The voice actor portraying her aggression did a fantastic job, her shrieks and cries were intense!
This game also made Tales of Zestiria better with all the little connections and backstories too.
Sp. Damn. Awesome.
Basically my thoughts as well, just finished the game aswell and loved it. Liked Zestiria but wasn't fan of ending and the battle gimmick they had for that game. But Beseria seems to have fixed both of those short comings.
Also I love Rokurou probably my favorite tales character in along time, and don't understand the Magliou hate lol i found her enjoyable. And Velvet was great i really felt for her and her voice actor was amazing. This really gave me hope for the next tales of game. Also Eizen is awesome
Wish they kept the Colosseum battles though, and the after battle skits have been lacking as of late. But the Skits are alot better.
