Tales of Arise official artwork without logo

In an announcement that is unfortunately all too common these days, Bandai Namco's Tales of Arise has now been delayed due to the pandemic. As for the new release date, nothing has been announced just yet as the team is looking to first ensure everything is as polished as it can be before committing to another date.

"While COVID-19 has affected some aspects of development, we’ve done our best to adapt to the situation and have implemented remote development capabilities for our team," reads the brief developer update. "However, we will need more time to achieve the quality and provide the gorgeous experience we envision for our players, and therefore we decided to delay the launch timing for Tales of Arise."

"In the meantime, the determination of our development team has not weakened. It is always darkest before the dawn, as illustrated in the image above. We hope you will join us as a bring a new Tales Of adventure to light. Thank you for your patience and support for 'Tales of Arise' and the 'Tales of' series."

Once a new release date gets announced I'll make sure to let you know since I'm quite eager to get my hands on Tales of Arise as well. Until then, however, you can learn more about Tales of Arise by hopping over to the official website. Enjoy!
