Also revealed was a new trailer for the upcoming game, introducing us to a group of new characters. There’s Rowe, a young man who specializes in hand-to-hand combat; Rinwell, a young, female magic user who wields a book; and Biezo, a brutish character armed with an axe. Based on his interactions with our protagonists, Biezo looks to be an enemy.

A seven-minute gameplay demonstration was also released, detailing the game’s real-time battle system in two areas of the game, an unnamed desert and the snow-covered Cyslodia.

Originally slated for a 2020 release, Tales of Arise was delayed due to COVID-19. The long-awaited entry finally arrives on September 9.
