Bandai Namco Entertainment have released gameplay trailers focused on the camping activities in Tales of Arise.
As previously reported, the game takes place on the world of Dahna, where they had worshiped the nearby planet of Rena for 300 years. This reverence lead to the people of that world exploiting Dahna for resources and servitude. The ever crumbling “peace” between the two will soon be exploited by dark forces.
Alphen is former slave of Dahna, robbed of his memories and bound in an iron mask. Teaming up with Shionne, a young woman born from Rena, they seek to overthrow the oppression; as Shionne uses her powers to unleash the power of Alphen’s sword.
Bandai Namco Entertainment of America have revealed a gameplay trailer (via RPG Site) focused on the party enjoying their downtime between battles and adventures. Players can cook food for the party, fish, and even raise livestock on a farm.
Interaction skits between party members also return, as with prior Tales of games. While the interactions are more than just portraits now, the skits still use the charm of limited animation.
Meanwhile, Bandai Namco Europe have released their overview trailer, showing snippets of the fishing, farming, cooking, and skit. The latter seems to be shown with full animation however.
You can find both trailers below.
