Edna | Tales of Zestiria

Edna from Tales of Zestiria

Edna was first revealed in a recent issue of Shonen Jump as the newest character from Tales of Zestiria, but now Famitsu has released new screens and new information on this very interesting character.

Edna and Her Parasol | Tales of Zestiria

Edna seems to be keeping her distance.

Edna belongs to the Family of Heaven and can use earth-attribute Heaven Echo Artes. She is a very introverted character partly because she has spent most of her life alone. The only person she shows any emotion to is her brother, who is her only family.

The battle system in Tales of Zestiria will stick close to the other titles using a “Linear Motion Battle System.” Namco Bandai has not released all the details on the new battle mechanics, but have shed some light on the fighting styles of Slay and Alicia.

Slay in Battle | Tales of Zestiria Slay in Battle | Tales of Zestiria

Slay uses a ceremonial sword he found in the ruins. His fighting style is close to other Tales series sword users like Millia Maxwell of Tales of Xillia and Asbel Lhant of Tales of Graces. He strikes fast and uses swift movements to win battles.

Alicia in Battle | Tales of Zestiria Alicia in Battle | Tales of Zestiria

Alicia wields a long spear and is able to attack enemies in front of her as well as enemies around her. She has low defense, but makes up for it with a high evasion rate during battles.

Namco Bandai has always been good at giving each character in the Tales series a unique role in battle so that players of any play-style will find a character that fits their preferences. This new edition to the series looks to be no different.

    and i will still stick with the main protagonist no matter what they use.

      haha, I’m the same way! although i did change characters for the sake of a platinum trophy in xillia.

    • Keichi Morisato

      well yeah… but for simply going through the story, and or first play through, i stick with the main protagonist.

    • azariosays

      defiantly!

    Sweet. Glad to hear they’re sticking to the LMBS. Big fan of Vesperia and Xillia. Though with this and GGXrd coming out soon I need to grab my PS3 fight stick.

      i’ve never played any rpg games with a fight stick, does it make it easier or more fun?
