Since announcing the postponement to 2021, Tales of Arise, whose mission is to celebrate the quarter century of a series now well-established in the J-RPG’s bushy landscape, has promised mountains and wonders for this spring. As a symbol of renewal and keeping promises, the next game from Bandai Namco is finally taking notice and also preparing to attack the new generation of consoles.

After some hesitation, it is now official: Tales of Arise will be released on September 10th on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, but also (surprisingly) on PS5 and Xbox Series.
Anger against the system
If this new appearance makes it possible to find the duo of protagonists already present, it is also possible to define their motivations more precisely, while the inhabitants of the Dhana plant have been subjected to regular slavery for three centuries, which inevitably leads to a slavery uprising . If we already know Alphen’s face, today we will discover some unfortunate companions who will follow him in his quest for freedom before Shionne comes to complicate the equation.
the military hand
The editor today insists on the graphic style of this episode Arise, which in the jargon of communicators is qualified by “Atmospheric color card”, a note that reinforces the impression of “handmade” while maintaining the very Japanese style of the series. God Eater producer Yosuke Tomizawa raves about his topic:
We want Tales of Arise to be an important new step for the license. The game takes a new artistic direction and uses the Unreal Engine and our new “Atmospheric Shader” to improve the graphics quality and give the players the impression of being in a real picture. With a more mature story touching more fundamental themes than the previous games, we hope players will be fully immersed in the journey of Alphen and Shionne.
It must be recognized that the revolutionary and likely manipulative dimension indicated in this new trailer contrasts with the relative ease that characterized certain opus of a saga that began in 1995.
The appointment has now been made Bandai Namco didn’t hesitate to reveal collector’s editions and other bonuses for the deluxe version:
- Pack d’items Premium, with a gold supplement, ingredients and boosts for your team
- Pack de Costumes Premium, with 8 outfits and 6 accessories
- Premium travel packageIt offers better cooking and handicraft capacities as well as discounts in various shops
We must therefore wait until the end of summer for the spirits to warm up and lead the revolution: Tales of Arise will officially be released on September 10th for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox series. To the weapons!
