Tales of Arise is going to be something special. From just the first hour with the demo, I can already see that this game has it all; gorgeous aesthetics, amazing characters, and a combat system that JRPG fans are going to love.
I remain terrible as always at Tales combat – and no, it makes no sense to me either how I can get through Nioh and Dark Souls, and yet continue to struggle with Tales combat – but I really like it anyway, and I think that this is going to be a massive hit for both fan and newcomer alike on full release.
Stay tuned for our review closer to launch!
