The game will offer a new Boost Strike system where players can chain combos with party members, as well as a graphics shader “inspired by anime and watercolor painting.” Also promised by Bandai Namco’s website are a “mix of unique, natural” environments that change depending on the time of day and ufotable-produced animation at key points of the story.

The Bandai Namco website describes Tales of Arise as:

For 300 years, Rena has ruled over Dahna, pillaging the planet of its resources and stripping people of their dignity and freedom.

Our tale begins with two people, Alphen and Shionne, born on different worlds, each looking to change their fate and create a new future.

Featuring a diverse cast of characters, intuitive and rewarding combat system, and a captivating story set in a lush world worth fighting for, Tales of Arise delivers a first-class JRPG experience.
