Bandai Namco recently introduced a new character for Tales of Berseria by the name Eizen, and the latest Japanese magazine reports show that it’s likely Edna’s brother from Tales of Zestiria. [Thanks, Game Jouhou.]
[Editor’s Note: We previously reported the name “Aizen” as it reads that way in Japanese as アイゼン, kind of like Mr. “Just As Planned” from Bleach, but the recent magazine scan shows its Romanization as “Eizen,” so we’ll go with that. It’s also worth noting that Eizen from Zestiria was “Aizen” in the Japanese version.]
As shown above, Eizen (CV: Toshiyuki Morikawa) has his age listed at 1,000-years-old (with the appearance of a 30-year-old). He’s also a martial arts-type fighter that uses his bracelet as his weapon.
Again, there’s been some talk about how his appearance and name suggests that he could be the older brother of Edna from Tales of Zestiria. The newest image further suggests that it’s the case, as Eizen is shown wearing the same boots as Edna.
Tales of Berseria will release in Japan on August 18, 2016 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. You can check out its latest in our earlier report.
