Tales of Arise (テイルズ オブ アライズ Teiruzu obu Araizu?) is an upcoming mothership Tales title. It was announced on June 9, 2019, during Microsoft's E3 2019 presentation. First information regarding the game leaked on June 7, 2019, and quickly spread over the Internet.
The inhabitants of the planet Dahna have always revered Rena, the planet in the sky, as a land of the righteous and divine. However, the stories passed down across the generations have distorted the truth for the people of Dahna. Rena has ruled over Dahna for the past 300 years, pillaging the world beneath of its resources and its people of their dignity and freedom.
Astral energy (星霊力 Seireiryoku?, "Star Spirit Power") resides in all living things. However only Renans are able to use this power in the form of astral artes (星霊術 Seireijutsu?, "Star Spirit Artes") and when used the user's eyes briefly glow in blue. The torch-flame sword (炎の剣 Homura no Tsurugi?) is a manifestation of Shionne's astral energy.
The story begins with two people born on different worlds, each looking to change their fate and create a new future.
- Alphen (アルフェン Arufen?) - A mask-wearing man from Dahna who has lost his memories as well as his capability to feel pain. Borrowing the blazing sword from Shionne just after meeting her, he fights for his freedom from Rena.
- Shionne (シオン Shion?) - A girl from Rena who brings the curse of thorns to whoever touches her. With an ulterior motive of her own, she allies herself with Alphen and fights against her own people.
