If it feels like it has been like a really long time since we last heard about Tales of Arise, that is because it has been a quiet year. Tales of Arise was announced at Tokyo Game Show 2019 and it looked amazing.
Tales of Arise follows two new heroes, who seem bound to work together despite coming from opposing worlds. It is all very dramatic with massive fire attacks and large enemies.
The RPG was originally aiming for a 2020 release, which would have put it on track to release during the 25th anniversary of the Tales franchise. However, the coronavirus pandemic caused disruptions and ruined those plans.
Last year, producer Yusuke Tomizawa said the following: “The goal for Tales of Arise is to provide a familiar but innovative gameplay experience to fans of the series, while pushing the technical envelope to deliver a high level of graphical quality to impress both long-time players and those who have never played a Tales Of game.”
The trailer promises further news in Spring 2021.
