Tales of Arise 1st Anniversary Party Announced For September 25 in Japan

Celebrate with the Arise cast

To commemorate the 1st anniversary of Tales of Arise, an anniversary party, to be held face to face, is scheduled for September 25 this year.

Critically acclaimed Tales of Arise, the latest entry in the Tales of Series and having sold more than 2 million copies within its first year of release, will be celebrating its 1st anniversary on September 9. To commemorate, an anniversary party will be held for the game.

The event, aptly named Tales of Arise 1st Anniversary Party, will be held on September 25, 2022, featuring new artwork of the cast.

It will be a face to face event at the Yokosuka Arts Theater in Kanagawa and will have two time slots for the day:

  • AM Time slot - 2:30PM JST open, 3:30PM JST event start
  • PM Time slot - 6:00PM JST open, 7:00PM JST event start

The staff also warns that the game's story or spoilers may be rampant during the event.

Cast

The anniversary party, similar to the other anniversary parties held in the past, will feature the voice actors of the game.

  • Alphen - Takuya Satou
  • Shionne - Shino Shimojo
  • Rinwell - Sayuri Hara
  • Law - Yoshitsugu Matsuoka
  • Kisara - Haruna Ikezawa
  • Dohalim - Yasuyuki Kase
  • Zephyr - Jin Yamanoi

Tickets

Tickets are on sale for 9,500 Yen via lottery for reserved seating. Each person can enter up to 4 seats in the lottery. Asobi Store Premium members currently have an advanced ticket selling until July 10th, while other ticket stores (ePlus, etc) will have lottery up on July 22 to August 7. Regular general sales of remaining seats begin on August 20th.

Merchandise Pre-sale

Merchandise pre-orders are currently open from July 1st to July 18th at Asobi Store. The event recommends getting your items in advance, as only a few select items will be available for on-site selling. Again, the store is Japan only, so you will need a proxy or a friend to order from them. We personally recommend FromJapan.

The Tales of Arise 1st Anniversary Party is part of the new "Road to TOF" event, which is a series of events leading up to Tales of Festival 2023 next year. It is the first event leading up to the Festival. Read more about it here.
