Tokyo Game Show 2019 has concluded and there’s a lot of information coming from Japan for various games. One of which is Tale of Arise, the 17th game in the “Tales of” JRPG series, and Bandai Namco released a new trailer to show more of the new game, which you can watch above.
The last game in the famed JPRG was Tales of Berseria, which was released in 2016. That’s a rather long gap considering that past titles were mostly a year apart. Why are they taking longer than usual? Because the developers are no longer using Bandai Namco’s inhouse graphics engine, which was used for previous titles for years. Arise is being built using Unreal Engine 4.
And that’s the biggest head-turner for Tales of Arise since its announcement — the graphical upgrade. It’s looking great so far and the art style the series is known for seems to be properly maintained with the use of Unreal Engine 4. Check out how the game looks with these screenshots below.
The battle system the series is known for will also make a return and we can expect more about the game in the coming months as Tales of Arise is planned for a 2020 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
