Bandai Namco Entertainment describes the game as follows:
Tales of ARISE carries the DNA of the much-loved Tales of franchise while also introducing an advanced “Atmospheric Shader” and evolved combat system that allow for a 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.
Tales of Arise launches on September 10, 2021 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
