Bandai Namco has released a trailer for Tales of Arise, the next entry in the Tales JRPG series and the footage shown gives a brief look at both the story as well as combat. The story follows two protagonists. Alphen is a character that wields a dangerous weapon that brings him harm, but he can’t feel any pain even though he is getting injured. Shionne is a character that heals others but anyone who touches her experiences great pain.
Tales of Arise marks a new era for the Tales series with this game being powered by Unreal Engine 4, and the battle system is geared towards a dynamic action RPG combat style, which will bring some changes to the action RPG battle system. The trailer does show some impressive visual elements like the grass being affected by the fire power of Alphen’s sword. Tales of Arise is expected to release in 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
