Publisher and developer Bandai Namco have released a survey for players of their latest JRPG action-adventure, Tales of Arise. Naturally, the contents of this player survey are what one would expect as several questions ask for general feedback on the title’s gameplay and presentation. In addition, however, there are a few thought-provoking questions that hint at previous franchise games receiving current releases.
For instance, one of the survey questions asks, “Which of the following games would you like to play a remaster version of?” Many titles are choosable here, including the Tales of Xillia duology, Tales of Phantasia, Tales of the Abyss, and even Tales of the world-Radiant Mythology-.
Another question asks, “Which of the following Tales of games would you be interested in seeing released in Europe?” Old-school games are listed here like Tales of Rebirth, Tales of Destiny, and Tales of Destiny 2.
While this is merely a survey that by no means acts as any confirmation for any of these prior titles receiving new releases, it’s certainly possible depending on if demand is strong enough. With that being said, I encourage taking this survey and letting your voice be heard if you want older Tales of games to be playable on modern platforms.

Tales of Arise advances the graphics with the new “Atmospheric shader,” which presents 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 has launched worldwide on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC.
