Bandai Namco released new gameplay highlighting one of the main protagonists, Alphen.
The trailer showcases a brief introduction to his story where he will do everything in his power to free the Dahnans. What motivates him is pride, but there seems to be something else that is teased at the end of the trailer.
Further, we also get to see the battle system in action and it looks amazing. The weight of the attacks and smooth animations of the combos are just brilliant. I had to watch it a second time.
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. The graphics, combat system, characters, and story all work together 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.
In case you missed it, check out 12-minutes of raw gameplay from the Japanese build.
