Tales Of Berseria Gets A Release Date And An Amazing Collector's Edition

Tales fans, rejoice! A Tales of Berseria release date for North America has finally been unveiled.

Tales of Berseria launches on January 24 for PlayStation 4. The game features the first Tales female protagonist to receive top billing. Previously, Tales of Xillia's Milla was the first female character to be a main protagonist, but she shared that role with Jude. In Berseria, Velvet is the only lead character, and she takes us on her quest for revenge after she experiences a family tragedy. For more on what to expect, you can check out our recent preview from TGS.

In addition, the Tales of Berseria collector's edition was also announced. It's jam packed with goodies, such as Velvet and Laphicet figures, an 8-bit retro keychain set, a special selection music CD, trading cards, a strategy guide artbook, and a prequel novel. The collector's edition costs $149.99, and you can see it in all its glory below. Bandai Namco is only printing 10,000 copies of the collector's edition, so be sure to pre-order it as soon as possible if you want one.

Our Take
That's a pricey collector's edition, but it's packed with a ton of stuff. Plus, it does look like it will be quite rare given that Bandai Namco is only printing 10,000. I'm more excited by the fact that we can finally play Berseria in January. It's already out in Japan, and I've seen some pretty good things about it so far, especially in terms of the side quests.
