Tales of Arise Receives New Update; DLC Pop-Ups at Campfires Now Removable & Save Data Transfer From Last-Gen to Current-Gen Now Possible

Publisher and developer Bandai Namco has released a new update for their JRPG action-adventure, Tales of Arise. This update allows players to disable the DLC windows that normally appear at campfires. This inclusion vexed many players, so the ability to abolish it all together is appreciated.

Additionally, save data can now be transferred from PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, respectively. To do so, the new ‘Save Data Upload’ option on the main menu must be utilized on PlayStation 4/Xbox One release of the title, with ‘Save Data Download’ on the PlayStation 5/Xbox Series X|S being utilized soon after.

It is also worth noting that trophies will be carried over between PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, but not from Xbox One to Xbox Series X|S. Lastly, save data can only be transferred from last-gen to current-gen, not vice versa. More details on how to perform this save data transfer process can be read on Bandai Namco’s official website.
