Bandai Namco has confirmed in a recent interview that the upcoming Tales of Arise won't come with any multiplayer support.

Do they mean like coop? Not sure I understand what this even means otherwise.
Most Tales of game had co-op that allowed multiple players to take control of party members in battle
That confirms it'll truly be one of the best entries in the series!
Why does a JRPG need multiplayer?
It used to be fun back in the day to tackle the bosses and do combos together. But it was easier back then with how the camera was kinda 2d side scroller; i doubt multi-player would work well with this one anyway.
Not gon lie but Granblue Fantasy relink looks incredibly fun with coop.. so I assume it be the case here.
It should be
Well that sucks. Multiplayer rpg should be a standard at this point.
I see this as an absolute win.
I'm still getting collector's edtion day 1
I'm hyped about this one.
I am glad their focus is on the story first and foremost.
as it should!
Well, i liked having the option to connect a second controller and play with a friend. And that didn't change the story. it was always story focused. I don't know why the multiplayer would be a problem, since it was just a "battle thing", you couldn't do anything else it you weren't the Player 1. You couldn't notice the multiplayer part, if not in combat. Well, that option has gone :P Unless i'm misunderstanding something...
Here's the problem, did they mean multiplayer as in coop? If that's the case this game went from a possible Day 1 to "wait for a sale" because playing games like Tales of Symphonia and Vesperia were excellent due to coop.
Good. I think this one is going to be big for the series. Can't wait for the PS5 version
