Forums - Gaming Discussion - Tales of Arise Officially announced! New beginning for the Tales series

Tales of Arise is the latest chapter in the popular Tales Of Japanese role-playing-game franchise. With Yusuke Tomizawa (head of the God Eater franchise) at the helm of the Tales Of development team, the franchise and its latest chapter promise to deliver new storylines, gameplay dynamics, and worlds for players to explore.

Tales of Arise takes place in a solar system containing the two neighboring planets of Dahna and Rena. The inhabitants of Dahna have always paid reverence to their planetary neighbors on Rena – a planet they can clearly see in their sky – as a land of the righteous and divine. For the people of Dahna, legends and lore about Rena and its inhabitants have been handed down for countless generations, and through time, have become facts in their minds that have actually masked a cruel reality for the people of Dahna. For 300 years, the people of Rena have ruled over Dahna, pillaging the planet of its resources and stripping its people of their dignity and freedom. Tales of Arise begins with two people, born on different worlds, each longing to change their fate and create a new future for themselves and perhaps their people. Featuring an original cast of characters, a dramatic storyline, dynamic combat, breath-taking environments, with some classic Tales Of elements included; Tales of Arise marks a new beginning for the famed JRPG franchise.

Doubtful.  But it is an appealing looking game

It looks amazing, a huuuuuuuge improvement from previous games in the series. I really can't wait to see more party members and details about the combat system. I hope the theme song for the game is by Flow.



So far this is probably among my top 3 games from the entire event that I'm most looking forward to. It looks great and they actually showed real gameplay instead of just CGI.

Party members? 



It's so... pretty! I need to hurry up and play Zestiria, Berseria and Vesperia Definitive before this comes out, because if I play this game first I imagine it'll ruin all previous games for me based on graphics alone, lol :P



The town design looks promising, but with just some scenary shots is hard to tell how well that will be done.

That is about all I can tell from the trailer, need to listen to the music and see more than a handful of seconds of combat.



Let's have a champion time!
