Bandai Namco announced the newest installment in their Tales of series as Tales of Arise, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2020.
Tales of Arise is set on the planet Dahna, where reverence has always been given to the planet in the sky, Rena, which is where the land of the righteous and divine lie. In this world, stories have been handed down for generations and have become the truth, masking the reality for the people of Dahna. For 300 years, Rena has ruled over Dahna, and in that time has pillaged the planet of its resources and stripped the people of their dignity and freedom.
“The Tales Of series is a foundational series within Bandai Namco Entertainment and Tales of Arise marks an exciting new beginning for the franchise with Yusuke Tomizawa taking the helm in leading the Tales Of development team.” said Stephen Akana, Senior Global Brand Manager at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “Tales Of games have always delivered wonderous worlds for players to explore, dynamic characters for players to meet, and challenging battles for players to fight. Tales of Arise promises to take these tenants to new heights and we look forward to players enjoying this new adventure.”
The story follows two people who were born in a separate world, each looking to change their fate. Throughout this adventure, players will be able to meet a new cast of characters, experience the title’s updated combat system, and soak up that classic Tales of gameplay experience.
Tales of Arise is developed using Unreal Engine 4 and features an updated version of the Dynamic Action RPG system.
