Previous iterations of the event took place during the localizations of Tales of Xillia in 2013 & Tales of Xillia 2 in 2014, and I thought I'd bring it back one more time for Tales of Arise's release!
Check out the Overview Video below to see how everything came together:
There will be three Tales of games which were determined by polls earlier this year streamed over the course of 9 days.
