Recently, Tales of Arise producer Yusuke Tomizawa hosted a live Questions and Answers show for the first time some new features for Tales ’upcoming RPG. The stream, which you can find at official Youtube channel of Japanese Tales in its entirety (unfortunately, without subtitles), it revealed some chunks of information and includes some unpublished images that include a drawing you can see above. (There is a version with Japanese voice interpretation and English subtitles here).
Skits are a staple of the Tales series: on the road, group members occasionally chat and a sequence of conversations begins. Unlike Dragon Age, where team members talk to each other as they walk, Tales ’drawings traditionally looked like a novel visual sequence, with slightly animated 2D images of characters on top of a text box. In Tales of Arise, the drawings are now in 3D. They’re more dynamic thanks to the alternation of panels and characters, so it looks more like you’re watching a movie sequence and less like just reading some text aloud.
The outline leads to some images of what Tales' team calls "lifestyle characteristics": fishing and farming, which allow you to prepare some delicious food. Tomizawa promised "many types of fish, some of which will taste good and some of which will not." The game has really reached its peak.

In the camp, the characters can chat with each other and strengthen their bonds in this way. The stream also showed some battle and revealed some DLC costumes. The costumes will be the only TLC of Tales of Arise: Bandai Namco has no other content in the story than what you get with the base game.
The most interesting information in the questions and answers section is that a demo will arrive before publication. Tomizawa also compared the duration to the more recent game, Tales of Berseria, which lasts approximately 40 hours to empty if you focus on its history.
The PC version doesn't seem to be as disappointing as some old Tales games, with support for custom key combinations, 144 Hz refresh rates, more graphics options, and a photo mode, such as the Tales versions. console. Tales of Arise will be released on September 10th everything we know Bye now.
