Tales of Arise 2021

It sure has been a while since we heard anything official about Tales of Arise. The next instalment in Bandai Namco's long running RPG series was announced over a year ago at E3 2019, and it's basically been missing in action ever since.

In fact, Tales of Arise was actually 'delayed' earlier this year, despite never having a specific release date outside of '2020'. Like many ongoing projects, its development was significantly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, with Bandai Namco essentially telling us wouldn't be seeing the game for quite some time.

Fortunately, Tales of Arise will return in 2021. That's according to Famitsu, who also report that development is "going well". It's also worth noting that next year marks the 25th anniversary of the Tales franchise, so it all lines up quite nicely.

Here's hoping that we finally get to see Tales of Arise in action, because that announcement trailer still has us intrigued.
