Tales of Arise probably impressed me the most because of what a big makeover it seems to have gotten.
I was getting a 'Gamefreak' vibe from the Tales studio for the past c.a. 15 years where they were doing very minimalistic changes to the games over the course of three console generations. So I'm very happy to see this change, and it's something I'll be happy to support with my money as long as it's a decent game.
Did anybody else feel like some of the scenes did not support mutiple party members?
No, because we see the girl in several scenes that appear to be her fighting.
The dark background here makes it look like it may very well be her Hi Ougi (Mystic Arte).
Along with several other shots of her firing her gun, which would seem extremely odd if she can't participate in combat. And if she can, I doubt she'd only be able to do it alone.
So because of that I went back to inspect the footage, and notice that we even see her fighting alongside the other main character.
That does not signify party members. Cast of characters are specific characters that drive the plot
We'll see, but I wouldn't judge based on a single trailer.
No worries. We see multiple party members in the trailer.
