UPDATED: Next Tales of 'Tales of Arise' Officially Announced, Out in 2020, New Trailer Released

Rumor no more!

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.

Challenge the Fate That Binds You

On the planet Dahna, reverence has always been given to Rena, the planet in the sky, as a land of the righteous and divine. Stories handed down for generations became truth and masked reality for the people of Dahna.

For 300 years, Rena has ruled over Dahna, pillaging the planet of its resources and stripping people of their dignity and freedom.

Our tale begins with two people, born on different worlds, each looking to change their fate and create a new future.

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 Arise is now available at the following shops (Note: Please keep in mind that we may receive a commission when you click on our links and make a purchase. This, however, has no bearing on our reviews and comparisons.):
