Another Tales of Arise trailer is here, and this time it focuses on in-depth looks at elements that make the latest installment unique. The extended video spends about five minutes looking at graphical, environmental, and gameplay details after setting up the plot.
First, people are briefly introduced to Alphen, Shionne, Law, Rinwell, Kisara, and Dohalim and why they fight. After the 1:30 mark, it gets into specific elements. Things start by discussing the environments people will get to explore. These include an atmospheric shader, to offer additional details to appearance and day/night cycles. From there, it talks about collecting owls, fishing, and managing your own in-game farm. It also talks about all of the extensive changes to the battle system while showing enemies. There are segments devoted to cooking, crafting, and using skill points to improve party members too.
Here’s the Tales of Arise Forge Your Path trailer. As a reminder, people who want to go in and have the different locations and opponents be a surprise might want to skip watching it. There are some spoilers littered throughout the over five minute overview.
The last Tales of Arise trailer shared offered an opportunity to hear its theme song. People were able to listen to Ayaka’s “Blue Moon” while footage from the JRPG played. However, that video involved some slight spoilers.
Tales of Arise will come to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC on September 9, 2021 in Japan and on September 10, 2021 worldwide. The demo is out now on consoles, and people who play it get a Vacation Hootle accessory in the full game.
