Tales of Berseria released in Japan earlier this year, but North American players will be able to get their hands on it early next year. Bandai Namco announced in a press release that the next entry in its JRPG series is coming January 24, 2017 for PS4 and PC.

Additionally, Bandai Namco revealed the $150 Collector's edition, which comes with a bunch of items including a steelbook case, chibi character figures, an 8-bit keychain set, and a CD of specially selected music. You'll also get a set of trading cards, a strategy guide, and a hardcover prequel novel titled, "A Witch's Tale: A World Full of Daemons." It's available for preorder now and can be seen in the gallery below.

The latest game in the Tales series features a system called Switch Blast, which has you designating a specific character to be the backup for another. This allows players to switch in a character that can continue fighting, which can be a big help if the character they're backing up can't perform any more actions.
