New Tales Of Arise Trailer Introduces New Characters, More To Come This Summer

The new trailer introduces a few new members of the heroic crew, as well as a powerful villain.


A brand-new trailer for Tales of Arise premiered during the Summer Game Fest, introducing some new faces that will be fighting alongside (and against) players.

The new Tales of Arise trailer opens with a glimpse of what looks to be a major villain, taking down multiple creatures with little effort. This is also our first look into what the official press release calls an "atmospheric shader," a new visual tool developed by Bandai Namco that "adds subtle touches to the look and feel of the world evoking a hand-drawn painting."

Combat is also highlighted in the trailer, showing two characters in the midst of battle. One is a staff-wielding warrior seen attacking a monster with swift strikes and magic-imbued spinning attacks, while the other is a paladin-like knight who throws her shield toward enemies for massive damage.

Tales of Arise will launch September 10 for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC. More information on the game is expected in the coming weeks.
