Tales of Arise Gets New Gameplay & Screenshots Showing Skits, Fishing, Cooking, Costumes, & More

Today Bandai Namco showcased a lot of gameplay and new screenshots of the upcoming cross-generation JRPG Tales of Arise.

Today Bandai Namco showcased a lot of gameplay and new screenshots of the upcoming cross-generation JRPG Tales of Arise, presented by brand producer Yusuke Tomizawa himself.

We start by taking a look at the intermission skits that happen during camping, followed by a look at how costumes and accessories will actually appear within skits this time around since they’re rendered in 3D.

Next, we get a good look at fishing and cooking, on top of more battle gameplay featuring Kisara.

Bandai Namco then showcased the Looking for an Owl feature that prompts you to search Hootle’s friends in the world and receive rewards. The last look at gameplay showcases artifacts.

We also get a good look at the costume packs that come with the special editions in new screenshots,

We hear from Tomizawa-san that DLC are also planned (there is also a plan to sell the bonus costumes showcased below separately). The size of the game is comparable with Tales of Berseria. Bandai Namco is also considering whether to provide a demo to the public. More information about that may be revealed at a late date.

You can see all the footage and images below, with the video set at the correct timings. We also get an interview with composer Motoi Sakuraba focusing on the music.

Tales of Arise is coming on September 10 (September 9 in Japan) for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

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.”
