Tales Of Arise Is Coming This Year And Getting The Next Gen Treatment Too

Following an announcement almost two years ago, it’s been pretty quiet on the Tales front.

Thankfully, overnight, Bandai Namco has released new information about Tales of Arise.

The original announcement told us that the game would be about “two people, born on different worlds, each looking to change their fate and create a new future.

We now get to see a little bit more of that in the latest trailer:

As you can see in the trailer, the game has also been confirmed for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. It’s the first time since 2008’s Tales of Vesperia that the franchise has been available on the Xbox platform.

Information from the latest issue of Japanese magazine Famitsu also confirms the anime studio “ufotable” will be working on the anime sequences for Tales of Arise. In the article, it’s mentioned that the scenes that are “some of the longest in the history of the series”. Previously, ufotable have worked on Fate/Zero, God Eater, and Demon Slayer. Whew.

If that trailer wasn’t enough for you, here’s seven minutes of gameplay showing off the battle system. You can check that out below:

With the announcement of a PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S version, it’s been confirmed that these versions will have a performance mode, running at 60 frames per second, as well as a resolution mode running at 4K resolution.
