Tales Of Arise Review
YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE
There’s something about late summer/early fall and JRPGs that seem to go together. Throughout my life, I’ve played some of the best JRPGs around this time every year, and have grown to expect to play an engrossing fantasy-sci-fi epic as the days get shorter and cooler. Luckily, Bandai Namco has released Tales of Arise this year to sate my hunger for a good JRPG, and I can say with all authority that I am satisfied.
Tales of Arise is the newest in the long-standing Tales series, one that dates back 25 years. To put that into perspective, Final Fantasy just celebrated its 30th anniversary, so Tales is not that far behind. Like most Tales games, this one is a new story, borrowing gameplay elements from its predecessors and contemporaries. It keeps the series fresh and makes it easy for newbies to jump into a game without worrying about what has come before.
