Tales of the Stage returns, this time to tell a story about Tales of Arise!
A new rendition of the Tales of the Stage stage plays entitled "Tales of Arise Online Theater: Liberators -希望を託されし解放者たち-" (kibou wo takusa reshi kaihousha tachi, literally "The Liberators Entrusted With Hope") has been announced during Day One of Tales of Festival 2021.
The new stage play will be delivered online via Asobi Stage on March 26 and 27, 2022 and tells the story of Arise from different viewpoints in their past, not told in the original story from the game. Though not yet explicitly announced, the YouTube description of the trailer mentions that the online theater is planned for a "worldwide release".

Though the delivery of the play will be online, the play itself will be acted out at Bandai Namco Entertainment Japan's newly opened MIRAIKEN studio, found at their head office. The studio is divided into two parts: Studio A is a huge stage with walls and floors covered in LED, while Studio B is used for recordings and motion capturing. You can see the studio in action below (at 1:30).
