Bandai Namco kicked off July 2021 with some Tales of Arise teases. For starters, it released a video of Producer Yusuke Tomizawa, Director Hirokazu Kagawa, and Art Director Minoru Iwamoto. In it, they talk about Tales of Arise theme, which is “inheritance and evolution,” and how it applies to different gameplay elements. The Twitter account also shared another piece of ufotable art from the Tales of Arise opening animation.

First, here’s the look at how “inheritance and evolution” appears in Tales of Arise‘s story, battle system, and character designs.

Bandai Namco’s teased the Tales of Arise opening animation quite a few times. Back in May 2021, for example, it showed ufotable’s depiction of Rinwell on Twitter. The latest tweet showed off Alphen. The full debut will appear during the July 5, 2021 stream.

Tales of Arise will release for 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.
