Bandai Namco has provided fans with another extended look at Tales of Berseria, this time zooming in on the game’s demon-heavy backstory in a new trailer titled “The Calamity and The Blade”:
A mysterious disease known as Daemonblight is devouring the kingdom, it infects humans, plants, and animals, turning many of them into violent creatures. Take on the role of Velvet Crowe, a woman who some years ago lived a normal life in her village but is now infected with Daemonblight. She narrowly escapes death and is instead imprisoned for three years. Take part in her tale of vengeance!
