In Tales of Arise, you play as Alphen and Shionne as they attempt to save the planet Dahna from the oppressive rule of the star Rena. The story of Arise is supposed to be more mature and hit on more essential themes than its predecessors. The game features the active JRPG combat that the Tales series is known for with an updated battle system. More directs effects and attacks have been added in order to add more spectacle to the game and give players better feedback on their actions. Tales of Arise makes use of an Atmospheric Shader to create fantastic-looking 3D visuals.
Tales of Arise will release September 10 on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. The game is currently available for preorder on all platforms, with bonus costumes and accessories included as a preorder bonus.
