Tales of Arise Drops Three Trailers, Including Music and Gameplay

Three new videos are out to show us more of the RPG Tales of Arise.

In this video, which is just under two minutes, you can see the opening animation by ufotable and listen to the theme song “Hibana,” which is performed by Kankaku Piero.

This video lets us see almost five minutes’ worth of gameplay.

This video is about a Blu-ray Disc that will have songs with animation from different parts of the Tales franchise.

Bandai Namco Entertainment gave this description for the new game:

Tales of Arise takes place in a solar system containing the two neighboring planets of Dahna and Rena. The inhabitants of Dahna have always paid reverence to their planetary neighbors on Rena – a planet they can clearly see in their sky – as a land of the righteous and divine. For the people of Dahna, legends and lore about Rena and its inhabitants have been handed down for countless generations, and through time, have become facts in their minds that have actually masked a cruel reality for the people of Dahna. For 300 years, the people of Rena have ruled over Dahna, pillaging the planet of its resources and stripping its people of their dignity and freedom. Tales of Arise begins with two people, born on different worlds, each longing to change their fate and create a new future for themselves and perhaps their people. Featuring an original cast of characters, a dramatic storyline, dynamic combat, breath-taking environments, with some classic Tales Of elements included; Tales of Arise marks a new beginning for the famed JRPG franchise.”
