Today Bandai Namco released a new trailer of the upcoming Tales of Festival 2020 dedicated to the popular JRPG series.
The year may sound confusing, as the event was supposed to happen last summer in Yokohama. It has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s now happening between March 6 and March 7.
A rich cast of voice actors from past games of the series will be in attendance.
At the moment, we don’t know if we can expect relevant news about Tales of Arise, which has been delayed to 2021, but we did recently hear from producer Yusuke Tomizawa that the publisher is preparing to release more information, so we’ll have to wait and see.
It is worth mentioning that the previous Tales of Festival, hosted in June 2019, did include a trailer and assets showcasing the upcoming game, so there certainly is hope.
In the meanwhile, you can enjoy the trailer below.
Tales of Arise was originally slated for 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game (considering that a long time has passed since the latest reveal), you can read an official description below.
“On the planet Dahna, reverence has always been given to Rena, the planet in the sky, as a land of the righteous and divine. Stories handed down for generations became truth and masked reality for the people of Dahna. For 300 years, Rena has ruled over Dahna, pillaging the planet of its resources and stripping people of their dignity and freedom.
Our tale begins with two people, born on different worlds, each looking to change their fate and create a new future. Featuring a new cast of characters, updated combat, and classic Tales of gameplay mechanics, experience the next chapter in the world-famous Tale of series, Tales of Arise.”
