Tales of Arise trailer reveals two new characters

A new trailer for Bandai Namco’s Tales of Arise has been released, introducing two new hero characters – Kisara and Dohalim. The latest entry in the popular Tales JRPG series will release later this year on 10th September for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One and PC.


Kisara and Dohalim will join Alphen, Shionne, Rinwell and Law in their quest to free the region of Dahna and its capital of Viscint from Renan oppression.

Dohalim is a noble who actually hails from Rena, but cuts against the grain with a more favourable view. His personality draws him towards art, music, poetry and antiquities, while he fights with a rod in battle, mixing astral artes to adapt to opponents.

In contrast, Kisara is a Dahnan soldier. She is one of the most powerful soldiers from the Dahnan army, and holds admiration from Renan soldiers. She uses a hammer and shield in battle to deal damage in close combat and protect her allies with wide defensive techniques.

The trailer shows off some of the more spectacular attacks from the game, including the returning Artes from the Tales series, and the Boost Strikes, which are powerful team-up attacks intended to deal the final blow to enemies.

The most recent game in the series, Tales of Berseria, scored an 8/10 in our review at launch. A Definitive Edition of Tales of Vesperia was released in 2019 – you can find our review here.
