Game News Tales of Arise: when the studio behind Demon Slayer redoes the game’s introductory scene, it’s still just as explosive

Released last year, Tales of Arise is the latest installment in the Tales of saga. One of the standard bearers of the Japanese role-playing game was a hit when it was released in September 2021. A success partly due to the quality of the title’s animations.

Ufotable back in control

Released in September 2021, Tales of Arise seduces. It offers approximately forty hours of playable content (depending on play styles), all wrapped up in quality art direction including the various bonus and ultimate move animations. The title, developed and published by Bandai Namco, is also hailed by the depth of its not so binary history. It is all the more appreciated as it is punctuated by animated cutscenes produced by ufotable, the animation studio in charge of the explosive Kimetsu no Yaiba / Demon Slayer. Yesterday, Bandai Namco decided to publish a new introductory cinematic, still produced by ufotable. If it spoils (very slightly) one of the clashes of the title, the cutscene remains spectacular and we can only appreciate the work done by the Japanese studio.

An anime coming soon?

A quality work that gives us hope for a port of the game in an animated adaptation… Even if there is little hope of seeing it happen one day. We can console ourselves with the series Scarlet Nexus, directly adapted from the Bandai video game. Both productions were released in June. And if the animated adaptation was less unanimous, the game remains a good JRPG whose narrative principle is well exploited.

For ufotable fans, we can find them a minima for four projects: Demon Slayer season 2 is currently streaming (Wakanim). For the other three, it’s still pretty vague. We just know that ufotable is the studio behind the animation series Girl’s Work and two films Katsugeki Touken Ranbu (13th episode of the anime) and Mahoutsukai no Yoru.
