Tales of Berseria Archive

  • I have a confession, guys: I have never played a Tales of game. I love the designs, I own quite a few figures from the franchise, and I’m a huge fan of JRPGs so… what gives? Who knows, but I recently purchased Tales of Berseria and I’m excited to dive in. Once I finish some other games in my massive, frightening backlog. Seriously, it’s like 1,000+ hours of games in a scary tower. Timed perfectly with my purchase is Alter’s announcement that Eizen will be joining their Altair line. It’s always surprising to see a male character given figures before a female one, but that seems to be Alter’s MO with this series. It’s really refreshing, even though I do hope they make a Velvet (and┬áMagilou please) down the line. [via Alter’s Blog]

  • We have seen two of Kotobukiya’s most exciting Wonder Festival announcements (new Pokemon and Cowboy Bebop), but I don’t think anything could prepare me for the exciting boy-figure-flood that was about to happen. Not only did they have Spike on display and their sculpted Atem, but we’re getting a brand new Lelouch from Code Black!! Thank you figure Jesus. We are blessed this day. And that’s not all (obviously)! So much new stuff, like an adorable Madoka, High School Fleet figures, Type-Moon’s Heroine X, a bunny-tastic Airi Totoki, Sebastian Cu-Poche, and a sculpted Velvet Crowe. We also have a few announcements! They’ll be doing another Tony Taka butterfly sister (who looks suspiciously like Miku), Vira from Granblue Fantasy, and RyuuZU from Clockwork Planet.

  • We’ve seen Kotobukiya’s amazing Spike announcement and their new Bishoujos already. And apparently they’re in a retro mood, because we have a lot of throwbacks here. Motoko from Ghost in the Shell, Sakura from Sakura Wars (YASS), the art for Pokemon Trainer Red, and a Cu-Poche of Rei (which means… Asuka is right behind)! Then there’s, you know, some modern stuff. Touken Ranbu, Tales of Berseria, IDOLM@STER: Million Live, Granblue Fantasy, 7th Dragon, and more. Check them all out below! [UPDATE] Added a few new figures to the gallery!
