In our review, Tales of Arise was called “one of the best JRPGs in years” by Alex Donaldson, and other reviewers’ reviews were pretty solid too.
Tales of Arise, the seventeenth main installment in the Tales series, follows two people from opposite worlds who yearn to change their destinies and create a new future for themselves and their people.
In a solar system containing the planets Dahna and Rena, the inhabitants of the former have always paid homage to their neighbors on Rena, seen from the sky, as the land of the just and the divine.
Here, legends and lore about Rena and its people have been passed down through generations and have become facts in their minds over time, masking a grim reality for the people of Dahna.
You see, for 300 years the people of Rena have ruled Dahna and during that time they have plundered the planet’s resources and robbed its people of their dignity and freedom.
Originally slated for a 2020 release, the game was pushed back to 2021 to fix some quality issues and allow the team to release it on more platforms. If you are interested, you can pick up the game on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
