Another Eden Announces Tales of Arise & Symphonia Collab; Playable Alphen, Shionne, Colette & Lloyd, Skits, Owl-Finding & More

Wright Flyer Studios has announced that their free-to-play title, Another Eden: The Cat Beyond Time and Space, will collab with the Bandai Namco-developed action JRPGs, Tales of Arise and Tales of Symphonia, starting December 20, 2022. Players can look forward to “permanently unlockable heroes from each game, new mechanics inspired by the collaboration titles, and exclusive in-game rewards” until January 11, 2023.

Titled the “Symphony: Crown of the Pale Dawn” event, this will mark the first-ever time that the protagonist and primary heroine of Tales of Arise, Alphen, and Shionne, will appear outside of the Tales of series. Further, Lloyd and Colette are also joining the event to promote the upcoming Tales of Symphonia Remastered.

The Mystic Artes mechanic from the previous Tales of collab will return, with the owl-finding activity from Tales of Arise even being incorporated. Materials and ingredients can be gathered, too, which can grant buffs, restore health, and gradually heighten cooking mastery. And if those inclusions weren’t enough, fully voiced Skits will be present as well, with responses altering the course of conversations.

“Tales of Arise Beyond the Dawn” was recently trademarked in Europe.

We recently discussed the number of Tales of games that have never been localized and those that have never been ported, making most of the franchise notably inaccessible to contemporary audiences.

Tales of Symphonia Remastered will launch Westward for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch on February 17, 2023.
