Bandai Namco has officially announced that the next Tales game is called Tales of Arise and will be coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in 2020 with both English and Japanese voice work. This entry will see Yusuke Tomizawa, who is head of the God Eater franchise, at the helm of the development team and will take the franchise to a new place as it delivers new storylines, gameplay dynamics, and worlds for players to explore. Tales of Arise takes place in a solar system containing the two neighboring planets of Dahna and Rena.
The inhabitants of Dahna have always paid reverence to their planetary neighbors on Rena – a planet they can clearly see in their sky – as a land of the righteous and divine. For the people of Dahna, legends and lore about Rena and its inhabitants have been handed down for countless generations, and through time, have become facts in their minds that have actually masked a cruel reality for the people of Dahna. For 300 years, the people of Rena have ruled over Dahna, pillaging the planet of its resources and stripping its people of their dignity and freedom. Tales of Arise begins with two people, born on different worlds, each longing to change their fate and create a new future for themselves and perhaps their people.
