In a Funimation email I got (web version), it was talking about the Tales of Zestiria The X anime. In it, it says

It's time to switch gears and meet a new heroine in our tale and of the upcoming game Tales of Berseria. Velvet Crowe has been imprisoned on a remote island for three years but the time for her breakout has come. With revenge on her mind and demonic powers at her call, will she get what she wants or will her own vengeance create a dangerous bout of malevolence?

What I picked up on was the mention of another Tales of game. Generally from my understanding, most Tales of games are set in/on separate worlds and unless they share the same main title (e.g. Tales of Symphonia/Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World or Tales of Xilla 1/2) are generally independent of one another.

However, as the quote mentions, Velvet Crowe is from Tales of Berseria. Below is a screenshot from the Tales of Zestiria The X that was in the Funimation email.

And below are the cover shot and screenshot from Tales of Berseria showing Velvet.

While she appears to be wearing something different between Tales of Zestiria The X and Tales of Berseria, her face, hair, and arm still look the same.

So I am wondering, is there a connection between Tales of Zestiria and Tales of Berseria? Is the Tales of Zestiria The X anime serving as a bridge between the two?

  • Tales of Berseria takes Place 1.000 years before Tales of Zestiria. & an Anime is not complete without Time Travel shenanigans Feb 21 '17 at 8:13

Tales of Berseria took places thousand of years before Zestiria during the time where human could still see Seraph (which during the time are called Malaks who descended from the heaven in droves after some sort of ritual during the Scarlet night).

The anime most likely try to connect the two by showing the origins of Hellions (Daemons as they called it during Berseria) and how Malaks develop emotion to become Seraphs of the Zestiria timeline. and as the episode 5 title suggest the Beginning of the Calamity.
