The development cycle of Tales of Arise has been a curious one. Anticipation surrounding the game has been high since its announcement, not just because it looks quite promising, but also because it’s promising to reinvent Bandai Namco’s role playing franchise. After being announced at E3 2019 though, other than a trailer at Tokyo Game Show a few months later, there have been next to no updates on the game, a situation made even more frustrating by the game’s delay.

Bandai Namco promised recently that more information on the game would be shared soon, and true to their word, they’ve released a new story trailer for the upcoming RPG. Tales of Arise will see dual protagonists – a man named Alphen and a woman named Shionne – embarking on a journey together. Shionne’s home world of Rena is technologically and magically superior, and holds power over the medieval world of Dahna – which is where Alphen hails from – subjecting its people to slavery.

Bandai Namco have also promised that more new information on the game will be shared not long from now, in the Spring. The developer said not too long ago that the RPG was in the final stages of its development, so hopefully we’ll be hearing about a release date soon.

Tales of Arise is in development for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. There’s no word yet on whether PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions are also in the works. For what it’s worth, this newest trailer doesn’t mention the new consoles.
