Tales of Arise Gets Western Opening Cutscene With English Theme Song by Kankaku Piero

Today Bandai Namco Entertainmnent released the English version of the opening cutscene of its cross-generation Tales JRPG Tales of Arise.

Today Bandai Namco Entertainmnent released the English version of the opening cutscene of its cross-generation Tales JRPG Tales of Arise.

This video is different from the one showcased earlier today, as this is still performed by the Japanese rock band Kankaku Piero, but it’s actually sung in English. The title is the same “Hibana” as the Japanese version.

The animation is the same, created by Ufotable.

You can watch it below.

Here are the lyrics:

I want to feel your heart right now
You are the place my only hope

Oh I’m barely breathing and beaten to the ground
But each and every time
We all stand up

Stop lying to yourself and be true to yourself and then maybe
We both can exceed destiny

So let’s shout it out
You might feel alone
But I’m right by your side

Just like the flowers that bloom and fall
Repeat over and over again
Keep the flame alive

I want to feel your heart right now
You are the place my only hope
I know…
We can one day

We spark like flowers in the sky
No matter where I’m by your side
I know…
You and I

Let’s grind our souls and wield together
Can you feel my heart beat?
So take my hand to new tomorrow
Don’t hold back and let it be
You give me strength and keep brave to dive in darkness
Let’s burn yeah light it up
Spark just like HIBANA

Light up our HIBANA

If you’re unfamiliar with the game, you can read an official description below and my hands-on preview.

“Tales of ARISE follows the story of Alphen, an iron-masked individual whose home planet of Dahna has been enslaved and stripped of natural resources for the past 300 years by the nearby planet of Rena. As Alphen fights to free his people he encounters Shionne, a girl from Rena who is on the run from her countrymen. Both Alphen and Shionne will be joined throughout the journey by a supporting cast of characters to help in their fight for freedom.

Tales of ARISE carries the DNA of the much-loved Tales of franchise while also introducing advanced graphics and an evolved combat system to help push the series into the future. A new “Atmospheric Shader” developed by BANDAI NAMCO Studios adds subtle touches to the look and feel of the world evoking a hand-drawn painting. Combat has also evolved, allowing for a better sense of spectacle and direct player feedback based upon their actions. The graphics, combat system, characters, and story all work together to present a vivid and realized world that will immerse players as they are transported to the many environments and biomes they will explore throughout their time with Tales of ARISE.”
