New Tales of Arise in-engine trailer introduces Shionne and Alphen

Bandai Namco has released a new in-engine trailer for Tales of Arise in which the publisher reveals the names of the brave protagonists fighting for freedom. Tales of Arise will be using Unreal Engine 4 and promises to feature a high quality animation system, as well as a dynamic action RPG battle system that will be mostly faithful to the series.

Shionne is a girl from the planet Rena, who is cursed with “Thorns”, which causes pain to anyone and everyone she touches. Alphen is a young man from the planet Dahna who feels no pain and bears no memories. Equipped with their own ideals and values, they band together and decide to fight for the freedom of Dahna.

Tales of Arise is currently scheduled for release in 2020.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
