VGChartz's Thomas Froehlicher: "Tales of Arise is a near perfect comeback for the series. It's clear proof that taking your time and investing in superior technology can eventually lead to a greater game experience. Throughout, you can feel Bandai Namco's resolve to provide a state-of-art JRPG, one that's thoroughly enjoyable in almost every respect, from story, to visuals, combat, and side content. This revival of the Tales of series is outstanding, even more so in an industry where many Japanese video game makers prefer to play it safe, lowering their ambitions in order to protect their earnings. By innovating and investing in Tales of Arise, as well as Scarlet Nexus earlier this year, Bandai Namco is leading the way to the next generation of JRPGs."
