The never-ending Tales series is back next month with Tales of Berseria, an epic journey of self discovery for Velvet. She's the first chief protagonist from the long-running franchise to be female, to the best of my knowledge, and she's harboring extreme hatred due to events which took place prior to the game. It's textbook JRPG stuff, no doubt offering up more than 100 hours of gameplay as players explore the many islands of Midgand. Here's the full system requirements for Tales of Berseria so you can make sure you're ready for its January 26th launch.  

Tales of Berseria Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit 
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 3.0 GHz or AMD Phenom II X2 550 3.1 GHz
  • RAM: 2 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 512 MB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX or AMD Radeon HD 4850
  • DX: DirectX 9.0
  • HDD: 15 GB Installation Size

Tales of Berseria Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-750 2.66 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4 GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 or AMD Radeon HD 7870

Apart from a few outliers like Final Fantasy XV, the majority of JRPG's are stuck in a bit of time warp with visuals that wouldn't look out of place on a PS3. That's because the vast majority of Japanese gamers are still waiting to upgrade to the PlayStation 4. What you end up with are games such as Tales of Berseria which are still made with Sony's decade old console in mind. 

To that end Tales of Berseria isn't too demanding at call, ensuring this is one JRPG which will run on a wide variety of systems. Compared to the last outing, Tales of Zestiria, these are only very marginally more demanding. The biggest change is Tales of Berseria can now take advantage of 64-bit operating systems.

As for the graphics hardware, just about any graphics card from the last decade is going to be able to run Tales of Berseria. For a stable frame rate and running at a higher resolution then any DX11 capable GPU upwards should be fine. That's anything around a GeForce GTX 500 series or Radeon HD 6000 series.

CPU requirements for Tales of Berseria is similarly low-end. Considering the slow movement of processor upgrades in the last few years I doubt many people are going to struggle to hit the recommended CPU requirements.
