Game Informer shared a new one online video gameplay dedicated to Tales of Arise, Bandai Namco’s action RPG coming soon. The footage focuses mainly on one boss fight, Lord Balseph. You can see the extremely spectacular combat above.
Lord Balseph is one of the boss fights of the early stages of the game. However, the gameplay video also includes some generic battles against common enemies and some exploration of the Tales of Arise game world.
Recall that in Tales of Arise we will take control of alphen, a boy who has lost his memory and who is in the forced labor camps of Balseph. The young man has his face covered by a mask (through which he can still see) and does not perceive any physical pain. Lord Balseph is a powerful and violent Rhenish general. The female lead who fights alongside Alphen is Shionne, a girl who can inflict excruciating pain (unwittingly) on anyone who touches her.
We had the opportunity to try the first hours of Tales of Arise and in our article we explained to you that: “The more we try Tales of Arise the more we like it. Of course, the game structure does not differ much from the best Tales of, but the renewed combat system, a really interesting and multifaceted universe, well-characterized characters and a finally evolved technical sector are more than enough elements to dramatically raise our expectations. Maybe it won’t be a revolutionary JRPG, but there is serious potential that it is in any case of a title of excellent quality. We’ll see. “
