In a recent official broadcast, the Tales of Arise development team from Bandai Namco presented an introductory and official RPG theme. It features Alfen, Shionne, and other members of the party, as well as important NPCs, including the mysterious swordsman.
Tales of Arise is the story of Dana and Rena, two worlds at odds over the latter’s enslavement of the former. Alfen is originally from Dana but has no memories (and for some reason does not feel pain). He soon meets Shionne, a native of Rena, who hurts anyone who touches her and can use the astral arts. The two begin their journey together, fighting injustice as well as getting to know each other.
Tales of Arise aims to revamp the series’ formula by adding elements like Counter Edge and Boost Strike to bring battles to life.
The game will release on September 10th for Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, and PC
