Tales of Arise Supposed to be Own Unique New IP

Wasn't supposed to be called Tales of Arise.

Bandai Namco Entertainment has recently shared some juicy details about Tales of Arise.

The guys behind the production of Tales of Arise recently spoke with website Denfaminicogamer (translated by Noisy Pixel) revealing some interesting details about the game’s development. Producer Yusuke Tomizawa and Director Hirokazu Kagawa revealed that the game was not supposed to be called a Tales of game. It was going to be called simply “Arise.”

The Tales of team wanted to make a new IP that they have developed. It was such an innovative project that they were not sure if they should put Tales of to it.

In the end, the team finally decided to call it Tales of Arise, but one would only wonder if it followed through as Arise only. It had a different vibe compared to other Tales of titles in the whole series.

Tales of Arise is now available PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
