Jump this week reveals a new character set to appear in Tales of Zestiria.
Dezel, voiced by Daisuke Ono and designed by Daigo Okumura, is 185cm tall and wields a Pendulum. He is a Family of Heaven member of the wind attribute, and a man who works in the shadows of human society in order to track down and get revenge on the Hyouma who took a friend.
In battle, he moves in a calculated manner by covering the surrounding area with his Pendulum. He can perform Heaven Echo Artes from afar both vertically and laterally.
Dezel’s quote reads: “I’ll say this much: you’d better stay out of my way. I don’t care if you’re a doshi, I won’t tolerate your interference.”
Three new battle system elements are also introduced. First, there’s the self-explanatory “Around Step.” Then there’s the “Blast Gauge,” which when used, players can recover health and push away enemies. Finally, there’s the “Spirits Chain,” which lets players freely combine attacks while draining the gauge.
A new dungeon, the Damunonia Art Museum, is also shown.
Tales of Zestiria is in development for PlayStation 3.
