The official Tales of Youtube channel has uploaded a new showcase video of the upcoming Tales of Arise, revealing the title’s skits and other activities in action. Cooking and camping are shown off at first, with fishing being shown off soon after.
Skits are the highlight of this trailer, with them being far more active and less constrained than in past entries. Additionally, different character outfits from their norm are seen, presumably implying that equipped cosmetic alterations might change the look of skits, or some skits simply have characters wearing different outfits. Regardless, seeing this iconic facet of the franchise return with new life invigorating its presentation is thrilling and excites me for the full release even more.
You can view this new trailer for Tales of Arise below; once again, it is entirely in Japanese:
Tales of Arise advances the graphics with this new “Atmospheric Shader,” which is meant to present the world as if it were a hand-drawn painting. Further, the combat has evolved, allowing for a better sense of spectacle and direct player feedback based upon their actions. Finally, the graphics, combat system, characters, and story combine to present a vivid and realized world that the developer hopes will immerse players.
Tales of Arise is launching worldwide on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC on September 10, 2021.
