Can you believe it’s coming up on two years since Tales of Arise?

Lately I’ve found myself wondering when the next Tales game will be announced.

Two years isn’t such a long time to wait for most series, but the 5-year gap between Berseria and Arise was unusual for Tales, and even then, Arise was announced in 2019.

Now, the time since Arise hasn’t been completely devoid of Tales games. Tales of Luminaria, the latest in their long line of ill-fated mobile games, came out in January 2022 and shut down 6 months later. Tales of Symphonia also got a remaster, although one of questionable enough quality compared to the other versions that I didn’t get it despite it being one of my favorite games of all time.

But neither of those is enough to keep me from looking forward to the next Tales announcement, whether it’s the next entry in the series or another remaster. For that matter, we still don’t know what Tales of Arise: Beyond the Dawn is.

It would be strange for DLC to come out after all this time, so an adaptation feels more likely now.

(Meanwhile, in that post from when Beyond the Dawn’s trademark first surfaced, I lamented the lack of news related to Capcom’s Apollo Justice trademark, so I’m happy to look back on that now that we have the Apollo Justice Trilogy coming next year.)

Some sort of Tales news is set for this Thursday at 4 AM PT / 7 AM ET, but it’s not clear if it’ll be a game announcement or something else entirely. I have my fingers crossed, though.

When do you think the next Tales game will be announced?

  1. Tales of Luminaria 😭

    I still never got around to Tales of Arise… I feel bad about that, but not as bad as owning NEO TWEWY for 2 years and still not starting it… maybe next month, after I get through some other games… It did look good, and I’m sure I could get it at a decent sale price these days, if I feel like I’ll have the time for it!

  2. […] in the world have I been impatient for a new Tales announcement?? How about playing those 7 games first, and then I can want a new […]
