Well, here's our confirmation, straight from Microsoft's press conference at E3 2019!
The Next Tales of, "Tales of Arise" has just been "officially" announced over at Microsoft's Press Conference at E3 2019! Of course, not before being blatantly leaked online prior to the conference.
So there's really not much new to add to that leak aside from the confirmation that, well, it's real, and a stunning new trailer.
Without further ado, our Next Tales of game, "Tales of Arise" will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC next year, 2020.
UPDATED with the trailer, artwork, screenshots and information from the official press release.
Check out the reveal trailer below (the press trailer is a bit different from the E3 conference trailer, which only had music):

Check out the stunning visuals from the game trailer.
From the trailer, we're introduced to what seems to be the hero and heroine, previously shown in the leaks. It seems our hero is able to draw out a sword from the heroine. Also, heroine wields a gun. There's also another character shown very briefly in one of the scenes.

This would be the second time we got a major game reveal during a Microsoft conference in E3, with Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition having been announced first during the said conference in last year's E3. Hopefully, this is looking to be Bandai Namco Entertainment's attempt at being more "global" with their Tales of releases.
Tales of Ariseis now available for pre-order at the following shops: North America:
We'll probably be getting more information on Tales of Arise during the upcoming Tales of Festival 2019. We'll be covering the event again with the help of Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe, so see you then!
