Wow, it's been a while since we wrote about Tales of Arise, hasn't it? One of our favourite RPGs from 2021 is suddenly back in the spotlight because it's doing a crossover DLC campaign with fellow Bandai Namco title, Scarlet Nexus.

Don't get too excited just yet, though. These DLC offerings come in the form of weapons and cosmetic accessories — there's no indication of additional quests or character cameos, as was the case with Tales of Arise's Sword Art Online DLC.

So what's the deal? Well, in Tales of Arise, you're getting a new sword for Alphen that's based on Yuito's katana from Scarlet Nexus, plus a funny-looking accessory that you can stick on a character's head.

Meanwhile, in Scarlet Nexus, Yuito is getting Alphen's signature Blazing Blade as a weapon, and you'll be able to equip your party with Alphen's broken mask as a cosmetic item.

It hasn't been confirmed, but we assume that these DLC items will be free for existing players. We'll update this article when Bandai Namco shares more information.
